Description from Kaufmann Mercantile
Hand-poured soy wax candle scented with a proprietary blend of essential oils. Comes in a reusable glazed stoneware vessel. 80-hour burn time. Made in California. Also available in Oakmoss Pine and Sandalwood Spice.
Each of these naturally scented candles are hand-poured by Erika and Pete Panciera at their home studio in the costal city of Encinitas, California. The fragrances are created to evoke a sense of place, and are inspired by scents which waft through the daily life of the makers. This product was designed to last long after the candle has burned away, as the stoneware vessel can be repurposed in many ways. Use it as a coffee cup, pen holder, or plant pot.
A tonal matte bone and gloss white glazed vessel holds this candle, which Erika and Pete named Leucadia, after the area of Encinitas where they live and work. The candle is scented with rosemary, orange and vanilla–distilling down a sampling of the daily aromas that Erika and Pete smell. This includes the wild rosemary bushes that grow alongside the main coastal highway through their town, the citrus trees that cover the southern California countryside, and a touch of creamy vanilla that evokes the comfort and familiarity of home.
