Handmade Rice Wax Candles (4 Seasons)
Inspired by the colors of spring, summer, fall and winter, this is a set of candles for each of the 4 seasons of the year. Whether it's the dandelions and cherry blossoms of spring, the deep greens of summer, the foliage of fall or the white mountains caps of winter, the candles will help to slow the passage of time so we can stop to appreciate it.
Handmade from natural rice wax, the candles are virtually free of contaminants, allowing them to burn longer with almost no smoke or drippage. Unlike typical candles that are made from hydrocarbons (or fossil fuels), these are environmentally friendly and perfect for indoor use.
Use for your daily meditation, as a timer for taking breaks, or simply to relax and appreciate the four seasons.

Founded in 1914, Daiyo is a 4th generation family business of candlemakers who are based in Shiga prefecture, Japan. There are 2 types of fires, says the company: Hinoe and Hinoto. Hinoe, the elder brother fire, and Hinoto, the younger brother fire, live without hierarchy but in a Yin-Yang relationship.
The elder brother fire is like the flame of a burning sun. It is wild and must be handled with care. The younger brother fire is much smaller, and can be handled with our hands. Fire has been with mankind for longer than history and have offered comfort in many shapes and forms.
"To light a candle is to share the stories in our lives and to establish new relationships." - DAIYO
