Hiba Wood Candles
Designer: Ms. Mineko Muraguch
Brand: Cul de Sac
Long praised in Japan, Aomori Hiba is a slow-growing, long lived cypress tree whose wood has been used in the construction of temples and notable buildings throughout Japan for centuries. Hiba wood is naturally an antiseptic, water-resistant, insect-repelling, and a calming aromatic. Cul de Sac has developed a way to vapor extract the essential oil used in their products from waste lumber harvested from 250 year-old trees, thus recycling this useful and pleasing material.
Item Description: Wood wick candle with a tin foil inner lining surrounded with Hiba wood sticks. Estimated burn time 60 hours.
Materials: Aomori Hiba wood and essential oils from waste lumber
Care Instructions: Upon initial burn, trim wick to 1/4 and let burn for at least four hours or until the pool of wax reaches the walls of the container, this prevents tunneling. Upon subsequent burns, always re-trim wick to 1/4. Use non-flammable solid surface such as a ceramic or glass plate under candle while burning. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
