Mini Rice Bran Wax Candles {Red & White}

Title:  
$ 13.60 USD

Tiny rice bran wax candles Komenuka Rousoku sold as a set of 10 in the festive Red & White color mix tucked nicely in Daiyo's original lidded box. 

These candles are made with wax taken from rice bran “komenuka” which is a byproduct of the rice milling process. Made with 100% natural and sustainable materials, these Japanese candles are handcrafted by craftsmen in Shiga prefecture by a 100-year-old family run company Daiyo.

The story behind the iconic cat trying to catch a mouse illustrated on the box is that as the Japanese candles use natural wax which mice love, it is said that every Japanese candle maker has always had a cat to keep the mice away from the old days.

Use these candles on a candle stand that has a spike made for Japanese candles in the right size. Some candles may not stand as smoothly as others on the candle stand, but do not push hard as the candles may break. Please try by gently place the candle on the spike of the candle stand. Candle does not have to go as deep, as long as it stays straight it would be fine.

Each tiny candle burns for 15 minutes, so they are great for a quick meditation or for a mini break between stressful desk work, etc. Made with 100% natural and sustainable materials, these Japanese candles are handcrafted by craftsmen in Shiga prefecture by Daiyo.

Traditional Japanese candles are completely handmade and give very little smoke and larger and brighter flame than modern paraffin candles. 

Candle stand does NOT include. These mini candles go with Cast Iron square candle stand "small".
