Ancient Agrigento Olive Tree Candle
Nothing is new under the sun. Time is not a line, but an endless circle. As we orbit around, yet again, a new solar return, we are reminded about the cyclical, spiraling nature of things. The seasons remind us we’re in a constant state of coming around to ourselves. Getting back to basics. And reviving all the parts of the world that have stood the test of time.
In that spirit, we’re plumbing the depths of ancient wisdom with our Olive Tree candle — an homage to old things, made suddenly new, and the power inherent in coming around again.
When burning your candle for the first time, allow it to burn for 2 to 3 hours (but never more than 4), until the top layer of the wax has completely melted. This will prevent the wax from tunneling around the wick.
Ideally, we recommend keeping the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times to prevent the candle from emitting smoke or the wick falling into the wax. After each burn, see that the wick is centered in the wax.
This will also ensure that the glass does not overheat. The wick and flame should never be touching the glass.
