The Palm Springs scented candle is delicately hand engraved with a palm leaf pattern. The deep khaki colored glass recalls the vegetal spirit of this collection. Spanish explorers called this place in Upper California «la Palma de la mano de dios», the palm of God’s hand. Mexico became independent in 1823 and Upper California was ceded to the United States in 1848. It was then that American topographic engineers used the name Palm Springs on their cartographic surveys in homage to the Californian palm tree that thrives in this region.

A Baobab Collection Candle is one made by hand and with great care. Each candle is hand blown by master glass craftsmen with a unique ancestral knowledge. Every candle is therefore unique. The wax is then hand poured, and can require up to six successive layers and four days of labor.

Always burn your candle until the whole surface becomes liquid. This step may take a long time, especially during the first burning. When the entire top of the wax is liquid, do not burn it longer than one hour. The top layer of liquid wax should never exceed one centimeter in height. Never burn your candle more than the maximum burning time indicated in the candle’s instructions. Never burn it down totally and systematically leave one centimeter at the bottom.
