Peruvian Gourd Candle
Candlefy partnered with 'The Lost Children of Peru'. Together we bring you a one-of-a-kind, natural wax candle, poured inside a hand-carved gourd.
'The Lost Children of Peru' operates Casa de Luz (House of Light) for children and families who live on the hillsides of the poorest districts of Lima, Peru.
It is here, where each gourd is hand-carved, based on the indigenous principles and craftsmanship that has been shared over generations of Peruvians. In fact, the Andean tradition of carving gourds dates back more than 4,000 years.
Even today, the process of growing, harvesting, drying, carving, and painting each gourd takes roughly seven months from start to finish. Once the process is completed, we import the gourds to our California pouring facility. Here we careful hand-pour each and every gourd, using our premium quality wax and aroma oils.
The candle is filled with about 14oz of wax and should burn for about 100 hours. Once the candle is burned, you can clean out the gourd and repurpose for home decoration or as a jewelry box.
Lighting one of the three carefully crafted scents – Sandalwood, Driftwood, Teakwood – fills your home with natural, sweet and earthy aromas, while the hand-crafted decorative gourd brings character and beauty to your home. Gourd Candles are available in three scents:
- 3-Pack: You get all three scents and save $20.00.
Expect the best. We hand-pour every candle in our California studio and strictly use the finest quality ingredients. The result is a Premium Scented Candle that burns cleaner, longer and stronger, for truly room filling aromas.
Maximum Scent Load. Our hot throw, meaning the release of fragrance while the candle is burning, is what sets us apart. We achieve an unparalleled scent throw intensity by using a premium coconut-apricot wax blend, our candles include 50% more scent than even the best soy candles in the market.
