Our hand-poured Honey & Tobacco candle has top notes of sweet honey. At the heart there is a blend of cinnamon & nutmeg, while the base note contains amber, patchouli and musk to complete the profile
Our large candles are hand-poured into our 500ml amber jars with our signature Oré mi label and a black gloss lid.
This candle burns for up to 70 hours.
Also, to stay true to our environmental commitments we offer you the opportunity to buy our candles with our without a lid. Which gives you the option to reuse your lid from your old Oré mi candle.
When I was younger, my dad would bring my siblings and I pure dark honey from his trips home to Nigeria. I was mesmerised by it – its rich, dark colour, its sweetness – and I wanted to make a candle that would represent that wonder.
I combined the sweet, floral honey with earthy tobacco, to bring a deeper note to the profile, along with cinnamon, nutmeg, amber, patchouli and musk. I would like to think that one day my dad might keep bees on his farm in Nigeria; I need more honey!
Each time an Oré mi product is purchased 2.5% of the profits is given to a mental health charity focused on supporting black/brown people e.g. Black Minds Matter.
We use soya wax, fine fragrance oils, and cotton-core wicks in our candles. All of our candles are vegan friendly and cruelty free.
HOW TO USE CANDLE
Trim that wick! Before lighting, trim your candle wick so its no longer than 6mm.
Safety first: never leave a candle burning unattended, and don't burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
Stop burning your candle when only 7mm of wax remains.
Once the candle's gone, you can reuse the jar!
Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar each burn to prevent pooling. This is especially important for our Large Candles.
