Our Coco Butter & Amber Candle is rich and sweet, with dark chocolate like aromas. It also has notes of warm Moroccan amber enriched by spicy cinnamon.
Our small candles are hand-poured into our 180ml amber jars with our signature Oré mi label and a black gloss lid.
This candle burns for up to 40 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.
My mother was essentially a single parent for many of my younger years in London, while my dad was waiting to join us from Nigeria, so any one-on-one time I had with her was precious.
I have such vivid memories of her taking time out of her crazy schedule to lather me in cocoa butter, to make sure my skin was glowing. That time together was sacred, and it bonded us. I created this scent to remind me of those times with her, pairing the cocoa butter with warm, resinous amber to give it an earthy, velvety scent.
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. Ideally burn candle for at least 1 hour but no more 2 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.
