Our Grapefruit & Sugarcane candle smells of a fresh citrusy grapefruit pulp with a soft hint of sugar cane to add a hint of sweetness.
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.
If you’ve never tasted raw sugar cane in its purest form, you must find a way to. It is heavenly – I can’t liken it to anything else – and it instantly transports me back to Nigeria. In our Grapefruit & Sugar Cane candle, its sweetness is paired with a fresh, citrusy grapefruit – the ideal combination of bitter and sweet, which really comes to life as it burns.
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.
