Swazi Candles was established in 1981. They make their candles using a technique known as ‘mollifiere’ which was originally used in Ancient Rome.
Wax sheets are rolled into patterns, then stretched and rolled again until the desired patterns are produced. The sheets of wax are then cut and applied over a core of white wax which is then moulded into the desired shape.
The outside casing barely melts when the candle is lit, resulting in a glow from inside the candle as it burns down. Each candle is handmade and environmentally friendly as up to 85% of the raw materials are recycled.
