Plant-based candles made from 100% rice bran wax.
Rice bran wax is harder and substantially longer lasting than other waxes used in candles. For a candle of this size, the continuous burning time is a surprising 48 hours.
These rice bran block candles are ideal for use at the dinner table due to their long burning time, also extremely low odour, low soot, and low wax dripping.
Handcrafted by traditional Japanese candle craftsmen by Daiyo established in 1914 in Shiga, Japan.
What is Japanese Candle
Japanese candles ("Wa Rousoku" in Japanese) are 100% plant-based. They are made from the fruit of the Japanese sumac tree (Rhus succedanea) or rice bran wax, and Washi paper for the core.
Japanese candles are mentioned in the "Taihei-ki" around 1375. It is thought that they began to be made around that time.
Handcrafted by Traditional Japanese Candle Maker, Daiyo
The Daiyo brand was established in 1914 in Shiga Prefecture Japan and has now been passed through four generations over a hundred years.
They produce high quality Japanese candles for a wide variety of purposes, ranging from religious candles used in Buddhist altars and temples, for Cha-no-yu rituals (a Japanese traditional ritual for serving and drinking tea), to Japanese candles as congratulatory gifts and endowments, or even for everyday use.
