Cotton is one of the world’s oldest shrubs native to tropical and subtropical regions. Africa’s fabric—also known as Wax Hollandais or Dutch Wax—is a resin-printed cotton fabric first manufactured in the Netherlands for Indonesians in the mid-19th century. This candle has an uplifting, reviving, and energizing scent, perfect for integrating the soul with the body on stressful days. Wax is hand-poured into a white vessel and is topped off with a dust cover.
