URUSHI Botanical candle
URUSHI Botanical candle is made from the lacquer wool nuts in Wajima. Back to the 17th century, Japanese candles were often made from Urushi but the candles made from the oil of Japanese wax tree replaced them. Kew's Economic Botany Collection stocks traditional Japanese candles made from Urushi (John Quin's second batch of collections), and now we are the only remaining manufacturer of candles using Urushi.
This candle is seasonal product and made in limited quantities.
