Launched in 2004 and crafted in Decatur, Georgia, Himalayan Handmade Candles started as a way for founder Julia Leaphart to reconnect with her childhood spent in the foothills of the Himalayas. Using artisan techniques, natural soy wax, and evocative fragrances, each hand-poured candle is housed in an artfully designed wooden vessel that's both decorative and reusable.

For the best burn experience, keep the following in mind:
The first time you light your candle, allow it to burn until the wax pool melts all the way to the edge; for a larger candle, this may take several hours. Wax has "memory," so if it is extinguished with a partial pool, that will prevent a full, even pool from forming in the future. Trim your wick each time you light the candle, removing any "bloom" from the previous burn. We recommend lighting a wick that is 1/4-1/2" in length. Ensure that your candle is placed on a heat-safe surface. Do not allow wick trimmings, dust, or other materials to accumulate in the wax pool. To ensure safety and longevity, be sure to check the bottom of your candle for additional instructions, including details on when to discontinue use.
