Traditional Japanese candles known as Warousoku can help to focus mindful attention and appreciation when in meditation, reflection, prayer, practice and when honouring precious time.
Beautifully engineered from all natural materials. The wax is made from the fruit of the sumac tree and the flame comes from a special wick made from a unique recipe dating back to the 16th century. The Warousoku is a symbol of ancestral wisdom. Using plant-based materials, the wick is made by winding dried rushes around hollow cord of washi (Japanese paper made from natural fibers).
The hollow core of the wick allows oxygen to be drawn up from the bottom so that the flame consumes more melted wax, thus increasing the combustion power and creating a bright, powerful flame.
Canister contains 20 x 80mm candles, burn time is approximately 40 minutes.
These unique candles leave no trace of wax dripping nor emit smoke while burning.
On lighting a flame
"In prayer, in conversation, in self reflection, the candle subtly changes its expression in response, in feather like gentleness and ethereal warmth. The flame emanates an emotion not possible with electrical lights in our daily lives. “From Monologue to dialogue” is a principle theme at Daiyo, as we constantly contemplate the innate powers of the light of a candle flame, and how human relations are derived and created from it. We will continue making candles of the highest quality in order to pass down the closely-knit relationship between flame and humans that we have weaved since generations ago". -Daiyo
Daiyo was established in the Takashima county of Shiga Prefecture in 1914. The artisanship has been passed down across four generations, polished and refined as time passes. Shiga prefecture is home to Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan, and an abundance of natural resources. Consequently, Shiga has accumulated a wealth of knowledge on the coexistence of man and nature. Daiyo’s Japanese candles are 100% made from natural plant wax. Daiyo's principles of making candles from the blessings of nature have remained unchanged since their establishment more than a century ago.
