Heartbeat Candle

Each candle starts with a natural gourd that was hand picked, dried, carved, painted and polished by a family of artisans in Peru. The tradition of carved gourds is an artistic expression that dates back over 3,000 years. 100% soy vegetable wax poured in Chicago with Lavander fragrance into each holder, creating the candle. Design is inspired in Skyline Chicago, designed by Lyn Hooley of REP CHI. Bring or Give a touch of Chicago! LEAD FREE PRODUCT
