The Swirl Pillar candle is Esh's very first candle design, and we love it to this day!
The Swirl Pillar was designed to be asymmetrical and to play around with shadows and perspective. We think they look best in a pair or more to exaggerate the irregular curves.
As with all Esh Candles, these have been made with 100% soy wax, a recycled cotton wick, and scented with our own designed fragrance blends using essential oils and all-natural ingredients.
The following colour and scent combinations apply:
Green - Clary Sage & Lemon essential oil
Orange - Chamomile & Mandarin essential oil
Blue - Lavender essential oil
Pink - Eden Rose essential oil
The first time you light your swirl pillar is the most important, as you want to establish a bowl shaped ‘burn pool’ (the liquid pool of wax of a candle while burning). This will ensure a longer and more even burn.
Trim your wick very short, around 5mm, and place candle on a heat proof dish with raised edges to collect any molten wax.
If a channel forms (this looks like a small split in the side, with molten wax pouring down the side of the candle onto the surface your candle is on) quickly plug up the channel with a chunk of hardened wax to stop the dripping completely. This will help the burn pool to grow and reach its optimum size.
Once a burn pool has been established (typically within 30 minutes of lighting) we recommend burning for a minimum of 1 hour and a maximum of 2 hours at a time. This will help keep its shape for longer.
This candle is vegan.
