Queen Idia Candle 90g
The Queen Idia candle is made from clean burning, sustainable coconut wax. It has base notes of Geranium and Frankincense, top notes of Lavender and hibiscus invoking the fragrance of soft African Moss.
With this candle, LIHA was inspired by the famous Yoruba Queen Idia, a symbol of female empowerment and proof of ancient matriarchal societies. The myth tells of two medicine-filled incisions on her forehead that were the source of her metaphysical power.
