Candle - Sicilian Summer


Burn time

  • Size: 300ml / 45-50 hours of burn time

Sicilian Summer is inspired by ZWP's home-country Italy, it's a refreshing candle with a lemon scent and a hint of sage.

These candles are hand-poured in a small workshop using vegan, biodegradable soy wax, FSC-certified wooden wicks and scented using exclusively blends of essential oils. The wooden wicks allow for slow clean burning and a fantastic light crackling sound, they are made with FSC-certified wood, and these amazing crackling wicks are even patented (Pat.! 

Please note that each candle is handmade and hand-poured using natural ingredients, so slight variations in appearance, scent, and performance may occur.

  1. On the first burn, always burn for 3-4 hours to ensure an even melt pool, an even melt pool is essential for a perfect burning candle! On the other burns only light the candle for 2 hours maximum each time
  2. Always trim the wick to 5mm before lighting. To do this it should be sufficient to remove the burnt wood from the top of the wick
  3. Glass may become hot during use so be careful! Extinguish the candle when there's 5mm of wax remaining and do not relight it
  4. Remove any leftovers, wash the jar and reuse it or return it (clean)!
