Flora Body Candle
Flora the Italian goddess of flowers and spring.
All of our candles are lovingly hand poured in small batches, each is unique and some minor imperfections may occur due to the natural wax (frosting etc)
We recommend using our candles as ornamental pieces however if you decide to take a lighter to your candle we advise burning in a heatproof dish
Please burn responsibly and follow safety guidelines.
This beautiful, hand poured, torso are made from vegetable wax!
When purchasing please remember wax doesn’t always appear perfect. Small imperfections may occur or there may be a lightly frosted look that usually goes unnoticed however, we will try and get them exactly the same every time.
These candles are often used for home décor but if you wish to burn the candles, please note that soy wax normally melts quickly so it is advisable to place the candle on a small non-flammable plate. Don’t worry if you do get it on a surface as warm soapy water will usually have it off in no time.
If you have a colour request or different fragrance please pop me an message and I can see what I can do!
Please note - Candles may take up to 2 weeks to dispatch as these are all made to order!
Approx burn time 45 mins.

CANDLE SAFETY INFORMATION
How to Burn a Candle Safely
- We want to make sure that all of our customers are happy and that involves keeping them safe too. Before using a candle, please read the candle safety information below.
- Never leave a burning candle unattended.
- Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire.
- Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
- Trim the wick to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
- Always use a candleholder specifically designed for candle use. It should be heat resistant, sturdy, and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
- Burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
- Place the candleholder on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This will also help prevent possible heat damage to counters and table surfaces and prevent glass containers from cracking or breaking.
- Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
- Avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.
- Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on burn time and proper use.
- While burning
- Never touch or move a burning candle. Never move a votive or container candle when the wax is liquefied.
- Don’t burn a candle all the way down. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 2 inches of wax remains (1/2 inch if in a container).
- Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another. This is to make sure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts that will cause the candles to burn improperly.
- Extinguish a candle if the flame becomes too high or flickers repeatedly. Let the candle cool, trim the wick, and check for unwanted drafts before re-lighting.
- Always keep the candle within your sight. If you are going to leave the room, be sure to first blow out all candles.
- Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.
- Never use a candle as a night light.
- Be very careful if using candles during a power outage. Flashlights and other battery-powered lights are safer sources of light during a power failure. Never use a candle during a power outage to look for things in a closet, or when fueling equipment – such as a lantern or kerosene heater.
- Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
- Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets. Do not place lighted candles where they can be knocked over by children, pets or anyone else.
- When extinguishing
- Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle. It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax from splattering.
- Never use water to extinguish a candle. Water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might break a glass container.
- Make sure the candle is completely out and the wick ember is no longer glowing before leaving the room.
- Don’t touch or move the candle until it has completely cooled.
- Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
