    East of Africa

    East of Africa's Tusker candles are a collaboration between African and Australian artisans. The Tusker beer bottles are made in Kenya and have been exported and enjoyed in a local East African watering hole in Melbourne. These bottles have been reclaimed and cleaned, then hand cut and hand finished to create each glass jar. The wooden lids are hand carved and custom made, directly traded from Chako Zanzibar, a social enterprise based in Mwanakwarekwe, Zanzibar. Each soy candle is hand poured in Western Melbourne, Australia.

    Candle Use and Care

    • When burning your candle for the first time, ensure that the wax melts all the way to the edge of the glass container. This promotes an even burn for the entire life of the candle.
    • Always burn your candle within sight.
    • Don't burn your candle for longer than 4 hours at a time.
    • Trim your wick to 5mm before each burn. Trimmed wicks will encourage a cleaner, brighter burn.
    • Keep the wax pool free of trimmings and debris.
    • Burn the candle away from draughts where possible.
    • Maximise your scent throw by keeping doors and windows closed while burning.
    • Extinguish your candle with a snuffer or by dipping the wick into the melted wax.
    • Stop burning your candle once the wax falls below the half-inch mark (1.27cm). Burning with only a small amount of wax remaining can cause the base of the glass container to overheat.
    • Always store in a cool, dry place out of directly sunlight

    Candle Safety

    • Do not attempt to extinguish a candle with water.
    • Ensure your candle is extinguished, the soy wax is solid and the glass is cold before handling. You should never move a burning candle.
    • The candle's glass container will become hot. Burn your candle on a flat and heat-resistant surface.
    • Keep away from children, pets and flammable materials.
    • Do not use wooden lid to extinguish candle.
