The scent of the Himalayas
The Mana Candle is made from a unique blend of essential oils and Himalayan beeswax; encased in an ornate, hand beaten brass candle holder, made from a Newari rice cup in the ancient city of Bhaktapur.
The Mana Candle was hand poured by Sita the ‘Candle Lady of Kathmandu’, a local woman who runs a candle making business. Like many women in Nepal, Sita didn’t go to school, so she turned to craft to help support her family. With a small donation from a local charity and borrowed equipment, she set up her business and now she creates candles for people all over her neighbourhood, as well as hosting her own candle making classes for women in her community.
