The scent of the Himalayas
Mana is made from a unique blend of citrus essential oils and Himalayan beeswax; encased in an ornate, hand beaten brass Newari rice cup from the ancient city of Bhaktapur.
Mana was hand poured by Sita the ‘Candle Lady of Kathmandu’, a local artisan who runs a candle making business in Kathmandu. 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.
