Komeno megumi rice bran candles

This Komeno megumi candle box set contains 8 unscented rice bran wax candles. Rice bran wax is made from the bran of the rice, which comes off when the rice is polished. In Japan, rice bran wax has been used to shine wooden floors and to clean the surfaces of furniture. When the rice bran candle is lit, the wax does not drip as much as other candles, and the flame produces a warm orange color.

Takazawa Rousoku in Ishikawa Prefecture is one of the oldest traditional Japanese candle (Warousoku) makers in Japan. Their techniques of candle making have not changed since 16th century and now they are made by only a handful of Japanese craftsmen. Traditionally used in Buddhist ceremonies and zen meditations, their candles are still popular today. The unscented plant-based candle has a hollow washi paper core, which means it burns with greater intensity and gives brighter flame than modern paraffin candle.
