Leader of the Lamiacea family, this tree, that produces odorant leaves, comes from minor Asia. Widespread in the Mediterranean region, it grows in sunny and fertile places. Its leaves remain green all year long, which in history has confered it the symbol of immortality. Used in the past to crown the heads of kings, poets and winners, the Bay Laurel also used to be Apollo’s symbol in Antiquity.
Directions for use:
- Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 2 hours at a time.
- Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies, and allow it to solidify before re-lighting.
- Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch at all times, to avoid any black smoke. Gently re-position the wick while the wax is still molten.
- Always protect the surface on which the candle rests.
- Once only ¼ inch of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
