Lanji Candles Collaboration

£20.00

Each box contains a pack of 8 Lanji Candles tea lights (two scents that can be burnt at the same time) with an affirmation card, and two Kirsty Riddell hand drawn glass tea light holders.

I came across Lanji Candles through the Solo Craft Fair’s virtual online market on Instagram, during the Covid-19 pandemic. Suwi and I realised our shared interest in discussing mental health and our priority to promote well-being within our practice. We wanted to combine our separate disciplines to create something that would calm the senses and relieve stress through the use of scent, colour and light.

For the drawing of the glass tea light holders I focused on the ideas behind the Zentangle Method, where the drawing is free from conscious intention and reaches its own conclusion within the process itself. I chose to use the Pantone colour of 2020; Classic Blue, for the balance of positivity and calm it represents. For the candle scent, Suwi wanted people to feel warm and safe. With autumn rapidly coming she also wanted scents to go with the season. English pear and vanilla; a warm and inviting fragrance which can help to reduce stress and anxiety. Black fig and amber; a punchy wooden fragrance which can help improve relaxation.

10% of every box sold goes towards the charity No Panic, helping people manage and recover from Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and other related anxiety disorders. https://nopanic.org.uk

Description

Price includes free postage and delivery (second class, recorded delivery).

Due to the handmade nature of the holders no one will be the same. They are an individual piece of art on their own. There is the choice of two square tea lights (5x5cm) or two cylinder tea lights (height 6.2cm height, diameter 4cm) per box. All packaging materials are recyclable.

Mental Health and well-being is very important to Lanji Candles from their affirmations with every order to what fragrances are picked. Whenever choosing fragrances Suwi always thinks about how she wants people to feel when burning the candle.

I have taken part in many SoLo Craft Fair markets, which is a South London based organisation run by Catherine and Rebecca, providing a platform for small businesses to develop. When the pandemic hit, they had to cancel so many events that they came up with the idea of doing virtual markets through Instagram.
