Handmade designed candle containers inspired by cult Neolithic items dating 8000 years ago, found all over Bulgarian lands fragmented or whole in almost every Neolithic and Chalcolithic object. The containers as known as cult tables were part of the life, customs, and rituals of our ancient ancestors. Recreating them today in this contemporary image, we aim to expose the energy and individuality of an age wrapped in deep mysticism.
Sculptors and a specialist restorer with many years of experience and research on the prehistoric cult tables, took part in the creating of the ceramic part of the candle, so that we can give them the most authentic appearance.
Each container is made of specially selected clay, similar to the original ones found. It is decorated and left to dry in a cool place for 1-2 weeks, after which it is baked at about 850-900 degrees in a kiln. It has undergone another heat treatment in a wood fire to acquire this mystical look that makes each one of the editions unique!
The technology of making the candle container is consistent with the fact that it is not heated to the sides of the feet by the burning candle to create additional security. The shape of the object is further rounded, resembling the rounded, curved feminine shapes of the statuettes and the archetype of the Mother goddess (a cult symbol for almost 40 millennia), which creates a feeling of comfort, strength and everyone’s desire to touch and take it in their hands.
The filling of the candle is manually poured, consisting of a pre-prepared mix of vegetable waxes, which ensures a smoother and more even burning. The wicks, depending on the client’s wishes, can be solved in wooden sticks with a burning fireplace feeling, which contributes to a more intense burning of the candle and a more intense aroma emission, or with a traditional cotton wick that burns slow and brings a more balanced flavor release.
Each of the candle fragrances has been synthesized after numerous tests and selections of traditional local essential oils mixed with exotic ones, as well as complemented with hints of natural fragrance oils that give an overall perfection of the product.
The main plants that inspired the development of aromatic compositions are:
Rose Damascena, Lavender, Immortelle, Clary Sage, Pine. The aroma combinations are prepared in a unique way so that each aroma fits a certain part of the day and all together close one whole aroma cycle of day and night (yin and yang):

Average Burning Time:
Depends on the kind of the wick – between 15-30 hours.
25-30 hrs. – cotton wick
20-25 hrs. – wooden wick
To minimize wax left on the sides of the candle container, burn 3 hours at a time!
We recommend storing the candle in a cooler place in indirect sunlight.
Instructions for cleaning and reusing the candle containers:
After the complete burning of the wick, you can remove what is left of the wax and the base of the wick by using a spoon and scraping the walls of the container with it. For even more precise cleaning, you can soak the container in hot water to melt any remaining wax. In the meantime, you can choose from our online shop a new refill to add it to the already empty candle container or consult with our specialist by contacting us through the messenger or by email and requesting an individual scent.
Do not use in case of sensitivity or allergy to any of the ingredients! Do not leave unattended or lit until you are in the room! Do not swallow the wax! Keep away from the skin! If skin irritation or redness occurs, seek medical advice by providing the product label if it is suspected! Keep out of touch with children! Keep away from the eyes! Do not throw away the candle container – it is reusable (see reusing instructions)!
