Sometsuke means "to dye" in Japanese. It is said that the name "Sometsuke" came about because of its similarity to the deep blue color of indigo dying in Japan. Sometsuke is painted with underglaze cobalt oxide, called "Gosu" in Japan, on a white porcelain base, and a transparent glaze is applied on top to produce a vivid blue color. When fired, the cobalt is baked into the glassy substance of the glaze so that it is no longer toxic. This Sometsuke porcelain has the beauty of the translucent white porcelain base itself, combined with the vivid cobalt blue coloring. For this teacup candle, we have infused coconut soy wax with the top notes of soothing spearmint and eucalyptus. Sea salt, powder, and juniper elevate the fragrance to pure relaxation as the base notes of the candle. Once you light your candle, the scent will fill your space and uplifts your mood. The top of the candle is decorated with dried flowers and crystals for luck and well-being.

Gift box is included with the candle, ready to be given as gifts. Whether you're planning a bridal shower, tea party, baby shower, wedding or a classic event, this vintage teacup candle is the perfect gift. 

The tea set can be used for sipping your favorite hot drink after your candle is finished. Since we are using 100% organic vegetable base coconut and soy wax blend with the premium oils. We are not using any coloring agent for our candles in order to keep the teacups reusable and not to damage the vintage item. You get the best of both worlds, this teacup has been repurposed into a candle that can be enjoyed before being turned back into a teacup.

Usage Tips

Always trim the wick before lighting and keep debris out of the wax pool. Do not burn for more than 2-3 hours at a single period of time. Place the candle away from flammable objects and place the candle in a candle dish or other appropriate vessel that is heat resistant. For the most enjoyment let the wax harden and cool before relighting the candle.
