Inspiration for the Zen candle was found in the refined ritual of tea time. From all around the world, the practice of tea ceremony evokes tranquility and gracefully beckons the simple pleasure of relaxation. Most ceremonies summon a rare grace and elegance in both decor and function.
The very nature of a tea ceremony is to bring harmony, a connection to nature, calm the mind and heighten the senses of the present.
Our Zen candle is the perfect alliance between ritual and decor with a touch of indulgence. It will stir the emotions and soothe the mind taking you to a place where the world slows down to a gentler and peaceful pace.
