The Story: Though it is a mystery as to how Lavender migrated to Hawaii, it has been a beloved plant to many on the islands. The history of Lavender on Hawaii goes as far back as 1849 with a recorded mention lavender water as an item in a shipment to Hawaii. Queen Liliuokalani, Hawaii’s last monarch, was also a fan—as she noted growing lavender in her garden. Lavender seems to thrive in certain Hawaiian microclimates—particularly the upcountry slopes of Haleakala on Maui.
The Details: The Haleakala Sea Salt & Orchid Soy Candle is hand poured in Maui, by a local artisan. This high quality candle not only smells delightful, but is presented in a glass jar and topped with a bamboo lid engraved with the island of Maui.
