Orchid & Lavender Soy Candle Collection
The Gift: This beautiful selection includes a 5.75oz Haleakala Soy Candle in Sea Salt Orchid, an 8.5oz Hawaiian Lavender Orchid Body Creme, and a 5oz Lavender Shea Soap. All items handcrafted on Maui, with Aloha and presented in a traditional Hawaiian Lauhala gift basket, tied with a bow.
The Lauhala Gift Basket: In Old Hawaii, the leaves or "lau" were handwoven to create functional items such as hats, canoe sails, mats and baskets. Today, Hawaiians still enjoy using lauhala baskets for gift giving.
The Fragrance: the fresh, floral and herbaceous smell of Lavender is balanced with the sweet, exotic, jasmine-like fragrance of Orchid in this collection.
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.
