The Library Collection is designed particularly for bibliophiles and anyone who appreciates the aromas of the written word. Candlemaker Carrie Crumbley and Special Collections Librarian Courtney Jacobs spent the greater part of 2017 collaborating on a collection of candle fragrances inspired by the nostalgic scent of well-loved books.
A wetland sedge plant, papyrus grew freely along the Nile Delta during ancient times. Its pith was harvested and woven into a writing surface that tended to roll onto itself once dry. During the time of classical antiquity, much of the world's knowledge was captured on papyrus scrolls and housed in temples and libraries across the mediterranean and Mesopotamia.
Papyrus is a scent that celebrates the infancy of the written word and sacred oils of scripture.

To get the most out of your candle allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar, this will prevent build up and tunneling. Be sure to trim the wick to 1/4" each time before re-lighting. We recommend that you do not burn for more than 3 hours at a time and that you discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remains in the bottom. Continue the recycling process by reusing the vessel or contact us and we will refill it for 30% off the original retail price.
