Characteristics of warosoku
Warosoku is made of plant-based wax and environment-friendly.
Unlike candles made of oil, warosoku does not produce much soot and does not stain a room or furniture.
It is easy to wipe of soot or drip of warosoku, for it is plant-based.
Flame of warosoku is wind resistant and is not put off by a bit of wind.
Flame flickers even without wind; it is mysterious yet calming.
◎Flame of warosoku
Flame of warosoku is big and flickers. The rhythm of flickering flame of a candle is supposedly the healing rhythm called “1/f fluctuation”, like the sound of waves or the way trees sway. Relax in “1/f fluctuation” and have a calming time…
Use and purpose of warosoku
In Japan, warosoku are used in temples in general. Since warosoku is made of plant-based wax, more and more people, such as those who care for the environment and young generations, are using it as a healing light or as an interior decoration. It is getting attention from customers overseas who have certain candle culture, because of the easy way to clean up after lighting a candle, or of the refined Japanese design. Why not create a mystical place by lighting up warosoku, or just decorating it in your room without lighting up?
*Please trim a candle wick
The wick of warosoku is made from a rush core wrapped with washi (Japanese paper) traditionally. 20-30 minutes after lighting up a candle, the warosoku candle wick would stick out; please cut the center of the candle wick with scissors. Do the same when blowing out warosoku, and the ash does not fall off. It will be easier to re-light a candle as well.
