Large Pillar Candle

Large Pillar  Swazi Candle in a beautiful animal print is handmade using 2 types of wax. Handmade by artisans in the Malkerns Valley Region of the Kingdom of Swaziland. Using the ancient technique of  “Miliflore” Candles are made using high grade paraffin wax which makes them lasts longer, and can be used well after the wax is all melted. Candles will burn internally causing the design to illuminate while candle is lit. These produces a ‘GLOW’ which is a trademark of Swazi Candles. You can also use the shell as a tea light holder once the wax is all melted. These Fair trade Vegan candles are unscented. They are ethically made and sourced.

Large Pillar Candle is approx 15cm x 9cm, burn time approx 90 hours

Please read the directions before use.
– Keep candle wick trimmed to 1/4 inch.
– Remove all packaging before use, and place candle on a heat resistant coaster capable of containing any wax spillage. Although the candle is generally self-contained a heat-resistant coaster or similar is advised.
– Burn candle away from drafts and for no more than a couple of hours at a time (this prevents the hard outer wax from melting)
– Extinguish candle with snuffer or back of metal spoon taking care not to damage wick.

– Pour off molten wax if necessary to enhance flame.

– To re-use candle shell after burning off the interior wax, place tea light inside.


Swazi Candles was started in an old cowshed of a former dairy in 1982 by 2 South African art graduates. The little workshop soon gained a reputation for producing unique candles and started attracting visitors.
The vibrancy of the workshop, the uniqueness of the product, and the skill of the artisans resulted in Swazi Candles becoming one of Swaziland’s premier tourist attractions.
They are also one of the founding members of SWIFT (Swaziland Fair Trade Association).


The wax is colored by mixing pigments with hot wax which is then poured into flat sheets.
Sheets are marked and cut and carefully layered according to the design.
The resulting slabs are compressed, extruded, and re-extruded, and then sliced into thin veneers.
These veneers are then taken by the candle makers and skillfully stretched over a core of pure white wax and hand made into the desired shapes.
