Rachel Saunders x Mala: Back to Nature | Grass + Birch + Chestnut


experience the essence of nature with our limited edition earth month candle, created in collaboration with local ceramicist Rachel Saunders. inspired by our mother earth, “back to nature” features a carefully crafted blend of earthiness including soft grass, warm birch, and undertones of sandalwood.

housed in a handmade terracotta vessel and made to repurpose after the candle is finished, we’ve included our wildflower seeds to complement its next life! 

created in limited quantities, we won’t be restocking.

notes: jasmine, grass, ozone, cedar, grass, chestnut, birch, sandalwood, coconut

10 oz // burn time: 50-60 hours 

all candles are hand-poured in Canada and a tree is planted with every purchase.

due to the handmade nature of each ceramic vessel and candle pour, there may be slight variations in colour, texture and shape. there are no refunds, exchanges or returns on collaboration items.

candle care + burning tips


on first burn, let wax reach a full melt pool to avoid tunneling. (around 2 hours) with every consecutive burn, keep wick trimmed to about 1/8 - 3/16” inch. do this by pinching off the curled bits of the black, not the entire black portion! it is natural for the flame to dip in and out on different burns, so long as it does not fully go out. for best results, use a long lighter (hold it to the wick for about 5 seconds) to properly fuel the flame. remember, patience is key here! wood wicks take time to maintain as they are essentially mini fireplaces. :)

candle safety: 

to avoid fire hazard, never leave a burning candle unattended and always light on a heat proof surface. keep out of reach of flammable objects, pets, children, or anything that may catch on fire. do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time. stop use when only 1/2” of wax remains.
