A STORY OF AROHA AND MAGIC

MEET ELLIE

When thinking of naming this wee biz, I was hanging out with the bff and she suggested thinking of a name that is close to home, in Te Reo. I'm personally on my own journey to understanding and learning  my whakapapa, and learning more of  Te Ao Maori.

 

Ko Rereahu, Nga Puhi te iwi.

 

So I looked back, and remembered a time when I was at my nana's tangi. I didn't know what they were saying, or signing, but i felt it, and so I started singing Twinkle, twinkle, little star in English. The whanau stopped, smiled and laughed and started singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star in both English and Te Reo.

 

Ka kite i te atua, pēnā tonu me te whetū e kohiko mai ana i te rangi 

She saw the atua and it was just like a star twinkling in the sky

Kohiko: to flash, twinkle.

CANDLE CARE

Ruth%20and%20Che%20sml%20side_edited.jpg

There are some great ways to look after your beautiful new Kohiko Candles:

1) Always read the safety instructions that are located underneath/base of the candle.

2) For the first burn please, burn candle until wax melts completely to the sides - otherwise you will have a small burning time, with a whole heap wax not being used.

3) We recommend not burning for longer than 4 hours - but hey you will do what you will do.

4) NEVER leave a burning candle unattended.

5) Sometimes petals and flowers may move closer to the wick as the wax melts - this means that they may catch alight. Please monitor the candle at all times, and if you have a skewer at home you can use that to maneuver the petal away from the wick.
