When I made my mind up that I was going to attempt to create a rhubarb scented candle I knew that I’d need to put my own twist on it. I didn’t want it to be an over the top sweet scent, or anything single noted and lifeless.

Ask anyone from the prairies about their connection to rhubarb and they have a favourite memory - being out in the garden with grandma, having her pick a stalk that she’d dip in a bit of sugar, using the same little cup each time. The harvest desserts - pies and cakes. Going down the basement, lifting that big heavy lid of the chest freezer and finding it filled with bags full for the winter.

With a connection that strong and I knew that I’d have to craft something special. One of my most challenging scents to date, my take on Rhubarb features notes of fresh cut rhubarb, wild prairie rose (because for me the two were always present in our garden on the farm), santal, grapefruit and vetiver. Tart and fresh, with a slight musk and dryness. 

We have partnered with a fair trade workshop in Bammnoli Village, located in the Southwestern part of Delhi, India to create the exclusive bowls found in our Wild Garden range. It’s been a labour of love creating this collection over the past two years.

Designed for Farmer’s Son Co., each piece has been hand thrown by a skilled artisan using organic materials and has been produced in an earth friendly and responsible manner. This terracotta bowl can be repurposed upon completion and is food safe. Hand wash only. Do not use in the oven or microwave.

Crafted with 100% soy wax, fine perfume fragrance and cotton core wicks. Poured in our exclusive 8oz terracotta bowls. Housed in a kraft box with linen texture paper labels.

This candle will give you 45 to 50 hours of burn-time enjoyment.

Always trim wicks to 1/4 inch before lighting (we suggest using a Farmer's Son Co. wick trimmer). The first time you light your candle, let it burn for 3-4 hours to allow the melted wax to reach the edge of the container to prevent your candle from tunneling.

Follow the two foot rule - don't place your burning candle near clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable. Place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax. Keep lit candles away from drafts, ceiling fans and any air currents. Never leave a burning a candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep or if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container. A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 1/4 inch of wax remains in the container.
