Foraged Flora Candle 04 by Louesa Roebuck

Foraged Flora candles by Louesa Roebuck.


Each one is uniquely crafted by Louesa with leaves from our garden and other foraged flora. So fitting, this marriage of flora and wax, as the flowers are made for the bees then preserved in their precious wax. It comes full circle in this work of art. It’s a living exhibition of preservation and decomposition. And of a presence, something created in the moment of a season captured in beeswax. Living works of art for ritual and ceremonial use.


* Please note that the flora and wax will age over time. Final product may look slightly different from photo. 


    This beauty makes a statement all on it's own but if you choose to burn your candle, please follow instructions closley.

    Keep wax free of matches, wick trimmings, floral pieces and other flammable materials. Keep wick centered and trimmed to 1/8" to ensure even burning and prevent flame from becoming too large. Burn only on a stable heat resistant surfaces for not more than 4 hours at a time. Keep out of drafts. Disconcontinue use when 1/2" of wax remains. Do not move candle while burning or if wax is hot. 

    CAUTION! Natural clean burning wax! Failure to follow instructions could result in fire hazzard or injury. Keep out of reach of children and pets.


    NOTE: The wicks are burned prior to shipping to prepare for use.

    I consider all of California my home, and happily divide my time between the bay area and Los Angeles, currently living in Ojai. I've created floral installations for Vivienne Westwood, John Baldesarri, Todd Selby, Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, Rintaro, and Carolyn Murphy for Vogue and House Beautiful. My floral work has been featured in a number of national and international magazines and media, and my latest venture, Foraged Flora (ten speed press/random house), was released in October of 2016.
