Aboriginal Six Seasons Candles
The Noongar seasons have always been a part of Aboriginal life and like time itself, the six Noongar seasons represent a predictable timetable of foreseeable events. Acknowledgement that nothing is unconnected and each change is being influenced by the last.
These candles are individually hand-poured in the south west of Western Australia and feature a unique fragrance blend invoking each season.
