JAPANESE TRADITIONAL CANDLES: WA-ROUSOKU
Japanese candles "wa-rousoku" are completely handmade with natural materials such as "HAZE" -laquer tree seed wax. But these candles are also made with Palm wax and also rice bran wax which are very commonly used in Japan.
Washi paper is used for the core of each candle which means they create less soot and drip compared to regular paraffin candles. Also it's said that these Japanese candles burn longer, the candles of size #5 burn for about 100 minutes per candle.
