Ntokíya means "cotton" in Lingala.
Cotton is one of the world's oldest shrubs native to tropical and subtropical regions. Africa's fabric—also known as Wax Hollandais or Dutch Wax—is a resin-printed cotton fabric first manufactured in the Netherlands for Indonesians in the mid-19th century. This candle has an uplifting, reviving, and energizing scent, perfect for integrating the soul with the body on stressful days.

Candle Care Tips:
- Let all of the wax melt evenly across to reach the edge of the jar—allow the candle to burn for 3-4 hours. This helps to insure that the candle does not “tunnel” by leaving access, unused wax on the sides of the glass. Your candle will last much longer this way.
- Never burn candles on or near anything that might catch fire or leave a burning candle unattended.
- Wood wicks should maintain a wick length of 1/4 of an inch above the wax to aid the candle in catching and maintaining a proper flame. You can maintain the wick by gently breaking off burnt edges with a wick trimmer or a pair of sharp scissors.
- A candle with a flame that is too high will burn too hot and may become dangerous if left unattended.
- Never extinguish a candle with water.
- Move your candle from windows, doors, air conditioners, and fans to prevent the candle from smoking (and to prevent from smoke inhalation)
- Staying away from short burn times will prevent your candle from tunnelling
- Candles should not be burned for more than 4 hours at any given time.
