Paipái means "papaya" in Lingala. "

While papaya were introduced to South Africa in the mid-17th century, the delicious treat has had a long and rich history far beyond our imagination. From being used as a currency by traders and merchants to its leaves being used for wedding decorations, this mouth-watering stone fruit has marked its place as one of the most important and most beloved food items in the world. This candle is a love letter to papaya and is sure to create a sweet summer breeze, evocative of the South African coast, from which it is now native.

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.
