Handmade, hand poured and freshly crafted in small batches with the best quality soy and phthalate free ingredients. Ilera Apothecary uses soy wax because it is renewable, biodegradable (unlike petroleum-based paraffin) and helps create economic growth. Soy wax also burns cleaner without getting nasty carbon soot on walls and ceilings and has no toxins thrown into the air we breathe.


Awaken : Awaken, the feeling of the African Saharan sun hitting your bare skin. Infused with citrus oils, the Awaken Signature Candle will revive your senses and bring you to a place of bliss.

How to use it

Morning & Night

For an even burn : Trim wick to ¼ inch each time you light your candle. Burn candle until melt pool reaches the side of the container, approximately 3 hours for the first burn. Light again only when wax has re-solidified.

Founder Chinonye's Tip

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep a burning candle away from drafts, ceiling fans and any air currents. Keep candles out of reach of children and pets. Place candles on a stable, heat resistant surface. Don't place a burning candle near clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable. Stop burning your candle when only ¼ inch remains.

Jazmin's Tip

"The scent of this candle is so bright, and fresh that it instantly boosts my mood. The entire store smells like this candle."
