These massage oil candles are made of naturally derived soy wax and almond oil. We asked Mr. Yabuya, who produces Kutani Yaki pottery, to create an original product for NORTA.
The candle is a very cute vessel with a gorgeous pattern typical of Kutani ware and a beckoning cat to bring in good luck.
This is a very elaborate work, painted entirely by hand using the Mori technique, one of the traditional techniques of Kutaniyaki, which is a technique of decorating with heaping paints by Itchin (tube painting). The artist's skill as well as patience are required to complete each piece.
You can feel the fragrance as you watch the fire lit as a candle, and after spending a healing time, you can massage with the melted oil. It is the perfect item for complete relaxation. Since it is something you put on your body, we asked Matsukawa Chemical, a cosmetics manufacturing specialist, to cooperate with us in the development and production of this product. (A small amount spreads very well, so please start with a small amount and adjust the amount accordingly)
After the candle is finished, it can be used as an objet d'art, a container for small objects, or a flower pot. You can also use the refills (sold separately) to make your own candles again. We hope you will enjoy using it with various ideas.
This product comes in a wooden box, making it a perfect gift.
There are three scents: Sakura, Yuzu, and unscented, which you can add your favorite essential oil or other fragrance.

* Please note that all the candles are handmade, so there may be a slight difference in the beckoning cat's expression or a few millimeters in size.
Please do not leave the candle in high temperatures such as in the car or in the sunlight during the summer, as it will melt at a low temperature of about 60 degrees.
*Use with caution to avoid any skin problems. If the product does not agree with your skin, discontinue use.
Be careful not to burn yourself during or immediately after use, as part of the container is thickened. Do not leave the vicinity of the fire extinguisher while it is burning. Be sure to extinguish before going to bed.
