Glowing terracotta oil lamps creating a serene and warm ambiance, with delicate whorls of smoke ascending gently into the air.

Diwali is a major holiday in India and South Asia. The air all over is ripe with festivity. Families come together to clean, pray, and light candles welcoming Lord Rama and Sita back from exile in the forest, among other religious happenings for Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs. I love the sheer abundance of aromatics you encounter in India from food, flowers, and perfume—seemingly everywhere. Diwali candles called diyas, are usually oil or wax based in clay lamps.

Our candle recalls tree flowers and tropical woods from the forest where Rama and Sita were exiled, emboldened with a heart of opulent white flowers—tuberose and gardenia.

Hopefully it can be part of the festivity, act as lovely reminder of joy throughout the whole year, or just let people catch a whiff of the festivity on the Subcontinent.-D.S.
