Oak Tree

The Oak Tree is an oak and hazelnut scented candle inspired by the book Orlando by Virginia Woolf. 

Light your candle and escape to another world

This Oak Tree soy scented candle will transport you to Orlando’s world as you light it. Travelling through three centuries and two genders, the grounding nature of the Oak Tree and its scent acts as an anchor for Orlando’s heart and soul as you follow their story through time and personal exploration. 

“he felt the need of something which he could attach his floating heart to…To the oak tree he tied it”- Orlando, Virginia Woolf 

The Oak Tree is a symbol throughout the story, with Orlando’s own poem The Oak Tree an important artifact in the biography of the central character. This woody scent with oak, cedar and patchouli will activate your senses and transport you into an English wood from the comfort of your own home. 

Escapism through scent

By activating your sense of smell and engaging the area of the brain relating to memory and emotion, each Wild Books Oak Tree candle will take you to Orlando’s world inspired by a Virginia Woolf’s novel. 

Top Notes: oak leaves and fresh lemon

Middle: hazelnut, jasmine and cypress

FAQ

Candle Care

How can I look after my candles?

There are a few key ways to get the best out of your Wild Books candles. 

1. The first burn

On the first burn, allow the wax melt pool to reach the edge of the glass jar. This will be around 2-3 hours.

This will prevent tunnelling - where your wax only burns around the wick in a smaller core, therefore not using all of the wax.

2. Trick your wick

Between each burn, make sure you trim your wick down to approx 3-5mm. You can do this with the Wild Books Wick Trimmer.

This will reduce any sootiness and give a clean burn. 

3. Extinguish your flame

After approx 2-3 hours, extinguish your flame with a candle snuffer. This will reduce smoke caused by blowing the candle and keep the scent of the candle in the room for longer.

You can do this with the Wild Books Candle Snuffer.

How do I wash out my candle jars?

When all the wax is melted and at its bottom 5cm, pour out into the bin. Wipe out excess with kitchen roll. With hot soapy water, clean off any residue and remove the wick holder. Leave to dry, then put them up safely and pop them in the post.
