About tvær stjörnur

This handmade candle diffuses a delicate and warm fragrance. It is composed of vegetable- and beeswax to burn cleanly in your home and spread a lovely scent. The Icelandic poem, printed on the glass jar, is by Megas.

tvær stjörnur
Tíminn flýgur áfram
og hann teymir mig á eftir sér
og ekki fæ ég miklu ráðið
um það hvert hann fer
en ég vona bara hann hugsi
soldið hlýlega til mín
og leiði mig á endanum
aftur til þín. - Megas

two stars
Each moment passes swiftly
and along its course I’m led
and I don’t have a chance to choose
the paths that lie ahead
but I just have to hope it sends some
pleasant thoughts my way
and leads me to you finally
forever to stay. – Megas

(Translation by Halla Helgadóttir)

How to use

To ensure a clean and even burning of your candle, practise the following: if possible, let the top layer become liquid wax after use, trim the wick before relighting (to minimise smoke), and keep the candle out of draught. Avoid placing the candle directly on a glass or marble surface. This candle has a burning time of 60 hours.
Never leave the candle unattended. Keep out of reach of children. Do not move the candle when the wax is liquid.


Vegetable and beeswax. Fragrance of cinnamon, apple, cardamom, ginger and mandarin.

Sóley candles are specially made in France.
