I have a soft spot for the Hollow Tree collection of candles. Each candle has a unique and distinct scent that sweeps you away on an adventure. Walking through a spectacular forest is an ethereal experience. Living quite aways from the Pacific Northwest, I find solace in lighting my favourite Trails End candle while getting cozy with a book. It's truly healing finding time for yourself: drinking a warm cup of tea and finding the right scent for you adds to the magical atmosphere.
“FORESTS ARE LIBRARIES, SHARE THEIR STORIES”.
The wicks are cotton and the wax is coconut and burns for 60 hours. The boxes have a liner, which is a topographical map from 1928 and is a map of an area called London Mtn, which is now known as Whistler Mtn.
The jars are ceramic and do not have a glaze, therefore they are porous - and can be repurposed with plants, or pencils, or one can break the jar down into small pieces and it can be placed in your garden or plants as it helps aerate the soil.
Naturally northern carries three series of Hollow Tree, the "Backpacker" is just one of them.
The Backpacker series evokes the intricate scents of British Columbia’s backcountry. British Columbia is legendary for her beauty, elements of nature wrapped within her glacial waters and majestic rainforest, the thread that connects us all from sea to sky.
Enchanted by the painted strokes of charcoal upon the Black Tusk, to the scenic alpine of Brandywine Meadows, forged by the textured granite of the iconic Shannon Falls descending upon the sweet poetry of notes within Trails End, mesmerized by the west coast wilderness vistas and endless adventures of Canoe. Discovery the beauty of British Columbia’s backcountry nestled within a Hollow Tree candle.
Hollow Tree’s candles were created not only in the hope of expressing the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, but also in preservation of it and the rest of the world. And if you have a chance to visit one of the majestic, haunting and beautiful places that inspired Hollow Tree, I highly recommend not leaving BC without visiting Shannon Falls Provincial Park in Squamish. Hike to the falls, breathe in the woody scents and just stand still for a moment.
