The most beautifully scented candle that will make you feel like you are meditating in the middle of the Australian bush. If you close your eyes you can almost hear the birds chirping simply by lighting this candle. One of our faves here at Simply Beautiful Gifts headquarters.
THE FRAGRANCE // Fresh flora and fauna dance on notes of clove, fir needle, leafy greens and just a hint of lemongrass.
THE COLLECTION // The Australian Botanicals Collection features hand painted illustrations of native flora and fauna by Holly Sanders. This collection is not only a celebration of culture and Country, but also represents the merging of traditional and contemporary Indigenous art.
THE ARTIST // Holly Sanders is a proud Aboriginal Bundjalung woman from North Coast New South Wales. Through her art, she aims to share her stories, culture and Country in a contemporary way. The patterns of her Saltwater Country motivate her, as do stories from the past.
The colours and patterns utilised in her art are a reflection of her connection to Country and used to develop a modern interpretation of her Aboriginal culture. Painting is important for her identity, wellbeing and expresses the way she understands and respects her culture, ancestors and Country.
