A conifer of the Pinaceae family native to North Africa, cedar is an aromatic, durable and light wood. It has always been appreciated by cabinet makers and sculptors and is also known for its medicinal properties; its resin was used in ancient Egypt.
Cedar is a dry, sophisticated, enveloping and comforting woody note. Its unique resin is powerful and pervasive, and was used by Egyptian priests in the embalming process.
Its woody note brings warmth to the cold seasons and its antiseptic resin cleanses.
Cedar is relaxing and calming, and is known to:
✓ Promote meditation and soothe nervous tension,
✓ Help to overcome sleep disorders,
✓ Help to fight against anxiety, stress and exhaustion,
✓ Act as an excellent natural moth repellent and air purifier.

Each candle is made according to ancient expertise and handcrafted in our workshop in Normandy; the candles’ perfume comes from a blend of natural raw and synthetic materials. Since 2022, each of our candles and botanical palets are formulated with 100% vegetable wax, from European organic rapeseed.
To limit the packaging’s environmental impact, no plastic or non-essential materials are used. Carrière Frères opts for a natural approach with boxes made from 100% recycled and recyclable FSC paper, labels made from FSC paper (40% recycled) and printing using vegetable-based inks.
Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 2 hours at a time.
Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies, and allow it to solidify before re-lighting.
Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch at all times, to avoid any black smoke. Gently re-position the wick while the wax is still molten.
Always protect the surface on which the candle rests.
Once only ¼ inch of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
