A salt water maritime flower, the sea aster blooms in salt marshes in September, and is known as "Summer's Farewell". The sea aster is a naturally resilient little flower filled with an unblushing herbaceous fragrance. Aster means "star". With its loamy, saline aroma, the Sea Aster Candle offers a robust botanical experience once lit and enjoyed. This 10 oz., 80 hour burn candle has been proudly hand made in America. The soy wax burns clean, is biodegradable, GMO free, and non-toxic. The wick is pure cotton.
