________________________________________________

Boudica (also known as Boudicca and many other names) was a queen of the Celtic Iceni tribe circa 60 AD. After the death of her husband, Prastutagus, the Romans occupying much of Brittania refused to honor their agreements and publicly flogged Boudica as well as defiling her daughters.

That was when Rome realized who they were dealing with.

Boudica led a revolt against the Romans, gathering a band of warriors from nearby tribes who pledged fealty to her against their common enemy, and together they laid waste to every Roman-occupied settlement in their path, including Londinium. 

Although her campaign of vengeance was eventually ended by Suetonius, Boudica's name gained renown, and she is now remembered as one of history's most infamous warrior queens.

Available in candle tin or glass tumbler format.

Tins: Our 8oz candle tin measures 3" wide by 2" deep, and holds approximately 7 oz of wax by weight. The wax is topped with an overspray of iridescent glitter. The candles burn for approximately 30-35 hours.

Glass tumblers: These candles measure 3" wide by 3.5" tall, and contain 9 oz of wax for a burn time of 40+ hours. They are topped with a candle-safe glittering overspray.

The glitter I use is safe for use in candles, and the ultrafine particles will not clog your wick.

Turnaround time for candles is 2 weeks. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may occasionally receive a professionally-printed label with a handwritten scent name, similar to what is used in the Secret Menu candles. We are experiencing delays from our label printing service, and would rather not hold up your orders. If you feel strongly about receiving a particular label, please email us at sihayaandcompany@gmail.com and we will do our best to accomodate your request.
