Rose Hip Candle
The delicate floral scent of rose mingles with the spicy scent of tea and lemon in our Rose Hips Candle.
The inspiration for this scent profile came to designer Colleen Echohawk (Pawnee, Athabascan) thanks to the prolific Nootka roses found citywide in her Seattle home. “I love Seattle in the springtime,” shares Colleen, “and one of my favorite flowers to see are the gorgeous pink roses that blooming in May all over Washington. We have the same roses where I’m from in Alaska, so wild roses are a really beautiful merger of both my Alaska and Washington homes.” Named after the Nuu-Chah-Nulth people of the Pacific Northwest Coast, the Nootka Rose is found up and down the Pacific Coast, from southern Alaska to Northern California.
Poured in a classic smoky-black glass candleholder, our label includes the word c̓ək̓apaʔ, which is Lushootseed for “rose hips.” “It was really important to us to include Lushootseed on the packaging of this very Pacific Northwestern candle,” shares Colleen. “Lushootseed is one of the languages of the original people in the Pacific Northwest, and we honor all the Salish, Puget Sound Salish, and Coast Salish people—especially the Snoqualmie Tribe, Eighth Generation’s tribal owners—who have been stewards of the land Seattle is on since time immemorial.”
