The inspiration for our Chocolate Lava Soy Candle came from the vast lava fields on the Big Island of Hawai’i. If you’ve traveled to the Big Island, you were no doubt in “awe” upon landing and departing Kona National Airport. If you’ve traveled north on the Queen K highway, you may have thought you were on another planet. For many miles on either side, you will see (as far as the eye can see) huge fields of different colored lava.
The Big Island was formed by five volcanoes that erupted:
Mauna Kea (dormant)
Hualalai (active, but not currently erupting)
Mauna Loa (active - last erupted in 1984)
Kilauea (active since 1983)
Lo’ihi (active, underwater)
The Big Island, because of its volcanic activity, continues to grow!
The colors of the lava range from a dark brown (almost black) to lighter shades of brown.
The fields of lava often remind people of different shades or types of chocolates, which in turn, inspired us to create our “Chocolate Lava Soy Candle!”
