Our inspiration...the depths of time. Our motivating force...the present leading to a reinvigorated future, deeply rooted in a 4000-year long history. And the journey began...Triggered by the discovery of the ancient Perfumery of Cyprus, one of the oldest perfumeries of the eastern Mediterranean, we wandered through the captivating scents of Mother Earth... so we created Μotherland. We evoked the past with the use of the so called “mythical” method, which constitutes a survival guide, for us at Motherland, in today’s world. Thus, after arduous two-year long efforts, we brought myth and history to the present, in a manner that enables us to successfully communicate with the recipients of our art, and therefore bring order to the disorder that the fragmentary aspect of modernity bestows upon it. Hence, through this titanic struggle, we achieved time coherence – we achieved the scent of Mother Earth.

All of our candles come from nature, and, when they are returned to it, they reconstruct and enrich it. They are not merely friendly to the environment, they are its amalgam, achieved through human intervention...our own hands.

  • Candle Care and safety

    • Initial burning of candle should be approximately 1 hour per 2,5 cm of candle diameter.

     • Allow your candle to burn for 3–4 hours the first time you light it. This will create a large enough “melt pool” and ensure that your candle burns evenly and for its full life.

     • Always trim your wick before each use, removing all charred wood from previous burns. The wick should be trimmed to between ⅛ and ¼ inch. If you don’t, the wick may not stay lit long enough to fuel the flame, causing it to extinguish itself or it might smoke. To trim a wooden wick remove all charred wood we suggest a wick trimmer.

     • Never leave a candle burning unattended.

    • Burn candles out of reach of children and pets.

     • Always place candles on a heat-resistant or a non-flammable base.

     • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire.

     • Do not burn candles in a draft.

     • Never move a burning candle. Allow the candle to cool and solidify before moving. The candle container and wax can become extremely hot when in use.

    Now you can relax and enjoy a scent of Cyprus...
