Many island people use peat for fuel.
Peat-banks are cut by hand in Spring, the thick turf slabs piled up and left to dry in the sun.
At the end of summer they are brought home, and arranged into big, neat peat-stacks, to be burned over winter.
They produce a distinctive thick, aromatic, mossy aroma when burned
This 4cm, 50g candle comes in an aluminium pot with a transparent lid, and is fragranced with the sharp, aromatic, smoky scent of burning peat.
