Here at panda madness candles, we decided to combine two of our hobbies. That's right each eggshell comes from an egg laid within 2 days of this candle being made. These are fully functional candles and have a french lavender smell; however, they will not last as long as traditional big candles. These are primarily decorative candles. This would make an awesome gift or just decorating your own home! The cups come in different colors and shape each one in a sense is unique just like the eggs used.
