The Secret Ingredient
A little bit about what goes into our recipes

Your Azimai candle has been made with a combination of bees and soy wax, which not only makes it a better burning candle, it makes it better for you. Beeswax releases negative ions when it burns; this means it gets rid of the bad stuff in the air such as pollen, dust and dirt. Ultimately your candle can help to reduce hay fever, asthma, and allergies, whilst harmonising your surrounding space.
Each of our naturally felled, raw wooden lids have been created by Elephant Wood, Zambia – giving you an extra little piece of Zambia to take home with you.
For radiant soft skin...
We know what a treat it is to indulge in a really good bar soap, when you wash your hands that little bit longer because the lather is so rich and creamy. So we came up with the perfect recipe combining Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil and Beeswax. Then we enriched our soap by adding either baobab oil for its vitamin packed and rejuvenating properties, or avocado oil for its regenerative and moisturising qualities.
Just so you know...
All of our uniquely fragranced candles and soap are handmade in the South Luangwa Valley in Zambia. Our ingredients are all indigenous to Africa, our home.
Our name ‘Azimai’ means a respectful term for ‘women’ in our local Chinyanja language. Here in the Luangwa we have a wonderful community, filled with inspirational women. This stirred in us a desire to work towards training these remarkable ladies to create luxury soap and candles in the middle of the Zambian bush.
All Azimai products are made with ethically-sourced, natural and indigenous ingredients, because that’s how we believe it should be.
We want to share all that Africa has to offer; for your health, your well-being and your happiness. Each of our soap and candles has been individually created using African botanicals and essential oils. We pride ourselves on our unique combinations from the pods of the ancient Baobab and the nourishing avocado fruit; to the seductive scent of frangipani and jasmine flowers; to the spicy bark of the cassia tree, and the aromatic wild white thyme.
