When people hear Frankincense/Myrrh & Orange, they immediately think of the baby Jesus or spiritual settings. Where did that orange come from?
What a beautiful reputation this combination carries.
Frankincense/Myrrh is from the sap of the Boswellia and Commiphora trees growing on the horn of Africa & Middle East. Used in many spiritual practices, health, and healing, aromatherapy has been proven to help diminish anxiety and present a calm mind and spirit.
Our 8oz Frankincense/Myrrh candle gives a soothing, earthy, but sweet/citrus aroma, creating peaceful, calming, and happy vibrations we could all use! No matter what, frank & myrrh always also carry an element of protection and clearance of bad vibes. The orange is about happiness and vibrance.
All of our candles give a subtle but brilliant, inviting, and refreshing scent you will enjoy. You may use this candle to refresh your space, massage your loved one, in meditation, or at altar rituals. Our candles are scented with body oil fragrances and soy-based with added coconut oil and shea butter, promoting eco-friendly, sustainable ingredients made in reusable vessels.
Soy product, skin safe, suggested use massage only. Includes orange oil, do not use in direct sunlight. Always burn candles in clear open safe spaces on appropriate surfaces.

I'm extremely pleased with my candle. I've always dealt with anxiety. This candle has really helped me with my meditation sessions. It's amazing. I will tell everyone I know about Efua's Baby! Much Love!
Good Morning Nandi, Just wanted to let you know that afte I wash my hair, your butter is perfect for locking in hydration! ❤️It’s been my go-to during the quarantine.🙌🏾
I ordered a surprise gift for colleagues at Howard University Hospital Labor and Delivery Unit. Efua’s Baby 1977 hand delivered a beautiful package with bonus goodies she even included a personal note from myself and her. It was enough for L/D, Postpartum, NICU / Nursery and Dr. break rooms. The lotion containers can be easily sanitized for multiple use. Hand washing and sterilization take a terrible toll on our skin. A massage with Efua’s Baby during a break from patient care is a treat during long 12 hour shift. The staff 🙏🏾❤️😷
These smells have been getting me through quarantine. Lighting these candles seriously transports me somewhere else -- so necessary during these months at home. The frankincense & myrrh candle makes my home feel like somewhere totally different and i can just feel the stress leaving my body. On repeat purchase.
Owner, Artist, Creator
Nandi Tonge-Gabremedhin is an artist, creationist, and the owner of Efua's Baby. Nandi was raised in Teaneck, NJ and Harlem, NYC later moving to Washington DC to finish high school at Duke Ellington School of Performing Arts. Then attending Howard University to study Dance and Fashion Merchandising. Nandi left Howard to raise her new daughter and start a family. Currently, Nandi still lives in the DC area where she handcrafts soy & coconut oil candles while developing other creative works all inspired by and in honor of her mother, Efua Sauda Tonge.
Efua Sauda Tonge was lost August 14, 1990, to breast cancer. Leaving behind a husband Tschaka Tonge Sr., eldest son Tschaka, son Seku, daughter Tiyika and daughter Nandi, their youngest child. Nandi has always embodied the style and grace of her Mom. She feels her mother's spirit shining thru her when she's wholesomely at her best. Around 2010, she started using the hashtag #EfuasBaby as an homage to her mom's essence and energy. A fitting tribute from the "Baby" of the family.
On travel to amazing Cuba Nandi had an experience that pushed her to consistently burn candles for her mother Efua and grandmother Muriel. While burning candles for her mother and grandmother, Nandi preferred soy candles due to the toxicity and dangers found among paraffin wax candles. Soon her creative instinct flourished and she decided to teach herself how to make soy candles herself. Now, Nandi is a growing small woman business owner. Married to Haile Gabremedhin, owner of the HVAC company, STM Services. Together they have four children Sahmira, Tafari, Mekonnen, and Almaz. The entire Gabremedhin Tribe is involved in making this business possible, and that's a beautiful thing. Nandi is a Creationist so you can expect more inspired gifts to follow under the EB77 umbrella. Efua's Baby is on the rise, so stay tuned!
