The Little Apple Of Death - PRETTY.DEADLY. Soy Candle Range
THE LITTLE APPLE OF DEATH - 'MANCHINEEL':
Candle reads: If you brush up against the tree, the sap can cause a violent allergic reaction on your skin. Standing beneath the tree during a rainstorm will cause any skin that comes into contact with runoff to blister. These epidermal effects are caused by the powerful irritant Phorbol, Ingestion can produce severe gastroenteritis with bleeding, shock, and bacterial superinfection. When ingested, the fruit is reportedly "pleasantly sweet" at first, with a subsequent strange peppery feeling, gradually progressing to a burning, tearing sensation and tightness of the throat. Symptoms continue to worsen until you can barely swallow because of the excruciating pain.
All the beautiful illustrations of our deadly flowers have been commissioned by Emily @ Bodies & Botanics. You can book commission work with Emily via her website contact page (www.bodiesandbotanics.com/pages/commissions) which she opens periodically for artwork bookings.
