It's hard to go wrong with wild sagebrush. This fresh, green scent will give you a burst of energy, and lift your mood when you are feeling down. Its reputation for driving away negative energies is well deserved. It's important to note that, despite the similarities in the names, sagebrush and sage are not the same plant! Nonetheless, they are often used for similar purposes, as both plants were traditionally used in cleansing and purifying ceremonies.
All candles are not created equal! These votives are crafted from the finest materials. They are made from vegan waxes that are so pure, they are considered to be food grade. The wicks constructed only from cotton and paper- no metals or other potentially harmful ingredients. And of course, they use essential oils for a strong, long-lasting fragrance.
What makes candles so appealing? Candles truly are one of life's most affordable little luxuries. They fully engage your senses as you burn them- the sight of the flickering flame, the aroma of the essential oils, the gentle heat from the flame. They are an absolute delight, whether you are using them in formal rituals, or as part of your meditation practice, or simply as a way to relax and unwind.
Why should I trim my candle wick? The length of a candle's wick determines how much fuel (the melted wax) is feeding the flame. If the wick is left too long, the candle burns more quickly than it should. It also produces more soot as it burns, which can leave a residue on the walls and ceiling. If the wick is too short, the candle will not stay lit. The ideal length is between 1/8-1/4".
How long will my candle burn? Various factors such as air movement & wick length will affect the overall burn time of any candle. The estimated burn time for these votive candles is approximately 12 hours.
Quote of the moment: "There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" - Terry Pratchett, The Truth
