These sweet two-inch candles are deceptively long-burning. They come gift packaged in a sturdy keeping box with a lovely wooden candle holder, a little slide-box of wooden match sticks, and a small note clarifying the chakra colors and uses.
These hand-rolled beauties are made of pure beeswax, which burns driplessly and cleanly, and doesn't ionize the carcinogenic nastiness into your breathing air (where, after all, do you suppose wax goes when it burns?) that most synthetic waxes/candles release. It comes from the natural world virtually ready for use, surpassing even clean-burning soy candles in its teeny carbon footprint. It smells rich and heavenly, and it is one of the longest-burning waxes you'll find, which is why it has been prized for ages in candlemaking.

QUICKIE CHAKRA PRIMER: Each color corresponds to an energy point in your body that many believe to be engaged by the use of those colors (among other things). Color therapy in this manner aims to balance and enhance our body's energy centers and also to help stimulate our body's own healing/creative processes. Big speech coming up, for example? Activate your throat chakra with the blue candle, intentioning your ability to verbalize clearly and powerfully.
Not into chakras? These are also the perfect size for prayer, meditation, and intention. "Oh my, honey, I'll keep you in my prayers/thoughts" suddenly has a physical outlet when you take the moment to choose a candle and light it with that person in mind. Putting intention to the act makes it powerful, and lighting a candle accomplishes it in a perfectly simple, beautiful way.
