Crown Chakra Candle – Violet (Plant Wax & Essential Oils)
Dimensions: About 4.5 cms (1.75 inches) tall.
Burning time: 16-18 hours.
This candle has an aroma of Patchouli, Labdanum and Frankincense and supports the Crown Chakra Sahasrara. The Crown Chakra is linked to the top of the head and embodies spirituality, idealism and perfection. It is made from pure plant wax with different natural essential oils.
This candle is produced using ‘stearin’ or palm wax and which includes 3% of pure essential oils. Stearin is a renewable source that can be replanted and makes the candle burn very clean and smokeless. The wick used in the candle is pure cotton and as a result of this, you tend to have a very steady bright flame and no waste-product as the candle burns itself out. The candle is paraffin free and has no metal-lead, zinc contents or any animal derived ingredients.
Leaflet on inside of packet reads :
Inner Peace is the best investment for World Peace.
Before lighting your candle, please take a few moments for a short meditation. The light of the candle will be dedicated to your Self and to all sentient beings. To your wish to think and act purely. To heal which needs to be healed. To your wish to purify your spirit. You may also direct your attention and your wish to one or more chakras and to specific wishes for yourself and others. Doing this, you will help yourself and the world, just from within.
100% pure natural Palm Wax is made from fruit berries of the palm oil tree. This same high quality palm tree oil can be found in hand lotions, shampoos and cosmetics. It’s the purest non-GMO food quality wax. Palm Wax is made just like essential oils simply pressed and distilled. Soy and paraffin candles involve solvent extraction using petroleum chemicals like hexane.
Keep the burning candle out of reach of children and animals and never unattended. Place candle on a heat-resistant base. Do not place the candle near curtains or open windows.
More About the Symbolism of the Colour Purple
Purple is traditionally a royal colour and sign of dignity. Garments made of purple cloth were typically worn by high priests, emperors, military leaders and magistrates in the Roman times, as well as having a strong association with Osiris, and Ancient Egyptian god.
The colour gained its superior authority as dying cloth purple was an expensive process, involving collecting secretions from two types of molluscs, so only the wealthiest people in society could afford to have clothes made of the colour.
In terms of magic, purple is linked to the spiritual dimension, psychic development, wisdom and spiritual strength. People often use the colour, whether through meditation or visualisation, to try and increase their spiritual development and access higher states. Likewise, in the chakra system, purple / violet relates to the crown chakra.
