Sacral Chakra Candle – Orange (Plant Wax & Essential Oils)
Dimensions: About 4.5 cms (1.75 inches) tall.
Burning time: 16-18 hours.
This candle has an aroma of Cedar, Spruce and Rosemary and supports the Sacral Chakra Swadhisthana. The Sacral Chakra is linked to the lower abdomen and embodies balance and change. 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 Orange
The colours orange and yellow have some similar properties. Like yellow, orange is also strongly associated with the sun and with the saffron shade of the robes worn by Buddhist monks. But it’s also a symbol of fertility, luxury and love.
During ancient times, orange blossom became associated with fertility, and was used in bridal wreaths to help promote new life and in the hope of the couple being successful in their fertility. The tradition did carry on into the Christian era, but the blossom tended to be regarded more as purity, rather than a focus on fertility. The colour was linked to love and marriage in Roman times too, when brides wore orange veils, which were said to be an emblem of the permanence of marriage.
In other societies, the colour orange was linked with luxury and fire, and in China the fruit is a symbol of good fortune. Each year on the second day of the Chinese New Year, oranges were traditionally eaten in the hope of a fortuitous year ahead. Being a mix of yellow and red, orange is also said to be the point of balance “between the spirit and the libido.”
