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 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 Yellow
Yellow, with its bright and mood-lifting hue, is typically associated with clarity, happiness and communication. It’s a vibrant colour, reflecting the shade of the sun – a source of warmth, vitality and light, rather than darkness. Within the chakra system, yellow represents the solar plexus area.
In Buddhism, the colour yellow is treated with high regard, as the robes worn by Buddhist monks are radiant saffron yellow. Gautama Buddha chose the robe colour to represent a symbol of humility and separation from materialistic society.
In magic, yellow represents intellectual achievement, travel, moving house and career mindedness, and is linked to the planet Mercury.
But yellow does have some negative associations. Our relation to yellow can easily be thrown off balance, as it’s also related to fears, nervousness and anxiety. This can be rectified by addressing the negative issues – facing fears, dealing with anxiety and nerves – and can be helped by rebalancing the chakras, doing reiki or other forms of healing.
