Throat Chakra Candle – Blue (Plant Wax & Essential Oils)
Dimensions: About 4.5 cms (1.75 inches) tall.
Burning time: 16-18 hours.
This candle has an aroma of Moroccan Rose and Chamomile and supports the Throat Chakra Vishudda. The Throat Chakra embodies creativity and is the centre of communication and self-expression. 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 Blue
Colours can affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states, both consciously and unconsciously. We can use colours to help us feel better, to inject an element of vitality into our life, or to calm strong feelings and promote a sense of peace and relaxation.
The colour blue is typically associated with a range of emotions and states of being including: calmness, purity, truth, wisdom, depression and peace. Different people perceive colours in different ways, so you may have other associations, which are equally valid.
In Buddhism blue is linked to wisdom, and in Hebrew traditions it’s associated with mercy. Both Christ, and the Virgin Mary, have both been depicted wearing shades of blue, representing their detachment from worldly goods, materialism and possessions. Blue is the colour of the sky and as such is associated with a sense of peace, freedom and calmness.
The ancient Egyptians regarded blue as being the colour of truth, and the images painted on the walls of their tombs were on a sky-blue background. It’s also a colour that’s been linked to scores of gods, particularly sky gods, such as the Egyptian Amun, the Greek Zeus, Roman Jupiter, the Hindu Indra, Vishnu and his incarnation, Krishna (who was said to have blue skin).
When people are feeling low in spirits or depressed they’re often said to be, “feeling blue.” It’s thought this phrase may stem from the twilight blues songs sung by African slaves whilst being held captive in North America. In the case of the chakras, blue represents the throat chakra.
