Beeswax candles are an ancient tradition, offering an alternative to the toxic and polluting paraffin candles. Beeswax candles emit negative ions, which cleans the air of toxins, dust, mold, and pollen. The soothing aromatherpy effect of the candles calms the soul and helps set the mood for meditation. Some people burn a candle in the bedroom for an hour or two before sleeping.
Hug your beeswax candles.
Occasionally it is necessary to gently press the edges of the candle towards the center of the candle to ensure that all of the beeswax burns properly. Do this carefully as your candle is burning or immediately after extinguishing it.
Tunneling – friend or foe.
Tunneling is both desirable and undesirable, depending on your preference. To avoid tunneling, simply hug your candles on occasion while burning (see note on hugging your beeswax candle). A tunneled beeswax candle has a beautiful glow to it, where the flame glows through the thin outer wall of beeswax while burning. We don’t recommend it, but if you want your candle to tunnel, simply avoid hugging your candles, though the pillar walls may become weak and hug on their own. Please be aware lighting the wick may become difficult if the pillars walls become to high.
While meditating, or doing yoga burning your beeswax contributes to the overall experience. Make sure to use safety precautions at all times. Namaste, luvs. ~ Funky Wolf Cafe
