Day 02 - Intuition

Day 02 - Intuition

Call it your gut. Call it your instinct. Call it "that feeling". Whatever name you give it, our intuition is the communication we receive from our heart, mind, and body that tells us something is right or wrong. It often protects us from harm. It also happens to be the voice we tend to ignore when it doesn't perfectly align with our desires.
Today is all about taking a moment to sit with your intuition. Think about how you interact with the messages your body sends you.

How can honoring you intuition help you find peace?
What messages does your body have for you in this moment? What are the thoughts popping up in your brain as you think about your intuition?
How can I cultivate a deeper relationship with my intuition?
Today's gift is a candle rooted in intuition. Calling on a little bit of mother nature's magic, this candle was based off of the plants, trees, flowers and herbs that can guide us to lean into our intuition. My hope is that you burn this candle in times when you feel unsure, or need a little encouragement to trust your gut. Hopefully it guides your mind and body to find the answers within yourself that you need.

Candle Care Tips: 

Initial Burn - The first lighting on your candle is important and will set the tone for how things will go in the future. Make sure you burn the candle until the wax pool (the melted part around the wick) reaches all of the way to the edge of the jar or tin. This will prevent tunneling and wasted wax. 

General Care + Safety - Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch. Don't burn your candle near flammable stuff (curtains, we're looking at you). Don't leave your candle unattended. Don't burn candles while you're sleeping (Duh, but we gotta say it). Don't burn the candle all the way down to the end. Instead, leave about 1/4 inch of wax at the bottom of the vessel. Keep your candle clean of debris, even the wick trimmings.

Soot - Have you ever burned a candle and noticed black coming off the flame or staining the sides of the jar? That's soot. It happens, but there are ways to prevent it. One step we take is to make sure the wick is sized properly to the vessel and the fragrance load in the wax isn't too heavy. There are a few things you can do when you burn your candle to help alleviate soot issues. 

  • Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times. If soot is still an issue, you can trim it a bit shorter. 
  • Avoid burning your candles near open windows, vents, or fans. It's generally best to just avoid drafts altogether. 
  • Don't burn the candle longer than 3-4 hours at a time.
