Incorporating the element fire such as a barbecue in-season foods, a bonfire at Dusk with loved ones, or lighting a few candles with intention.
We created these Litha candles in the hopes that you'll be feel a deeper sense of connection to the sun and all of the magic and medicine it provides us. We dressed the candle with herbs and crystals that harness something of the sun within each charm.
The wax is made of 100% beeswax, a bit of turmeric and alkanet root for the unique sunshiney color, a touch of rosemary and orange essential oils for a subtle fresh scent and cotton wick. It has a burn time of approx. 7 hours.
**Our altar candles are made with 100% beeswax and natural dyes. Because of this they do best out of direct sunlight, to ensure their beautiful color doesn’t fade.
