Forest Bathing (shinrin-yoku in Japanese) is the act of 'taking in the forest atmosphere' i.e. being in nature - and that is exactly what I have replicated in this botanical candle! The healing, fresh aroma of Fir Balsam, Vetiver and the woody base notes of Cedarwood are all found in this candle.
With added snowflake obsidian crystals which help balance mind, body and spirit and also nettle leaf botanics on top.
Close your eyes and let this candle surrender you to the sights, sounds and smells of nature and letting the forest in.
These crystals have been charged and cleansed under the full moon with sage to get the most out of their natural energies.
Hand poured with soy wax and a wood wick, which delightfully crackles as it burns making you feel as if your sitting around a fire.
100% Vegan & Handmade.
Approximate burn time - 30/50 hours
Candle comes in a reusable glass 6oz/17oz jar.
Please visit our Wooden Wick Care guide before buying these candles. They burn differently (and more beautifully!) to the typical cotton candle but can take some getting used to.
Note: Always take the dried botanics off the top of the candle before lighting!
I love the candles from Luna and Lux, they all smell and look amazing! They burn really well and arrived in good time.
It was a gift for my husband. He says is a truly bathing forest and he'll repeat purchase very soon.
When my friend died last month, a witch friend and I did a ritual in the forest; a deeply powerful emotional experience of letting go and safe passage. It was one of the most intense experiences of my life.
My witch friend bought me this candle as a symbol of remembering that experience, and when I opened it, I was catapulted back to that dark night, surrounded by candles, incense smoke, and earth.
It felt so precious, like that spell had been captured and preserved, and I didn't want to burn it.
So, my witch friend bought me a second one 🙈 now I have one that burns nightly and another I can keep as a lasting reminder of that night, and my friend's passing 🌙💙
I brought the forest bathing candle, and it smells amazing. It's not overpowering like some scented candles that make me cough (I have asthma), it is just a lovely clean natural smell and I am so happy that I have found a scented candle that I can use. I can't wait to try some of the other scents.
Beautiful hand made products, beautifully packaged and delivered on time, highly recommended independent business.
