Candles, Candles, and Candles
There is nothing quite like candlelight to subtly alter the atmosphere and soften the mood. I often burn candles in my home while trying to wind down from my day. Candlelight and my favorite iTunes playlist usually do the trick. I purchase candles to sell in the bookstore that I personally would like to burn.
For Safety, I like the tall pillars encased in glass. I can comfortably close my eyes knowing the flame is safely contained in the glass holder. Aloha Bay makes candles using 100% vegetable palm wax which has a pleasant neutral scent while burning. These candles come in a variety of rich deep colors.
I also like the ritual candles. These smaller pillar candles come in a variety of colors and each candle comes with a ritual charm representing the quality of consciousness to be embraced. "Gentle Healing" is one such quality and the label on the candle reads as follows:
"I have placed myself in Ritual Consciousness. My energy is focused with a desire to create and alter my destiny. I deliver the strength of wholeness to heal my heart from grief, pain, and fear. Gentle healing is consuming my being."
