Mother Earth’s powerful energetic vibration connects us to her, deeply grounding us in the early realm in stability, comfort and peace. The Gaia candle is an alchemy of stabilising oils of lavender and immortelle to soothe our heart and root us in the present, along with gentle florals to refresh and uplift, bringing clarity and equilibrium of mind and rejuvenating our spirit. Gaia’s magic is in balancing our physical, etheric and astral bodies, holding us in a safe and sacred space. This beautiful porcelain container is handmade in Somerset and embellished with iron oxides and gold lustre.
This beautiful vessel is handmade by ceramicist Rebecca Wordsworth at her studio, a converted dairy in the Somerset countryside. It is porcelain painted with oxides and finished with gold lustre.
A combination of organic wild African beeswax, organic Sri Lankan coconut oil, organic sesame oil, organic olive oil and organic hemp oil.
How to use
On first use, burn Gaia until the surface of the wax pools to the edge of the candle to ensure an even burn next time. Trim the wick to 1/4” before each use, to avoid blooming and black soot. Never leave a lit candle unattended or near surfaces and materials that can catch fire.
The oil can also be used directly on the skin and in the bath for massage and to lock in moisture. It is formulated to never get too hot for the skin. After 15-30 minutes, once the wax has pooled to the edge, pour a little into your hand. Massage the relaxing, nurturing oil into skin to relieve muscle aches, fatigue, headaches and insomnia, and create the feeling of self-love. Can also be used on a growing belly to ease stretch marks and in postpartum to encourage circulation and soften a c-section scar.
Once your candle is finished, you can reuse the vessel as a bud vase or as a pot for pants, pens or make-up brushes. Remove any remaining wax by warming in a low oven and pouring it out. Wash and reuse.
Ease your physical body and connect with your deeper self with this nurturing ritual based on the ancient healing wisdom of Ayurveda. Light your candle, sit comfortably in a warm room and close your eyes. Breathe slow, relaxed breaths while the fragrances of rose geranium and Roman chamomile soothe and calm you, mandarin refreshes and uplifts, lavender awakens feelings of peace and love, and immortelle uplifts your consciousness.
Once the surface of the candle is melted (you could run a bath while it melts) pour a little of the oil into your hands and massage slowly into the skin. Use long flowing movements on limbs and torso, circular movements on joints, and on your hands and feet. Be present in the feeling of your touch, with love and gentleness for yourself. In Ayurveda, self-massage is an act of self-love. After the ritual, softly gaze into the flame and thank yourself for this special time.
