Say I Love You with Zena Moon #Gift Guide
Valentine’s Day is a day that we typically put forth an extra effort to display our love and affection to our significant other. Everywhere you go, stores are flooded with the bright pink and red colors of hearts and cupids. You see the heart theme in everything from apparel to foods to crafting decorations and more. Many people celebrate the holiday with a candlelight dinner. Candles provide a warm ambiance. Valentine’s Day is all about romance, and nothing says romance better than a beautiful candle. A candle with meaning is the best way to express your love and ZENA MOON candles are the ideal gift for your loved one.
Thank you Zena Moon for providing me with a Rose scented candle for the purpose of this review.
Like many people, I love candles. I am awed by watching the flickering light and enjoy the fragrance of the various scents. And, since I have animals in my home, I burn candles to clean the air as they eliminate different odors around the house. However, through my research into the benefits of burning candles, I discovered that not only candles clean the air; they also offer a healing experience. Did you know that the color and shape of your candle is important as well? Typically, I have selected candles not so much on shape, as most of the candles that I have purchased in the past have been a circle shape, but more so by their color or fragrance. Take for example, the rose color candle I received from Zena Moon for this review is a cross between a pink and a red candle. A pink candle attracts love, closer friendships, soul mate attraction and affection, whereas a red candle represents passion and sexuality, vitality and physical prowess. In contrast, a brown candle wards off bad omens, holds back situations in crises and is used for grounding. A yellow or silver candle is great for meditation and fulfilling desires.
From the Zena Moon website, it states that “Every Zena Moon candle is created, poured and finished by hand, using a unique blend of color, essential oil derivatives and gemstones. Each element lends its unique energy to the overall intention of the candle. Because of the variety of materials used and our non-mass-produced environment (we’re a small studio, not a factory) each candle’s creation takes time and no two candles ever turn out exactly alike”. The company uses only the highest quality food-grade paraffin wax and 100% cotton wicks in the production process so the candles burn cleanly and evenly. They also contain essential oil-based scents, which are not overpowering and one or two gemstones especially chosen to empower the intent of the candle. Crafted with an eco-consciousness, Zena Moon Candles are vegan and imbued with loving kindness. Each also comes with words of affirmation and a specially chosen gemstone, to serve as a reminder of your journey long after your candle is gone. Let the right candle choose you.
Zena Moon Recommends the Following Candle Care
- Burn your pillar candle one hour for every inch in diameter the first time you light it. This allows the wax pool to reach the edge of the candle, and lets the candle burn down evenly.
- Keep candlewicks trimmed to ¼” at all times. If the flame gets much bigger than 1″ high, blow it out and trim the wick. This ensures clean, smoke-free burning.
- Candles need oxygen—in moderation. Avoid placing candles in drafty areas, including near heater vents or underneath ceiling fans.
- You can keep your candles smooth and silky-looking by gently rubbing them with regular ol’ nylon pantyhose.
- Store your unused candles in a cool, dry, dark place.
- Never leave a burning candle unattended.
- Keep candles out of reach of children, animals and commotion.
- Always burn candles on sturdy, non-flammable holders that are appropriate for the candle’s size. We recommend candleholders that are a minimum of 1½” larger than the candle’s diameter, with a slight curvature and rim.
Never ever ever, fall asleep with a candle burning. This is an extremely easy, tempting and ultimately a dangerous thing to do. As soon as you start feeling the slightest bit drowsy, no matter how cozy the flame makes you feel, extinguish all burning candles.
