Lighting a Candle is Sacred
Today’s post is brought to you by Chesapeake Bay Candle. I have been using their candles for over a decade and I was very excited to try the wellness fragrances from their Mind & Body collection. All of the candles and reed diffusers in this collection are infused with essential oils.
In today’s busy tech world slowing down and lighting a candle has become a necessity for me. The ritual of lighting a candle and gazing into its flame can rewrite our overstimulated nervous system and turn an ordinary evening into a sacred ritual of quiet contemplation, prayer and gratitude mindfulness. As an Aries sign Yogi I love anything that has to do with flame and fire!
The symbolism of fire and light has a deep meaning to me personally. It is one of the 5 elements and lighting a candle can create the space for inspiration and passion. I am a creative person and I find it a necessity to always create quiet space in which my next idea can come through. I love meditation and mindfulness. Building on this, I have created a class of “Meditation in Motion Yoga” that incorporates the cashmere jasmine scent of Chesapeake Bay Candle’s peace + tranquility candles. The focus of this class is Healing… Healing the Earth; Sacred Healing; Universal Healing.
Healing the Heart!
Rituals are so important because they create the space for growth and transcendence. In the quiet moments of meditation, we can find a connection with the Universal Love, heart expansion and Inspiration for the New.
The Mind & Body Collection from Chesapeake Bay Candle includes 8 wellness fragrances all inspired by nature.
I chose peace + tranquility which is a cashmere jasmine fragrance because I love love love jasmine. Jasmine always takes me back to April nights when spring is renewing us and promising us a new beginning.
The peace + tranquility scent is infused with essential oils of ylang ylang, lemon, cedarwood. It comes in a white frosted glass jar. Together, the color and fragrance help create a safe space where the mind and body can relax and restore.
Here is how Chesapeake Bay Candle describes the peace + tranquility scent:
Fresh clean and airy notes of lily of the valley and bergamot do not betray the relaxing nature of this fragrant aroma. Escape into the comforting arms of exotic jasmine, cotton blossom and rose as they soften the atmosphere. This peaceful floral combination pleasantly rests of delicate cashmere woods, white musk and sandalwood.
