Important shipping message: During the summer months, we can only ship candles on Monday or Tuesday. We don't want to run the risk that they will melt while sitting in a hot truck over the weekend.
There are many occasions in our lives deserving of acknowledgment. Perhaps it's a wedding or the birth of a child. It could be a new job or graduation. Maybe you just want to let someone know that you love or appreciate them. Or maybe it is a time of hardship: the death of a loved one, divorce or job loss. It can even be something that may not qualify as a milestone but is still pretty darn important; achieving a goal to finish a half marathon, thanking a teacher for all they do, welcoming a new neighbor, letting someone know you care.
We've all been in these situations so what do we usually do? Sometimes it's hard to know what's best. We might send a card, give them a call, deliver flowers or bake a casserole. These are all great options and when in doubt it's always better to let someone know you care. However, we wanted a way for that message of love or encouragement to continue far beyond the flowers or casserole. And so we created a one of a kind product that does just that.
Our new candles feature a gorgeous custom ceramic vessel, our signature coconut soy wax blend, and sophisticated fragrances. Embedded in each candle is a white quartz stone engraved with the Amani flower design and a word expressing an uplifting message. When the candle finishes burning, the stone will be revealed and the recipient can remove the stone (carefully!) and keep it along with the ceramic vessel. Carry the stone in your pocket or put on a desk or dresser as a daily reminder of the intent and good wishes in which it was given. Or, perhaps, you can pass the stone on to someone else who might need it. The blue and white container does double duty as a pretty planter for succulents.
Here are the new candle sentiments and a few suggestions for when they might be used:
Balance--For all the people who need a little reminder to slow down! Also great for a parent, someone starting a new job or for anyone making a conscious effort to live more mindfully. Features our best selling Earl Grey fragrance.
Courage--For folks facing challenging times or anyone who wants to remind themselves to live life fearlessly. Features our zippy Rosemary Mint fragrance.
Discover--Sometimes we need a reminder to challenge ourselves, try new things, and push ourselves to know more, create more, live more. It could be at school, at work, in art or travel. Discover pushes our boundaries so that we can see our world and ourselves from an expanded perspective. Discover could be appropriate for a new graduate, someone reexamining themselves later in life or at any point along the way. Features our exotic sandalwood vanilla fragrance, Zanzibar Spice.
Dream--Most people think about their future at specific points in their lives: going to college, falling in love, starting a new job. But sometimes, we get caught up in the daily grind of work, school or other commitments and in the process, we stop dreaming about the future we want to create. Perfect for a new graduate, new parent, setting a goal, moving to a new home, starting a business, or just because. Features a juicy peach fragrance with tropical notes.
Faith--Whether it is faith in a higher power, ourselves, or the universe, faith can remind us that even if times are challenging we can persevere. It can also serve as the cornerstone for how we choose to live our lives every day. Perfect for new beginnings such a marriage, during times of struggle and any place in between. Scented with classic lavender fragrance.
Gratitude--A reminder to all the people in our lives that we are thankful for them. Share it with a friend, loved one, teacher, co-worker, neighbor. It's also a great way to remind ourselves to be thankful for all the good things in our lives (and not just in November)! Scented with our sweet and soothing Milk & Honey fragrance.
Love--We were brought into this world to love and what better way to celebrate life than to share that love. Perfect for weddings, birthdays, Mother's Day or just because. Features our fresh and clean Pink Grapefruit scent.
Purpose--We all have a purpose in life. Perhaps it is our family, career or how we choose to live our lives. We might not always know what it is and it might (probably) change in the course of our lives but every one of us is here for a reason. Great for people starting a new job, raising a family or as support for someone. Features our oak & vanilla scent, Bonfire.
Set of 8 Stones (No Candle)--If you choose, you may want to simply have the full set of stones, without the accompanying candle or gift box. These are great if you want to have the option to have a daily or weekly area of focus. These will arrive in a small organza bag for you to give to others or keep for yourself.
