Lughnasadh | 300g
Welcome in the August holiday with The Eco Witch Co. Lughnasadh candle...
A little about Lughnasadh:
Lughnasadh receives its name after the Irish God Lugh. He is a God of many talents and gave his name to the harvest festival in honour of Tailtiu - his foster mother. Lughnasadh is recognised as the first harvest of the year, more specifically for the harvest of barley and wheat.
This Seasonal Magick candle is scented with crisp, sweet apple, warm, spicy cinnamon and nutmeg and then topped with bay, cinnamon bark and sage.
Each Lughnasadh candle will come with a mini herb "besom" made up of a lavender, sage and thyme sprig.
This particular candle is presented in a 300g glass round jar with gold screw-top lid. It will burn for up to 50 hours.
Alongside your Lughnasadh candle, I will also include a mini herb bunch made up of homegrown lavender, thyme and sage sprigs. When making these, I envisaged them as miniature broomsticks which is typically considered a symbol of the hearth and home - a place where will seek comfort and warmth from as the wheel of the year continues to turn closer to the cooler months.
Candle safety and getting the most out of your The Eco Witch Co. candle...
Prior to lighting your candle, make sure that all herbs are out of the way of the wick.
For the first time that you burn your candle, it is important to let it burn completely to the edge. This will guarantee a clean burn for each time you light your candle thereafter and will also prevent tunneling (tunneling results in wasted wax!).
In order to do this, I reccomend you make sure to burn your candle for 3-4 hours the first time it is lit, or at least until the melt pool has reached the edge.
Before lighting your candle each time, trim the wick to approximately 6mm.
Never leave a burning candle unattended, in the way of drafts or close to anything that could catch fire.
Keep burning candles out of reach of children and animals.
Discontinue use once the wax level has reached approximately 10mm from the base of the container.
