CONFESSIONAL - SPIRITUALITY scented candle 320g
Has anyone ever wondered what’s the scent of a confessional? What is the fragrance emitted by wood worn from kneeling? What is the scent of a separator between priest and penitent? Which emotions experienced during confession will leave a trace in the form of a scent permeating the corners and spaces of a confessional? What is the scent of mercy? Józef Tischner’s book “W krainie schorowanej wyobraźni” [In the realm of sick imagination] inspired us to create the candle. Among other things, he wrote how it feels to be torn between being a friend and confidant and a judge, but also about the cleansing that confession may bring, about love and fears that it is so often intertwined with. The scent of a confessional, therefore, is not only the aroma of wood; first of all, it’s the fragrance of a balm that soothes the internal pain, the scent of forgiveness and love.
CONFESSIONAL is a scent that will help us cleanse our thoughts, wash away the haste and problems of daily life, and feel that we can, once again, afford a symbolic new beginning.
Burning a candle
To ensure that your candles last as long as possible, we recommend that you read the following tips.
Each candle burning session should not last shorter than until the wax is melted all the way across the surface. To prevent black flames, trim the wick to about 0.5 cm before the next time you lit a candle. Remove the cut portion from the candle. On single occasion, do not burn the candle for longer than 4 hours. Avoid moving or tilting a burning candle.
If the wick is leaning slightly, gently straighten it before the wax hardens again. It is recommended to wait until the wax hardens completely before lighting a candle up again. It's best to use a candle extinguisher or a candle snuffer hat to extinguish a candle. It’s also important not to let the candle burn all the way down. We recommend that you discontinue burning the candle when there remains less than 1 centimeter of unmelted wax.
Do not store the candle in damp places or in places exposed to direct sunlight. If the candle requires cleaning, it can be gently washed in cold water and left to dry out before next use. It’s worth noticing that wax colour can differ depending on the fragrance, which is a natural phenomenon resulting from oil composition.
The candle should always be placed in a safe, temperature-resistant place. It’s important to place the candle away from flammable materials such as furniture and curtains and sources of heat, such as radiators and TVs. Keep burning candles away from draughts.
If there are a few candles burning, keep a minimum distance of 20 centimetres between them. It’s also important not to leave the burning candle unattended. Do not move the burning candle to avoid the risk of spilling hot wax.
Remember that the flame should not reach glass walls as it may cause damage and cracking. If you’re hypersensitive to fragrances, exercise necessary caution while burning the candle.
It’s also important to keep candles away from children and pets to avoid accidental access to flame and prevent potential dangers.
