MIRIAM - FOR WOMEN scented candle 320g
MIRIAM fragrance uses the symbolic meaning of various flowers to tell the story of Mary. It’s a candle inspired not by the Holy Mother herself, but also her varied depictions in literature or art. Used here was the aroma of lily of the valley and jasmine; flowers that are to represent Mary’s chastity.
Christian legends say that it was lilies of the valley that sprouted from the tears she shed after Christ's crucifixion. Jasmine blooms in the month of May, which is traditionally dedicated precisely to none other than Mary. In source texts and art this flower is also used as a symbol of the divine love. Rose is the fragrance of MIRIAM; a flower that is equated with beauty, in this case both external and internal one. Roses were also the flowers that highlighted royal dignity, used when depicting rulers. It therefore has a definite flowery, rosy fragrance that also features a woody and musky accent.
MIRIAM is a soothing fragrance with noticeable sweetness balanced by deep, woody notes.
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.
