MONASTERY - SPIRITUALITY scented candle 320g
A crisp, foggy morning filled with the scent of ripening lemons and wild plums, flowering hyacinths and trees growing on rocks that are seemingly suspended in the air. That’s the landscape that opens before us with specific notes of the MONASTERY scented candle. The landscape of one of Europe’s most mystic places, the Meteora in Greece, so monumental sandstone structures rising up to 500 metres above the sea level that look as if they were suspended in the air. No wonder those seeking space for contemplation and connection with the absolute, hermits and monks have settled in such surroundings. The stories of first orthodox monasteries in the area dates back to the Middle Ages. It wasn’t until centuries later, however, that anyone apart from monks would set their foot there.
The MONASTERY candle is an attempt to capture the unique atmosphere of this place. What’s interesting, though the composition comprises as many as 14 various fragrance notes, one will not find here scents traditionally linked to church, such as myrrha, incense, or gold. Instead, dominant are notes that resonate with the nature surrounding the monasteries, for it’s the outdoors that emanate spiritual energy and encourages to enter into dialogue with the personal understanding of spirituality. The visual design of the candle refers to the culture of the Orthodox wing of the church. Jerzy Nowosielski’s art and his incredible iconostases were one of the inspiration.
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.
