Glow Green & Bright with Blue Moon Candles!

Here at Blue Moon Candles we believe passionately in Candlelight.  We also believe in taking care of ourselves, as well as being responsible with our earth.

Most of us realize how important it is to lead a healthy lifestyle by watching the foods we eat and the products we use.  However, most people never think about what goes into the candles they are burning in their most sacred of spaces, their very homes.

We have collaborated on these candles with Luci Weston of Here We Are with Luci.  She is the editor-in-chief of “The Busy Woman’s Guide to a Better, Brighter, Easier Lifestyle on our way to Running the World!” – If you are not already a reader, I highly suggest you give it a look-fantastic information to be found there!

Each of these Pillar candles are handcrafted crafted in All Natural Organic Soy Wax.  Container Candles are All Natural Apricot Wax, and feature drop in refills so they never need to be empty!  We use only 100% unbleached organic Cotton or Hemp Wicks.

There are 3  Essential Oil Blends to choose from~
great for alertness&mental clarity, as well as stress relief.  Sweet Orange&Ginger~ energizing, warming and  comforting.  Bergamot & Grapefruit~ great for anxiety & stress relief, mentally uplifting.  As well as the option to remain fragrance free of course.  All of our essential oil Candle blends are Phthalate free.

Each candle has 3 small polished green Aventurine stones inside.
Once your candle is finished burning you can collect your stones.
 Did you know Aventurine’s name was derived from an accident?  Sometime during the 18th century, Venetian glass workers were preparing molten glass when copper fragments accidentally fell into the glass producing a glass with sparkles.  The name Aventurine comes from the Italian “a ventura” which means “by chance”.

Folklore, Legend & Healing~ Aventurine has been used as a lucky talisman and is a popular stone for gamblers.  Legends say that it is an all-purpose healer, used to reduce stress, develop confidence, imagination and improve prosperity. A legend from ancient says that aventurine was used to improve nearsightedness and to increase the wearer’s creativity.  Many believe that aventurine has the capacity to calm a troubled spirit and bring about inner peace.

It is funny how things work out sometimes.  Serendipity, a ventura, 3 Candles, 3 Fragrances, 3 stones, 3 word names-Blue Moon Candles & Here We Are3 also carries the meaning of abundance & success; the triads of “sun, moon, stars” and “water, fire, wind”.
