Inspiration Behind the Name
Have you heard of the Caesonia hololith?
Legend has it that Roman Emperor Caligula’s wife, Caesonia, was truly a beauty like no other. So much so, that he had her photo etched into a hololith (a ring made from a single piece of stone) and lined with gold to be admired and cherished forever.
This ring is one of the few Marlborough Gems (a collection of jewels collected over time by several Dukes of Marlborough) that exists today. If the legend holds true, this engraving is a symbol of appreciation to her everlasting beauty. This piece dates back to 37AD - 41 AD and will continue to carry on Caesonia’s legacy for generations to come. It is being auctioned by Wartski (a British firm of antique dealers) and is estimated to sell for around $750,000.00
In the same way that this ring carries on Caesonia’s legacy, our blue sapphire buddha candle is an elegant reminder of the grace and tranquility that the Buddha has taught us to live by, and this piece is an appreciation of that. The sapphire blue color is also especially important here because the stone is regarded in chakra theory to open the third eye to receive wisdom and insight.
Yes… I know what you’re thinking, “How does it make sense to buy a 24K gold lined Buddha candle if his teachings tell us to live in detachment of the material world?” And to that I say: “We all need something in our face to remind us to live peacefully every day… Why not have it be something beautiful and adorning?”
-Always keep a burning candle within sight and never leave unattended.
-Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets and any other flammable objects and decorations.
-Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
-Trim candle wicks to ¼ inch each time before burning. This will maintain an even and clean burn.
-Always place candle on a stable, heat resistant surface.
-Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
-Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans, and air currents.
-Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.
-Do not burn a candle all the way down.
-Never touch or move a burning candle when the wax is liquid.
-Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from the candle vessel as this may weaken or cause the glass to break.
-Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle.

WICK & WAX
Our candles are filled with a selective cosmetic grade soy wax blend creating a divine, silky and translucent texture. Each candle contains wicks that are made with 100% cotton which then, along with our perfected wax, results in a beautiful burn, clean flame and a magnificent liquification of wax.
Our vessels are designed and produced through a multiple step process. All vessels are handmade with care and precision. Due to the nature of the handmade process, variations in the finished product are natural, making each vessel unique on its own.
