2021 hasn’t exactly been a banner year for those of us in Singapore. Sure, a session with a punching bag or some stress eating may help – at least for one hot minute. But nothing beats burning a candle when you’re burnt out. New sustainable brand Innerfyre.Co is lighting the way in the self care department, with its line of meditation candles made from pure essential oils and a luxurious wax blend containing coconut and rice bran. Each one is infused with a higher percentage of pure essential oils than the regular fragrance oils found in soy or paraffin candles.
The brand’s Botanical Healing Series is crafted with 100 percent essential oils. These candles aren’t just escapist but also meditative; they can harness the healing power of nature to calm your mind, soothe your heart, or invigorate your spirit. Each one comes with a deck of journal cards and a self-care audio meditation. And they all serve a different purpose, so read on to find your self care favourite!
For those who’d like to live their truth.
Rose & Lemon Verbena
Rose reminds us that we can be sweet, beautiful and thorny all at once, and that it’s okay to love these many aspects of ourselves. It also helps to soften and open the heart. So, if you’re holding in your emotions, the flower allows for a release of suppressed tension and feelings. This meditation candle is best for when a person is comfortable being emotionally vulnerable.
For those who’d like to love and be loved
Ylang Ylang & Rose Geranium
Rose geranium can feel like a big hug in times of need. It’s a heart protector – therefore, this essential oil candle provides nourishment, protection and a sense of strength to our inner self. This strength, however, is not from a place of hardness or rigidity but from a gentle and quiet confidence.
For those who feel alone
Spiced Bergamot & Sage
Warm and uplifting, spiced bergamot helps you open up and receive the goodness that already surrounds you. This meditative candle stimulates the senses and prepares you for new experiences and stronger relationships. By breaking the cycle of negative thinking, it also helps you step away from isolation and despair, and reconnect with the love and abundance that’s always been available to you.
For those who are stressed
French Thyme & Lavender
Life, with all its complexities, may have left you with a weary soul. Like a comforting lullaby, lavender soothes the spirit and invites us to let our mind and body rest. With a gentle wave of calm surrounding you, you can release the need to control and predict the outcome of situations, trusting that all things have their own way of working out.
For those who want to celebrate joy
White Tea & Neroli
Neroli’s honeyed aroma can reconnect you to your cheerful, confident heart – reminding you that joy is your natural state and that you can always view the world with childlike wonder and innocence. With a hint of honeysuckle, the floral notes allow you to offer your radiant truth in your own unique and bold way, while providing a sense of grounding, and bringing the present moment into better focus.
