First and foremost, this candle celebrates life! It is the culmination of rainbow colored organza ribbon, accented with a maypole floral ring of rosebuds, lavender and beautiful Spring flowers. Each of my hand dipped, hand embellished herbal candles has been designed with a specific intention using my own Angel’s Mist Essential Oils. I utilize premium naturally colored wax and pure cotton wicks.
Measuring 2 1/2″ x 7 1/2 inches tall, they are long lasting with a burn time of 95-120 hours. Each candle is decorated with brilliant ribbons, fragrant herbs and summer flowers! This candle is scented with lovely lavender and romantic rose essential oils.
The floral ring on top of the candle can be removed before lighting and used as a beautiful DOOR KNOB HANGER!
The Celtic holiday of Beltane or May Day begins celebration on the eve of May 1st. Halfway between the vernal equinox and the summer solstice, Beltane symbolizes the start of the summer or the “light half of the year”. This holiday honors the event of procreation and in Celtic lore, celebrates fertility. The Beltane Fire is symbolic of light returning and days lengthening. The lighting of bonfires (and this candle) is a ritual done in order to sanctify, purify and cleanse the body and soul of old habits and negativity. The phallic Maypole, was an ancient tradition of dancing around a large tree or brightly decorated pole with ribbons and flowers.
