The Cancer Candle
Cancer ♋ June 21 - July 22
Element: Water • Ruler: Moon • Color: Silvery Blue
Those born under the sign of Cancer are sensitive and nurturing by nature. Ruled by the moon, this sign is highly empathic and intuitive. Cancer has an ability to pick up the energies in a room and are highly in tune with the vibrations of their surroundings. Much like their celestial symbol, the crab, Cancers have an exterior "shell" that serves as protection for their sensitivities. Cancers are patient, creative, and driven. They make loyal and kind friends, but will become moody and withdrawn if they feel unappreciated.
The Cancer Candle is hand poured with 100% soy wax and scented in sweet and comforting Vanilla Silk. The candle is decorated with blue vervain, hibiscus flowers, and rose quartz crystal chips.
Those born under the zodiac sign of Cancer are the most nurturing of all the signs. They enjoy scents that make them feel comfortable and at home. We chose Vanilla Silk for Cancer because the scent is so warm and sweet, just like our beautiful Cancer friends.
Vervain and Hibiscus Flowers decorate the candle, both of which are associated with the element of water, as is Cancer. Vervain provides protection and peace, something that Cancer appreciates greatly. Hibiscus is also associated with the moon, and with Cancer being ruled by the moon this flower resonates strongly with them. Hibiscus is also symbolic of beauty and mystery.
Rose quartz is a recommended crystal for Cancer because it has a nurturing and compassionate vibe that matches the nature of a Cancer personality. Rose quartz is the stone of love, and can help Cancer with self love, as well as love and forgiveness of others.
ABOUT OUR CANDLES:
Why is soy wax better than parrafin?
Soy wax is an all natural vegetable wax that is made from, you guessed it - soy beans! This makes it 100 times more sustainable as it is derived from a renewable resource, where paraffin wax is derived from petroleum, coal, or oil shale.
Soy wax burns slower and cleaner, and has no additives or preservatives. It is a healthier choice for us and the environment 🌍.
Hemp wicks are also a healthier alternative to standard cotton wicks. Hemp is a fast growing, sustainable and renewable resource. These wicks produce little to no black smoke, are lead and zinc free, and last longer!
Candle Safety and directions:
Trim the wick of your candle to 1/4 inch prior to first use and every time you burn it.
Soy wax has a memory. When you burn a soy candle and then extinguish it, the next time you burn it, the wax will only melt across as far as it did the first time. Let your candle burn long enough on the first burn to melt all the way across the top to prevent tunneling.
Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Never extinguish a burning candle with water.
Always burn on a stable heat resistant surface that is out of open air drafts.
Keep out of reach of children and pets.
