The Ostara Candle
Ostara is the 4th stop on the wheel of the year, also known as the Spring or Vernal equinox. This is a day of perfect balance, with equal light and dark as the days become longer and the nights shorter. 🌱
We welcome the energy of the Sun God as he overtakes the winter darkness and we honor Ostara, the Goddess of the Dawn with celebrations of renewal and rebirth. 🌞
Greet the sunrise at dawn and enjoy the sunset at dusk on this day, begin work in your garden, or just get outside to enjoy the beauty of the natural world coming alive. 🌿

ABOUT OUR CANDLES:
Our candles are hand poured using 100% soy wax and we only use phthalate free fragrances.
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.
ALWAYS burn on a stable heat resistant surface that is out of open air drafts.
ALWAYS Keep out of reach of children and pets.
NEVER extinguish a burning candle with water.
