Limited Edition Winter Solstice Copper Cup Candle
A beautiful natural soy candle with a gentle aromatherapy blend created to embody the comfort and joy of winter. Featuring our own hand made lodgepole pine absolute made from lovingly wildcrafted resin, with evergreen, smoky cedarwood and a hint of mulling spices.
This candle was created to honour Yuletide celebrations at the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, traditionally celebrated by lighting fires to welcome back the return of the sun. From this night on, the days get longer signifying the rebirth of the Oak or Sun King. Bonfires were lit in the fields and crops and trees were "wassailed" with toasts of spiced cider. Gifts of clove spiked apples and oranges laid in baskets of evergreen boughs were shared amongst neighbors, wrought with symbolism and blessings for a bountiful new year.
The copper cup casts a beautiful shimmering light and illuminates the dark as a nod to our ancestors and old traditions. The cup can be washed clean with hot water after the candle is done and used daily to help increase well being throughout the new year.
Copper is renowned to have many health benefits, from increased metabolism of minerals to collagen production, to immune boosting abilities, to weight management, to antioxidants and even cognitive functions.
To reap the rewards of copper, fill your cup with fresh water before bed and let it sit overnight- the benefits are believed to increase after the water has sat in a copper vessel for at least 8 hours. Drink the water upon waking.
