More about Candlemas- Candlemas marks the half-way point between the winter solstice and spring equinox. In a secular setting, this is the time that new candles are made and set aside to cure; and the candles that were made last year are brought out for use in the coming year.
The rhythm of the natural world is the focus of this event as it marks the final days of winter and provides a still point before the coming of busy spring work. Candlemas is a time for children and adults to relax in the warm smells of beeswax and the quiet work of creation.
Shining with a light that resonates with the same vibrational frequency as the sun, beeswax candles create a more soothing light than any other candle. Beeswax cleans the air by releasing negative ions which attach to and drop dust and pollution particles to the ground. Unlike paraffin and other waxes, they are chemical free, and hypo-allergenic.
