The fires that have ravaged California this month have brought an incredible loss of human life and homes, damage to plants, animals and habitat, and serious health hazards to everyone in the region. Though very lucky to be spared from fire, my health and the production season of Narrow Bridge Candles have been impacted by threat of fire, evacuation, and dangerous air. I am taking good care and praying for the safety and healing of everyone impacted, and will be offering herbal medicine donations to folks in this area.
The gravity of global climate chaos has continued to reveal itself with overwhelming devastation. During this scary time, I have become more clear about my contributions and what I hold for our collective. My work as a candle-maker means living in deep relationship with the element of fire, honoring it's contained expression in balance and right relationship, and sharing that magic, awe and honor with you in material form. Thank you for seeing me and supporting my work, and thank you for all of the essential pieces of our collective work that each of you hold.
BURNING BEESWAX CLEANS INDOOR AIR!
Though it may seem counter-intuitive to burn candles during a time of smoky air, burning beeswax candles can have a powerful impact on indoor air quality. When a beeswax candle burns, the wax first liquifies, then vaporizes. As the beeswax vapor enters the air, it also disseminates negative ions which cause toxins and particulate matter -- dust, allergens, and other respiratory irritants -- to drop out of the air. AND if you love the smell of beeswax, likely so does your immune system. The smell alone can be immune supportive.
Keep an eye out for a spring article with more on the healing power of beeswax...
As a result of evacuation and hazardous air, the quantity of candles available this year may be limited.
