One October I received a WhatsApp call from my childhood friend Iulia introducing me to Ana. In the past few years Iulia fell in love with yoga, while seeking to have a simpler, healthier lifestyle surrounded only by essentials…
Sounds like me and perhaps, like many of us.
In her search she discovered a yoga studio that she absolutely loves, Ana’s studio.
Pawan yoga studio in Bucharest is an urban yoga sanctuary where people can learn to practice a variety of yoga styles with an emphasis on Kundalini yoga – as taught by yogi Bhajan. Here you can also enjoy gong sound baths, a place for the busy ones to stop, breathe, meditate, recharge… Looking to complete the experience in her studio, Ana was interested in making a candle that would complement her sanctuary.
I was pleasantly surprised by her insistence in confirming that we make for the right partner for her studio. I almost felt interviewed, something I am not really used to anymore…
So after that, we did not really speak again too much… all our ideas were on the table…
Forward many months…
Inspired by Pawan Yoga Studio and our wonderful Iulia this collection of 7 botanical candles follow the specifics of the chakras, from colour and symbol, to the essential oils meant to help you align yourself with the universe.
The natural and botanical candles housed in porcelain are each perfumed with essential oils that since centuries are used by people for their therapeutic properties. Each Chakra is unlocked by specific essential oils that help align and heal the areas of our bodies that each chakra governs.
These are not room fragrance candles; these are therapeutic candles to be burned during meditation, yoga practice, or in your private sanctuary.
Produced integrally in our factory studio and laboratories, we hope that you will enjoy these candles and make them a part of your essentials.
Available from our shop in Cape Town and soon available in Bucharest.
