What does Vibrationally Infused mean?

What it means to Vibrationally Infuse the Candles

The purpose of our candles is to act as both a touchstone and reminder of powerful attributes you already have alive within you. Each candle has a unique Vibrational Intention on the back label. These were channeled during special meditations and prayers focused on bringing through the precise energies that would support each individual attribute. Every word and phrase is encoded in a specific way to help anchor the frequencies of the intention and support you in fully remembering it, embodying it and actualizing it in your life. 

Every aspect of the design from the custom Sacred Geometry art to the type of florals and label colors, were meticulously chosen to add to the particular energetic resonance of each individual candle as well.

We also have regular sessions holding the candles in sacred space to further infuse them with love and the intention that they serve the highest needs and expansion of our community.

As you use our candles for your personal meditation, prayer, yoga, ritual, ceremony, holistic provider sessions, home or work location ambiance or special event, all of the energies that have been poured into them each step of the way will be released and synergized with your own beautiful energy to amplify the effects for you and those around you.

Why are your candles fragrance free?

Why Our Candles are Better for You

When we set out to design our Vibrationally Infused Intentional Candles we knew we wanted to create something non-toxic that could be enjoyed by everyone. Children, pets, and people with allergies or health challenges are particularly sensitive to environmental toxins. Even healthy people can develop issues from them over time. Reducing the amount of exposure you have to environmental hazards can help preserve your health now and in the future.

Three key factors that can make candles damaging to your health:

Toxin #1: Lead core wicks
Some candles have lead-core wicks, which don't have to be burned to be harmful, as they release five times the amount of lead that is considered hazardous to children.  The pollutants from a lead-core wick can be released through the air and absorbed through the skin if the candle is touched.

Toxin #2: Paraffin wax
Typical candles are often made with paraffin wax, which when burned releases carcinogens (benzene and toluene) into the air. These toxic fumes can be as dangerous as second-hand smoke

Toxin #3: Fragrance- both synthetic and “natural”
The worst of these is fragrance. Many candles use synthetic fragrances that contain phthalates, which are released into the air when the candle is burned. This can cause a whole host of health issues over time including asthma, endocrine disruption, thyroid ailments, reproductive problems and even cancer.

Scented candles labeled as "made with essential oils", "all natural" or "phthalate free" can still contain some kind of chemical solvents, additives or other fragrance oils to enhance their scent profile or lengthen their shelf-life. Unfortunately, companies are not required to fully disclose use of these and well-meaning candle makers sometimes use these scents without realizing that they still contain ingredients that are harmful.

For these reasons, at Laurel Street we use an all natural clean-burning coconut wax blend with 100% organic cotton wicks that contain no synthetic or otherwise fragrances.

How long do your Intentional Candles last?

Our 8 oz. Intentional Candles have an approximate burn time of up to 56 hours.

Why should I trim the wick and only burn my candles for 4-5 hours at a time?

These are common instructions and good practices for any candle and are meant to prolong a candle’s burn time. A longer wick creates a larger flame, a larger flame melts the wax faster, and the wax melts faster than the wick burns away. So the longer your candle burns, the larger the flame gets, causing your candle to melt faster and faster. Keeping the wick trimmed and burning 4-5 hours at a
time slows everything down so you get a longer burn time.

Additionally, burning your candle for 4-5 hours at a time ensures that the wax melts all the way to the edge of the container. This will prevent your candle from “tunneling”, or burning a hole down the center of the candle while leaving a ring of un-melted wax along the outside of the container.
