BEESWAX CANDLES AND BUDDHAS. AND FISHTAIL BRAIDS.

When we enter the fall time there's always candles burning in our house. Candles set the mood and makes us all cozy up bu the fireplace eating hearty stews and other comfort foods. Few weeks ago me and the Mr. went to visit the Bear Mountain Oktober Fest and after having some beers and waffles went for some shopping. There were many great local vendors that offered different kind of crafts such as jewelry, clothing,. Beeswax candles offer a honey scent, a golden flame, and the longest, cleanest burn of any candle. But there is much more benefit to beeswax candles compared to paraffin candles that are made from polluted petroleum sludge, or even vegetable-based candles that are a big improvement over paraffin: When beeswax candles burn, they clean the air like a great, natural, air purifier, and they are a link to a deep spiritual belief system.
To burn a beeswax candle is to enter into the wisdom world of the bee, and you enter, too, into a world of benefits from the bee. Compare this to breathing toxic fumes from paraffin candles! Air contains billions of electrically charged particles called ions. Ions act upon our capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen, and therefore cause powerful effects on our lives and well being. The ions in the air can affect our mood, energy and health. Negative ions actually feel good. Too many positive ions make us feel bad and they are loaded down with pollution and allergens that are drawn to them and suspended in the air. Negative ions, on the other hand, remove the pollution and allergens from positive ions, allowing them to drop harmlessly to the ground. Beeswax candle fuel is the only fuel that actually produces negative ions, which not only helps remove pollution from the air but increases the ratio of negative ions to positive ions, the ideal and necessary scenario for clean air.

From one subject to another. I love fishtail braids and know that it's very simple to do, but never took the time to learn it. A friend recommended this instructional video which is actually quite brilliant. Fishtail braid is easy! I knew it! Guess what's going to be my hairdo for this fall and winter? Yup, it's on.
 Have a beautiful day!

  1. When I went to India I bought a candles like that one, but my mother made me put them into the wastebasket because of the fact Buddha doesn't exist in her religion (what a stupid shit).
