Create your own ZEN space

Whether you frequently meditate, are an avid yogi, or maybe just like to balance the energy of your home, it's all about creating the perfect ZEN space! We all know that it can definitely be difficult to create relaxation and tranquility in the home with everyone's day to day schedules -- but creating a peace haven in your home really doesn't have to be that complicated. Here's how: 

Section off an area of your home that is just for relaxation. Use this area for daily meditation, yoga practice or wind down time with a good book. Zen is purity and simplicity so when creating your space stick with the five senses: sight, touch, scent, sound, and taste. Surround yourself with your comfort items. Perhaps you're a tea aficionado or you love the sound of falling water, include these things in your space. We've chosen Mala beads for touch, tea for taste, Budha for sight, fresh greenery for natural calmness and three of our recommended aromatherapy candles for scent. 

Freshome.com also recommends to eliminate clutter, remove electronic disturbances, stick to neutral and earthy colors, and add plants to bring more natural to the home. Looking for more aromatherapy & zen inspiration? Follow us on Instagram and Twitter at @ThePureCandle. 

Finding Your Inner Peace

Have you ever been at a point in your life when you felt that your heart could never heal again? As human beings, we’ve all harvested feelings of anger, resentment, guilt and anxiety. We can all say that we’ve had our lows. Those points when you wonder if you will ever find inner peace and love again. But the magical part of life and spirituality is that we rebuild, we grow, and we renew our souls continuously. Somehow, someway, we find the strength we need to keep our hearts open and find peace within ourselves to carry on.

Today we’re digging deeper with our weekly post because we want to share our tips to manifestation, particularly with life’s favored quality: Peace. You may think that attracting qualities into your life and utterly changing how you receive everything is, well, impossible. But it’s not! Rebuilding your spirit is a process but finding your inner peace again is worth it all. As little reminders of what we want more of, we always display our PEACE candle in a prominent place in our home. Begin your manifestation with reflection. Sit in silence and reflect on your life’s biggest challenges.

Reflect. To really conquer negative feelings, recall the situations in your life that have caused you the most stress or anger. At this point, imagine how you would do things differently to prevent negative feelings from occurring. Do not focus on what someone has done to you – but instead focus on how you may have brought a situation on yourself and how you can adjust to keep your peace. Only when you can conquer how you can improve as a person will you truly begin to rebuild in strength. Reflection is important process in harvesting and controlling emotions, it allows you to grow.

Visualize. During your meditation process, usually after your reflection, begin visualization to manifest your inner peace. Select a few of your most peaceful scenes in life, whether it be on a beach, at a cottage by the river or in a tropical forest. They can be scenes that existed in your life, or entirely made up. The important part of visualization is that you allow your mind and body to be entirely still and at peace, but also to refer to your “peaceful place” during future situations of stress. While visualizing, focus on sound and scent. Using your other senses will distract the mind from thought. The PEACE candle was created precisely for this purpose. Made with the luxurious essential oils clary sage and Canadian white spruce, the scent of the candle allows your mind to be strengthened, remaining serene and harmonious.

Renew. Renewing your spirit and filling your heart with peace is the final stage in manifestation. Your goal is to envision the person you want to be. Thoroughly decide how you want to react to situations and learn to be present in each moment. You are renewing yourself to become a peaceful and gentle person. A quote we frequently refer to helps set the bar for a worriless life:

Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things, but still be calm in your heart.

This is the ultimate affirmation for attracting peace into your life. Remembering that you cannot control situations in your life – but you can control your reaction, is the key. You decide how you use your energy. 

I am at peace with where I am, where I am going and what has been. I choose to change my life to match my dreams and desires and take action from my still, wise center.

Meditating with Intention Candles

Peace. Prosperity. Health. Love. Clarity. These qualities all describe what we want more of in life. But what if you can have all of this just by meditating? While the well-known Law of Attraction originally inspired our Intentions Collection, meditation invokes our practice. Manifesting the life you want is just as simple as setting your intentions and visualizing yourself with your particular desire. We’ve found visualization to be most successful during meditation.

Every day, after coffee has been made and the morning rush dies down and before even diving into the day’s tasks, I set aside time for meditation. I select an Intention for the day, typically Peace or Health, my personal preferences. I light my Peace candle and turn on the soundtrack “Meditation by the Sea” and situate myself in the Sunroom, my favorite room in the house. I let the morning sun in and begin my visualization.

When attracting peace with the Intentions candle, I let the room fill with the scent of essential oils patchouli, white spruce and sage and allow my mind to drift to my serene place. To bring peace to my day, I meditate while visualizing myself in a calm and harmonious setting, usually sitting near a waterfall or lake. I embrace the sounds of the waters and allow peace to become the setting for my day.

Once a visualization is set, I allow my mind to go completely blank by focusing on my breathing, scent and physical feeling. I direct my attention to the scent of the candle, the warm sun filling the room and embrace my other senses aside from thought, allowing my mind to clear while remaining entirely peaceful.

Though I typically set Peace as my intention while using the candle for meditation, you can set so many other intentions for your day though meditation. For example, if you would like to attract more Health into your life, begin your visualization with an image of yourself manifesting strength and wellbeing. If I am attracting Health into my life, I will meditate and visualize myself hiking, canoeing or engaging in a strenuous physical activity that would require great health.

Enjoy the entire Intentions Collection for your Meditation practice, including Intentions Love, Prosperity, Health, Clarity, Healing, Peace, Joy, Inspiration and Gratitude.

Harvesting Gratitude


Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers, we more than gain in fruits.
— —Samuel Butler

Nothing tips us off to “new beginnings” quite like the approach of Fall.  The long, hot, adventurous days of summer disappear as children go back to school, temperatures drop, leaves start turning, and most importantly, everyday routines begin to shift.  And as our schedules get hectic and our lives become complicated, we catch ourselves wallowing in misery and focusing on what we do not have enough of: time, money, space.  Instead, let’s shift our thought process, and think about the smallest things we are grateful for.

Gratitude is the embrace and appreciation of life’s simplest pleasures. For some, it is the rustle of leaves, the snuggle of a pet, the laughter of children.  And for me, it’s fitting to say that I simply welcome everything autumn has to offer—it is my absolute favorite season. Temperatures drop, apple orchards are fruitful, grapes are sweeter, ocean waves crash, beach bonfires are abundant, and a certain sweet petrichor lingers through the air.

That earthy, comforting scent that I so love about Fall is perfectly captured by The Pure Candle in their GRATITUDE Soy Aromatherapy Candle, which evokes a woodsy sense of warmth. The GRATITUDE candle has pure essential oils of rosewood and white spruce, which when warmed, fill the room with a grounding, forest-like aroma.

GRATITUDE not only smells great, but also serves as a simple reminder to be grateful for life’s many joys.  Lighting it for a few minutes every day not only perfumes the home, but also allows you to take time to acknowledge and appreciate your blessings. It is a sure way to be thankful for the bounty that us upon us, and experience more happiness by focusing on the positive.

And with a name like GRATITUDE, I feel like this candle would make the perfect gift.  Bring it to a dinner party, to thank the host or hostess for having you.  Give it to a friend, partner, or family member to celebrate their birthday, or simply because they’re awesome. Give it to the neighbor who looks after your home when you’re away, gift it to a mentor to thank them for all of their advice and encouragement.  The GRATITUDE candle is perfect for anyone you appreciate.

Also, with Thanksgiving quickly approaching, this candle will not only smell beautiful, but it will remind us that the holiday is not simply about turkey and football, but also about GRATITUDE, and savoring the simple pleasures of life. Its clean, white lines and classic glass jar, would be lovely blended into any table setting, regardless of decorating style. The soy candles have a cotton wick, and are make entirely with plant-based ingredients, so toxins and other carcinogens are not emitted in the smoke.

Lighting aromatic candles is a great way to change your mood, de-stress, perfume your home, and appreciate life’s little pleasures.
