The heart chakra, or anahata chakra in Sanskrit, is located at the center of the spine at heart level. Anahata roughly translates to, “unhurt.” Accordingly, the heart chakra acts as the individual’s center of compassion, empathy, love, and forgiveness. This chakra governs one’s senses of trust, fearlessness, peace, generosity, gratitude, and connectedness, as well as change and transformation, healthy boundaries, depth in relationships with others, emotional control, and love for oneself.

Wood wick candles
Most of us are familiar with cotton wicked candles but the crackling of a wood wick candle can create an oh-so-soothing ambiance. But a wood wick requires a little extra care when it comes to getting your candle lit and keeping it lit!
Lighting a wood wick The soy/coconut wax of your candle is what fuels the flame and keeps it burning. It's best to light your candle from the base of the wood wick and not from the top like you would with a cotton wick. Once lit, the heat of the flame will draw the soy wax through the wick and fuel the flame.
Pro tip: when lighting your wood wicked candle hold your candle on an angle to best reach the base of the wood wick and remember it may take several attempts to get it lit.
Keeping it lit Just like a candle with a cotton wick, the first burn is the most important to prevent your candle from tunnelling. On the first burn, allow your candle to fully melt to the edges of the jar for a clean and even burn as you continue to enjoy your candle.
Did you know soy/coconut wax has a memory? If a “memory ring” develops because the wax did not melt to the edges of the container it can tunnel this way for the life of the candle. So be sure to commit to the first burn of your candle and get cozy, grab a soothing drink, open a book and relax in the flickering light of that flame for a couple of hours.
Keep it trim For a wood wick, you'll want to keep the wick trimmed a bit shorter than your cotton wicked candles. Between burns trim the wick to about ⅛” and clean away any burnt wood from its previous burn.
