Candle Making

Candle making has been identified as one of the initiatives which are not only easy to start but it can also easily generate income especially for small and start up entrepreneurs. These candles will be made by members of the community who were victims of GBV and have come together as a support group to make a difference for their own lives and within the community they live in The candle-making project will not only empower the survivors financially but will also serve as therapy and healing for them.

BENEFITS OF CANDLES

Burning candles can be beneficial to your health. Part
of living a healthy lifestyle is self-care and taking care of your mind: lighting candles can provide the perfect atmosphere to induce calm and a sense of well-being. If you ever feel enveloped by fear or feel anxious, burning candles can help with anxiety

Lighting candles during meditation is a wonderful way to support your practice. There are many visualisation exercises and manifestation techniques that involve focusing on the flame of a burning candle while sending your intentions into the universe. Candles are also used during prayer

Our sense of smell is strongly tied with memory, so we often associate a specific scent with a moment or memory. One of the joys of selling candles is when our customers share memories as they smell our fragrances.

Therapeutic candles made with high quality essential oils can have a positive impact on our minds and bodies. As you burn a candle infused with essential oils, their aroma is released into your surroundings.

Not only is scent linked to memories, but also our mood as well. For example, lavender and rose creates a feeling of calmness, whereas citrus scents promote feelings of happiness and energy

Lighting a therapeutic candle can fill your room in a soft and calming, glow. The flickering & movement of the light emitted from your candle will help you drift off as your eyelids get heavier.
