I love noticing and marking, in simple ways, the solstice and equinox points of the year. The summer solstice, on 21st June, is the midpoint of the solar calendar, for some the real beginning of summer. Also known as Litha, it’s the day with the most daylight hours and the shortest night, a time of change and growth and abundance.
Choosing the right candle size is as important as choosing the right scent. You don’t want to be overwhelmed with the aroma, nor be disappointed that it’s failed to fill the space you wanted it to. Also, there’s nothing worse than a candle that doesn’t burn for as long as you’re hoping.
