Our Joshua Tree Grounding candle line is made with the intention of assisting with spiritual and soulful grounding.
What is spiritual grounding?
Spiritual grounding means having a solid spiritual connection to Mother Earth. Because all humans are forms or beings of energy, it is our natural tendency to drift or float on other currents. This is a problem when it becomes more of a constant. Now, drifting or floating around may sound like a lot of fun, it can be very distracting and disruptive. Not being grounded, or being ungrounded can have some rather nasty side effects including, inattention, inability to focus, sleep disturbance, anxiety and even physical symptoms from headaches to exhaustion.
Grounding is a process where you establish a deep connection with the earth. Classic grounding is performed by being barefoot on the earth, visualizing roots growing from your heart to deep within the earth. This isn't always practical due to weather, location and your own personal health. There are many ways to do this, without going outside in a snow storm barefooted and having the neighbor think you've cracked up.
Here is my way for those times I can't stand with my feet in the grass:
Start in a cleansed space – You can do this by smudging or simply mopping your floors. See our blog on smudging
Make time - If you are a busy birth or earth Momma you may need to set time aside just before bed or soon after waking, when the rest of the home is asleep or occupied. Be sure to leave enough time to complete this process (you will find your time needed, mine is around 15 minutes)
Ambiance- Light your The Joshua Tree candle and if desired play music that invokes nature for you.
Get yourself comfortable – Sit or lie down in a comfortable position, pajamas, work clothes, yoga pants or no pants, you decide.
Close your eyes- Visualize yourself in your happy place close to the Earth.
Relax- Take some deep, slow breaths, in through your nose and slowly out your mouth, feel your chest rise and fall and start to imagine a seed growing in your chest.
Feet – If you are standing or sitting where you can place your bare feet on the floor do so.
Sitting- If sitting is better for you, do that, the closer to the ground the better.
Visualize your grounding – This is where your inner Hippie gets to shine. Remember that seed I told you to plant earlier, the one in your chest? Let that baby start growing. It grows strong and wild from your chest through your stomach, down your root chakra (booty) into the earth if you are sitting. If you are standing, it grows down your legs, out your feet and deep into the earth.
These roots and strong and deep, just like those of the Joshua Tree himself. Let the rotes grow wide and deep for as long as you need to imagine yourself fully grounded with the Earth.
Remain in this state until you feel that no storm you face will move you. You are grounded, solid and strong, you thrive in in climate weather, storms don't phase you, climate is no matter and you are one with the earth.
Practice this daily (if you have time), develop a quick session for those emergency times when others' energies are shaking you... and above all, teach others this skill.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

If lighting seems difficult, the wick is too far above the surface of the wax when the candle is initially lit. Always light at the wax level, not the top of the wick.
Solution: Make sure the wick is trimmed to be no longer than 1/8” – 3/16” / 6.4mm – 4.8mm above the wax. This seems counterintuitive, as we think a longer wick will make a larger flame, but it will not. The longer the wick, the harder it is for the wax to flow up to the top.
(The Wooden Wick patented wood wick company).
We do not offer wholesale. Our candles are priced at wholesale price points to allow our customers the simple luxury of our candles for everyday use.
Everyone gets a deal on shipping with our "Bottomless Box" shipping cost of $8.00 (candles) and $6.00 (skin care). Whether you purchase 1 or 101 your cost doesn't change!
Now let’s talk about wax. Unless you are eating your candles (which you shouldn’t be) you don’t need to worry about them being produced with “Organic Soy wax”. This is good because organic soy wax doesn’t exist.
The process of converting the oil into a wax itself renders the wax ineligible for organic certification. Even if a manufacture used the 5-9% of soybeans grown in the USA that are Organic Bean, the process itself makes them not organic.
Should you worry about this? The simple answer is no, soy wax is safe.
You should worry about a company that claims their soy candles are organic.
We use wax made with only Midwest Grown Soybeans.
We use only phthalate free fragrance oils and essential oil blends in our products.
The shipping cost for one candle to return it to us averages $10, the initial shipping was $8 making it cost prohibitive for customers to return an item for a refund. We can't return it to inventory for safety reasons and can’t refund postage making it cost prohibitive for us.
We always suggest starting with the smallest size offered on new products to ensure you love it before adding the larger size to your space.
We always strive to ensure the satisfaction of our beloved customers. If you have received a damaged item we will help you file your claim with USPS, if you received the incorrect item we will replace it as soon as possible.
We are happy to assist you with filing a claim with USPS if you received a damaged item or your package is lost.
FILING CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES/LOSS is now the responsibility of the customer as USPS has changed their policies and often requires the recipient to present the damaged package along with proof of payment from your financial institute (all things we do not have).
Note: You must create an account with the USPS if you don’t already have one.
***When filing a claim with USPS, the damaged article, container, packaging, and any other items received must be presented to the Postal Service for inspection along with proof of payment from your financial institution. Be certain to safely save the entire box, label and all the contents.**
USPS, UPS and FedEx are predicting critical demand again this year (Oct 3-December 31), there is the possibility your packages will not arrive in time for your holiday.
We provide tracking numbers on your invoice as soon as we package your order and print your label. Your order will be picked up by the next business day after we package.
Please use your tracking number to check on your shipment, as we can’t possibly respond to all the tracking and shipping questions during the holidays.
Packages received back to us as RTS (Return to Sender) may be resent at your request by purchasing a postage listing customized for your parcel.
We are not responsible for invalid addresses, forwarded mail or refused parcels and will not refund or pay return shipping.
We will contact you via messages with a link to the shipping listing which will be active for 30 days.
Please see our heat advisory at the beginning of each listing as high temps (80 degrees +) can cause melting, settling(may appear less full) and thinning of lotions. Please only purchase if this is a risk you are willing to take. We do have express shipping offered to help prevent heat damage in shipping.

This candle smells amazing! And I love the wood wick. It came with instructions on how to best burn it and even a bonus tiny candle. I really appreciate that and the written thank you. Those little touches make it feel more personal. Which is why I like supporting individuals creators on Etsy when possible! Thanks for making my home smell amazing!

This candle is a reorder for me. This scent is absolutely beautiful, I would LOVE a lotion/perfume in this scent!!! Random note, I got my therapist hooked on these candles a while back and this morning in our session I was like “guess what I have coming today!!”. She said the rest of the office is hooked and now whichever scents we are burning is always a topic…lmao!!! These are the best candles ever!!!
