Orange Blossom, Sweetgrass, Sandalwood, Sage wooden wick, soy wax Mason Jar Grounding candle.
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.

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.

Everyone in the US gets a deal on shipping with our all for one shipping cost of no more than $9.00! Whether you purchase 1 or 1001 items 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 Renewable Midwest Grown Soybeans.
We use only phthalate free fragrance oils and essential oil blends in our products.
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 is now the responsibility of the customer as USPS has changed their policies and requires the BUYER 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.**
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 and verified address.
We are not responsible for invalid addresses, forwarded mail or refused parcels and will not refund or pay return shipping.
Return postage will be calculated at our actual cost, not the discounted rate of $9.00 we offer on original purchases.
We will contact you via messages with a link to the shipping listing which will be active for 100 days.
After the 100 day period the listing will expire and the parcel contents will be donated to a local charity when appropriate.
We use products that may be made with nuts, dairy, soy, plant materials, essential oils and fragrances.
There is always the possibility for cross exposure within our studio/lab. People with sensitivities or allergies should consider avoiding scented and fragrances products.
Many of our item listings will include the focal scents/oils we use. We do not provide inclusive lists of our essentials oils used in all of our blends and formulas as many are proprietary (trade secrets) combinations specific to our brand.
The burn time for our candles varies based different variables, such as wax type. wick size, fragrance and type of vessel used. For smaller candles with smaller wicks, they burn an average 7-9 hours per ounce of wax. Larger candles may have large wicks which uses more wax to burn. They burn about 5-7 hours per ounce. Our speciality candles with beeswax blends may burn 7-9 hours per ounce, while our tea lights average 5-6 hours each.
Following our candle care and instruction guide will give you the best burn from each candle. Be sure to read and follow your candle care card included with your order.

This candle smells like it would be perfect for EVERY season. Reminds me of evergreen trees, but not in the Christmas-y way. It smells both feminine and masculine, summer and winter. Mind blown. The orange blossom really pulls through. I don't get much "wood" notes, but it's also not overly floral. If I walked in and someone's house smelled like this I would assume they they have a million house plants and they clean their house everyday and they are one of those super nice/humble/ grounded people lol. It just smells so clean but relaxing! It has a decent throw, enough for a small room.. I am now considering buying multiple so my entire house smells like this because I'm obsessed. This and the coconut cream lavender are my favorite so far.
