The makers of Crystal Journey candles say "All our candles are Vegan and Reiki charged We suggest that you always charge your candle before lighting it by using the affirmation supplied with the candle and then expand upon it based on your specific situation. Sit in a quiet place, hold the candle in your hands and visualize the area in your life you want changed. This will personalize your connection with the candle and allow the needed energy to come to you in a more direct manner. The staff at Crystal Journey Candles takes great pride in providing high quality products. We hope you enjoy our candles as much as we enjoy making them for you. All of our scented candles are hand crafted using the finest wax, lead-free materials, Reiki Charged, and an exotic blend of essential oils. The strong scent and colorful appearance of our candles are entrancing. We believe all of these factors create a better scented candle with a unique character." This candle is in a tin that measures 3.5" in diameter and 1.25" high. Small enough to use for travel, large enough to shed a nice light. The "Love candle affirmation is "May love enter my life and fill my heartand soul. May the magic of love always inspire me to radiate warmth and caring to all those who touch my life."
