The Gift of Handcrafted Healing Candles by Jonna Rae Bartges

Handcrafted Healing Candles

One of our most popular artisans, Jonna Rae is well-known for her creative line of handcrafted scented candles.

Her Healing White Light Affirmation Candles are crafted by hand, right here in the Blue Ridge Mountain of North Carolina. They are made from 100% pure soy wax with an easy to light paper and cotton wick.

And each candle is infused with Reiki healing energy, essential oils and natural fragrances. They are poured into a food-grade glass container with a air tight lid and comes with an affirmation card. Each candle depending on size can burn anywhere from 20 to 60 hours.

Jonna Rae, says about her candles, “As a Reiki Master Teacher, I wanted to use Reiki healing energy in a way that made scents.”

“I came up with the idea of stirring Reiki symbols into melted pure soy wax, adding [aromatic] essential oils and phthalate-free natural fragrances. I finally created Healing White Light Affirmation Candles that soothe body, mind, emotions and spirit.”

Reiki is a holistic healing practice that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. The word “Reiki” is composed of two Japanese words: “rei,” which means “universal,” and “ki,” which means “life energy” or “vital force.”

Reiki practitioners like Jonna Rae believe that there is a universal life force energy that flows through all living things, and that when this energy is blocked or depleted, it can lead to physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances or illness.

While is Reiki is not a scientifically proven therapy, many people who have received Reiki treatments report feeling relaxed, less stressed, and more energized.

And some studies have suggested that Reiki healing techniques may be helpful in:

  • reducing pain,
  • anxiety,
  • and improving moods

Not to mention it is not uncommon for people to use aromatherapy in conjunction with Reiki treatments to enhance relaxation.

Jonna Rae’s candles have uncommon fragrance blends such as

  • “Frankincense, Gold & Myrrh”,
  • “Spice Jar”,
  • “Amber Vanilla”
  • and “Cypress and Bayberry”

She goes on to say, “When I’m not making Healing White Light Affirmation Candles, I’m teaching classes in Reiki, working on my next writing project or exploring the winding mountain trails with friends and my dog Obi-Wan”.
