“Beautiful Gaia, mother of might,
Mother of all things,
Mother of Gods and giants,
Mother of creation
And of destruction.
From formless chaos you arose,
In the time before time
You took your ease, O Gaia.
You brought forth the shining ski
To be your love,
To father your wonderous children,
Gaia, mother of Titans,
Mother of those called monster,
All are yours,
All are love,
All are precious to you.
I praise you, goddess,
For all you are,
For all you have given,
For the love you bear,
For all who call you mother.”
"Let us give thanks for the world around us.
Thanks for all the creatures, stones and plants
Let us learn their lessons and seek their truths,
So that their path might be ours,
And we might live in harmony, a better life.
May the Earth continue to live,
May the rain continues to dampen the land,
May the wet forests continue to grown
Then the flowers shall bloom
And we people shall live again.”

Candle Care Tips
Gems may fall towards wick once a large melt pool starts, if this happens just push it back towards the edge so it can burn properly or remove and enjoy your stone sooner. Once your candle is burned down your stone can be washed with soap and warm water to keep.
The first time you light your candle, you MUST let it burn for at LEAST 2 hours! The idea is to create a wax pool that reaches the sides of the candle to achieve an even burn every time it is lit. Burning for less time creates a tunnel that can lead to your candle putting itself out constantly and essentially rendering the candle useless.
Place candles in flameproof jars or cups to double the burn time. Always trim the wick before burning. Even if you’re relighting a candle, trim the wick to 1/4 inch. When the wick is too long it will burn uneven and create soot/smoke.
Keep candles away from direct sunlight. Candles in direct sunlight will lose their colour.
Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle. Always snuff out your spell candles as blowing (using the element Air) will undo all your hard work.
Extinguish any candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep ensuring the wick ember is no longer glowing.
Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
Always use a candle holder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting.
Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.
Place burning candles at least 6 cm apart from one another. This helps ensure they don’t melt each other, or create their own drafts that cause improper burning.
Never extinguish candles with water. The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and can cause glass containers to break.
Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, trim the wick to 1/4 inch, then check for drafts before relighting.
Special care should be taken when burning spell candles that contain herbs. Always remove any labels, ribbons, adornments, make sure the candles not near burnable material and dust off any herbs/resins around the wick of the candle before lighting.
Do not leave burning candles unattended as they contain dried herbs and crystals. Keep candles away from pets and children and from anything flammable.
