Clarity is sexy - Vata Dosha votive candle

Thanks, we'll email you when this product is back in stock.

Sweet Orange calms. Cardamom warms. Basil + Vetiver clear your mind. You can think of this Ayurvedic blend as a sacred grounding rod. Vata energy governs the elements of Air (wind) + Ether (space) and too much Vata can get…swirly. So this Vata balancing is about rooting into your senses and mental faculties. And you know, clarity is sexy.

As always: 100% pure essential oils in an Ayurvedic blend. Soy wax burns foreverrrr (or at least 17 hours). Your lungs and Mother Earth will thank you, your house guests will just go ahhhh. The packaging is ART, designed for your reuse. And remember: It only takes a second to make a wish, send a blessing, whisper a prayer. Strike the match and make it matter.

Note: These are 100% all natural soy wax candles with essential oils. This means no additives, no hardeners. It makes our candles unique, and it makes them more vulnerable to temperature changes. Candles may experience slight melting and re-hardening in transit. It is perfectly fine! 

So light it up and enjoy the aroma of our pure essential oils. Oh so good!

Why Soy Wax Candles?

CLEAN BURNING – Soy wax is non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and burns cleaner than paraffin, with no petrol-carbon soot which can blacken walls, ceilings, and furniture, contaminate ventilation ductwork in your home, as well as add toxic carcinogens into the air you breathe. Soy wax is water soluble which means easy soap and water clean up.

LONG BURNING – Soy candles burn slower and cooler than paraffin wax.

RENEWABLE RESOURCE – Soybeans are a renewable source, unlike paraffin, which consists of petroleum.

BIODEGRADABLE – Since soybeans are vegetables, soy wax (basically made from hydrogenated soybean oil) is naturally biodegradable. Soy wax is also easier to remove from materials and other surfaces than paraffin wax.

Why not Paraffin Wax Candles?

There are three main reasons for not using petroleum (paraffin) products:

  1. Petroleum smoke/exhaust contains many carcinogenic toxins and produces ugly black soot.
  2. Petroleum is not a renewable resource. Burning petroleum products creates air pollution.
  3. Paraffin candles contain up to 11 carcinogenic compounds.

What is your dosha?

Each dosha contains aspects of all the five elements — ether, air, fire, water and earth — in varying degrees. Which dosha or combination of doshas are you? Read the descriptions below, and identify yours.

KAPHA

Elements: Kapha is a combination of the elements Water and Earth. Kapha reflects the qualities of those elements such as heavy, cold, wet, slow, steady, soft, sweet, thick, oily and smooth. Think of Kapha as cohesive, literally giving shape, density, form and structure to the body.

Characteristics: The Kapha dosha is responsible for mental functions like memory, serenity, faith, forgiveness, devotion, and emotions like love, affection, calmness, patience, sympathy, attachment, depression, greed and lethargy. Kapha provides the function of growth, development, stability, lubrication, and storage within the body.

Indications & Balance: Those with predominant Kapha are susceptible to weight gain, respiratory congestion, depression, and oversleeping. Kapha is aggravated by sweet, sour, and salty tastes, cold, damp climates, excessive sleep, and lack of stimulating exercise. The tastes of bitter, pungent (spicy), and astringent balances Kapha, along with energetic activities, dry heat, invigorating scents, and energizing teas and spices to maintain their profound stamina and generous spirit.

VATA

Elements: Vata contains the elements of Air (wind) and Ether (Space). The qualities characterizing Vata reflect its elements. These are dry, cold, light, quick, rough, subtle, astringent and mobile.

Characteristics: Vata dosha is responsible for mental functions like intuition, creativity, imagination, sensitivity, spontaneity, indecisiveness and emotions like exhilaration, fear, anxiety and doubt. Vata makes possible all the communication and movement within the body and mind. Think about the amazing activities within the body like the pumping action of the heart, breathing of the lungs, elimination of wastes, expression of speech and mobility of the bones, muscles and joints. It makes sense that without Vata the other dosha are inactive.

Indications & Balance: Those with predominant Vata are susceptible to nervous/anxiety disorders, insomnia, constipation, dryness of skin and cold temperatures. Vata is aggravated by astringent, bitter and pungent flavors, by excess wind and cold as well as irregular routines, dry, light foods and lack of sleep. Vata is pacified by sweet, sour and salty tastes and by the qualities of warmth, moisture and regularity, soothing scents, and warming teas and spices to maintain their balance and inspire their vitality.

PITTA

Elements: Pitta is made up of the elements of Fire and Water. Pitta qualities reflect those of its elements. They are hot, moist, light, fluid, sour, pungent, sharp and penetrating (intense). Pitta, like fire, is transformative. The water aspect of Pitta keeps its fire element from destruction.

Characteristics: Pitta is responsible for mental functions like confidence, ambition, focus, intelligence, and emotions like joy, excitement, courage, anger, jealousy and aggression. The Pitta fire is what transforms food to nutrients and sensory input to understanding and intelligent action. Pitta is responsible for digestion, absorption, assimilation, and all metabolic transformation going on in the body as well as the mind. It also regulates the complexion and visual perception.

Indications & Balance: Those with predominant Pitta are susceptible to skin conditions, heartburn, diarrhea, irritability, anger and overheating. Pitta types are aggravated by sour, pungent and salty flavors, excess heat, skipping meals, repressed emotions and hot, damp climates. They need the opposite tastes of bitter, sweet and astringent, and cool, dry, calm and sweet qualities, calming scents, and cooling teas and spices in order to maintain their sharp intelligence and vibrancy.

TRIDOSHIC

Tridosha is an equal combination of the three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. This is a very rare constitutional type and contains the balance of all attributes.

Characteristics: Remember that no matter what your body type, every person contains the elemental forces of all the three doshas in varying degrees. It is the many different combinations that we encompass which makes us unique in our relationship to the whole and defines our role in the play of life.
