The Zen candles are a unique creation. The outer crust of these candles is made of sand and each candle takes on a different texture and new look. When the candle is burnt out, the sand crust remains intact and can be used as a diffuser. The light that shines through the natural sand is simply beautiful. The Zen scented candles, when lighted, create a peaceful environment and are effectively used as an aid to meditation. Their pleasing aroma elevates our spirits, sanctifies the air around us and calms our senses. The highest quality of essential oils are used in the manufacture of these Zen candles.
