Myrrh was burned to Ra at noon in ancient Egypt. It was fumed in the temples of Isis and is one of the gifts the wise men gave to the Christ child. When burned, Myrrh purifies the area, lifts the vibrations and creates peace.
Throughout the ages bees wax has been the preferred wax for candles. It's relatively high melting temperature, faint aromatic scent and rich golden glow make for a superior candle. Bees wax will naturally develop a soft white powder on its surface if left unused for a time. This is known as the 'bloom' and can be removed by polishing with a soft cloth. The wick is a directional wick, meant to be burned from a patritular end. With a pair of candles strung together the wick is necessarily upside down in one. Occasionally a ball of soot will develop on the end of the upsdie down wick, this should be trimmed off if it does. These candles will drip, burn in the appropriate holder.
