This hand-poured, knot-shaped candle is made using pure beeswax from Nova Scotia and 100% cotton wicks.
Many things could be said about the symbolism of knots and the number for but for Horsman's Hearth, This votive calls to mind the knot work of the Celts and the symbolism through the interwoven threads of perpetual motion and development. To tie a knot is to constrain, or to ground, or to punctuate your intent and in contrast to that; to undo a knot is to release or clear the way forward.
The knot votive has no intent placed on it other than the attention paid to its form. Burn The knot when there is a need to refocus on your movement forward.
- Burn time: ~ 4 hours
- Size: ~ 2.5" tapering to 1.25" x 1.75"
Please note that these candles have the honey-sweet scent natural to beeswax and are handcrafted items; no two are alike in appearance.
*Candle Safety Tips*
Always make sure to trim your wick to wick to 0.25" before starting to burn. Never leave a candle burning unattended or near a draft, vent or air current. Never burn a candle near a pet, child or on/near something that might catch fire. Never touch or move a candle while it is burning. If burning more than one candle at the same time, make sure you space out your candles at least 3 inches apart. Never burn your candle longer than 4 hours and never burn them all the way to the bottom.
Horsman’s Hearth is passionate about the thoughtful creation of products that celebrate nature, one’s sense of place and the spiritual connection if nurtured that can happen between them. Following a move to a rural community along the South Shore of Nova Scotia in 2018, it was as though crafter Veronica Goodfellow could think of nothing else.
For the next couple of years, Goodfellow worked in her community and saw the fulfilling, supportive relationships small businesses formed with one another to provide for the community at large. So in March of 2021 with that philosophy in mind, she decided to add her own approach into the mix, and the Horsman’s Hearth fire was officially lit.
Horsman's Hearth strives to impart the energies found in the heart of nature (those of abundance, harmony and protection) through the intentional choice of materials and slow craft, to help set the mood both physically and metaphysically; when you are in a space of comfort and as you take time for yourself.
