homework x Joanna Ellner Yin Yang Candle Gift Set
At a time when the sands are ever shifting beneath our feet, the ancient rubric of yin and yang offers a stabilising lens through which to help view life. Centred on the belief that all things exist as two equal yet opposing parts; yin and yang has endured as the universal law of the living world for over eight thousand years.
In collaboration with renowned acupuncturist, Joanna Ellner, this timeless philosophy has been carefully poured into two limited edition candles to capture the notion of both yin and yang.
Yin – a soft, acquiescent, and deeply intimate energy, is illuminated through calming neroli, eucalyptus and rose over a backdrop of patchouli and cedarwood.
Yang – a vibrant, dynamic, buoyant, and lively spirit, is brought to life with a blend of bay leaf, mandarin, ho wood and vetiver.
“Each one of us is comprised of both yin and yang. The core intention of my work is to gently restore equilibrium, balancing our reserves of yin and yang, the mutually dependent twin energies that wax and wane like the tides. These scents artfully complement my work, offering a sensorial touchpoint to help recalibrate body and mind.”
We invite you to turn inward. Take inventory of what you need in this moment; the warm, restorative embrace of yin, or the abundant, cheering energy of yang. Light the candle of your choosing. Breathe.
A natural blend of coconut and soy wax, scented with natural essential oils and phthalate and paraben free fragrance oils. Finished off with a cotton wick.
Always allow the candle to burn for 3 hours or until the melt pool reaches the edge of the tin. Remember to trim the wick to 1cm before relighting. Do not leave the candle unattended.
Our signature steel tins are made using solar power energy, less than 5 miles from our studio in SE London.
