Home Moment New Moon candle launch eclipses May Flower full moon

THE latest pure essential oil candle to be offered by Dublin chandlers Home Moment was launched on an auspicious night early this month (16 May), the night of the Irish Celtic May Flower full moon which coincided with a lunar eclipse.

The handmade New Moon candle of pure soy and essential oils including lavender, camphor and sage as well as vanilla and sandalwood when lit has been fragranced to set new intentions while ridding of what no longer serves. Intentions set from the beginning of each lunar month follow the moon’s phases, the new moon serving as a time for a fresh start while setting the tone for the next cycle.

“It’s a very subtle fragrance,” said co-founder Eileen Denham while leading of tour of the chandlers at D-Light Studios in Dublin Ireland. “We manufacture and pack all the candles. When you open the candle you are loved, so the positive affirmation (included card).

“We do tiny little wildflower bouquets and when you scan the (accompanying wildflower card) QR code you go to a beautiful nature soundscape. We encourage you to scan it (QR code), put the soundscape on and then light your candle and have your meditative experience, the ‘Home Moment’.”

Sound was very much a part of the full moon launch night, featuring a sound bath by @sonasounds. The New Moon candle’s seed card can be planted when the sustainable soy wax and essential oils candle has burned away.

“We are not just a product, we are an experience,” Eileen Denham explained. “As time goes on the experience such as sounds we had tonight will be transferred and recorded into an experience that you can access online when you purchase one of our candles. For us it’s the psychology of scent and then matching it into the experience.
