Origin of the candles

These beautiful candles come from the K'iche' Mayan nation, and are produced by the wonderful Tata Mario. He is an Ajq'ij (Mayan spiritual leader) with decades of experience in healing people, who also produces holistic products and sells them in the K'iche' area of Guatemala. The local Ajq'ijab' (Mayan spiritual leaders) come to his store to buy products for their own spiritual practices such as fire ceremonies, cleansings, and more.


You can use these candles for your spiritual practices. Use a match or a lighter and expose the bottom of the candle to the fire for a few seconds, then steadily place on a flat surface. You can then light your candle and allow it to burn until it is fully consumed. 

Important Information

Size & pattern/color may not be exactly as presented in the images. They naturally sometimes come with small defects, such as bumpy parts, not perfectly flat bottoms, etc. However, nothing that should affect their spiritual effect or effectiveness at standing, burning, etc.

Time until arrival varies depending on your region. Expect around 7-10 business days (Asia: 10-15 business days).
