Happy Saturday! Have you grabbed your handmade Rainbow Chakra Sage bundles from @thehealinggem ? 💛🧡❤💚💙💜 remember to support the original artist and not those who are reselling as their own handmade bundles (cutting out photo watermarks 🥴) without crediting the beautiful person who made them with love, care and intention 🥰 transparency is everything as a business as the Moonlight fam is aware ❤

I’m still working on the Fly Agaric piece but will post a photo of it once it’s completely finished. In the meantime I’ve got a new and slightly special piece to show you guys! It’s taken a while but it been fun to stitch some flowers for a change! 🌷
☆☆☆ Fun Friday ☆☆☆
I'd love to know how you wind down at the weekends. I love to spend time with my girls and the hubby, going on days out or chilling at home with a good film and a cuppa! 📸 Credit to the fabulous @photographybyjessicailiffe who was snapping away at the #mibaleicestershiresummerevent2019 last week. She very generously did photo sessions with all the families and I hope you'll agree she has done a great job 😍
Soy candles enhance the places we live and celebrate in. For you to enjoy the very best of what your new soy candle has to offer we’ve got some tips for you.
CARING FOR YOUR SOY CANDLE’ TIPS
Always burn your soy candles for at least 1 hour at a time (commit to your candle). This helps to prevent tunnelling. The first time you light your soy candle always let the wax melt all the way to the edge of the vessel.
Do not burn your soy candles for longer than 3 hours at a time (have second one on hand to pop out). Don’t burn soy candles all the way down to the bottom. Stop using the candle when 1cm of wax remains in the bottom. Burning to the bottom may cause the container to break and other damage.
Always burn soy candles on a surface that is heat proof.
Burn your soy candles in a draft free area clear of curtains, books, baskets, clothing, vents and ceiling fans etc.
Keep soy candles out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources.
Allow soy candles to cool and harden before relighting them (even candles need a rest). Store candles in a cool dry place. Definitely not in the freezer or a hot car.
Soy candles can be cleaned by washing them gently in cool water (nice little secret that one). Allow to air dry before use.
Keep the burn pool clean (no half used matches please). CARING FOR THE WICK
Before each use, trim your wick to 5-6mm in length and make sure it’s upright. If your wick is too long it will create black smoke, wick mushrooming and the candle will burn too quickly (insert shock expression). Avoid cutting the wick too short as this will create problems with burning and create the dreaded candle tunnel (all you candle lovers know what I mean). Before relighting your candle always trim the mushroom or little ball off the top of the wick to keep your candle burning gently. (Wick trimmers are awesome to catch that little black bit)
Cut the wick only when the wax has hardened.
To prep your candle for the next burn extinguish it by dunking the wick into it’s own pool of wax using
