Burn time: approximately 14 hours
According to Ayurveda, gazing intently at the flame of a ghee candle in meditation, a practice called Trataka, helps purify and strengthen the eyes, improve concentration, invigorate the mind, and burn away impurities.
“Trataka eradicates all eye diseases, fatigue, and sloth, and closes the doorway creating these problems.” - Hatha Yoga Pradipika
This high-consciousness candle comes to us from our friends at farmtrue in North Stonington, CT. Made with only three ingredients (organic, humane-certified ghee, raw beeswax, and essential oil), you can gaze with ease at the beautiful flame without worrying about dispersing chemicals or artificial fragrance around your space. With a subtle and relaxing aroma, this candle is the perfect addition to your home, altar, or work space. A special crystal is embedded in each candle to capture the positive vibrations of your meditation so that you can carry them with you.
Disclaimer: Place on a heat resistant surface. Trim wick to ¼” before each use. Keep out of reach of children.

Place the lit candle about two feet in front of you (make sure the candle rests safely and securely). If possible, position the flame at eye level. Rest your gaze in the center of the flame and resist blinking or blurring your vision for as long as possible. Once your eyes start to tear (these tears carry impurities out of the body), close your eyes and find the impression of the image in your mind’s eye, at the ajna chakra, or third eye point between the eyebrows. Focus on your mind now on the impression of the flame, keeping it centered on the third eye space. Repeat until you feel complete.
Trim wick to ¼” before each use.
