Heart Chakra Copper Tea Light Meditation and Intentions Session

Surprisingly enough, I have never heard of the adorable and completely open Lee From America. I was introduced to her by my Mother-in-Law saying I would just adore her and what a down to earth, free spirit she is. Well, she was 100% spot on. Lee From America, hello from your most recent follower and let me start by saying, thank you for sharing. Stalking her IG page and seeing where her next event might be (none on the docket as of yet), I quickly caught on to a constant monthly theme of hers, setting intentions. Having delved into the surface of full moon ceremonies, crystals and taming their energies, essential oils and how they can help with healing, I was aware with every new moon, you are supposed to set your intentions. I always assumed there needed to be some deep, spiritual passage of intentions and I would get lost in thought trying to dig down and figure out what my "intentions" were to be until the next full moon. Usually frustrated and more confused than when I sat down, I would circle back to the same comfortable intentions I had set the new moon prior because I felt I could perform better at those intentions this month too. Lee sketched it out point blank - setting intentions can range anywhere from the consistent practice of mindfulness to getting your butt up and gift your body the healthy and loving reward of movement. With a clear vision of the scope of intentions to reflect on, I set out to have my own intention setting session.

Chakra Candles by Charlie Bax have been in the works/on pause for unfortunately far too long. I truly believe with the recent powers of the blood, blue and lunar eclipse there have been some electrifying energy shifts in the air and in our spirits and the Chakra Candles were calling my name. First born, the Heart Chakra Copper Tea Light.

Chakra - In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body.

Heart Chakra - The heart stands at the center of all energies and unifies our being as a whole. It is the point around which all the energies turn. A discord or imbalance in the heart chakra will adversely effect all the other centers. A clearing of the heart chakra will improve the interaction of all the other centers. It is important to maintain a balance to all the energy centers so a healthy level of awareness is manifested in our everyday lives.

Rose Quartz - Speaks directly to the heart chakra dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments and circulates a divine, loving energy.

Scented with the Healing Essential Oils of - Rose, Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Tangerine, Jasmine and Lavender.

Healing Properties of Copper - As a conductor of energy, when used with earthly crystals it intensifies, enhances and channels their properties. Along with assisting the body with repairing tissues, oxygenating the blood, easing arthritis, strengthening the female reproductive system and increasing vitality.

Meditation Intentions Session

First, I cleansed my Heart Chakra Copper Tea Light and space with sage. I then used some of the base essential oils from the Heart Chakra Candle such as Lavender, Tangerine and Grapefruit on my wrists to enhance creative thinking and heart healing. I then lit up a heavy Indica of Gorilla Glue 4 from my friends over at The H.I.T. Habitat to relax my body and mind and focus on what my heart and head were saying to me. Lighting my Heart Chakra Candle was the last step in preparation as I sat down and let the intentions flow freely using the worst colored pencils I've ever used, trying to relay my thoughts to paper.

Acting as what I would consider my first successful intentions setting session, I'd say the added elements of the Heart Chakra Copper Tea Light, the essential oils applied on my pressure points and the relaxed state of the THC helped it all come to fruition.

Safe Chews for Dogs to Help Save Dogs Lives

Los Angeles based, boutique medical marijuana cultivators The H.I.T. Habitat, will be donating 100% of the proceeds from their elk antler sales to the incredible rescue organization Animal Hope and Wellness. AHWF is a "...501(c)3 non-profit organization that is focused solely on rescuing abused and neglected animals, providing full rehabilitation services and, ultimately, working to help find them their fur-ever families." We could not be any prouder to be partnering with them! Thank you H.I.T. Habitat!

We love elk antlers as chews for dogs because the antlers are shed naturally, making them cruelty free, fully digestible and do not leave an odor or mess! If you're thinking about a safe chew for your dog and want to help contribute to the saving of lives, check out the custom engraved H.I.T. Habitat Elk Antlers here


My Favorite Time of Year

Halloween speaks to my soul on many levels. I first launched Charlie Bax Halloween of 2014 and it has hands down been my favorite collection thus far. The CB Halloween collection carries over every season with Halloween inspired and engraved, up-cycled cow femur bone candles. This season, I am excited to introduce the Wednesday Addams engrave into the mix. Between the hauntingly beautiful glow of the bone once the flame starts burning, to the contrast the copper candles have covered in faux spider web, this holiday screams Charlie Bax and I hope this collection will light and beautifully haunt your space as it does mine. In honor of this special holiday approaching (and a studio move on the verge) I am excited to announce the entire Charlie Bax Halloween collection will be 50% off through October. Discount already applied. Enjoy!


Bone Dinner Ware Collection

Charlie Bax proudly presents their Dining Ware, Place Setting, Bone Collection. Bone Dining Ware is what initially jump started the bone collection. I was introduced to bone marrow about 4 years ago and instantly fell in love with its structure, uniqueness and potential to be upcycled into home use. Three years, bone candles, candle stick holders, tea light votives, bone vases and a potty humor collection later, I am elated to finally be introducing the Bone Dining Ware Collection. With bone settings for forks, spoons, knives, chopsticks, spoon rests, and napkin ring holders, you have the perfect set for any and all dining entertaining.

Paired with the Dining Bone Ware Collection you will see other Charlie Bax products like our Copper Candle Stick Holders, Copper Patina Tea Lights, Bone Candle Stick Holders, Bone Candles, and Copper Candles.

Boho Baby Shower for Baby Luna

I teamed up with some beautiful ladies and special brands to create a magical boho baby shower for the beautiful parents to be Aaron and Daniela Colton and their baby girl Luna. We filled Charlie Bax copper vases and bone vases with white roses, hydrangeas and greenery from Gelson's and Charlie Bax bone candles and tea light votives helped set the lighting. With a teepee from Dexton Kids, it was the perfect present station.

The dessert table was decked with delicious hand made star and moon sugar cookies and a custom designed cake from Big Sugar Bake Shop that was adorned with gold lunar accents and flowers from Toluca Lake Florist.

Designed to match their rose gold leafed baby shower invitations, I designed custom "thank you" hang tags for the Charlie Bax Lavender scented soy wax candle thank you gifts.
