You may or not be celebrated christmas like normal but there is no reason we can't countdown to christmas in the same way right.

 A Little Box of Advent By Chilli winter

A variation to our very popular box Little Box of Mindful Moments, our Little Box of Advent contains a bundle of 24 handmade 100% beeswax candles, with an elegant brass candle holder.

Place your brass candle stand on a suitable flat surface.
Gently push your candle onto the small hole.

Beeswax is soft and naturally tacky so it will adhere to the brass, given a little warmth from your hands.

Breathe in…light your candle and watch the flame for a moment.
Breathe out…and let your mind settle.

With a gentle honey aroma, each candle has a burn time of approximately 15-20 minutes.
