Devotionally & ritually attuned -
Crystalline virgin coconut soy candle

to illuminate; to make lucid or clear.  Coded for clarity.

Between you and your dreams (your soul's truest path) exists a living cloud cover of dense mists. What lies beyond...unknown to you. Heart aflutter, you embrace the courage to take a step in this direction. Dew of mists upon your skin, you step into the abyss to find the ground rises to meet your feet, the next stepping stone of your journey taking the form of emblazoned light, making its appearance only as you step forward to meet what only your heart could see. And you find yourself, the dance partner of the light and the mystery.

I trust.  I am divinely guided.

Born on the Aries Harvest full moon in 2020, Illume embodies the cardinal fire energies of the Harvest season.  As such He can offer bountiful activation of our own inner fire qualities...namely trust and courage.  These are the fire qualities that our other expressions of life yearn to be paired with. 

One of the beautiful things about fire (and a full moon) is that they provide Light.  Light to illuminate and lend clarity to the paths blazed by those fire qualities.  And an ability to not only see the vision, but to trust where it comes from.


"The aesthetic is undeniable...the true magic happened when I lit the candle though. Tuning into Illume's essence while channeling the consciousness of my business was a total game changer. It was clear that this was not just a candle - she is a powerful tool for ritual. I was able to completely sink into my intention and embody the essence of my business. I was able to tap into this flow state that actually inspired me out of my meditation and into creation mode. Clarity was born. My internal fire burned with the wood wick in unison. As Illume guided and held a sacred container for me. I have done many candle meditations but none have ever been like this. This candle is a portal in and of itself."

love for illume

"I meditated with Illume for a few weeks and I love it. It's presence has been such a comfort, specifically at night when I am taking a bath or doing my nighttime skincare. So soothing.  The scent of Illume feels like comfort and I need it on my body. I hope LaToya will be making this as body oils soon."
