Mossy, sweet, smoky
Yakshas are nature-spirits, the caretakers of natural treasures in the earth and trees. They're mischievous, secretive and Guna's Yaksha scent draws on sweet and spicy Oakmoss to transport you to rich, fragrant forests. Choya Loban is smoky and resinous, adding mystery and depth, while Ruh Rajnigandha (Soul of Tuberose) is complex, floral and intoxicating.
Use Yaksha when you want to feel amazed, abundant and playful.
Notes: Oakmoss, Choya Loban (Smoky resin), Ruh Rajnigandha (Tuberose)

TIPS AND TRICKS
Yaksha is sweet and grassy, with a hint of flowers and smoke. This scent smells like adventure and discovery, like secrets and mysteries. Use Yaksha when you want feel a sense of wonder and mischief.
Light the Yaksha Candle and place it on a heatproof surface. Allow the top surface of the candle to melt each time you use it to ensure even burning. Trim the wick before each use.
Copper use in India dates back to the Indus Valley Civilisation, around four thousand years ago, when it was used to make bangles, rings, weapons and tools. During Vedic times, it was also used for water purification and health benefits, a practice which continues through Ayurveda today.
Guna's candles are poured in bowls made from hand-beaten copper. A natural patina appears over time, developing character as it ages. The inside of the bowls are high-grade stainless steel, ensuring the copper doesn't become too hot as you burn the candle. You can re-use these bowls as serving-ware, decorate bowls, or to mix skincare products like Ubtan and the Vajara Scrub.

How do I know which candle is best for me?
Each candle product page describes the scent profile, the inspiration behind the fragrance, and how it makes you feel.
Consider all of these factors when choosing a candle. If you have an immediate response to one of our candles, that's probably the one for you, at this moment in time.
Each scent elicits a different response, and has been formulated to be universally appealing. Depending on your moods, needs and the seasons, you may gravitate to a different scent.
My candle has a frosty surface. What is that?
Sometimes candles solidify with a frosty looking surface. This is not a defect and doesn't impact the performance or scent of your candle.
This can happen because we use 100% natural ingredients, no stabilisers or setting agents. Small variations in each candle are a sign that your product is made by hand, using ingredients that are as close to the source as possible.
