Here at the Yama Yoga Store, we carry candles for all occasions and intentions. The use of Candles goes back some 5,000 years. It is thought that in Ancient Egypt they used torches made by soaking the core of reeds in animal fat. Candles play an important role in religious ceremonies all over the globe where lighting a candle has a significant meaning. A candle can be a symbolic ritual in celebration, love, accenting the home, and certainly to help with attaining an intention. Candles cast a warm glow of light and can take the staleness out of any room!
