Based on D.W. Winnicott’s  theory of the “good enough” mother (caretaker applies as well) Accepting our own limitations as well as the limitations of others can be a painful and difficult experience. It’s also a very human experience. Often there are  dynamics out of awareness impacting these interactions. 

@drjasonchilds explains this very well. “This is such an important thought in psychoanalysis. What is made me think of was the idea of the good enough mother, who also needs to be bad enough, frustrating enough, disappointing enough— that the child goes looking for satisfaction elsewhere and therefore develops.” 

Being disappointed and also disappointing someone are not mutually exclusive and could be an important experience to unpack- especially if it’s a repetitive theme that doesn’t get worked through in relationships. 

To help navigate the very human experience, we've blended calming chamomile with anxiety rescue clary sage with finishing notes of atlas cedar. 

 

Together, we are #makingScentsofMentalHealth & supporting non-profit Mental Health organizations. A portion of each candle sold will go to Wright Institute Los Angeles (WILA) where Dr. Martinez trained and is now a Director and Clinical Supervisor. 

Ingredients

WAX:
We purchase RAW materials and create a "proprietary" formula: it's nearly 100% soy wax, with a just touch of beeswax to elongate the burn time and give it a smooth-looking finish. Before burning any candle, make sure the ingredients work with your body.

OIL/RESIN:
The reason we include essential oil is because it’s a plant's vital "essence” where energy is stored but also the most highly concentrated nutritional and therapeutic benefits reside. This contains chemical messengers that transmit information throughout the body like a normal medicine or prescription would do. We like to call them:Plant Friends with Benefits.

Care information

Flores Lane Candle Burning Tips

  • - Did you know that wax has a memory?

  • - Be sure to allow 4 hours for your first burn OR until the entire top layer of wax melted to maximize the life of your candle.

  • - Trim the wick to ¼ inch each time before burning.

  • - Place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This will also help prevent possible heat damage.

  • - Avoid fans, vents or direct access to air currents.

  • - Do not touch or move a burning candle.

  • - Extinguish the candle if the flame becomes too large. Let the candle cool, trim the wick before re-lighting.

  • - Always keep the candle within your sight.

  • - Make sure the candle is completely out before leaving the room.

  • - Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle.

  • - Never use water to extinguish a candle.

it's about the ingredients.

In 2010, I was diagnosed with late stage neurological Lyme disease and was unable to leave the house. One thing that always made me feel better was lighting candles. But upon researching the candle ingredients, I realized that I was burning petroleum, coal, & unknown fragrances..I decided to make my own with healthy ingredients.
