Tea lights & Holders

Purple Lotus Flower Tea-Light Holder

Product Information

The Lotus Flower is commonly recognized as a symbol of achieving enlightenment, peacefulness and spirituality. This candle holder can be fitted with tea-light candles or slightly larger candles - the diameter of the middle, the actual 'holder' is roughly 5.5cm, so it will fit any candle with the same diameter.

It is a lovely violet/deep purple colour with a gold edging along each of the lotus petals. When a candle is lit in the middle, because of the layers of petals this then emits a soft glow and the candle is sheltered enough to be used both indoors and outdoors.

The light is softer compared to electric lighting which can help to clear your mind and would compliment meditation, yoga or chakra re-alignment (although it still looks lovely even without a candle lit inside). It is also fairly light to hold, so it could be placed on the mantelpiece or wherever suits you.

These candle holders are hand made in the Philippines. The petals are made from natural Capiz shell, a type of Oyster (also known as the 'Windowpane Oyster) that can be found abundantly in the coastal waters of the Philippines and near India. To clean the holder, you can just wipe it with a damp cloth.

Please note the colour of the tea-light holder may vary very slightly from the colour on your screen due to monitor colour restrictions. Each piece is unique and the colour will vary slightly with each piece.

Size of Tea-Light Holder: Diameter is approximately 13.5cm (5.5") and weighs approximately 50 grams, (100 grams including packaging).

The Lotus Candle Holder Comes With a Small Leaflet That Reads:

A ritual of light, colour, harmony, unity and atmosphere.

The lotus flower is a symbol of transformation from darkness into the light, from innocence into insight and wisdom, towards peace and serenity. The symbolism derives from the fact that the lotus grows its roots in the dark dirt below, while his wonderful flower is always turned towards the light.
The Lotus Candlelight's are symbols of these qualities, and also of the 7 main energy centers of the human body (chakras). The warm light of a Lotus Candlelight invites pleasant feelings and offers healing effects.

The effects of colours:
Chakra 7 - Violet: Sedating effect in mind and body. Enhances purpose and dignity.
Chakra 6 - Indigo: Calming and soothing. Aids trusting our intuition. Colour of higher knowledge and wisdom.
Chakra 5 - Blue: Soothing, relaxing and healing. Also the colour of communication.
Chakra 4 - Green: Balancing and harmonizing. Activates feeling of love, tolerance and understanding.
Chakra 3 - Yellow: Stimulates mental activity and feelings of self confidence. Aids study, because it keeps you alert.
Chakra 2 - Orange: Warming and energizing. Orange is also the colour of pleasure and coziness.
Chakra 1 - Red: Provides extra energy, stimulates our emotions. Activates digestion. Restores contact with the Earth, our living space.
The colour of white will be active in all chakras, and represents clarity and purity.

Light a candle with attention and love, and let its light be healing, for yourself, for someone in particular, and in general for all living beings.

Let your rainbow body shine!

What Holisticshop staff think

"This is probably one of my favorite products from Holisticshop - we must say that about all our products right? But genuinely, this is a beautiful piece and even more so with a candle lit inside; it emits a soft purple light which I found very calming. And I had a lot of fun photographing it, mainly because in product terms it was very photogenic!

I also love that these are hand-made, it's nice knowing that each flower is individual and unique in it's own way. The petals are made from Capiz Shell which can be quite delicate. Due to the nature of the shell they are very slightly see-through, which is what allows the glow of the candle through the flower.

The Lotus Flower has a very rich history behind and is known through many cultures such as Hindu, Buddhist and Egyptian. It is known to be a symbol of many things, again depending on the culture or the context in which it is presented. Most commonly it represents purity, divine birth, enlightenment and spiritual development.

You might buy this to aid within meditation or yoga, or simply because it's a lovely piece."

Dictionary Terms Explained

Lotus Flower - Rebirth, faith, beauty
The lotus flower is held sacred in many traditions as a symbol of rebirth, growing up from the mud towards the light where it opens up and blossoms. Each morning the flower opens. At night it sinks underwater again.

The lotus flower is central to one of the Egyptian creation stories where the lotus flower gave birth to the sun. A lotus flower emerged from the great darkness. From within the lotus flower came the divine child Re, the sun. The petals opened and Re cast his brilliant light.

Thus it can be seen that wearing or having near you a symbol of the lotus flower is a symbol of rebirth and faith in the beauty and perfection of creation. The symbol can be used during times when you wish to encourage new life and miraculous new growth in your life.

This is by FAR my favourite thing I have ordered from this site. It is very delicate so you need to be careful - I have an Afghan Hound which bounds around the house so I keep this upstairs out of the way (I'd be really sad if it got damaged) BUT when she's snoozing on her sofa in the evenings this has pride of place on the coffee table. This is beautiful without being lit but once lit this is MAGICAL. If you love purple like I do you NEED to have one. Team this with the pack of 24 Organic candles from this site for a winning combination. Very romantic. Perfect centrepiece for a table and with valentines day coming up I know most boyfriends/girlfriends would get extra brownie points for getting this to decorate the table for a romantic dinner with the added charm of this being re-usable (extra valentines present) and absolutely gorgeous. This is one of my favourite things. It arrived VERY well packaged and in immaculate condition. The photos really do not do this justice. Absolutely stunning and makes relaxing a lot easier. Thank you :)
