Are these candles really organic?
Yes! In fact, they are vegan friendly, completely organic, and hand crafted in a quaint studio space in Long Beach, CA. The Lovers Luna candle is made using soy/vegan friendly wax sans the paraffin; led-free, cotton wicks; and a carefully curated scent of essential/ fragrance oils sans those nasty phthalates! When you breathe these in, you're doing something good for your mind, body, spirit & environment.
What are phthalates & paraffins? Why is it so great that these candles don't have this in them?
Phthalates are a combination of chemicals used to lengthen the lifespan of a candle. Kind of like preservatives in food. Paraffins are a wax soluble that allows the consistency of a candle to remain in tact however, when burned, highly toxic benzene and toluene (both are known carcinogens) are released into the air causing indoor air pollution. In fact, the toxins released from paraffin candles are the same as those found in diesel fuel fumes. Combine paraffin and phthalates found in most over-the-counter candles and you get a pollution infested combination, similar to that of breathing in second-hand smoke! Stay away from the chemicals! And, just because a candle says "soy" or "organic" does not mean its healthy to burn. Stay informed on your relaxation.
What does "cleansing according to the lunar cycle" mean?
Here at Funeral Parade, we believe in the energy surrounding us at all times. As the moon is a number one source of gravitational pull, each moon phase has the natural power to influence our energy, and it is up to us to determine where that influence folds out. The Lovers Luna candle is hand poured in small batches, according to the lunar cycle. With a full moon or New Moon, at the energies most potent. These candles are then cleansed of any unnecessary, lingering energy, before shipment.
What is the shelf life of your candles?
Considering the Lovers Luna candle is truly all-natural, containing no unnatural preservatives or chemicals, the typical life-span of each candle is anywhere from 18-24 months. If products are kept at room temperature or below, away from direct sunlight, they will stay fresh and invigorating longer. And, remember, do not leave in your car as they will melt!
What is the purpose of the enclosed mantras with each candle purchase?
Lovers Luna intends to create an experience with their product; a mind-body-soul type energetic connection. Their belief is, in this day-to-day craziness of busy schedules and electronic overloading, its easy to forget what really matters, you. Each mantra is carefully written with intentions to bring a certain energy into your life while taking in the aromatherapy from each candle burn. And, the mantras can be chanted on-the-go as well. The entire point is to take a few moments for yourself, to breathe, repeat, and remember to bring yourself back to core to recharge and invigorate your next steps forward.
What is aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a nice little holistic remedy used for energy healing, chakra opening, mental cleansing, and so much more. Essential oils are derivative from plants, and when ingested, breathed in, topically applied, a sense of healing begins. It can be used as a preventative approach and active method to employ during illness, whether physically, spiritually, or emotionally. The Lovers Luna candle contains a multitude of essential/ fragrance oils intended to heal and emit positive, refreshing, mind clearing scents.
Do I need to buy every candle in the 1-2-3 process to get the full effect of the candles?
No! Feel free to purchase whichever candle is speaking to you for your specific needs. A lengthy description is included on each candles product page so you are able to gain some insight on the intended journey for each burn. However, if looking for a full experience, the full process is definitely something to invest in. A trio-set is also offered for those looking to test out the experience before fully committing.

Are these made with raw minerals?
Yes! Each piece of jewelry containing a stone/ crystal is made from 100% raw mineral. With this, the stones carry energy from the earth, delivering good feeling vibes while wearing. The Mystic Bones jewelry collection is hand crafted in a quaint studio space out of Rancho Cucamonga, CA with the intentions of creating something that doesn't only look great, but feels great as well.
What does it mean that the jewelry is, "cleansed"?
When working with raw minerals, the energy is at its most potent. In order to ensure you receive a clear, positive piece, each piece is cleansed from the jewelry creator herself. She uses a white sage stick for smudging, and selected mantras are chanted upon each piece in regards to their specific purpose. We recommend you continuing this process each month, at the beginning of the new moon. You can lay the piece outside, on a window ledge, burn some white sage and chant what energy you would like to go in to each piece for the next 30 days of wearing.
