Zen is a Japanese school of Mahayana Buddhism emphasizing the value of meditation and intuition. When you light the Zen candle, think about how you feel when your space is filled with good energy and positive thoughts.
The Zen candle is a combination of sweet, woody and fruity in one vessel. It has a more milder scent compared to the others so, if you’re looking for something that’s not overpowering but enough that you can smell it around, then Zen is your girl.
Palo santo, which is one of the middle notes in this candle is considered calming and grounding, yet energetic. The Palo Santo tree contains a family of phytochemicals called terpenes.
Scientific evidence suggests that the sense of smell is intimately tied to our sense of emotional well-being and our ability to cope with stress. Emotionally, Palo Santo oil is grounding and provides a sense of peacefulness and calm.
Burn the Zen candle when you want to cleanse your space to rid it of any negative energy and bring in all the good vibes.
Good to know
Before lighting your candle for the first time, trim your wick to 0.25” (or 3/16") above the wax and let your candle burn for 2 - 4 hours to achieve a full melt pool (meaning there is no unmelted wax along the corners of the candle jar).
Please refer to our candle care guide for more information.
- Failure to follow instructions could result in fire hazard, injury or smoke damage.
- Trim wick to 3/16” above wax for your candle to burn properly.
- Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
- To prevent fire, do not leave burning candles unattended.
- Do not place burning candles on or close to anything that is flammable.
- Keep burning candles out of reach of children.
- Do not touch candle vessel while it is burning as the container will be hot while candle is lit.
Usually I choose which candle to light based on what I’m in the mood for. Sometimes when I just can’t decide, I invariably choose a Seventh & Oak candle. The entire Wellness collection has been well thought-out from materials to scents to packaging. Each candle’s description provides a guide for use, and my experience with Zen has been personally therapeutic: I burn it in a small room, walk in from time to time, inhale deeply and feel the peace and calm wash over me. Ahhh!
I reached out to Seventh & Oak before purchasing Zen. I wasn't sure which scent would compliment a home office, and this scent was suggested. I've been burning this candle every time I have a busy work day (which seems is most days!). I was very happy with the suggestion and definitely feel super Zen while being very productive! Thank you again for the suggestion.
Thank you for your review, Eloisa!
Amazing! I wasn't sure what to expect from the Zen candle because none of the scent notes were familiar but I was PLEASANTLY surprised! I lit it for the first time after a long work from home day. I tidied up my room, took a hot shower, turned up the AC and lit the candle. It smelled incredible and felt so so so so relaxing, I'm more than halfway through the jar and I'm waiting on the restock email to get a new on.
We love an adventurous Queen. Thank you for trying our scents and loving them.
I bought this candle as a gift for my dad, hopping he'd like the woody notes and the crackling wick, and I'm so glad I did. It turned out to be the perfect gift! When it arrived, I took a quick whiff for myself and was honestly floored with emotion. It smells EXACTLY like the aftershave he wears. Smelling it was like being wrapped up in one of his warm hugs. I dropped it off at my parents' place a few days ago and later that night Dad called to say how amazing it is and how much he loves it (as expected, he's completely charmed by the wooden wick)! Safe to say, I know exactly what gift I'll be getting him in the future. I plan on buying one for myself, too, for days when I'm missing home.
That was so sweet of you and we're so happy your dad loved them! Thank You for your feedback!
