Homework say: Think of Wood as growth: the embodiment of moving towards something and of constant renewal. It’s the element that gives us the structure and the flexibility to cultivate an expansive, hopeful and optimistic life (even when it feels challenging). The one that encourages us to look ahead, plan and make decisions and find clarity. Remember walking through the forest? The deep green canopy above, the soft moss crackling beneath your feet, and the fresh smell of pine breaking through the mist.

Homework’s interpretation of the Wood element is also available as an Essential Oil Blend. 

Made from a rapeseed and coconut wax blend manufactured in the UK: the rapeseed crop is grown in the EU on existing agricultural land and the coconut crop is grown by smallholder farmers in Asia. 

How to use
Burn the candle for 3 hours the first time you use it: you want the melt pool to reach the edge of the jar. And remember to trim the wick to 5mm before relighting. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
