Ceremony Floating Candle
Our ceremony floating candles are perfect for use in any water ceremony. They will definitely bring additional symbolism to your ashes ceremony and will look stunning in the water.
They are non-toxic and entirely biodegradable. The floating candles are made by hand here in Devon using our original design from natural beeswax and coconut shells.
You can use them in your water ceremony by getting those gathered to light the candles at a significant part of the ceremony and then set them on the river/lake/sea and watch them drift off alight. It could make a really special ending to a ceremony or be used as a time for quiet reflection or prayers.
We were inspired by the amazing Hindu ceremonies in Varanasi, India where families gather on the steps of a ghat with waterside steps and place their loved one’s ashes into the Ganges along with petals and floating candles. According to Hindu tradition the light helps to lift the spirit. It is an amazing sight and creates a fabulous spectacle. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the weather but lighting a candle has been used by many religions and cultures for thousands of years to create the right ambience for remembering our loved ones.
We have lots of advice about how to place your loved one’s ashes into the water here.
