DIY Cord Burning Pack

DIY Cord Burning Pack
$48


Cord burning is a gentle and respectful method to sever the bonds between the placenta and baby using candles, not scissors. It may be a simple process to slowly seperate the two, or a sacred event held with great respect and intention to honour the role of the placenta.

Mindfully created and gathered, this pack includes everything you need for a cord burning ceremony.

– Beeswax Candles x 2: Hand rolled by Jodie @Thirdsecret in Geelong. Candles are made from Pure Australian Beeswax and a pure cotton wick. They have a gentle sweet smell and burn for approximately 22 minutes when burnt horizontally.
– Ceramic Bowl: Handmade by Caitie @Castletoncollective in Jan Juc. The lip of the bowl has been specially designed with a wave to rest each candle and your baby’s umbilical cord. The ceramic is also heat resistant making it safe to use with candles and to catch their wax.
– Baby Protection: Handmade by Cindy @embodhi_ in Geelong. Made with recycled cardboard and recycled aluminium foil to protect your newborn from the candle flames and heat.
– Matches: A little more special then you average redheads and to make sure there is no last minute rush to the shops.
– Guide: A printed guide detailing how to have a beautiful and safe cord burning ceremony.
