Wabi-Sabi and the Beauty of Imperfection

Wabi-Sabi and the Beauty of Imperfection

Aloha kakou, Makana ‘ohana! We've got some exciting news to share. We're diving headfirst into uncharted territory with our first-ever Seconds Sale, featuring our beloved concrete vessel candles that are, well, a little less than perfect. But worry not, they're still bursting with the same high-quality goodness you know and love.

The Japanese term wabi-sabi refers to an aesthetic philosophy that celebrates the beauty of imperfection, impermanence, and authenticity in life. It's all about finding beauty in the natural cycle of growth and decay, and embracing the uniqueness of each moment and object.

So how are our less-than-perfect concrete candles expressing their best wabi-sabi lives? In the vessels themselves there may be little holes or pockmarks scattered across the surface of the concrete, giving them a unique, rustic charm. There also may be inconsistent coloration or variations in the sealant, adding character and personality to each vessel. But when it comes to the candles themselves, these’s nothing less-than-perfect — it’s still the same creamy coconut-soy botanical blend and the phthalate-free fragrances you’ve come to love. What you get is a beautiful combination of perfect and imperfect all together in one sweet little gift, ready to fill your space with delightful scents and cozy vibes.

Now, you might be wondering why on earth we're celebrating imperfections. Well, the truth is, we believe that imperfection is beautiful. It's what sets each piece apart and gives it a story to tell. Each candle has its own quirks and characteristics, making it truly special. And the best part? You get to snag these beauties at a fraction of the cost. Yes, you heard that right - premium quality candles at a steal of a deal of 30% off our regular prices.

And even better? We’re offering some of our go-to, much-loved scents in these wabi-sabi gems: Sea Salt, Amber Tarragon, Neroli Blossom, and others. Even some old favorites will make an appearance — we see you and hear you, Ginger Citron fans! 

But here's the catch - these babies are going to be flying off the shelves faster than you can say "light my fire." So if you want to get your hands on some unique concrete vessel candles, you better act fast! Trust us, you won't want to miss out on this.

Whether you're a long-time fan of Makana or a newbie looking to add some flair to your space, our Seconds Sale has something for everyone. So go ahead, let’s embrace the wabi-sabi ideal together. We’re all a little imperfect. But in the end, recognition and acknowledgement of those variations makes each one of us beautiful in our own way.
