Jan 9, 2023 0 comments

As we enter the new year, you might wonder how you can make your 2023 intentions more successful. The good news is, astrologically speaking, 2023 is predicted to be a much lucky year for everyone. 

But if you want extra assurance after the twisty turmoil of 2022, there's no harm in picking up a few new rituals or mantras that can help you make your year shiny and bright— like Áku Intention Candles!

Even if you're not superstitious, lighting up a candle can really help you amplify the energy of your New Year's intentions. And with that, the intention candles from Áku are here to light up and guide you through your manifestations this 2023!

Áku Intention Candles

Áku, which means "the self" in Kapampangan, started in November 2020 as a passion project by Nicole Alconcel. And true to its name, the intentional candles from Áku can help you achieve mindfulness, manifestation, and inner alchemy. 

"I started learning more about the power of the mind and how to reprogram the subconscious through meditation, and in 2020, I delved deeper into it and its relation to manifestation, healing, mysticism, and alchemy," she said. 

The idea for Áku started from the humanitarian goal of reminding people that they can manifest and shape their life experiences by simply setting an intention.

"I tried making my own vegan version of intention candle for calming the mind to help me meditate better where herbs, essential oils and crystals related to my intentions are infused in the candle," she said. "The candle worked so well with me that I started making another one for self-love, and I noticed that I started to shift my focus back to myself instead of worrying about what was happening in the year 2020."

According to Nicole, the candle industry is filled with scented candles for home décor – which is great too, but what Aku offer is firmly rooted in our purpose and intention of sending good vibrations for healing the mind and state of being. Áku transcends convention, which sets the brand apart from others.
