Light for Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness
Our 16 oz 'Light for Alzheimer's' candle from Mystic Pines Candle Co., has been created in honor of our dear friends and family who have been affected and afflicted with this disease. Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that poses great challenges with memory, thinking and behavior. Treatments for symptoms are available, but currently there is no cure. We need to find an end to Alzheimer's! These candles are handcrafted, 100% soy wax, Reiki Blessed, then crowned with Amethyst and Clear Quartz crystals. Amethyst is known as 'the stone of spirituality.' It creates a protective energy field around its wearer, assists in removing negative energies, gives protection from external negative energies, and brings peace and calm to those in its immediate surroundings. Clear Quartz can be used to clear and stimulate the energy centers (Chakras) of your body. It aids in purifying your physical, mental and spiritual bodies. It can help heal negativity and stimulate positive thoughts.
Light for ALZ is available in Apple Blossom, Lavender, Lilac, Macintosh, Nag Champa and Unscented.
Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks. (ALZ.ORG)
Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases.

Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging. The greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older. But Alzheimer's is not just a disease of old age. Approximately 200,000 Americans under the age of 65 have younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease (also known as early-onset Alzheimer’s).

Alzheimer's worsens over time. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but with late-stage Alzheimer's, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment. Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Those with Alzheimer's live an average of eight years after their symptoms become noticeable to others, but survival can range from four to 20 years, depending on age and other health conditions.

Alzheimer's has no current cure, but treatments for symptoms are available and research continues. Although current Alzheimer's treatments cannot stop Alzheimer's from progressing, they can temporarily slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve quality of life for those with Alzheimer's and their caregivers. Today, there is a worldwide effort under way to find better ways to treat the disease, delay its onset, and prevent it from developing.

***Candles burn best (and longest), when you allow a wax 'pool' to extend completely to the glass, otherwise your candle will tunnel straight down and the life of your candle will diminish greatly. Ceiling fans and floor fans can also affect the way your candle burns.***
