Scented candle DEATH
We created this collection of hand-made candles based on the 22 cards of the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck (Latin arcānus – mystery). These 22 cards can be interpreted as a person’s spiritual path from birth to perfection.
The candle marked with number 13 of the Major Arcana – Death. The Death in the Tarot deck is not related to physical death. It is the archetype of change, transformation and metamorphosis, it marks the end of one period or quality and brings a promise of rebirth, resurrection of a higher level or quality. A person most often faces change as a great challenge or event tragedy, a disturbance of the natural flow of life, and not as an opportunity to grow and expand. That’s why the archetype of Death often seems menacing. When one grasps the necessity of constant change, the archetype of Death becomes even pleasant and inspiring. After all, the absence of change never brings any good. Even the darkest night is replaced by morning.
Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, in combination with Death, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of Death manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical lily of the valley, lemongrass, rosemary, lavender, pine and juniper berry fragrance may help you to accept the necessity of constant change and to replace the darkest night by morning.
The magic fragrance of this candle is based on old customs, traditions and the belief that every plant or aroma has its own magical purpose.

We pour our candles exlusively from natural soy wax that does not emit toxic chemical compounds when burning; burns three times as long as ordinary candles; does not leave any stains, the spills are easy to clean;does not get hot, as it burns in lower temperature than paraffin, therefore the aroma of the candle emanates slowly and unchanged; certified by OU Kosher agency as kosher.We never use any other natural waxes (e.g. palm wax), because we want to create a truly nature-friendly product that would help to preserve natural resources and would not harm the user in any way.
Estimated candle burning time 60 hours. All our scented candles are hand crafted, each of them is unique, therefore their weight and burning duration may differ. During the making of the candle, soy wax is melted in very low temperature, and then, as the wax starts cooling down, the mixture of aromatic oils is added, thus keeping the unique aroma unchanged. Our candles is made in two stages: when the first layer of wax cools down completely, comes the second layer. This allows to avoid air bubbles in the candle, its surface becomes ideally smooth, and the candle’s burning duration becomes even longer.
This candle has a cotton wick and is molded into a handmade porcelain container. Each container is unique, no two are the same. After burning the candle, wipe the jar with hot water so that you can reset it for a new life and use it at your home. Our candle jars are made of food-grade porcelain (SGS and FDA certificates).
