Scented candle STRENGTH
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 8 of the Major Arcana – Strength. The victory of the spirit over physical strength, the victory of compassion and empathy over egocentrism, the victory of honor and nobleness over blind pursuit of a goal – all of this is encompassed by the archetype of Strength. The archetype of Strength encourages to curb one’s egocentrism, passions and desires, to hear and emphatically perceive the loved ones, friends and colleagues. Tenderness, understanding and forgiveness can tame even the most predacious beast of hostile life circumstances.
Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, together with Strength, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of Strength manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical grapefruit, vanilla, lilac, geranium, patchouli, cedar, saffron fragrance may help to curb one’s egocentrism, passions and desires, to hear and emphatically perceive the loved ones, friends and colleagues.
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. It is like a witch recipe, where each plant and its aroma have a very important aromatherapic and magic function. The main notes supplement each other with aromatherapic properties and create a high-end fragrance pyramid where each scent has its place in harmony with other aromas.
Grapefruit: its fragrance helps to open the heart, frees from sadness, nervousness and anxiety. The energy of grapefruit’s fragrance boosts optimism, natural charm and self-confidence, restores aura after serious illness or emotional stress. Grapefruit essential oil is recommended when in need of spiritual warmth. In magic grapefruit is particularly related to the ability to attract love.
Vanilla: in ancient times healers used vanilla’s fragrance for treating mental illnesses and nervous breakdowns. Vanilla’s aroma is believed to induce the feeling of safety at the subconscious level and to relieve from anxiety and fears. If you are willing to talk to someone sincerely, want a person to open up to you and trust you, scenting the room with vanilla will help.
Lilac: The cleansing aroma of lilac has been used in magic rituals for removing spells and illusions, for revealing the truth. The fragrance of lilac boosts the mood, promotes the ideas of common good and partnership and raises the mood and personality to a higher spiritual level.
Patchouli: patchouli essential oil intensifies sensuality, helps to heal from frigidity and impotence. Patchouli essential oil creates an atmosphere of peacefulness, tranquility and love. It also helps to stimulate potency and erogenous zones by enriching the partners’ erotic contact with new colors. Since ancient times patchouli has been believed to attract wealth.
Cedar: has a soothing, invigorating and rejuvenating effect, gives a sense of comfort, therefore it is recommended for sufferers of irrational fears, aggression, hysteria, anger or other physiologically inconsistent phenomena, as well as insomnia. It symbolizes abundance and prosperity. Cedar boosts leadership, helps to have faith in oneself, one’s strengths and abilities.
Saffron: in Ireland saffron is still used on baby cots, so that the newborn would grow healthy and strong. In Italy saffron is thrown on the bride and the groom, as it is considered an aphrodisiac that boosts fertility. Arabs, Berbers and the Persians give saffron as a wedding gift for ensuring fertility. The Romans valued the aroma of saffron and considered it to be “gently soothing”, often compared by poets with the soft colors of sunrise or sunset.
Geranium: Helps to decrease stress and to release pleasant memories. Balances emotions and at the same time calms, brings back inner tranquility and hope. Decreases the fear to love, to commit and be abandoned, helps to become more loving. The aroma of geranium helps to open up one’s heart and relieve painful memories from the past.

Together with this soy wax candle you will get:
A detailed description of the candle’s purpose; a description of the magical aroma’s meanings; a card from the Tarot card deck of our design. Its meaning will indicate the current quality of the archetype of Strength; a simple meditation/affirmation ritual for revealing the power of the aromatic candle that may help to curb one’s egocentrism, passions and desires, to hear and emphatically perceive the loved ones, friends and colleagues. Affirmations (Latin affirmatio – to declare, declaration) – positive statements which we repeat to program ourselves, to consistently change ourselves and our thinking, thus consequently transforming the surrounding environment. Our subconscious is very susceptible to often repeated delicate and figurative phrases, therefore, affirmations are like positive programs which we install and run in our subconscious. Repeatedly uttered affirmations help to overcome obstacles and achieve goals that seemed impossible.

Pure cotton wick
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).
