Scented candle THE DEVIL
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 15 of the Major Arcana – The Devil. It is the archetype that constrains a person with chains of earthly desires and passions. The archetype of The Devil lets you know that the material and earthly planes are becoming too dominant in your life, that you are starting to succumb to comfortable stagnation and stop striving for change, progress and growth of your personality. However, by constraining a human with chains of dependence The Devil always leaves a choice of whether to remain chained or to choose freedom and the possibility to grow spiritually by refusing only the eternal struggle for success, daily satisfaction or bodily pleasures. The Devil only tempts to accept the rules of his game, but the human is always free to choose his path. It is the archetype of pessimism, depression and cynicism, it beckons to stop believing in the world’s goodness and ideals.
Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, in combination with The Devil, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of The Devil manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical orange blossom, jasmin, orange, cinnamon, eucalyptus, liquorice, white musk fragrance may help you not to accept the rules of Devil’s game and help you to be free to choose your path.
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.
Liquorice: in pharaoh tombs among other riches scientists discovered remnants of liquorice root. This plant was particularly valued and appreciated. Since ancient times liquorice has also been included in incense for its aroma that positively affects youth, sexuality, charm, and physical health.
White musk: musk is a classical aromatic substance of animal origin, used in perfume-making and extracted from male glands of certain animals (most often musk deers). Since in nature animals use musk as a pheromone to attract the attention of the opposite sex, this aromatic substance has a similar effect on humans as well. White musk is a synthetic substance used in perfumery as an alternative to the red musk of animal origin in order to preserve nature and animal population. The aroma of white musk brings in vitality and energy. It is believed to be a potent aphrodisiac that stimulates senses, arouses and opens the most secret desires and the depths of soul.
Orange blossoms: orange blossom aroma possesses soothing ant antiseptic qualities, acts as an aphrodisiac, helps fight depression and anxiety, and boosts mood. It can be used before any stressful occasion – an interview, examination, public appearance, etc. In cases of insomnia, take a bath with several drops of neroli or diffuse some of it in the evening. In Italy orange blossoms were traditionally used for making bridal crowns.
Jasmine: in India jasmine used to be called “Moonshine in the garden”. Young girls adorned their hair with jasmine blossoms and used them for cosmetic purposes. Cleopatra is said to have had seduced Marc Antony by using jasmine oil during their official meetings in order to arouse his desires.
Orange: its essential oil helps to open the heart, frees from sadness, nervousness and anxiety. It has a relaxing effect on some people, while in others it works as an energizer and wards off melancholy. Orange essential oil boosts optimism, natural charm and self-confidence, restores aura after serious illness or emotional stress. In magic orange is particularly related to the ability to attract love.
Cinnamon: cinnamon creates an inspiring and creative mood, expands, warms, positively affects aura, boosts optimism, integrity of personality, confidence in one’s strength and self-esteem. The fragrance of cinnamon is a great measure for reducing self-pitying and clinging to unlucky past. It lights and brightens personality. In magic rituals cinnamon is used in order to attract love, desire and money.
Eucalyptus: traditional essential oil in medicine cabinets, and extremely popular in aromatherapy. Most often it is used for inhalations, chest rub balsams, massage ointments for treating head cold, influenza, and viral diseases, such as mononucleosis. Eucalyptus essential oil is a wonderful preventative measure and is extremely suitable for cleansing and freshening air in rooms.

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.

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.

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).
