Scented candle THE EMPEROR
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.
This candle marked with number 6 of the Major Arcana – The Lovers. This archetype is, first of all, a symbol of true, elemental, romantic love that makes one go head over heals. It is Heaven on Earth. However, at the same time The Lovers remind that love is often blind, therefore it is necessary to keep balance between heart and mind, between personal desires and universal human values. Everything in the world is dual, everything has a counterbalance: light cannot exist without shadow, fire cannot burn without wind, and the earth cannot bear fruit without water. When to reap and when to sow? Why is it necessary to choose? Which path is the right one? The answer is simple – the one you love.
Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, together with The Lovers, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of The Lovers manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical grapefruit, orange blossoms, vanilla, ambergris, liquorice, oriental spices, rhubarb fragrance may help to keep balance between heart and mind, between personal desires and universal human values.
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.
Orange blossoms (Neroli): Orange blossom aroma possesses soothing ant antiseptic qualities, acts as an aphrodisiac, helps fight depression and anxiety, and boosts mood. In cases of insomnia, take a bath with several drops of neroli or diffuse some of it in the evening. Neroli is safe even to pregnant women. In Italy orange blossoms were traditionally used for making bridal crowns.
Vanilla: Vanilla’s aroma is believed to induce the feeling of safety at the subconscious level and to relieve from anxiety and fears. This fragrance soothes, helps to reduce anger and other negative emotions. 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.
Ambergris: ancient Greeks used to call ambergris “pulsating sun”. Ambergris is highly valued by the perfume industry where it is used for producing expensive perfume. Ambergris gives off a strong scent of musk, which is valued by perfumers all around the world and which has been used as an aphrodisiac since ancient times. It is one of the most-highly prized ingredients of perfume. Ambergris has been long considered a symbol of luxury.
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.
Oriental spices: The mixture of various herbs and spices contains aromas of pepper, coriander, fennel, anise, and saffron. Like different tones that make up a chord, these scents will acquire new magical and aromatherapy properties when mixed up, but at the same time they will retain their primal nature. The concoction strengthens energy fields, harmonizes and calms.
Rhubarb: since ancient times the aroma of rhubarb has been considered a strong aphrodisiac, and rhubarb jam, made with love, was believed to have power to attract a desired lover.
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 The Lovers; a simple meditation/affirmation ritual for revealing the power of the aromatic candle that may help to keep balance between heart and mind, between personal desires and universal human values. 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).
