Scented candle THE HERMIT
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 9 of the Major Arcana – The Hermit. This archetype holds the entire worldly wisdom which every one of us achieves differently by walking along the path of our lives and constantly improving. Parents taught us the main rules of life, the society tries to impose its moral code on us, but only by confronting ourselves in a moment of solitude and peace we can perceive our waymarks and thus find our path. The Hermit denotes original thinking, the courage to make mistakes in search of truth, the courage to face darkness when leaving the comfort zone, even when in risk to be considered eccentric. To finally find oneself it often is necessary to fall back, to move away from the crowd. Who knows, maybe the truth we find will eventually be seen by others as well?
Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, together with The Hermit, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of The Hermit manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical water lily, fig, pine, opium, myrrh fragrance may help to finally find yourself even if it is necessary to fall back, to move away from the crowd.
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.
Opium: the scent is cold, resinous, acidic and bitter, energizes and raises alertness. It awakens consciousness, induces conscious dreaming, creates a connection with one’s ow subconsciousness, evokes and pulls up the most secret thoughts, helps to understand deep problems by revealing them, helps to analyze causes and effects of various events and situations.
Pine: the aroma of pine might be useful in reducing mental, physical and sexual frustration, helps to purify the air. It has a positive effect on the nervous system, eases symptoms of neuralgia and stress, improves mental activity. The aroma of pine boosts self confidence and the ability to make right decisions.
Myrrh: the symbol of wealth, health and prosperity. The fragrance of myrrh helps to sort out thoughts, prevents from indulging into non-relevant details. This scent is particularly suitable for meditation, as it helps to ward off egocentric thoughts, restores the objectivity and adequacy of one’s psychological state, calms irritation, and improves sleep. It also increases sexual sensitivity.
Fig: Fig trees are one of the earliest cultivated plants. Maybe even the earliest. The Bible tells of Adam and Eve, who, after eating the forbidden fruit, felt ashamed and covered their nakedness with fig leaves. Since then, figs have been considered a link between conscious and subconscious, a certain intermediary between the conscious and subconscious worlds. The aroma of figs is believed to boost the powers of clairvoyance and ability to listen to oneself. In the magic practices the fragrance of figs is related to conscious dreaming, intuition and premonition.
Water lily: The Latin name of the water lilies family, Nymphaeaceae is derived from the name of the Greek nymphs living in lakes, rivers and streams, therefore water lilies contain a lot of water and moon energy. Water lilies symbolize tranquility, purity, spiritual glow and modesty. Their aroma helps to fight earthly lusts and soothes the soul. During magic rituals the aroma of water lilies enhances imagination and the ability to visualize your goals.
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 Hermit; a simple meditation/affirmation ritual for revealing the power of the aromatic candle that may help to finally find yourself even if it is necessary to fall back, to move away from the crowd. 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).
