Scented candle THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE
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 10 of the Major Arcana – Wheel of Fortune. This archetype of ups and downs reminds us to rejoice every day about the gifts of Fortuna, because one day we see her face, but the next day she might turn her back on us. The archetype of Wheel of Fortune symbolizes the endless cycle of success constantly being replaced by misfortune, and vice versa. It is a never-ending change that can only be stopped by altering one’s won attitude towards the surrounding events. It is a symbolic wheel of karma – you reap what you sow. It is also a symbol of the Samsara wheel, where death is followed by birth, and birth is followed by death. We can only escape this circle through spiritual growth and by looking at our trials and moments of success as if from above and by understanding their purpose.
Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, together with The Wheel of Fortune, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of The Wheel of Fortune manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical helichrysum, cinnamon, verbena, myrtle, sandalwood, juniper berries fragrance may help to escape this circle through spiritual growth and by looking at our trials and moments of success as if from above and by understanding their purpose.
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.

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.

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.

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).
