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 is marked with number 4 of the Major Arcana – The Emperor. This archetype comprises the four main roles of a man: Father, Husband, Lover, Servant. The Emperor symbolizes authority, fertility, fatherhood, concern, authority, and the strength of a personality, however, at the same time The Emperor encompasses excessive control, demonstration of power, overly eager desire to take care of the surroundings, as well as waning or dwindled masculine energy. When overly strict, The Emperor might also turn into a dictator.
Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, together with The Emperor, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of The Emperor manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical aroma of cedar, saffron, ambergris, patchouli, and myrrh will help to harmonize the masculine energy and restore the necessary balance.
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.
Cedar: its fragrance has a soothing, invigorating and rejuvenating effect, gives a sense of comfort, therefore it is recommended for sufferers of irrational fears, aggression, hysteria, and anger. Cedar boosts leadership, helps to have faith in oneself, one’s strengths and abilities.
Saffron: an excellent tonic for both mind and body, may be used for reducing pain, treating infections, and stimulating heart rate. The Romans valued the aroma of saffron and considered it to be “gently soothing”, often compared by poets to the soft colors of sunrise or sunset.
Myrrh: 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.
Patchouli: helps to survive and reduce grief, nourishes, invigorates, induces feelings of power, determination and self-confidence. Patchouli essential oil intensifies sensuality, helps to heal from frigidity and impotence. Patchouli essential oil creates an atmosphere of peacefulness, tranquility and love. Since ancient times patchouli has been believed to attract wealth.
Ambergris: it is one of the most-highly prized ingredients of perfume. The smell of ambergris is characterized by unique invigorating evening musk aroma with oriental notes. Ambergris has been long considered a symbol of luxury and power.
