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.

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.

    The magic fragrance of this natural incense 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.

    Nag champa: this authentic incense is produced from the blossoms of a holy tree. In India it is called “nagakesara”, “nag champa” or the tree of “cobra’s saffron”. In Ayurvedic medicine extracts from this plant’s blossoms, seeds, leaves and bark have been used since ancient times. Nagakesara or nag champa trees grow in many locations from southern Himalaya slopes to Sri Lanka and Andaman Islands. Mesua or the ironwood is an average-sized tree with exceptionally hard wood and fragrant blossoms. The most subtle incense is made from the blossoms of the nag champa tree, which symbolize sexuality, fertility, passion and love.

It symbolizes abundance and prosperity, and is often used in magical rituals for protection from negative effects.
    Myrrh: the Bible tells us a story of the Three Kings, who came to honor baby Jesus and brought him myrrh as one of the presents. Myrrh was valued equally to gold, and the Greeks still consider it sacred. For about one-and-a-half thousand years myrrh was one of the most valuable commodities in the world and thus Arab traders who sold incense were amongst the wealthiest people. Myrrh is the symbol of wealth, health and prosperity. The old civilizations used the resin of myrrh-trees as perfume and incense, as well as in medicine, where wound ointment made of myrrh was valued greatly. Myrrh essential oil has antiseptic qualities, stops inflammation and speeds up healing. 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.
    Ambergris: solid, flammable, waxy substance, produced in the digestive system of sperm whales and often called “floating gold”. Usually it is found floating in the water or washed on shore in tropical countries, and is highly valued by the perfume industry where it is used for producing expensive perfume. This waxy odorous substance is lighter than water and can float in the sea for years, where under the influence of salty water and sun it becomes hard. When kept in a hermetic container, ambergris gives off a strong scent of musk, which is highly 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. The smell of ambergris is characterized by unique invigorating evening musk aroma with oriental notes. Ambergris has been long considered a symbol of luxury.
    Sandalwood: its aroma harmonizes and calms, helps to reduce stress and turmoil, is a perfect mood booster for people suffering from depression, fears, and everyday problems, helps in cases of nervous breakdown or anxiety.
