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.

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 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.

    Sweet 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. Sweet orange essential oil boosts optimism, natural charm and self-confidence, restores aura after serious illness or emotional stress. Sweet orange essential oil is recommended in need of spiritual warmth. In magic orange is particularly related to the ability to attract love.
    Black peppercorns: their aroma helps to reduce pain, activates blood circulation, has a warming quality and a positive effect on aching muscles and joints, stimulates and energizes in cases of weariness, fatigue, and emotional frigidity, stimulates appetite, relaxes, helps to reduce fever and positively affects digestion. Aromas of peppers, just like all tangy spices, cleanse the energy field, helps to get rid of negative energy and protect against harmful surrounding effects.
    Juniper berries: since ancient times juniper has been used to protect from and ward off evil spirits. The energy of this scent helps to develop the personality’s consistence and perseverance, the ability to distinguish lies and fight them easily. It protects the aura form aggression, helps to quickly find a proper way from any difficult situation. It also helps to avoid self-projected destructive irritation, gain the deserved authority, and develops such qualities as nobleness, grace, etc.
    Saffron: an excellent tonic for both mind and body, may be used for reducing pain, treating infections, and stimulating heart rate. In Ireland saffron is still used on baby cots, so that the newborn would grow healthy and strong. In Italy saffron is thrown on the bride and the groom, as it is considered an aphrodisiac that boosts fertility. Arabs, Berbers and the Persians give saffron as a wedding gift for ensuring fertility. The Romans valued the aroma of saffron and considered it to be “gently soothing”, often compared by poets with the soft colors of sunrise or sunset.
    Cedar: has a calming, strengthening, rejuvenating effect, gives a feeling of comfort and is therefore recommended when feeling unfounded fear, aggression, hysteria, anger, other anti-physiological behaviors as well as insomnia.

    Frankincense: the plant was named after the French word “franc”, meaning “luxurious”. Frankincense has long been used for producing incense. Frankincense (Boswellia) incense was one of the presents of the Three Kings to baby Jesus. In Ancient Greece frankincense resin was burned on altars and in temples, because it slows down and deepens breathing, which helps to calm down and immerse in prayer and meditation. The smell of frankincense calms and soothes, it is used during meditations even today.
    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.
    Vetiver: nourishing and cooling vetiver oil relaxes the heated and overactive mind and encourages, strengthens and inspires every personality. For both those who are exhausted from excessive intellectual activity and those who have lost touch with the body, vetivers return a sense of healthy self and reduce the separation between matter and spirit. The aroma of vetiver helps to focus and concentrate extremely quickly. Vetiver oil is also considered a good remedy for unexpected outbursts of anger.
