Scented Candle THE TOWER

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 16 of the Major Arcana – The Tower. The archetype of the Tower symbolizes a person’s overgrown ego and overly big personal ambitions for which the person will be unavoidably punished. Those who rise high, fall low. It is an earthquake that shatters the foundation of life. Such avalanche threatens a person who is overly proud about his or her achievements and when his or her pride becomes too large. Naturally, then a moment of truth comes and the undeserved “prize” is taken away. The Tower also symbolizes the will to take great risks, to demonstrate your abilities and to show off your personality, thus destroying both your own inner harmony and that of those around you and spreading destruction.

Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, in combination with The Tower, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of The Tower manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical orchid, mimosa, coriander seeds, white musk, liquorice, cedar, saffron fragrance may help you not to take great risks, not to demonstrate your abilities and not to show off your personality, thus destroying both your own inner harmony and that of those around you and spreading destruction.

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: has a soothing, invigorating and rejuvenating effect, gives a sense of comfort, therefore it is recommended for sufferers of irrational fears, aggression, hysteria, anger or other physiologically inconsistent phenomena, as well as insomnia. It symbolizes abundance and prosperity. Cedar boosts leadership, helps to have faith in oneself, one’s strengths and abilities.
Saffron: 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.
Coriander seeds: the word “coriander” comes from the Greek language, meaning “anise” + “bedbug”. The aroma of fresh coriander reminds of the smell of bedbugs, hence the name. However, unlike fresh leaves, coriander seeds have a very pleasant aroma, reminding of flowers and lemon. The fragrance of coriander seeds energizes, helps to get rid of fears, encourages to act, boost self-confidence and creativity.
Orchid: this aroma also helps to fight negative emotions, however, it is an egocentric fragrance, which may both attract positive thoughts and feelings, and destroy them. Therefore its use should be very targeted, with specific knowledge of what one wants, otherwise it might overstress egocentrism and extinguish empathy.
Mimosa: sensitive and shy mimosas have been used in magic rituals to induce psychic dreams. Their magical aroma helps to dive into the depths of the soul, to hear your inner voice and receive information from the spiritual world. The fragrance of mimosas is believed to help us feel and understand messages from the gods.
Liquorice: for several thousand years the practitioners of Chinese medicine used it to treat many diseases from ulcer and constipation to nausea. 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.

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.

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.

    We devote this handcrafted home perfume to Odin – the Norse god of war and wisdom. We believe that the magical fragrance of this home perfume and a simple meditation/affirmation ritual (its description is included with the candle) and Odin’s assistance might help to:

    • Gain confidence in your strengths;
    • Gain physical and spiritual powers;
    • Overcome difficulties, obstacles and challenges;
    • Awaken and battle everyday misfortunes and problems, and overcome them.

    In Norse mythology Odin is the chief god, the god of war and wisdom. Odin dwells in the gods’ world Asgard, where from his throne Hliðskjálf he looks over the whole world. Odin is said to have given life to the first humans Ask and Embla.

    The unique formula of this home perfume was created in accordance with all the major perfumery canons. At first the fragrance pyramid will reveal head notes of petitgrain, rich and intense notes of coriander seeds and juniper berries followed by luxurious notes of agarwood, cedar, frankincense and vetiver and our little formula secrets. The aroma at home will be changing over time.  By just one additional fresh perfume you will be able to relive the aroma journey from the first to the very last scent.

    The magic fragrance recipe of this home perfume 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.

    Petitgrain (bitter orange): one of the most effective essential oils for fighting undesirable spiritual and psychological conditions. This essential oil is often attributed the qualities of mood booster, while at the same time it helps to relax. Petitgrain essential oil calms, revitalizes, helps to fight fatigue and stress. A bride’s bouquet, perfumed with this essential oil, will ensure the success of the future marriage.
    Coriander seeds: the word “coriander” comes from the Greek language, meaning “anise” + “bedbug”. The aroma of fresh coriander reminds of the smell of bedbugs, hence the name. However, unlike fresh leaves, coriander seeds have a very pleasant aroma, reminding of flowers and lemon. The fragrance of coriander seeds energizes, helps to get rid of fears, encourages to act, boost self-confidence and creativity.
    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.
    Agarwood: used in incense and perfume since ancient times, mentioned in numerous ancient written sources – Sanskrit Vedas, the Old Testament, and Islamic scriptures. Aquilaria trees are also called god-trees. Agarwood was considered to be so powerful that it could cleanse the soul and banish evil spirits. Traditional Chinese medicine views agarwood as a substance for releasing spasms and also as having warming, balancing, transforming and mind-clearing properties that help to achieve goals.
    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. Like all nuts, cedar nuts symbolize abundance and wealth. Cedar enhances leadership, confidence in oneself, one’s strengths and abilities.
    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.
    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.
