St. Dymphna | Ylang Ylang + Jasmine + Vetiver
These peaceful scents of ylang ylang, jasmine, and vetiver are inspired by St. Dymphna.
Notes of earthiness, florals, musk, cedarwood, and galbanum.
Behind the Inspiration
Star-shaped ylang ylang and jasmine flowers have calming and happy scents, and vetiver is a grass with an earthy and grounding scent. These scents are all commonly used in aromatherapy to soothe anxiety, stress, and depression, and help improve one's mood. The pure white jasmine flower is also a traditional symbol of purity.
St. Dymphna, virgin and martyr, is the patron saint of those striving for purity as well as those suffering nervous and mental afflictions, and her prayers are frequently invoked by psychologists, psychiatrists, and family and friends of those with these afflictions. Her feast day is May 15.
O God, since Thou didst give St. Dymphna to Thy Church as a model of all virtues, especially holy purity, and willed that she shouldst seal her faith with her innocent blood and perform numerous miracles, grant that we who honor her as patroness of those afflicted with nervous and mental illness, may continue to enjoy her powerful intercession and protection and attain eternal life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
St. Dymphna, pray for us.

Beautiful sweet-smelling candle. I love it. Thank you.
My husband struggles with anxiety. So when I saw the St. Dymphna candle, I got it for him for Christmas. When he opened it, he said he’d need to burn it all the time!
This is the fourth Cord candle that I have purchased and I love the scents of all of them! All of them are light and refreshing scents in their own unique ways. I’ll be back to purchase more!
This is a great candle. So beautiful and the scent is not overpowering.
This scent is hard to describe but it is the perfect calming scent! My roommate struggles with anxiety and this candle helps her a lot when she's hit with a strong wave of anxiety! I highly recommend!!!
I am very picky with fragrances and have a really strong sense of smell. I have bought a lot of scented candles over the years and these are the best. I LOVE them. They elevate my prayer time not just from the tranquility and peace from the lit candle but knowing and thinking about the saint the candle represents makes it all the more wonderful.I tell people about your candles at any chance I get. Thank you for the beautiful candles you have created.
In Christ through Mary,
I love Corda candles!! The scents are amazing and the candles burn so cleanly! I have bought several for my own home and are gifting many this Christmas!
I love to give these candles as gifts. They are so beautiful. And I love the spirit of the company. I highly recommend.
Light in the Darkness, is a beautiful soft scent. Ylang ylang, jasmine and vetiver blend perfectly to uplift and calm the senses. All Corda candles burn completely and clean, besides smelling wonderful. The scent names inspired by saints are an extra inspiration!
