These soothing scents of mint, eucalyptus, and sage are inspired by St. Teresa of Avila, a mystic and a Doctor of the Church. She is the patron saint of headache sufferers and those who have suffered the loss of a parent. Her feast day is October 15. 

Behind the Inspiration

The founder of the Carmelite order, St. Teresa of Avila, experienced great physical suffering throughout her life, including being so ill when she was young that when she came out of a days-long coma, a grave had already been dug for her. She credits her recovery from the coma to the intercession of St. Joseph, for whom she later named her first convent.

The aroma from these scents is commonly used to soothe and treat migraines and other head ailments. Their clean, heavenly fragrances also call to mind Teresa's profound mystical life.

St. Teresa of Avila, pray for us.

Holy Women collection | 45+ hour burn time | 6 oz. candle

    You’ll get the cleanest, longest, and safest burn from your candle with a few simple steps:

    • Always trim the wick before lighting to 1/8”–1/4”
    • Burn until the melted wax reaches edge to edge, or very nearly, to reduce tunneling
    • Burn only up to 4 hours at a time
    • Always keep a burning candle in sight, away from flammable materials, out of drafts, out of reach of pets and children, and on a heat-safe surface
    • Keep out of direct sunlight
    Each candle is handcrafted with CORDA's proprietary all-natural coconut wax blend, custom phthalate-free fragrances, and a cotton and paper wick primed with all-natural wax. Learn more about the ingredients here.

    I gave it as a gift to a friend. She prayed the rosary while the candle was lit. I am so happy it brought her peace. Thank you!


    Great smelling candle!

    A candle with extra benefits!

    I bought these candles for my daughter and myself because we both get migraines. These candles are very soothing and great aromatherapy for headaches. Never disappointed with my purchases from Corda!

    Growing closer to St. Teresa of Avila

    When I was studying "The Interior Castle" by St. Teresa of Avila, I learned of Corda Candles. I was delighted when I saw that Anna had a candle dedicated to St. Teresa. I immediately ordered one for myself and my four other spiritual companions. The smell of the candle is amazing and helps me to enter into a more peaceful frame of mind. My companions love it too.

    I gave as gifts and they seem to like the scents but I don't think they have used yet
