These peaceful scents of vetiver, ylang ylang, and jasmine are inspired by St. Dymphna.

Nuanced with notes of galbanum, chamomile, and myrrh.

Behind the Inspiration
When Dymphna’s Christian mother died, her pagan father, the king, fell into mental illness and ordered Dymphna to marry him. Having taken a vow of virginity, she refused and was martyred. She is the patron saint of purity and those suffering nervous and mental afflictions, and her candle’s scents can help calm anxiety.

St. Dymphna’s feast day is May 15. 

Jar candle: 6 oz with a 45 hour burn time | Tealight sampler: 3 oz total with a 18 hour burn time

    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

    Surprised by Beauty

    I find your essences so true to their Saint name. St. Dymphna desired a life in tranquil communion with God. Her beauty was admired and was treasured by others. She was a martyr who desired the love of God over all others. This essence is desirable yet totally innocent. It is beautiful in the most subtle ways of an aroma much admired. I was pleasantly surprised by its beauty.

    Perfect candle- the scent is wonderful. Strong, but in no way overpowering. Delightful addition to our family prayers in the evening.

    Excellent gifting option!

    I gifted this to a friend struggling with some major life events; she told me receiving it brought her to tears and "felt like an answer to prayer." So grateful to be able to provide meaningful gifts from a company like Corda!

    This fragrance has a "clean" smell to it. I love the CORDA line of candles and use them daily throughout my home.
