All Souls' Day | Clay + Stone + Stillness

Regular price $21.00
/

**Limited Edition** Available only October 1 - November 30.

These somber scents of clay, stone, and stillness are inspired by the feast of All Souls' Day, observed on November 2.  

 

Behind the Inspiration

"Memento mori" is Latin for "Remember death," sometimes also translated as "Remember you will die." This is a solemn reminder that one day we will stand in judgment for what we did and who we became. The scents of clay, stone, and stillness call to mind our burial and our waiting for Christ's return to raise the living and the dead.

Memento Mori is also a joyful reminder of the promise of the life to come: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" (Jn 3:16).

And finally, it is motivating, because keeping death before our eyes helps us strive to live a full and virtuous life while we can.

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

Peaceful, Soft

It is a lovely scent. a bit incense-y, a tiny bit floral. it is a calm scent without the "bite/sharpness" of something like grass or citrus. soft scent. Very nice. similar type of scent as fount of mercy, but different. well done!!

All Souls Day

What a special candle. We can placed in the middle of a tray of stones and let it burn on Good Friday. It’s unique yet pleasant smell was a reminder to remain quiet and prayerful throughout the day.

Unexpected but wonderful

I wasn't really sure what to expect from the scent of stone and stillness, but it is so relaxing. I lit it while trudging through my final projects and it made a much more peaceful ordeal.

Thanks for giving this candle a try, and I'm so glad it's been helpful as you worked! - Anna

Precisely perfect!

I wasn't exactly sure what to expect of this candle, but Anna has done it again! I'd describe it as a pleasant, clean/earthy smell. The marriage of the two is utterly perfect for it's intent.
