St. Joseph the Worker | Leather + Sawdust

Regular price $21.50

These rugged scents of leather and sawdust are inspired by St. Joseph the Worker. 

Behind the Inspiration

St. Joseph lovingly provided for his family through the work of his hands. Scripture tells us Jesus was "the carpenter's son" and Joseph is often depicted with the tools of his trade. The leather of his work apron and the sawdust from his cuttings inspired this candle. 

He is the patron saint of the universal Church, workers, carpenters, fathers, travelers, and the dying, and his prayers are frequently invoked by those seeking employment and those trying to buy or sell a house. St. Joseph's feast day is May 1. 

St. Joseph the Worker, pray for us.

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

Lovely candles to give or use

The sweetly earthy scents of this candle are soothing and gentle; they bring a calm peace wherever they are lit. Corda candles burn very clean and last a long time. The scents and the inspiration make them thoughtful gifts and good candles for lighting during devotions or other quiet times.

We are so happy you are enjoying Carpenter Shop and that it can add a sense of peace into your home. Thanks so much for the review Lucy! - the CORDA team

Great Gift for Father's Day!

The St. Joseph the Worker was a great gift for Father's Day during the year of St. Joseph. The smells are clearly inspired by the work of this saint. This candle would also make a great birthday, Christmas, or any time gift for any one who is dedicated to St. Joseph.

Thank you so much for the kind review and for gifting CORDA to people in your life Abby! We hope St. Joseph continues to bless your year! - the CORDA team

Happy Husband

Saint Joseph is a Saint whom I ask intervention for in my marriage, my work, our work.
I like that Corda candles help me to stay focused on inspiration from those that came before me.. My husband enjoys "Baytle Cry " Scent of Saint Michael....but prefers Saint Joseph's "carpenters shop" because of it's inconspicuous subtly.
Thank you Anna for your production of a pure candle. COCONUT OIL! HAND poured. Ship with the end in mind. ( stephan Covey). Personal touch. You are loved and prayed for!
Thank you for the dedication you display for the Faith of Catholicism.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review and compliments Stacie! We are so happy that both you and your husband love the scents; especially Carpenter Shop. We will be praying for St. Joseph's intercession for your family during the rest of this year dedicated to him! - the CORDA team

St. Joseph the Worker Candle

What a beautiful candle. I bought 4 of them and gave all three away on the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker and kept one for myself. Its in my kitchen and the smell is nice. I also purchased Battle Cry, Hey who does need St. Michael on our side and I purchased Divine Mercy. Thank you so much and I am sure I will be ordering more in the near future. God bless you in your ministry.
