St. Michael the Archangel | Spices + Sandalwood + Incense
These celestial scents of spices, sandalwood, and incense are inspired by St. Michael the Archangel.
Behind the Inspiration
The name "Michael" comes from the Hebrew and means, "Who is like God?" Jewish tradition holds that this was Michael's battle cry when defending heaven against Satan and all the evil spirits.
The incense in Battle Cry immediately brings to mind prayer and the Mass, reminding us of Heaven. The strong spices, which are a nod to his role as protector and defender, are softened by the sandalwood, which calls to mind his gentler role of accompanying the sick and the dying.
St. Michael is the patron saint of police, soldiers, grocers, radiologists, doctors, mariners, paratroopers, the sick, and the dying, and he has been venerated as a healer from the time of the early Christians. His feast day, often called Michaelmas, is September 29.
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us.

If you’re like me, you love to enhance your spiritual experience, lighting these candles will make all the difference. They burn beautifully and the scent is not overly done. I’m giving several out for Christmas presents.
I honestly can’t find a Corda candle I don’t love. I’m one of those people who’s super sensitive to smells and gets a headache just walking past a candle shop in the mall. These are different. They are so natural and gentle and give such a calming feel. There’s something sacred about the feeling they invoke. It might sound strange but I just love them all. But this is definitely a fave!
I love this scent! It is one of my favorites. It's strong without being too pungent.
This is one of the first scented candles I ordered from Corda. I've since ordered 4 more. A couple were gifts, but not all. It is my favorite.
I really like the touch of incense in the candle. My nose is picking up an unexpected soft floral note as well. I do love the way they burn! Excellent craftsmanship!
I love candles, and I have to say that the St. Michael the Archangel scent is THE BEST scent ever. I hope you never discontinue this one, because it is perfect! ❤️❤️❤️
These candles burn clean, provide a powerful addition to prayer reflection, and are delivered in careful packaging. I will order again.
This is my favorite candle- and St. Michael is my patron saint. I discovered the candles from a tea light sampler. For me that was very helpful, as I was able to see which were my favorites and then order more. I love that these candles tie back to the Saints and prayer. Thank you!
I love the smell! The candle is well made! I will be ordering again. Thank you for making such a wonderful product :)
I love this candle! I got it a year ago based on the recommendation of a friend. I loved it so much I’ve ordered another.
