Our Lady of Guadalupe | Fir Needles + Castilian Roses
These serene scents of fir needles and Castilian roses are inspired by Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Behind the Inspiration
When Mary appeared to the Mexican St. Juan Diego, she told him to tell the bishop to build a chapel at the apparition site. This was hard for the bishop to believe, and he told Juan Diego that he must have proof. When Juan Diego next saw Our Lady, she told him to go to a nearby hill and gather roses to give to the bishop. Despite the impossibility of roses growing in winter, Juan Diego obeyed and found beautiful roses that he gathered in his cloak and brought to show the bishop.
Upon opening his cloak, the roses fell to his feet, and the bishop recognized them as Castilian roses, which only grew in his native Spain. But even more miraculous was the image now seen on the cloak, that of a Mexican woman with child, standing on a moon and clothed in stars. This image, that of Our Lady of Guadalupe, is still visible almost 500 years later.
Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patron saint of the unborn, the Americas, and Mexico, and her prayers are frequently invoked by expectant mothers, and for help with pregnancy and with prolife causes.
This apparition is the only time Mary has appeared pregnant, and it seems particularly meaningful since it occurred during Advent, when we remember how she carried Our Lord and prepared for his birth on Christmas Day. Her feast day is December 12.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.

Have ordered a few candles already and sampler and have loved every single one. Especially Mary star of the sea and pier Giorgio frassati
I bought this candle for a gift for my sister-in-law who is a deeply spiritual person for her upcoming birthday. The look and feel of the candle and the scent was better than I could have imagined. The mixture of the fir needles and the Castilian roses really represents our Lady of Guadalupe. I purchased other candles from the company and really liked all of them. Highly recommend these products!
I was looking for a candle to burn during the Christmas season that didn't smell like a too-sweet sugar cookie and this candle is IT. Beautifully light and clean, the perfect winter scent that I can't wait to light on a cold Sunday morning!
This is such a beautiful candle. The scent is soft and reminds me of the coming Advent season. I love your products!
I've purchased half a dozen or more full size candles, and also the sampler pack, and this is by far my favorite scent yet. I particularly love OL of Guadalupe as well. The scent of the candle is a perfect balance of gentle/subtle and rich. It smells just like roses, similar to the rosary beads made from rose petals. Such a lovely smell just sitting in the room or burning. Love this one!
Such an incredible smelling candle! Bought six different scents from Corda and my mom loved this scent so much that I got her one for her birthday and she will probably be getting another for Christmas! Nothing overpowering but just love the sweet smell of roses which reminds us of Our Lady!
