St. Dymphna | Ylang Ylang + Jasmine + Vetiver

Precio habitual $21.50

These peaceful scents of ylang ylang, jasmine, and vetiver are inspired by St. Dymphna. She is the patron saint of those striving for purity as well as those suffering nervous and mental afflictions, and her prayers are frequently invoked by psychologists, psychiatrists, and family and friends of those with these afflictions. Her feast day is May 15.

Behind the Inspiration

The aroma of each of these scents is commonly used to soothe anxiety, stress, and depression. St. Dymphna, virgin and martyr, is the patron saint of those who suffer such afflictions because her father suffered from mental illness after the death of his wife, Dymphna's mother. 

O God, since Thou didst give St. Dymphna to Thy Church as a model of all virtues, especially holy purity, and willed that she shouldst seal her faith with her innocent blood and perform numerous miracles, grant that we who honor her as patroness of those afflicted with nervous and mental illness, may continue to enjoy her powerful intercession and protection and attain eternal life. Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

St. Dymphna, pray for us.

    Saint Dymphna's a Keeper

    It is such a blessing to have a candle named after Saint Dymphna. There touches of mental illness in my family tree, so to have a candle burning in honor of the saint who alleviates these illnesses is a gift.

    Love my candle!

    The St. Dymphna CORDA Candle was the perfect gift - I couldn't be happier with the result! I will absolutely use CORDA candles again for future faith-inpsired gifts, and would absolutely recommend this company to people!


    Wonderful scent that makes the room smell fresh, clean, and floral!

    Powerfully Fragrant

    This has such a rich, deep scent! I thoroughly enjoy it. Even just having the lid off allows the room to fill with intoxicating scent of this candle. Since so much of our personal space is fragrance free, it is overpowering for the husband & kids so I keep it all just for me.

    Love the title

    The candle 🕯 is beautiful as well as the name but the scent wasn’t what I thought it would be. I was hoping for more of a calming scent like lavender or something of the like. The scent for the St. Dymphna candle didn’t seem to connect with what comes to mind for mental health & well being. Thank you!

    Nicholas Zieglmeier

    I personally bought two candles for myself and one for a gift. I will continue to buy these for gifts! Using them fills the home with an aroma that really fosters prayer. Smelling the familiar scents of incense and saintly inspired perfumes brings the mind into a silence and solitude that helps listen to God and calm the spirit. Thank you for making these!

    Loved every single candle

    I bought a handful of candles for friends and family for Christmas. The scents did not disappoint and I love that they are made with ingredients that won’t harm a person’s health. Very beautifully labeled and the saints fit with their scents.

    Great gift for my mom

    I purchased this candle for my mom as a birthday gift and she truly enjoys the scent! She's a little picky so I'm grateful she enjoys it :)

    St. Dymphna candle

    This candle’s scent was peaceful in an uplifting kind of way. I actually only got it in a sample size, but bought a full sized one as a gift for a friend since the scent was great and St Dymphna is the patron Saint of mental illness. As with all the candles, the scents burn clean and don’t feel heavy or toxic. Rather this candle in particular seemed to bring an uplifting ambiance. Obviously recommend as I’ve already shared it with a friend!
