St. Dymphna | Ylang Ylang + Jasmine + Vetiver
These peaceful scents of ylang ylang, jasmine, and vetiver are inspired by St. Dymphna.
Behind the Inspiration
Star-shaped ylang ylang and jasmine flowers have calming and happy scents, and vetiver is a grass with an earthy and grounding scent. These scents are all commonly used in aromatherapy to soothe anxiety, stress, and depression, and help improve one's mood. The pure white jasmine flower is also a traditional symbol of purity.
St. Dymphna, virgin and martyr, 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.
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.

I have tried all (or maybe almost all, by now) of Corda’s scents via the samplers. This is one of my very favorites, maybe my very favorite. I have mixed response to vetiver in scents, but this was wonderful. Light and easy, I was surprised by how much I liked it.
The scent is subtle but so calming! It’s a great uplifting scent for anytime of the day.
It’s so wonderful to hear that this candle fits so well in your life Mary! Thanks so much for the review! - the CORDA team
I bought this candle for a friend, after she said she LOVED the first St. Dymphna candle she received. My friend said it was the perfect soother after a rough day of being a mom. Who doesn't need the calming scents of the saints at the end of a hard day?
We are so happy to hear that this candle helped out a mama in the day to day! Thanks for gifting the candle to her and for supporting her! We appreciate the review! - the CORDA team
The St. Dymphna candle scent is lovely! The scent reminds me of a fresh spring day. I have it in my office at work and all my co-workers love the smell of my hallway and office. The scent is not over powerful and is relaxing.
Thank you for sharing how you use this candle in your everyday life! We are glad that both you and your coworkers enjoy the scent. Thanks for the review Emily! - the CORDA team

I love the candles I ordered, St. Dymphna Light and Darkness and Our Lady of Guadalupe Roses in Winter. Beautiful scents that fill up a room. These are good quality candles and worth every penny. I have a suggestion for a scent - Chrism oil. So glad your company showed up on my Facebook feed.
We are so happy to hear that you are enjoying your candles Denise! There is a Chrism oil scent coming out later this fall, so be on the lookout. Thanks for the review! - the CORDA team
Corda candles are the best. This scent of ylang ylang, jasmine and vetiver is lovely. The candle itself is a beautiful addition to any decor. St. Dymphna was my choice as she is a patron of those suffering from mental illness. I am reminded to ask for her intercession when I light this candle.
Thanks so much for the review Carla! We pray that St. Dymphna continues to intercede for those loved ones in your life! - the CORDA team
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.
Thanks for the kind review Marie! We will keep your family members in our prayers! - the CORDA team
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!
Thanks so much for gifting the candle Marie! We are happy to hear that the recipient loved the candle and hope it continues to be a light for them. We appreciate the review! - the CORDA team
Wonderful scent that makes the room smell fresh, clean, and floral!
Thank you for the feedback on the scent! We are so glad you enjoy. - the CORDA team
