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.

One of the best scented candles I have ever purchased! Highly recommend these candles.
The Candle smells wonderful
These candles are beautiful and smell wonderful. Very pretty packaging as well! I will definitely be recommending this company to family and friends!
This is one of my favorite scents from Corda! Lovely scent of roses plus the evergreen makes for a beautiful candle to burn anytime but especially in December.
I first got one of these as a tealight sample and thought "this would be perfect for Advent/Christmas" so I ordered a full-size one to use this December. It has a very subtle, lovely scent!
This is so wonderful to hear! We are glad that this scent can be part of your Advent and Christmas season. Thanks for the review Regina! - the CORDA team
A little bit wintry/woodsy with the fir needles yet very feminine/rosy... cozy and uplifting... one of my favorites so far!
