Mary, Stella Maris | Ocean Breeze + Soft Florals

Precio habitual $21.50

*As of 2/22, please note that this scent is slightly different than the original one. One of the ingredients I used to use was changed by the manufacturer to include harmful chemicals, so I am using something different now. All the same beautiful notes are still there, though!*

These tranquil scents of ocean breeze and soft florals are inspired by Mary, Stella Maris (Star of the Sea). She is the patron saint of seafarers, and her prayers are also frequently invoked by those desiring her to guide them closer to her Son, as the North Star guides those upon the sea. Her feast day is September 27. 

Behind the Inspiration

This cleansing, salty scent immediately reminds you of the sea. It is nuanced with soft florals, reminding us of Mary's humble femininity.

Mary, Star of the Sea, pray for us.

Holy Women collection | 45+ hour burn time | 6 oz. candle

    You’ll get the cleanest, longest, and safest burn from your candle with a few simple steps:

    • Always trim the wick before lighting to 1/8”–1/4”
    • Burn until the melted wax reaches edge to edge, or very nearly, to reduce tunneling
    • Burn only up to 4 hours at a time
    • Always keep a burning candle in sight, away from flammable materials, out of drafts, out of reach of pets and children, and on a heat-safe surface
    • Keep out of direct sunlight
    Each candle is handcrafted with CORDA's proprietary all-natural coconut wax blend, custom phthalate-free fragrances, and a cotton and paper wick primed with all-natural wax. Learn more about the ingredients here.

    Special Candle

    I got this for myself (a small birthday present) — the candle itself is lovely to look at and it gives off a gentle scent. When you need a moment of peace, light it in a dark room and pray.

    One of my favorites!

    This candle smells like the ocean! It smells so good! It's one of my favorite Corda Candle scents! Definitely give it a try! :)

    Beautiful Gifts

    Our organization has ordered Corda candles as gifts for individuals in other organizations. It's been wonderful to hear how each candle has been such a good choice for them and how it may have been used once received. We are thrilled with our purchases and hope to share these wonderful Corda Candles with individuals who may have never heard of them before.

    Beautifully scented candle. I will be buying more for gifts.

    High Praise

    The Mary, Stella Maris is a perfect scent. I gave it as a gift that was immediately illuminated, and the scent is just what I expected, soft florals with ocean air. Perfect! Deo gratias, Ave Maria!

    I received as a gift from a student and have ordered more for myself and for gifts. They last and stay so fresh and fragrant.
