St. Joseph the Worker | Leather + Sawdust
These rugged scents of leather and sawdust are inspired by St. Joseph the Worker.
Behind the Inspiration
St. Joseph lovingly provided for his family through the work of his hands. Scripture tells us Jesus was "the carpenter's son" and Joseph is often depicted with the tools of his trade. The leather of his work apron and the sawdust from his cuttings inspired this candle.
He is the patron saint of the universal Church, workers, carpenters, fathers, travelers, and the dying, and his prayers are frequently invoked by those seeking employment and those trying to buy or sell a house. St. Joseph's feast day is May 1.
St. Joseph the Worker, pray for us.

I have tried all (or maybe almost all, by now) of Corda’s scents via the samplers. This is a favorite, light and lightly masculine, universally appealing. This is the scent I bought in full sizes as gifts for our parish priests.
We gave away Corda candles as sponsor gifts at our annual fundraiser. They far exceeded our expectations! Everyone agreed that both scents (St. Joseph & Our Lady of Guadalupe) smelled amazing! We highly recommend Corda!
I have to say I am a candle snob I am obsessed with candles have been my whole life. I have to say, these candles are by far ! the best !smelling best burning candles I have ever ever owned! Words cannot even describe the scents!
We are honored to hear this Amy. Thanks for supporting our small business and for taking a chance on the scents! We appreciate the review! - the CORDA team
I like the scent, an honor to Saint Joseph.
Thanks for the review Kevin! We are glad the scent reminds you of Saint Joseph! - the CORDA team
The sweetly earthy scents of this candle are soothing and gentle; they bring a calm peace wherever they are lit. Corda candles burn very clean and last a long time. The scents and the inspiration make them thoughtful gifts and good candles for lighting during devotions or other quiet times.
We are so happy you are enjoying Carpenter Shop and that it can add a sense of peace into your home. Thanks so much for the review Lucy! - the CORDA team
Love all of the candles I've gotten, and find the St. Joseph's candle to be especially warm and subtle scent. Love it! Just ordered several for gifts!

Thanks for the review and for gifting the candle Brenda! We hope the recipient loved it! - the CORDA team
The St. Joseph the Worker was a great gift for Father's Day during the year of St. Joseph. The smells are clearly inspired by the work of this saint. This candle would also make a great birthday, Christmas, or any time gift for any one who is dedicated to St. Joseph.
Thank you so much for the kind review and for gifting CORDA to people in your life Abby! We hope St. Joseph continues to bless your year! - the CORDA team
