St. Teresa of Avila | Mint + Eucalyptus + Sage
Sorry this has sold out! Sign up to get first dibs on the restock.
These soothing scents of mint, eucalyptus, and sage are inspired by St. Teresa of Avila, a mystic and a Doctor of the Church.
Behind the Inspiration
The founder of the Carmelite order, St. Teresa of Avila, experienced great physical suffering throughout her life, including being so ill when she was young that when she came out of a days-long coma, a grave had already been dug for her. She credits her recovery from the coma to the intercession of St. Joseph, for whom she later named her first convent.
The aroma from these scents is commonly used to soothe and treat migraines and other head ailments. Their clean, heavenly fragrances also call to mind Teresa's profound mystical life.
St. Teresa is the patron saint of headache sufferers and those who have suffered the loss of a parent. Her feast day is October 15.
St. Teresa of Avila, pray for us.

I gave it as a gift to a friend. She prayed the rosary while the candle was lit. I am so happy it brought her peace. Thank you!
We are so happy that the candle blessed your friend, Cynthia! Thanks for gifting CORDA and for the review! - the CORDA team
I bought these candles for my daughter and myself because we both get migraines. These candles are very soothing and great aromatherapy for headaches. Never disappointed with my purchases from Corda!
When I was studying "The Interior Castle" by St. Teresa of Avila, I learned of Corda Candles. I was delighted when I saw that Anna had a candle dedicated to St. Teresa. I immediately ordered one for myself and my four other spiritual companions. The smell of the candle is amazing and helps me to enter into a more peaceful frame of mind. My companions love it too.
I gave as gifts and they seem to like the scents but I don't think they have used yet
Beautiful candles with a lovely meaning behind the amazing scents. Will purchase more in future.
