*Limited Edition* All Souls' Day | Clay + Stone + Stillness
**Limited Edition** Available only October 1 - November 30.
These somber scents of clay, stone, and stillness are inspired by the feast of All Souls' Day, observed on November 2.
Behind the Inspiration
"Memento mori" is Latin for "Remember death," sometimes also translated as "Remember you will die." This is a solemn reminder that one day we will stand in judgment for what we did and who we became. The scents of clay, stone, and stillness call to mind our burial and our waiting for Christ's return to raise the living and the dead.
Memento Mori is also a joyful reminder of the promise of the life to come: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" (Jn 3:16).
And finally, it is motivating, because keeping death before our eyes helps us strive to live a full and virtuous life while we can.

I have tried all (or maybe almost all, by now) of Corda’s scents via the samplers. This is one of my favorites, earthy, like rock (I didn’t know a candle could be that), grounding. I love it for remembrance candles at any time of year.
It is a lovely scent. a bit incense-y, a tiny bit floral. it is a calm scent without the "bite/sharpness" of something like grass or citrus. soft scent. Very nice. similar type of scent as fount of mercy, but different. well done!!
What a special candle. We can placed in the middle of a tray of stones and let it burn on Good Friday. It’s unique yet pleasant smell was a reminder to remain quiet and prayerful throughout the day.
I love the candles. The burn well and I love the smells.
Thanks for your review, Teresa, and I'm glad you are enjoying how they smell and burn! - Anna
I wasn't really sure what to expect from the scent of stone and stillness, but it is so relaxing. I lit it while trudging through my final projects and it made a much more peaceful ordeal.
Thanks for giving this candle a try, and I'm so glad it's been helpful as you worked! - Anna
I was really surprised at how much I loved this scent! I wasn’t sure what to expect but I love it and will be ordering it again.
I wasn't exactly sure what to expect of this candle, but Anna has done it again! I'd describe it as a pleasant, clean/earthy smell. The marriage of the two is utterly perfect for it's intent.
