Divine Mercy | Hyssop + Wood
Sorry this has sold out! Sign up to get first dibs on the restock.
**Limited Edition** Available only March 1 - April 31.
These redemptive scents of hyssop and wood are inspired by Divine Mercy. The feast of Divine Mercy, instituted by Pope St. John Paul II, is celebrated on the second Sunday of Easter, concluding the Octave of Easter. The candle's name "Fount of Mercy" is taken from the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, given by Our Lord to St. Maria Faustina.
Behind the Inspiration
Hyssop appears in the Old Testament multiple times and is often used for cleansing. In Psalm 51, the famous lament and cry for mercy, David begs God "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." The first time hyssop appears in the Bible is at the Passover, foreshadowing Christ's redemptive love on the Cross, as hyssop was used to spread the blood of the lamb upon the wooden doorposts.
And in the New Testament, in John's gospel, hyssop is present at the Crucifixion. When Jesus upon the wooden Cross cries out "I thirst," hyssop is used to give the Paschal Lamb sour wine. It is at this moment, right before he gives up his spirit to the Father, that Jesus cries out for us. And it was there at the Cross that Jesus's heart was pierced, from which blood and water gushed forth as a fount of mercy for us.

In both the old and new testaments of the Bible hyssop and wood are associated with God's mercy; in the Passover and The Passion of Christ. This scented candle is a wonderful way to reflect on His divine Mercy.

I have enjoyed CORDA candles so much that I purchased them as hostess gifts! Cannot wait to share the beautiful scents with my family and friends. Anna and her team were also super easy to work with in completing my bulk order. They communicated well and took special care to ensure all candles made it safely, even in 100 degree heat. Highly recommend any candle, but Divine Mercy and Compline are my favorites!
Thank you so much for the kind review Kathleen! We really enjoyed working with you and are so glad to hear that your friends and family loved the candles! Wishing you the best in the next chapter of your life! - the CORDA team
I have enjoyed several of the CORDA candles in the past that I received as gifts. Battle Cry was my favorite until I discovered Divine Mercy. Such a beautiful scent that is not overwhelming, and really makes my prayer space cozy and relaxed. The packaging was perfect and it shipped very quickly. Thank you, Anna, for all the beautiful work you do! Will definitely be a returning customer!

Divine Mercy | Hyssop + Wood
Thanks so much for the review Rosemarie! - the CORDA team
I originally bought this candle because it was the Divine Mercy candle, and I had no idea what to expect from a "hyssop + wood" candle, but I LOVE it! The scent is so soft and relaxing. I like very neutral and clean scents and this candle is both in a unique way. I love it and will be ordering another one. :)
We are so happy that you found this scent so refreshing and surprising! Glad you enjoy it Cristina! - the CORDA team
Corda candles have a unique twist on your traditional home candles. They not only smell lovely, but are so beautiful and elegant. Inspired by the Saints, they ignite all of our senses for worship. These candles remind me to pray as flame catches my attention in my office. Whatever Saint I have chosen to pray with, gives me hope that I’m praying with a friend and together petitioning the Lord for answered prayers.
I would also like to mention Anna is the sweetest. We are praying that God continues blessing Corda.
I got three candles to give away as gifts and they all smelled amazing. The ordering process, shipping and packaging were all perfect. Can’t wait to order more.
Thank you for gifting the candles Jamie-Lee! We really appreciate your feedback on the ordering process and enjoyed working with you. - the CORDA team
