These invigorating scents of citrus, morning dew, and juniper berry are inspired by Lauds.

Nuanced with notes of grapefruit, mandarin, juniper berry, mango, and sugared mint.

Behind the Inspiration
All through the day and night, the Divine Office, also known as the Liturgy of the Hours, is prayed by religious, priests, and faithful around the world for the whole Church. Morning Prayer, or Lauds, is the first office prayed after rising for the day.

Fresh dew and juniper berry bring to mind a peaceful sunrise, while bright citrus is energizing for the day ahead.

Jar candle: 6 oz with a 45 hour burn time | Tealight sampler: 3 oz total with a 18 hour burn time

Each candle is handcrafted with CORDA's proprietary coconut wax blend, custom phthalate-free fragrances blended in-house, and a cotton and paper wick primed with all-natural wax. Learn more about the ingredients here.

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

Lauds candles

I bought several Lauds candles as Christmas gifts for friends, and I received comments from them later on how much they liked the candle. They commented how the candle puts forth a scent in their homes even when unlit. These women pray, so I knew they would greatly appreciate the candles. I too really like the Lauds scent, but I do want to buy other scents. A friend gave me the Lauds candle, and it really enhances prayer time! We hope your business and ministry flourishes for you are now my go to for candles for I appreciate the care you take to not use toxic ingredients. May God bless you all for what you do!

Great gift!

I got one candle for my friend and one for my mother for Christmas and they were so blessed by them! Beautiful aesthetic label and look on the outside of the candle, well-balanced fragrance when burned, and inspirational mission and focus of the company as a whole. Would definitely recommend!

My Morning Routine

I get up at about 5:30 AM each morning, quietly making my way out of the bedroom so as not to wake my husband. I stop in the kitchen to make a cup of tea, then head to the living room to switch on the gas fireplace and light my Corda Lauds candle. I ordered it because the website said it was inspired by morning prayer….and once I’m comfortably seated, that’s what I do…begin Morning Prayer.

The candle’s aroma couldn’t be more perfect. It’s light and fresh and citrusy. Who could handle anything stronger at this time of the morning? Dare I say this has become my favorite part of the day?

But even if you’re not an early riser, I would recommend this particular scent for anybody who wants a light clean scent in their home. It may be my new favorite !!!!

Great candles!

I purchased Lauds and Battle Cry. They arrived quickly and well packaged. There was even a note explaining how to properly maintain my candles in order to get the most enjoyment out of them. I especially like the fragrance of Lauds. When I burn a lovingly handmade candle like these during my prayer time I seem to pray longer and I feel closer to God. Thank you Corda!

Wonderful candles!

I purchased the Lauds and Cloistered heart candles. Both are wonderful. The scents are very pleasant and not overwhelming. Very happy with my purchase!
