These rugged scents of leather and sawdust are inspired by St. Joseph the Worker.

Nuanced with notes of amber, cedarwood, lavender, bergamot, rosewood, and mint.

Behind the Inspiration
This just man was a courageous and strong husband, with an obedient and humble heart. Through the work of his hands, Joseph provided for the Holy Family. Scents of leather and sawdust recall the shop where he worked, and where Jesus and Mary would have visited him.

St. Joseph the Worker’s feast day is May 1.

Learn more about St. Joseph on our blog: Joseph: A Lesson in Bravery and Trust

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

Beautiful candles!

The Carpenter Shop scent smells great and just as described. Gave off the perfect amount of scent not over powering at all. I gave them to my husband for his office and he is pleased with the scent as well. The packing was very nice. I liked that the tea lights are in a clear container and not metal. Overall would buy again and would recommend them.

I got this is a gift for my mom because of her devotion to St Joseph. It was perfect for her and she loves it. I had to email after I placed my order and Anna was great in communicating with me.

Carpenter Shop is an earthy scent of leather and wood, exactly how I would think of St, Joseph's carpenter shop smelling. I am devoted to St, Joseph and this candle helps me to feel closer to him. I ordered from CORDA to support my parish's Right to Life ministry.

Fantastic candle. Scent is mild but inspirational. Much like I imagine St. Joseph was himself.

Beautiful and Humble Scent

I love St. Joseph and my grandfather had a wood shop and I love the beautiful imagery the scent of this candle brings me thinking of these amazing men working hard for their families with humility and love. Highly recommend! Ite ad Joseph! Go to St. Joseph he longs to be your spiritual guide.

Lovely, but lacking

I really love the smell of this candle and the thoughtfulness of the design, packaging, etc. I want to start by saying I have the St. Teresa of Avila candle and it smells amazing!! My only issue with this one is that it is not strongly scented. I had it lit for a few hours and had to put my nose directly over it to smell anything at all… a bit disappointing.
