St. Joseph the Worker | Leather + Sawdust

Regular price $21.50

These rugged scents of leather and sawdust are inspired by St. Joseph the Worker. He is the patron saint of the universal Church, workers, carpenters, fathers, travelers, and the dying, and his prayers are frequently invoked by those seeking employment and those trying to buy or sell a house. His feast day is May 1. 

Behind the Inspiration

St. Joseph lovingly provided for his family through the work of his hands. Scripture tells us Jesus was "the carpenter's son" and Joseph is often depicted with the tools of his trade. The leather of his work apron and the sawdust from his cuttings inspired this candle. 

St. Joseph the Worker, pray for us.

Great Gift for Father's Day!

The St. Joseph the Worker was a great gift for Father's Day during the year of St. Joseph. The smells are clearly inspired by the work of this saint. This candle would also make a great birthday, Christmas, or any time gift for any one who is dedicated to St. Joseph.

Happy Husband

Saint Joseph is a Saint whom I ask intervention for in my marriage, my work, our work.
I like that Corda candles help me to stay focused on inspiration from those that came before me.. My husband enjoys "Baytle Cry " Scent of Saint Michael....but prefers Saint Joseph's "carpenters shop" because of it's inconspicuous subtly.
Thank you Anna for your production of a pure candle. COCONUT OIL! HAND poured. Ship with the end in mind. ( stephan Covey). Personal touch. You are loved and prayed for!
Thank you for the dedication you display for the Faith of Catholicism.

St. Joseph the Worker Candle

What a beautiful candle. I bought 4 of them and gave all three away on the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker and kept one for myself. Its in my kitchen and the smell is nice. I also purchased Battle Cry, Hey who does need St. Michael on our side and I purchased Divine Mercy. Thank you so much and I am sure I will be ordering more in the near future. God bless you in your ministry.

Drawn to St. Joseph candle for Consecration to St. Joseph

I was intrigued by this candle. Then I decided it was necessary for the Consecration we were reading. I was not disappointed! Love the scent! Love that it's for St. Joseph, and love the carpenter shop scents. Beautiful!
