16 oz soy candle

Deep in the dark underworld, Persephone ate six seeds. Knowing how pomegranates taste, we can imagine her longing for the most luxurious fruit, bursting with sweet jewels. This candle blends together her joy at tasting fruit which was once under the sun, with the knowledge that the dark months are not yet over. Persephone reminds us of the mixture of hope and despair, sweetness and bitterness, and the deeply personal and magical process of finding one's mettle in times of difficulty.

Fragranced with pomegranate bitters, blood orange, and lemon peel, Persephone's Pomegranates highlight the bitterness of even the sweetest fruits, while a touch of red currant hints at summer's future generosity. The ring of tightly packed garnets around the center wick mirrors the deep red of those which Persephone ate, reminding us that seeds are but rising jewels with the promise of tomorrow's sun.

There are two sigil phrases associated with this candle. One is written beneath the candle name, and reads as the line above: "Seeds are but rising jewels with the promise of tomorrow's sun." The second, written in symbolic font and on the lid of the candle, reads: "May we remember the secrets we learned as seeds ere we were sprouted."

This 16 oz reusable skull mason jar is evocative of Persephone's time in the underworld. When you're finished with your candle, you can drink your iced coffee or midnight margaritas out of it! To reuse the container, simply wash with hot water (alternately, you can melt remnants of the candle in the oven. Line an old baking sheet with wax paper and put the candle upside down on the sheet for 20 minutes on 180 F).

Persephone Skull Candle

Exquisitely beautiful candle with a lovely scent. Purchased to put on my recently deceased child's altar as an offering to Persephone/ancestors and I'm deeply grateful for the grief work it is supporting.

Can a scent change your life?!

I feel like this woodland candle company is the best one YET. This candle I want to pour into my blood stream to smell it ALL THE TIME. Literally unparalleled. Wasn’t going to let my husband light it because I wanted to save it forever but I’m so happy he did.
