Handmade Scented Candle - The Emperor
Scented candle THE EMPEROR
This candle is marked with number 4 of the Major Arcana – The Emperor. This archetype comprises the four main roles of a man: Father, Husband, Lover, Servant. The Emperor symbolizes authority, fertility, fatherhood, concern, authority, and the strength of a personality, however, at the same time The Emperor encompasses excessive control, demonstration of power, overly eager desire to take care of the surroundings, as well as waning or dwindled masculine energy. When overly strict, The Emperor might also turn into a dictator.
Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, together with The Emperor, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of The Emperor manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical aroma of cedar, saffron, ambergris, patchouli, and myrrh will help to harmonize the masculine energy and restore the necessary balance.
The fragrant Major Arcana candle is made exclusively from:
Natural soy wax that:
- Does not emit toxic chemical compounds when burning;
- Burns twice as long as ordinary candles;
- Does not leave any stains, the spills are easy to clean;
- Does not get hot, as it burns in lower temperature than paraffin, therefore the aroma of the Major Arcana candle emanates slowly;
- Because of the low burning temperature the aroma of the candle remains unchanged;
- Certified by OU Kosher agency as kosher.
We never use any other natural waxes, or “special blend” (e.g. palm wax), because we want to create a truly nature-friendly product that would help to preserve natural resources and would not harm the user in any way.
This candle has a cotton wick and is molded into a handmade porcelain container. Each container is unique, no two are the same. The cotton wick – the heart of the candle – ensures the consistent burning of the candle so that no unmelted wax remains on the walls of the container.
During the making of the candle, soy wax is melted in very low temperature, and then, as the wax starts cooling down, the mixture of aromatic oils is added, thus keeping the unique aroma unchanged. The aromatic candle is made in two stages: when the first layer of wax cools down completely, comes the second layer. This allows to avoid air bubbles in the candle, its surface becomes ideally smooth, and the candle’s burning duration becomes even longer.
The magical aroma of this candle and its recipe were created with the purpose of waking up and balancing the energies of a man – the Emperor who governs all spheres of life. The main notes supplement each other with aromatherapic properties and create a high-end fragrance pyramid where each scent has its place in harmony with other aromas.
Cedar: its fragrance has a soothing, invigorating and rejuvenating effect, gives a sense of comfort, therefore it is recommended for sufferers of irrational fears, aggression, hysteria, and anger. Cedar boosts leadership, helps to have faith in oneself, one’s strengths and abilities.
Saffron: an excellent tonic for both mind and body, may be used for reducing pain, treating infections, and stimulating heart rate. The Romans valued the aroma of saffron and considered it to be “gently soothing”, often compared by poets to the soft colors of sunrise or sunset.
Myrrh: The fragrance of myrrh helps to sort out thoughts, prevents from indulging into non-relevant details. This scent is particularly suitable for meditation, as it helps to ward off egocentric thoughts, restores the objectivity and adequacy of one’s psychological state, calms irritation, and improves sleep.
Patchouli: helps to survive and reduce grief, nourishes, invigorates, induces feelings of power, determination and self-confidence. Patchouli essential oil intensifies sensuality, helps to heal from frigidity and impotence. Patchouli essential oil creates an atmosphere of peacefulness, tranquility and love. Since ancient times patchouli has been believed to attract wealth.
Ambergris: it is one of the most-highly prized ingredients of perfume. The smell of ambergris is characterized by unique invigorating evening musk aroma with oriental notes. Ambergris has been long considered a symbol of luxury and power.

Repeatedly uttered affirmations help to overcome obstacles and achieve goals that seemed impossible.
