Why we love it: Collection of hand-made candles based on the 22 cards of the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck (Latin arcānus– mystery). These 22 cards can be interpreted as a person’s spiritual path from birth to perfection. The candle is marked with number 9 of the Major Arcana – The Hermit.
Head Note: Water Lily
Heart Note: Fig, Pine
Base Notes: Myrrh, Opium
This archetype holds the entire worldly wisdom which every one of us achieves differently by walking along the path of our lives and constantly improving. Parents taught us the main rules of life, the society tries to impose its moral code on us, but only by confronting ourselves in a moment of solitude and peace we can perceive our waymarks and thus find our path. The Hermit denotes original thinking, the courage to make mistakes in search of truth, the courage to face darkness when leaving the comfort zone, even when in risk to be considered eccentric. To finally find oneself it often is necessary to fall back, to move away from the crowd. Who knows, maybe the truth we find will eventually be seen by others as well?
