AB X CHANDRA 'Embalm' Candle
Walk into another time, a world full of ancient beliefs and Magick. When lit, this candle fills the room with a fresh herbaceous top note, followed by a warm aroma of clove and cinnamon with a lingering heart note of lavender, frankincense and cedar wood.
It is 1199. The Embalmer uses perfumes and oils to mummify his body for burial. Based on Egyptian traditions, thyme, lavender, peppermint, cedar, rose, almond oil, and aloe were blended together. Before the body could be buried, the embalmer first had to empty it of internal organs. The body was stuffed with pleasant-smelling spices, like cinnamon, to help give the body a more lifelike appearance. The pleasant scent of mint and frankincense was equated with holiness. This would ensure that King Richard the Lionheart would be welcomed into the afterlife, the incense providing him with a connection to God.
