Memento Mori Lent Countdown Beeswax Candle

Mandarin, patchouli and cedarwood essential oils, orange, grapefruit, rosewood

Memento mori means “Remember your death.” Lent is a time to re-orient our lives toward Heaven by practicing prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Refreshing and uplifting citrus is an awakening reminder to return to your daily prayer resolutions and pursue holiness more intentionally. Rosewood symbolizes love, and ancient legend holds that a part of Christ’s cross was cedar wood. Mingled together, they remind us of Christ’s loving sacrifice and are an encouragement to carry our own daily crosses. Cross off a number each day either as a personal or a family countdown to Easter. (Remember: Sundays aren’t included in the 40 days of Lent!)

Memento Mori is a hand-crafted candle that uses only natural ingredients: pure beeswax, essential oils, and plant aromatic components. It features a premium crackling wooden wick. Beeswax candles are used in Catholic liturgies and are deeply symbolic: Beeswax symbolizes the pure flesh Christ received from his Virgin Mother, the wick symbolizes his soul, and the flame his divinity. Beeswax burns brighter and longer than any other wax and purifies the air as it burns by releasing negative ions that neutralize toxins, dust, mold, odor and pollen. Burn time for each 8 oz candle is 40+ hours.

Ideal for:
Personal or family daily prayer time in Lent
Friend-to-friend gift
Preparation for candidates or catechumen preparing to enter the Church or receive sacraments at Easter

Will ship mid-November.
