These Chrism candles are absolutely unbelievable and smell EXACTLY like the Chrism oil used for baptisms and priestly ordinations. You don't have to wait for a rare occasion to smell Chrism anymore! These are incredible. They smell like the church on Easter Vigil and are such a beautiful candle. I promise you will want 7 of them. These are a great gift for any priest, a gift for priests preparing for Ordination day!
About a month ago, I saw an image vividly in prayer, of our Lady of Guadalupe wrapping her mantle around a priest. He was holding Jesus, in the Eucharistic host, during the consecration. She was holding the priest so tenderly, with such gentle protection. Her mantle was safeguarding him from all evil. Our Lady of Guadalupe was gazing at her son in the Eucharist, with such tenderness and goodness. She was also holding her Son, who the priest had become, in persona Christi.
I desired to paint this image to show the beauty of the Eucharist, the tenderness of our Blessed Mother, and the goodness of our holy priests.
I wanted to place the image on Chrism scented candles as a reminder to priests of the grace that came, when their heads were anointed with oil, on their ordination day.
As everyone started moving their offices, schools and well entire lives into their homes, I thought so much about candles. I just thought how much of a need there was for a reminder of God and His light. I saw a need for space to be separated for prayer. And then loving the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts so so much, I knew I really wanted heart candles!! I pray that these candles help transform your home into a mini sanctuary. May these candles fill your home with the tenderness of Jesus’s love and the warmth of Mary’s presence.
These 100% soy wax candles have a lead free cotton wick and are a 9 oz pour. They measure 2.86” in diameter and are 3.5” in height. These candles were hand-poured by Kristina at @ivoryflamecandle. Her candles are all over my house and have always been my favorite. And now they can be all over your house! Her work is the absolute best. I was thinking of her so much as the quarantines began and events started to be canceled. I met Kristina at a vendor event and we have become close friends. She sells candles at different weekend farmer's markets and outside of that as a florist for weddings and large events. I knew most of her gigs would be canceled during this crazy time. I really wanted to support her little business, especially since there was such a need for her craft. I love her work more than anything and truly believe you will too! If you are interested in different scents or sizes, check Kristina out at @ivoryflamecandles on Instagram. I am so excited that she also is now on Etsy!!!
