LIMITED EDITION

Our Limited Edition Día de los Muertos Candle is an homage to the traditional Mexican Day of the Dead holiday where families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for celebration. A blend of Mesoamerican ritual, Spanish culture, and European religion, the holiday is celebrated each year from October 31- November 2.

During this brief period, the souls of the dead awaken and return to the living world to feast, drink, dance and play music with their loved ones. In turn, the living family members treat the deceased as honored guests in their celebrations, and leave offerings for the deceased at gravesites or on ofrendas (altars) built in their homes. Ofrendas are decorated with candles, bright marigolds and burning copal incense, alongside food and other offerings. 

This Limited Edition candle is scented with bright Aztec Marigold and earthy Copal resin - meant to honor the essence of the ofrenda, it's fragrance and meaning. Copal resin incense is burned on the altar to elevate one's prayers and to purify the souls of the returning spirits. Marigolds, often referred to as "flowers of the dead", are believed to attract the souls of the deceased with their vibrant color and beautiful scent, and are placed on the altars, around graves, and even laid down as a physical path for the souls to follow on their return.

Each lusciously scented soy candle is hand-poured into a luxury black glass tumbler, adorned with a traditional Día de los Muertos sugar skull and packaged into a 100% recyclable, eco-friendly gift box. Included with the candle will be one stick of Palo Santo (holy wood) and one bundle of white sage to burn on your own ofrenda.
