The Scarab Beetle Candle
A rich woody fragrance with bergamot, cardamom and ginger lifted by exotic ylang leading to an intense heart of cedar and clove, with jasmin and water lily resting on a hard wood base of oak and sandalwood that has been enriched by the warm tropical balsam of benzoin, vanilla pod, patchouli and dried fig.
The scarab beetle represents the ancient Egyptians. Cedarwood was possibly the first oil to be extracted from a plant and the first record of cedarwood’s use was by ancient Sumerians and Egyptians. Sumerians would use the oil as the base for their paints and grind cobalt compounds in a mortar and pestle to produce a blue pigment. Egyptians used it for its preserving properties.
