Candle of the year 2021



We created this candle of the year 2021 together with astrologer Palmyra Kelertiene, and we engraved the most important symbols of the year on the surface of the candle. According to the Star of Magicians, the year will be ruled by Saturn. In Chinese astrology the symbol of the year is the White Metal Ox. In the ancient Aryan (Zoroastrian) calendar the year of protection is the Horse. Also, there are engraved signs of the Scandinavian runes of old Futhark, symbolizing the year on the surface of the candle. While performing a simple ritual of meditations / affirmations, you may ask the symbols / totems to guard the year.  By purchasing this magical candle of 2021 as a gift, you may wish:

  • strength in meeting the challenges of the coming year
  • personal success in achieving your desires
  • to regain peace and to develop stability
  • to develop the strength of the spirit

Light the candle of the year to celebrate the traditional calendar New Year date, the Chinese New Year, and the ancient Aryan (Zoroastrian) Nowruz festival (New Year). This magical candle is expected to become the unseen mystical mentor of your 2021 year.

Main fragrance notes

Head note:

Heart note:

Base note:


The magic fragrance of this candle is based on old customs, traditions and the belief that every plant or aroma has its own magical purpose. It is like a witch recipe, where each plant and its aroma have a very important aromatherapic and magic function. The main notes supplement each other with aromatherapic properties and create a high-end fragrance pyramid where each scent has its place in harmony with other aromas.


Sage: belonging to the element of Air, this plant is under the protection of Jupiter. Its name is derived from Latin and means “healthy”. Ancient physicians Hippocrates, Dioscorides and others claimed that salvia is a holy plant, while in ancient Egypt and Rome, women drank the juice in order to conceive a child. Salvia could be gathered only by barefoot people clad in white tunics who had performed special rituals of purification, cleansing, and offering to the gods. Druids attributed even more important characteristics to salvia, as they considered that this plant was extremely potent and used it for predicting the future and communicating with the Otherworld.

Sandalwood: its aroma harmonizes and calms, helps to reduce stress and turmoil, is a perfect mood booster for people suffering from depression, fears, and everyday problems, and helps in cases of nervous breakdown or anxiety. Eastern cultures believe that this aroma is particularly attractive to various deities, thus sandalwood incense is oſten used during meditation. Sandalwood is used to build temples and sculptures of gods and prophets.

Myrrh: the Bible tells us a story of the Three Kings, who came to honor baby Jesus and brought him myrrh as one of the presents. Myrrh was once valued equally to gold and Greeks still consider it to be sacred. For approximately one-and-a-half thousand years, myrrh was one of the most valuable commodities in the world and thus Arab traders who sold incense were amongst the wealthiest people. Myrrh is the symbol of wealth, health, and prosperity. The old civilizations used the resin of myrrh-trees as perfume and incense, as well as in medicine, where wound ointment made of myrrh was greatly valued. Myrrh has antiseptic qualities; it stops inflammation and speeds up healing. The fragrance of myrrh helps to sort out thoughts and prevents from indulging into irrelevant details. This scent is particularly suitable for meditation, as it helps to ward off egocentric thoughts, restores objectivity and adequacy of one’s psychological state, calms irritation, and improves sleep.

The magic of home parfum
The magic of home parfum
Along with the home parfum, you will find rattan sticks with sola wood flowers in the box of home parfum. The parfum will go up the sticks as in the stems of flowers. These sola wood flowers will increase the surface that will spread the home parfum aroma at your home. The home parfum will evaporate for approximately 3-5 months. The spreading time of a home parfum can vary slightly, as it directly depends on room temperature, humidity, and other environmental changes. To feel the fresh fragrance again and again, be sure to flip the sticks regularly.
The art of incensing
The art of incensing
Our incense has no wooden stick, so we recommend to fill a small jar with a non-combustible material (such as salt or sand) that you can put in the incense stick, and when it burns, you will easily clean your incense holder you made by yourself. Package contains 5 sticks. Each stick burns approx. 30 – 40 minutes. The burning duration might differ depending on temperature, humidity and changes in the atmosphere. For a medium room, we recommend that you burn one-third part of one stick.
