Salves were ointments used to promote healing or protection and most of them claimed to have aphrodisiac properties. Move over, oysters!
The Salve candle is a blend of blood orange, bergamot, and grapefruit. It features base notes of woodsy Ylang Ylang to round out the scent with a refreshing, green feeling.
This transportive scent is poured into vintage amber glass. The ethereal glow of the candle’s flicker through the amber glass adds to the redolent ambiance.
The Apothecary is a line of candles inspired by patent medicines of the 1800s. Without having any proof to their claims, charlatans and faux “doctors” were able to travel from town to town selling their snake oils, nostrums, and miracle cure-alls. When making these candles, I looked at the actual ingredients that were used in those miracle nostrums and used them in this line. These candles’ “miracle claims” are obviously made in jest, but the scents are reminiscent of the potions of yore. Pleasant aromas are the only genuine claims this alchemist will make!
