Sophie James The Beetle Candle
The Beetle – a rich woody fragrance with bergamot cardamom and ginger lifted by exotic ylang leading to an intense heart of cedar and clove, with jasmine and waterlily resting on a hard wood base of oak and sandalwood 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 it's preserving properties.
