Details

The ritual oil of miraculous power found by the Maccabees in the 2nd Temple of Jerusalem. Verdant olive flowering through consecrated incense. Might it last 8 days?

Chanukah is a huge peak of the year for Jewish kids—even if it’s been “Americanized.” We grow up hearing stories of badass warrior Jews, the Maccabees, who reclaimed the holy temple of Jerusalem after it was desecrated by the Seleucid kings in antiquity.

Notes:
Top: Citron, Laurel Leaf.
Heart: Cedar of Lebanon, Olive.
Base: Incense, Benjoin.

Though the story is foggy, it is believed that when the Maccabees went to relight their sacred lamp in the temple, there was only enough of the consecrated olive oil to last one night— they would need 8 days to make a fresh batch. But the oil miraculously lasted 8 days – the Maccabees devotion had been rewarded. I think about what that holy oil smelled like – I imagine the purest of floral olive—verdant green, with bright notes of fertile crescent citrus. This candle is a fantasy of that holy oil.

Directions

Trim wicks to 1/4" prior to each lighting. Place candle on heat resistant surface. Container will be hot when candle is lit and shortly thereafter. Allow candle to cool completely before moving. Keep candle away from drafts.

For best results, burn candle no less than 1 hour and no more than 4 hours at a time. Discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remains.

Warning:
Never leave a burning candle unattended. Burn within sight. Keep away from things that catch fire and out of reach of children and pets.
