Medusa Candle - Vanilla, Cashmere & Smoke

$28.80
$32.00

A dark soy candle in honor of the powerful Goddess Medusa, cursed for her beauty and killed as a misunderstood monster.  Smells like abandoned devotion, a sweetness tainted.

Scent: Vanilla, Cashmere, Smoke

 

Meet Medusa: betrayed and abused despite devotion. turned to monster and hunted. Misrepresented, misunderstood, and forced in to role of monster.  Meduse was once a strikingly beautiful woman who served the Goddess Athena as a virgin priestess.  But Poseidon, the God of the Sea, fell in love with her and forced himself upon her.  Athena was furious at Medusa for betraying her oath of celibacy, and cursed her to live as a monster for the rest of her life.  Athena took away her beauty, twisting her face hideously, turning her beautiful hair into snakes and granting her the cursed power of turning anyone she looked upon into stone.  Eventually a hero named Perseus comes to slay Medusa, and does so by tricking her with a mirror and then cutting off her head.
