“All my life,” she said, “I have been told ‘go’ and ‘come.’ I am told how I will live, and I am told how I must die. I must be a man’s servant and a mare for his pleasure, or I must hide myself behind walls and surrender my flesh to a cold, silent god. I would walk into the jaws of hell itself, if it were a path of my own choosing. I would rather die tomorrow in the forest than live a hundred years of the life appointed me.”
Vasya, a candle inspired by The Bear and the Nightingale.
The candle is scented after Pine and Woodsmoke.
Scent strength: strong.
The candle comes in a straight-sided glass jar, with a gold lid.
All candles are hand-made and hand-poured in small batches. Variations in scent or color are possible. Made with 100% soy wax. Soy wax is environmentally friendly with a clean burn.

CANDLE CARE: Trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting. Always allow the candle to burn long enough for the wax pool to reach the sides of the jar, this prevents tunneling. Don't burn the candle for longer than 4 hours at a time.
