Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo or, Carmel Mission as we call it today, is one of the historical anchor points of our community. It is arguably one of the most beautiful settings on the Monterey Peninsula and likely the most beautiful Mission in California. The Carmel Mission is also a National and State Historic Landmark.


Growing up in Carmel, the Mission always fascinated me. As a child, whenever I would visit the Mission, I distinctly remember the way it smelled. It smelled ancient, like being in a different world, in a different time. When I would go into the church itself, it smelled of wafting, sweet incence and old woods. I wanted this fragrance to reflect the mystery and the primative beauty of the Mission. 


With top notes of orange oil and camphor, sweet middle notes of vanilla bean, clove, patchouli and cedar, and grounding base notes of frankincense and myrrh.


Contains essential oils of clove leaf from Indonesia, patchouli from Indonesia, cedarwood from United States, Olibanum Resinoid from France, labdanum from Spain, black pepper from India, myrrh from Somalia, fir needle from Canada, orange from United States and Brazil, guaiacwood from Paraguay, and sage from Albania.

    OUR WAX: 

    Our non-toxic candles are made with virgin apricot and coconut waxes, with a miniscule amount of highly-refined, food grade parafin for stability.  100% vegan and cruelty-free.

    OUR WICK: 

    We use ethically sourced wooden wicks from the U.S.

  • Our wicks are made of natural woods and do require that they be trimmed to 1/8" every time the candle is lit. This will prevent any damage to the candle, and will avoid any smoke from occuring. Upon the first burn, please allow the entire surface of the candle to liquify, then extinguish and let cool completely. Never leave a burning candle unattended or burning for more than 4 hours. Keep away from drafts, children, pets, and all flammable materials.
