A complex blend of pomegranate, wild figs and spice
Gift-giving is also an expression of art – and so, each candle in its amber vessel and lid is meticulously prepared before leaving our studio. Every candle is traditionally hand wrapped, pleating each fold of paper to create a fan at the top, and then securing it in tradition with our signature wax seal.
Saint Mary MacKillop
St. Mary Helen MacKillop was born 15 January 1842 Melbourne, Victoria Australia and died 8 August 1909.
At 18 she moved to Penola in South Australia to work as governess for a guaranteed income that she sent to her mother. There Mary met Father Julian Tenison Woods who shared her dream of educating the poor.
In 1866 they opened the first free Catholic School in Penola. One year later, Mary founded and became the leader of the first religious institute founded by an Australian – the congregation of the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart.
Mary dedicated her life to teaching all children from isolated rural communities especially the poor and marginalised. During her life, she established schools and welfare institutions across Australia. Mary was canonised in 2010.
Mary’s life is an inspiration of a person’s strength in speech, courage to uphold her beliefs and above all, her deep faith in the will of God.
