Crushed Almond, Coconut and Vanilla

The month of May takes it names from Maia, who was in Greek mythology, the eldest daughter of seven nymphs of the Pleiades and daughter of Atlas, the Titan god. She lived alone in a cave near Mount Kyllene in Arcadia, where she secretly gave birth to her son, Hermes, the herald of the gods. Maia was an Earth goddess, a nurturer, nurse, and grandmother of magic, and she is often identified as “the nursing mother”. The goddess Maia was also a midwife, and symbolised the act of bringing new life into the world.

The Romans also had a goddess named Maia, and consequently the Greek goddess became conflated with the Roman Maia, who was a goddess of fertility, growth and of springtime.

Our Maia candle is luscious blend of crushed nutty almonds, creamy coconut and vanilla, finishing with gentle layered notes of sweet orange and tonka bean. It’s clean, airy and almost tropical. A lovely and warm addition to any home, wishing to capture the brightness of spring during the cold months.
