Birthdate Candle: Shop the Limited Edition Survive Mercury Retrograde Candle

Birthdate Co.’s candles have long been on our top lists for their great scents and lovely designs (each one is tailored to, well, a specific birthday as well as all of its astrological connotations) – making them hugely popular to offer or treat. yourself. But it’s safe to say we’re here for the latest launch, which isn’t tied to a specific day but rather our least favorite planetary movement.

The company’s latest limited-edition candle is the Survive Mercury Retrograde Candle, now available in an all-new Bergamot Cardamom scent specially designed to calm you during the upcoming planetary flip, and you’re hearing about it here first. While the candle will be available on May 8 for most astrology aficionados, Underscored readers can exclusively purchase the candle from now on.

Savvy readers can exclusively purchase Birthdate Candle Co.’s latest limited-edition Survive Mercury Retrograde candle – in an earthy new scent of bergamot and cardamom – now.

Mercury’s retrograde of this period runs from May 10 to June 2, so the candle is a candle for the long burn over the next two weeks (over 45 hours to be exact). It’s hard to resist lighting it up, because it smells really good: the brand describes bergamot and cardamom as an earthy and woody mix to keep your feet on the ground, with a tangy touch perfect for spring. Plus, it’s made from the same blend of soy and coconut wax we love for a clean, non-toxic burn.

Birthdate Co.’s previous limited-edition candle — a soothing scent of lavender and vetiver — was released in January, in time for Mercury’s first retrograde of 2022. This time, in addition to a grounded scent designed by the brand’s master perfumers to invoke peace during this specific turbulent time, the candle features a reading of what this Mercury Retrograde means on the label. And once you burn it, you’ll have an ethereal surprise: a smoky quartz crystal meant to help you release your emotional baggage (if you subscribe to that sort of thing).

Just be sure to shop soon to get your good vibes in time for the downgrade. Once this candle sells out, it won’t come back.
