Loved it


My new favorite gift item.

I purchased one large Asher and three medium candles of other fragrances. I've used the Asher as a lovely scented candle while bathing and then enjoyed moisturizing with the warm and soothing product. Although a small wooden tool is included for scooping the product from its vessel, the wax never becomes too hot to simply swipe some up with your finger. The product, when applied feels like a combination of body lotion and massage oil; however, it quickly absorbs into your skin and the scent is light enough that other fragrances could be applied. I am so pleased with this product I just ordered six more!

I ordered archetype rising and I love it. The scent is great, it arrived immediately and I couldn't be more pleased. I will definitely be buying more! But now that I know how much I love it, I'll get the larger size next time.


Great Scents

I only reason it is not a 5 is because I am not thrilled with the scent I selected. It is not bad, just not what I was expecting. I will try another scent because I love the concept!

The Objects with Purpose Story

Objects with Purpose - Natural, Wearable Candle

Awaken the Senses

Ianthe Mauro’s love for candles dates back to her school days in Boston in the 1970s, when her teacher would light a candle each day and encourage students to focus on the beauty and strength of its flame. Ianthe continued to make candles a part of her daily life, but she worried about the toxic contents of some varieties. She was inspired to create her own line of nontoxic candles, with a unique twist: Ianthe’s candles are designed to be worn.

Each of her candles is hand-poured with a clean-burning wax that contains organic coconut, apricot, and shea butters, along with a proprietary blend of
essential oils for fragrance. The wax burns at a low temperature, so you can use it as soothing body butter when it’s warm (perfect for moisturizing and massages) and a solid perfume when it’s cool. Her scents are sophisticated and appealing, including the soothing Fight or Flight, laced with jasmine and vanilla; vibrant Dahlia, with rose and lychee; Gifted, which combines white tea, fig, and tobacco in an alluring blend; and Archetype Rising, a meld of peony, cucumber, and firewood. All of the elements—from the organic butters, essential oils, and cotton wicks to the glass containers and reusable muslin packaging—come from U.S. suppliers.

We’re accustomed to lighting candles to add ambiance to a room. Ianthe’s company, Objects With Purpose, takes the candle-lighting experience even further. You can light a candle, massage the warm wax into your skin, and enjoy the scent throughout the day. For yourself or someone special, it’s a thoughtful, positive gift for the senses.
