Let the light of Gabriel shine upon you this Christmas.

 

It was St Gabriel Archangel who announced to the Virgin Mary that she had been chosen to bear the Son of God (Luke 1:27-38). Considered to be one of the angels closest to the throne of God and referred to as “the left hand of God”. Often depicted holding a Lily and associated with white copper light.

 

In creating this special Christmas Candle I made seven variations and no.7 burns brightly, infusing the air with the scent of an angel heralding good news. The biblical meaning of no.7 is the number of completeness and symbolises all positive and valuable matter in the universe, and is connected with seeing beyond the face and understanding the hidden truth.

 

The exquisite fragrance of Gabriel no.7 will fill the air with scented spice and the excited anticipation of the joy of Christmas.

little tree

by E. E. Cummings

 

little tree silent Christmas tree

you are so little

you are more like a flower

 

who found you in the green forest

and were you very sorry to come away?

see    I will comfort you

because you smell so sweetly

 

I will kiss your cool bark

and hug you safe and tight

just as your mother would,

only don’t be afraid

 

Look    spangles

that sleep all the year in a dark box

dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine,

the balls the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,

put up your little arms and I’ll give them all to you to hold

every finger shall have its ring

and there won’t be a single place ark or unhappy

 

then when you’re quite dressed

you’ll stand in the window for everyone to see

and how they’ll stare!

oh but you’ll be very proud

 

and my little sister and I will take hands

and looking up at our beautiful tree

we’ll dance and sing

“Noel Noel”
