Pope Saint John Paul II was a life-long outdoorsman. As a parish priest, Karol Wojtyla was known for taking young people on hiking retreats, and for his love of kayaking and skiing. He once told a journalist, “I wish I could be out there somewhere in the mountains, racing down into a valley. It’s an extraordinary sensation.”
JPII is my favorite saint, and pine/wintery candles are my favorite, so this candle was a must for me!
The candle burns quite well and is a wonderful scent to have around, and not too overbearing--I will be getting more! As an added bonus, the jar and label are simple beauty that I appreciate.
This mix of wood and juniper berries evokes a nice, fresh Christmas tree that I thoroughly enjoy. It is relaxing and evokes the nativity for me.
I have been looking for a good smelling and nontoxic candle for awhile! So glad I purchased the “Be Not Afraid” candle! Smells just as if I was in the mountains with JP11!
