Candles for your star sign: Capricorn

19 December 14

With birth dates falling between 23 December and 20 January, Capricorns celebrate their birthdays in the coldest months. Despite this, Capricorns make warm and loyal friends and have soft hearts.

Capricorns are practical, independent minded and strong willed. They’re the kind of person who takes responsibility for a task (and finds it difficult to trust anyone else to take care of the details!).

Why a Capricorn Makes a Good Friend

Capricorns are loyal and devoted friends. Although they set very high standards for themselves, they take a much more generous attitude towards their friends, and aren’t afraid to show their caring side.

If you find yourself in distress, you can count on your Capricorn friend to make a plan to get you back on your feet again. But don’t let their independence and self-sufficiency fool you; Capricorns are notoriously hard on themselves, so they might need you to offer some words of reassurance from time –to-time to remind them not to take themselves so seriously.

Capricorns are self-contained; they’re unlikely to be needy or make too many demands on your time. However, Capricorns are usually highly driven and always seem to be going after something. They are the friend you can rely on to organise nights out and social events down to the tiniest detail and see to it that everything goes smoothly.

A Capricorn’s word is their bond and you’re likely to find they’re one of your most reliable friends; whenever you find yourself in a difficult situation, they’ll always be there to offer pithy advice and you can be sure that they’ll take your problems just as seriously as you do.

The Capricorn Selection

Burgundy scented candle is a great choice for a Capricorn. Soothing and warming, it provides a great foil for their headstrong personality.

Since they celebrate their birthday around Christmas and New Year, it’s highly probable that all the spicy, woody and berry scents we associate with the festive season will trigger happy memories. Our Christmas candle fragrance incorporates cinnamon, orange, nutmeg, clove, vanilla and spice. For a more unusual wintry twist try Noel. The essence of “Christmas tree” this fragrance is a unique blend of sandalwood, pine, oakmoss, vanilla and strawberry. It suits a Capricorns appreciation for complexity perfectly!

Speaking of complexity, Still is a stimulating blend of herbs, spices and woods that create depth and interest. Described as a “true spa fragrance”, its soothing, calming ingredients like lavender and chamomile are a reminder to take life a little easier, whilst geranium and eucalyptus provide just enough stimulation to keep your Capricorn intrigued.

Verbena and Clary Sage is a truly sparkling combination. As Capricorns love to rush around, getting things done, multi-tasking and generally impressing all their friends with their efficiency, they’ll appreciate this zingy fragrance. Clary Sage is renowned for instilling a sense of clarity, whilst citrusy verbena brings an uplifting boost to the energy levels, making this a great choice for those born under the sign of Capricorn.
