Pillar Prayer Candle - The Evil Eye
Take a look (haha) at our newest Evil Eye prayer candle! This wonderful candle fills you with the aroma of pear, jasmine and vanilla. Paired with beautiful amber and musky sandalwood, this candle is an absolute dream.
The ‘evil eye’ is a malevolent curse, said to be cast by a powerful gaze. The traditional stylized eye of blue and white concentric circles is most commonly found in Mediterranean regions and Western Asia, dating back to Ancient Greece. This talisman, called a ‘nazar’ (from the Arabic for sight or surveillance), wards off the evil eye, or returns the negativity back to the caster. You can still see brightly painted boats all over the Mediterranean with eyes painted near the bow- an ancient tradition for protection and good health for fishermen that dates back to the Phoenicians!
