Wooded to the Brink of the Sea Candle
“Wednesday, the sixth of September, the winds coming east north east, a fine small gale, we loosed from Plymouth, having been kindly entertained and courteously used by divers friends there dwelling, and after many difficulties in boisterous storms, at length, by God's providence, upon the ninth of November following, by break of the day we espied land which was deemed to be Cape Cod, and so afterward it proved. And the appearance of it much comforted us, especially seeing so goodly a land, and wooded to the brink of the sea. It caused us to rejoice together, and praise God that had given us once again to see land.”
This passage from Mourt’s Relation, a journal of the first year in Plymouth Colony, relates Mayflower’s departure from England and arrival at Cape Cod, where the passengers marveled at the natural forest. The fragrance of Wooded to the Brink of the Sea evokes greenery and salty ocean air. Hand blended and poured at Plimoth Plantation; candle lid made from Mayflower restoration wood.
Notes: Herbs, Daffodil, Moss & Cedar Wood.
