Redemption Candle: Bob Marley Tribute
Our Redemption candle is a tribute to Reggae's most transcendent and iconic figure, Bob Marley who was the first Jamaican artist to achieve international superstardom, in the process introducing the music of his native island nation to the far-flung corners of the globe. We honor the depth and ever-lasting influence of his life and his legendary song, Redemption Song. Marley's music gave voice to the day-to-day struggles of the Jamaican experience, vividly capturing not only the plight of the country's impoverished and oppressed but also the devout spirituality that remains their source of strength. His songs of faith, devotion, and revolution created a legacy that continues to live on not only through the music of his extended family but also through generations of artists the world over touched by his genius.
The song urges listeners to "Emancipate yourself from mental slavery," because "None but ourselves can free our minds." These lines were taken from a speech given by Marcus Garvey at Menelik Hall in Sydney, Nova Scotia, during October 1937 and published in his Black Man magazine:
"We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is your only ruler, sovereign. The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind ..."
Our Mango and Coconut fragrance is a modern tropical fusion of fresh mango and creamy coconut milk. Fresh hints of pineapple and orange top notes meld with ripe mango and a hint of peach.
