Sowilo Candles: Dedicated To The Story Of Sowilo
The land of Iceland is a magical, mysterious, and beautiful place. Picturesque mountains and silent volcanoes line the landscape. Iceland also happens to be a difficult place to live at times, mainly due to its cold climate. After all, you don’t get to see the glow of the Northern lights in warmer countries.
According to old Icelandic legends, there is a group of unusual people who live in Iceland’s mountains and caves. They are called the Hidden People. The hidden people were quite unlike the regular farmers of Iceland, who were always at a constant struggle with the cold climate of the land. Instead, the Hidden People were quite content, and also considered to be much, much more beautiful than the regular humans who resided in the country.
Sowilo was one of the Hidden People, and even by her people’s standards, she was considered to be astonishingly beautiful. One day, by sheer chance, she met a young Icelandic farmer. As fate would have it, it was love at first sight. They quickly became deeply involved with one another, but knew that they had to keep their love a secret. If anyone were to find out about their love, it would surely be a tragedy for both of them.
After a while, Sowilo became pregnant with the farmer’s children, and she gave birth to five elves. This posed a huge problem, since Sowilo and the farmer had to hide their children from both families. Sadly, this left only one option to poor Sowilo – to run away from the land of the Hidden People, and to stay away from the homes of the ugly farmers. Her lover was very saddened by this news, but he understood. They embraced one last time, and then parted ways.
For the rest of days, Sowilo traveled from place to place in Iceland, living in nature with her five elven children. After every place that she visited, Sowilo would leave a small fire, signaling to people that she enjoyed her stay there.
After a while, Sowilo’s human lover was despondent, and could not live without her. Nature’s magic helped him out, though. He was transformed into a whale, and whenever Sowilo stayed near the ocean, he would jump out of the water to see his beloved family. Together, they live as a happy family – even if they only reunite once in a while.

Our Sowilo candles are dedicated to the story of Sowilo, as well as the stories of everyone who lives a life that involves a long distance relationship. They are a perfect gift for lovers who do not live nearby, and are clean-burning and long-lasting. Sowilo would be proud!
