________________________________________________

Hypatia of Alexandria was born sometime between 350-370 AD and was a prominent philosopher, mathematician, and astronomer. She was widely known for her wise counsel and is one of the first woman academics documented by history. Hypatia herself was also somewhat of a rarity in her time in that she was a Pagan who was tolerant of Christians. Unfortunately, she became a casualty in the political struggles between the bishop of Alexandria and the local Roman prefect when she was murdered by a mob of Christians in 415.

Despite her own Paganism, she was adopted by the Christian church and used as an inspiration for Saint Catherine of Alexandria. Over time, she has come to be a symbol of proto-feminism and an icon of the womens' rights movement.

Available in candle tin or glass tumbler format.

Tins: Our 8oz candle tin measures 3" wide by 2" deep, and holds approximately 7 oz of wax by weight. The wax is topped with an overspray of iridescent glitter. The candles burn for approximately 30-35 hours.

Glass tumblers: These candles measure 3" wide by 3.5" tall, and contain 9 oz of wax for a burn time of 40+ hours. They are topped with a candle-safe glittering overspray.

The glitter I use is safe for use in candles, and the ultrafine particles will not clog your wick.

Turnaround time for candles is 2 weeks. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may occasionally receive a professionally-printed label with a handwritten scent name, similar to what is used in the Secret Menu candles. We are experiencing delays from our label printing service, and would rather not hold up your orders. If you feel strongly about receiving a particular label, please email us at sihayaandcompany@gmail.com and we will do our best to accomodate your request.
