Need a Candle..try the new Jesus scent..ahhhh

Candles that "Smell Like Jesus"?


According to WACU television in Philadelphia, a South Dakota couple has recently marketed a line of candles which they claim “smell like Jesus.” Scented candles have long been popular, and have increasingly been offered in more and more unusual scents such as lavender spice, chocolate chip cookie, apple pie, and so forth.

But now, buyers have the option of filling their homes with the fragrance of Christ.“We see it as a ministry,” says Bob Tosterud. Along with his wife Karen, he got the idea for the scented candle after reading Psalm 45:7-8, “Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions; your robes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia.” Karen explains that this is a “Messianic psalm referring to when Christ returns.” But she wondered what the fragrance of myrrh mixed with aloes and cassia might smell like, so she ordered those oils and mixed her first batch with a friend who also made candles.

After the candles went on sale they were an instant hit. Karen suggests, “It’s the only one on the market and everyone tells us it’s very unique.” She also added, “We wanted people to be able to experience Christ in new ways and to be able to read a Bible and have that scent and that candle as a reminder that he is with us all the time.” Her husband Bob commented, “You can’t see him and you can’t touch him [but]...this is a situation where you may be able to sense him by smelling. And it provides a really new dimension to one’s experience with Jesus.” The candles sell for about $18 and can be ordered at Bob and Karen's website, as well as in numerous stores throughout the country.

That's hilarious... as providence would have it, I just read Psalm 45 this morning... funny that it didn't occur to me to make these candles... I don't know what's wrong with me. :)
