Tierra Meschica


Tierra Meschica is inspired by a mystic journey through Mexico. The sacred aroma of burning copal transports us to a magical place rich in culture and spirituality.

The limited-edition clay vessel is handcrafted by Oaxacan ceramicist, Iohan Figueroa. Inspired by Oaxaca, the vessel takes the shape of a copalero and pays homage to the Aztec goddess Mayahuel with it's whimsical nod to the rabbit. Only 20 vessels were made.

The soy candle is hand-poured in Salem, Oregon by Ana and Refugio Jimenez, founders of Arcane Chemistry and features Copal as the top note and Mexican Juniper as the base note. 

Burn Time: 15 hours (approximately)

Size: 3"W x 2.5"H / 3.5oz


  • 100% soy wax that is grown in the USA
  • Domestically sourced cotton wicks
  • 100% essential oils

Burning Instructions

  • Never leave a candle unattended.
  • On the first burn, allow the melt pool to reach the edges of the jar. Doing this will help burn the candle more evenly and prevent "tunneling." Please remember to always trim the wick to a 1/4 of inch between each burn.
  • Discontinue use once there is only 1/2" inch of wax left
