Candlelight is a common literary symbol for divine inspiration, just as soap often signifies spiritual cleansing and overflowing washing machines. Wax poetical with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of handcrafted soaps, candles, and gifts at My Father’s Light.
The assiduous wax-workers at My Father’s Light craft a veritable cornucopia of candles to illuminate the most light-forsaken corners of the home, in addition to a charming collection of soaps and artistic gifts. A sweet-smelling assortment of relaxing spa candles ($14.95 each) floats spirits up on soy clouds of bliss, and all-natural glycerin soaps ($4.95 each) sing aromatic operas in daytime showers. Creamy Chocolate Silk bath enhancers ($11.95/16 oz.) soak epidermises in a confectionary deluge of raw cocoa butter and bath salts, relaxing muscles sore from arm-wrestling vending machines.
Flavored lip balms ($3 each) top off the epidermal dessert with a moisturizing treat, and an eclectic host of nonfragrant crafts also warrants close perusal. Stunning silver jewelry, plates, earthenware candleholders, and pottery handcrafted by local artists make unique gifts for all ages. One-of-a-kind paintings speckle the shop’s walls, awaiting transportation to the nearest living room or novelty-sized wallet.
