The good thing about mercury retrograde? We have a temporary excuse for messed up travel plans, tech glitches and miscommunication—oh, and an excuse to light this Survive Mercury Retrograde candle from Birthdate Co., which not only smells amazing, but is also on sale for $42 (was $48).

If you've been feeling off lately, take solace in the fact that Mercury just went retrograde on August 23—and will stay that way until September 14. While not much can be done about the direction of the planets, the Survive Mercury Retrograde candle can provide a moment of serenity amid any turmoil with its soothing scent blend of lavender and sage with additional notes of basil, jasmine and peach. Consider it the perfect excuse to escape the chaos with a meditation session or at-home spa day.

The 8.5 ounce candle, housed in reusable glass, is made from a blend of all-natural soy and coconut wax with a 100 percent cotton wick. Plus, it has a burn-time of 45+ hours, so you can enjoy your home spa sanctuary for longer. The candle also has a carnelian crystal embedded in the wax, which will be revealed as it burns, and is intended to help rid your space of any negative energy and promote positivity all around.

Now through the end of mercury retrograde on September 14, you can get an additional 30 percent off a Survive Mercury Retrograde candle with the purchase of any Birthdate candle, using code MERCURY30. These candles sell out fast, so if you're in need of some retrograde relief, we don't suggest waiting.
