The good thing about mercury retrograde? We have a temporary excuse for messed up travel plans, tech glitches and miscommunication—oh, and this Survive Mercury Retrograde candle just launched by Birthdate Co. (P.S. the entire Birthdate Co. website is up to 25 percent off right now with no code needed.)

If you've been feeling off the past few days, take solace in the fact that Mercury is currently retrograde—and prepare for it to stay that way until May 14th. 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 of lavender and sage with additional notes of basil, jasmine and peach.

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.

These candles sell out fast, so if you're in need of some retrograde relief, we don't suggest waiting.
