Roots & Wings Candles

The Mission Soy Candle


Mission San Xavier del Bac is one of those landmarks that defines Tucson. Designed to serve members of the Tohono O'odham Nation and the broader Tucson community, the Mission was opened in 1797. 

This fragrance is a lovely masculine, powdery fragrance. Blended with palo santo, smoke and sandalwood - it's a gorgeous, balanced blend.
