The ID Soy Candle, Slow Burn Candle
This incredible and what some would consider outdated system was described in Freud’s structural theory of the mind that included the ID, Ego, and Superego.
He posited this entirely unconscious process, the ID, is governed by the pleasure principle. Frued stated that the goal of treatment was to make conscious what was repressed, so that “where ID was, there ego shall be.”
In line with the ID we blended a scent with aphrodisiac properties to allow you to get rowdy and also relax. The scent Oud + Ylang Ylang + Black Pepper + Vetiver.
Although in many ways this theory has been retired, contemporary neuroscience often supports the notion that deep unconscious mental organization is actually quite linked to Freud’s concept of the ID. (LeDoux, 1996; Panksepp, 1999)
Our blend of essential oils, soy wax, and all-natural, charcoal-based dye comes in a recycled black glass jar. Our soy, slow burn candles are hand poured in West Hollywood.
