4 oz Candle - Proteus - The Old Man of the Sea - Greek God

Scented and charged with positive energy. A perfect candle offering for Proteus, a clean, fresh blend of sea breeze and cologne with a lot of water and ocean notes. These are embedded with rainbow fluorite (blue, purple, green) crystals and dried blue lotus flowers, both sacred to Proteus

Proteus, in Greek mythology, is the prophetic old man of the sea and shepherd of the sea’s flocks (e.g., seals). He was subject to the sea god Poseidon, whose dwelling place was either the island of Pharos, near the mouth of the Nile River, or the island of Karpathos, between Crete and Rhodes.

Proteus knew all things—past, present, and future—but disliked divulging what he knew. Those who wished to consult him had first to surprise and bind him during his noonday slumber. Even when caught he would try to escape by assuming all sorts of shapes. But if his captor held him fast, the god, at last, returned to his proper shape, gave the wished-for answer, and plunged into the sea. The word protean, one meaning of which is “changeable in shape or form,” is derived from Proteus.

Proteus was a primordial deity in Greek mythology, protector of the seas, rivers, and other bodies of water. He was one of the figures that Homer called Old Man of the Sea.

In a different myth, Aristaeus, son of Apollo and Cyrene, had beehives, but all of them suddenly died. He was then advised to go to Proteus and hold him in a similar fashion that Menelaus had done so that he would reveal what should happen next. Indeed, Aristaeus managed to capture Proteus, who then told him that the death of the bees was a punishment for causing the death of Eurydice. What he should now do was to sacrifice twelve animals to the gods, and return three days later. So he did, and upon his return, he found a swarm of bees in one of the animals, which he captured and took back home.


Scent: A very watery fragrance with notes of the ocean and sea breeze along with a hint of men's cologne
Accents: Blue, Green, and Purple Fluorite crystals and dried blue lotus flowers

✨Ozark Moons candles and wax melts are HAND-POURED with LOVE AND POSITIVE ENERGY and shipped directly from the OZARKS of Missouri in the heart of The United States✨

✨Each of our products is crafted individually in our home studio in our tiny home in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri and made to order using a unique custom blend of eco-friendly waxes – allowing for the maximum fragrance load possible and providing a long-lasting scent; that is earth (and lung) friendly!✨

Candle Instructions: Always keep wick trimmed back to under 1/4" (6.35mm) at all times, before and during burning. Do not burn for longer than 4 hours at a time. Discontinue use when the overall wax level falls to 1/4" (6mm) or less in the bottom of the container. Caution - the container can get scalding. Please burn on heatproof safe surfaces away from children and pets. Do not allow melted wax to contact skin as burns may occur.

Warnings: Never leave melting wax unattended - the wax, when melted, is scalding hot and is flammable. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Never add water or any foreign substance to your warmer bowl. Do not eat or ingest wax. Avoid skin contact with melted wax. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for your specific wax warmer.

DURING WARMER MONTHS, we can't guarantee that USPS will deliver your candles before they melt slightly. If this occurs, try putting the melts or candle into your refrigerator for a few minutes before opening or using your candle. If a lot melts or you have any other issues, please don't hesitate to contact us through Etsy messages with a photo of the item, and we will absolutely make it right with you!
