“Follow the drinkin’ gourd
Well the river bank makes a mighty good road
Dead trees will show you the way
Left foot, peg foot, travelin’ on
Follow the drinkin’ gourd”


From approximately 1810 to 1850, many Black slaves used the Big Dipper (also known as the Drinking Gourd) as a guide to finding the North Star (also known as Polaris) in the night sky. The star pointed North, which was critical in guiding many to Northern America to gain freedom.

Although the North Star is not the brightest star in the sky, it remains in the same spot in the northern sky all year long. Thus, the North Star was a reliable tool for navigation.

Introducing our Big Dipper soy candle, a perfect blend of the vastness of space and the comfort of home.

Made with soy wax, our candle burns cleanly and evenly, providing a long lasting and eco-friendly experience.
