The Story behind the Sunflower Girl


The Greek water nymph, Clytie, fell in love with the Sun God called Apollo. She often gazed up at him and hoped that he would offer a look or a glance in her direction. He never did look upon her because Apollo was in love with someone else and had no interest in looking down at Clytie.

After a long time, Clytie realized that Apollo had no interest in her. It was a one sided and unrequited love that would never be reciprocated. Clytie became depressed at the thought that her love would never be returned. She refused to eat and drink and just stared forlornly at Apollo.

In time, the other Greek Gods felt sorry for Clytie. Eventually they decided to change her into a beautiful flower, a sunflower, as this was kinder than leaving her as she was.


Clytie the sunflower always looked towards Apollo, the Sun God. This was then how all sunflowers came to follow the path of the sun.

The Greek origin story of the sunflower is rather sad. Clytie was a lovesick water nymph who pined for someone and yearned for a love that she could never have. However, her sadness was transformed into the beautiful yellow color flower that is still with us today.


A beautiful glass jar presentation. It is not recommended to blow out your candle. Snuff your candle with a snuffer or you can use the metal lid of your candle. Blowing is thought to put the two elements of air and fire against each other which can disrupt the energies within your space.


All candles are handmade and therefor they are completely OOAK. This means that your candle may not look exactly like the candle pictured but they are all made with intent and we feel that the candle you recieve will indeed be the perfect candle for you!
