    Couple Sells Candle That Smells Like Jesus



    A South Dakota couple makes and markets candles they say smell like Jesus.

    You can find candles with just about every fragrance imaginable, from blueberry to ocean mist to hot apple pie.

    Now there's a candle that lets you experience the scent of Jesus, and they've been selling out by the case.

    "We see it as a ministry, " says Bob Tosterud, who together with his wife came up with the idea for the candle.

    Light up the candle called "His Essence" and its makers say you'll experience the fragrance of Christ.

    Bob Tosterud and wife Karen say the formula is all spelled out in Psalm 45.

    "It's a Messianic Psalm referring to when Christ returns and his garments will have the scent of myrrh, aloe and cassia," says Karen Tosterud.

    Wondering what that must smell like, Karen Tosterud ordered those oils, a combination that produces sort of a flowery, cinnamon aroma. Then she called on a friend who just happened to be a candle-maker.

    "And in October, we got our first batch of 768 candles. We had no idea how it would go," Karen Tosterud says.

    But once word got out they went through 10,000 candles.

    "It's the only one on the market and everyone tells us it's very unique and nothing like it," says Karen Tosterud.

    "We wanted people to be able to experience Christ in new ways and to be able to read a bible and have that scent and that candle as a reminder that he is with us all the time."

    "You can't see him and you can't touch him," says Bob Tosterud. "This is a situation where you may be able to sense him by smelling. And it provides a really new dimension to one's experience with Jesus."

    The candles never stay on the shelves for long. The Tosteruds say each one that goes out is like a ministry in itself.

    The candles sell for about $18. They are sold in about 150 stores around the country. Or you can order them online at www.hisessence.com.

    You can also call this phone number: 877-psalm-45.

    I'd say his feet were clean, but the rest of him smelled like a pig farm, on a hot day in South Dakota. Last I checked, there 'twernt no Speed Stick back in "da day." And he spent LOTS of time in the desert. Any questions?

    Yeah, even though he was the Son of God, given the conditions I would imagine Jesus didn't smell too rosary. I know, I know, bad joke.

    Actually not at all. The spin is going to be ripe for painting it as ridiculous, but it's a pretty cool idea if you ask me. They didn't say it smelled like Jesus the man, but the biblically described scent in the air that there would be when Christ returns. A major stretch if you don't believe it, but not so much of one if you do.

    Doubt I'd buy one, but you might catch me takin' a sniff in the mall. lol

    They're making a candle with the scent of a sweaty Jewish guy?
