Andal, born Kothai, was a Sangam-era Tamil saint-poet who existed as early as the 7th or 8th century. Her hair is depicted as being bunned to the side and adorned with jasmine flowers and elaborate jewellery; unique to ancient Tamil culture. She is credited with the literary works, Thiruppavai and Nachiar Tirumozhi, which are written in Tamil verse and still recited by devotees today during the winter festival season. As an infant, Kothai was found under a Thulasi tree within a temple garden and later thought to be a reincarnation of Goddess Bhudevi. She spent her youth worshipping Perumal, now known as Vishnu of the Hindu Patheon, with garlands made of thulasi leaves and flowers and later married Lord Ranganatha, a form of Vishnu. Our candle Andal, combines the aroma of tulsi, lime and florals to form a citrusy floral scent while paying homage to this iconic personality in Tamil religious history.
