Getting to know the items in your candle will not only help you to focus your energies when you use them but also allows you to go beyond the suggested use. When you are aware of the energies and associations the crystals and herbs have, you may focus on one or several of the items in the candle through meditation and visualization to bring forth that specific energy. This allows you to use the candle for any purpose within the realm I have created for you. This allows you to truly focus your candle on your intent.

White Sage is an essential and sacred tool for cleansing both yourself, your aura and your space. For thousands of years, white sage has been believed to be a blessed, sacred, cleansing, cathartic, purifying, and protective plant. It has the strength to rid you and your space of negative energies that might be blocking your ability to receive good fortune, luck and success so I have chosen to include it in this candle as a founation.
Deities: Zeus, Jupiter, Virgin Mary
Cedar trees have been revered for their spiritual significance for thousands of years. Its wood was used for the doors of sacred temples and burned in cleansing ceremonies for purification. Cedar has a long history of use in indigenous sweat lodge ceremonies and the tree was thought to house important gods and to be an entrance to higher spiritual realms.
Cedar is first and foremost a medicine of protection. It is used to cleanse a home when first moving in, inviting unwanted spirits to leave and protecting a person, place or object from unwanted influences. The smoke of burning Cedar is said to is said to attract the good spirits and eliminate negative energies.
The Cedar is also one of the four sacred plants of the indigenous American Medicine Wheel and represents the Southern direction. The other plants contained in the Medicine Wheel are: White Sage representing the West, Sweetgrass representing the North, and Tobacco representing the East.
Deities: Lone Man, Mother Corn
Rosemary helps support memory and dispels jealousy. It is used for dream work and delving deeper into your past lives. It can keep away nightmares and other unwanted nighttime visitations. It can be used to symbolize love and loyalty. Rosemary can aid with healing, and to fumigate a home where there has been a long illness, to drive out the negativity associated with disease. It can also be used to drive negativity away from any space, object or person.
Deities: Hebe, Aphrodite and the Virgin Mary
Cinnamon It can be burned to sanctify an area or object, to increase the spiritual “mood”, to aid in healing spells or in healing in general (this is appropriate for burning right in the sick room). The oil may be used to anoint objects during blessing and protection rituals. (Be sure to dilute this heavily with a carrier if it’s going to touch your skin!).
Saining practices are important but why did Scottish folk magic practitioners carry them out? Saining practices, similar to smudging, were carried out primarily to remove influences of negative spirits on people, places, objects, and livestock. Note, these aren’t “energy cleansing” practices it also doesn’t equate to removing sin.
Purification practices are there to remove influences from being overlooked or to remove unwanted spirits influencing the person or the environment. Carrying out Saining helps us to uphold principles of living within the right order of things, alongside this is being diligent in your work, hospitality, keeping an orderly house and being true to our word.
A beautiful tin presentation; easy to take on the go and for small alter areas. Snuff with the metal lid if needed. It is not recommended to blow out 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!
Sometimes certain crystals and herbs are not available. The listed are just examples of possible crystals that may be present in your candle (mostly they will all be included and noted if not). We choose the best crystals and herbs to adorn your candle according to the intention of the candle and what is currently available. Many of the herbs are grown by me in my magickal garden or locally by a friends.
