Throughout history, humanity has been dipping dried mullein stalks in beeswax and using the resulting "candles" or torches as a source of light and for support during a variety of rituals & ceremonies.
I have handcrafted these Witches Candles with Mullein stalks I hand-harvest during forest walks thru Arizona's Rim and Northern lands. The beeswax used, comes from a Northern Arizona beekeeper who has been lovingly caring for his bees for decades. The wax is raw and unfiltered; carrying with it the sweetest scent of honey and magick!
Likewise, the plant spirits used in adornment (Mugwort, Calendula, Chamomile, Rose petals, Wormwood) are either grown in the Sacred Smoke Herbals' medicine garden or organically cultivated on small family farms.
Bound to each Ancestor candle is a Hag Stone collected from the shores of the Treasure Coast. The Hag Stone should be unbound before burning. It can be worn as an amulet or used in magick workings. Hag stones offer powerful protection against evil spirits, the evil eye, and negative intentions.
When burned, these Ancestor candles are a tool for:
- banishing negative spiritual vibrations within the home
- connecting with the spirits of ancestors
- summoning spirits and supporting communication with the dead
- promoting psychic awareness
- necromancy rituals
- purifying the air within your sacred space
- thinning the veil between worlds
- calling in loving spirit nourishment
