I’m Back!

I was involved in a serious car accident back in August and so I haven’t been able to list new things in the shop or update here for a while. But I’m mending well now and can get back into my studio. So with no more ado:

Introducing animal spirit candles!

This project was born from my love of animals and draws from the mythology and symbolism associated with each to inspire the colors and scents.

Like all my candles, these are created using only pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils (no fragrance oils) and each is made to order. They come in resealable glass jars and are available in three size options.

The current offerings are:

Soy wax hand dyed gray-blue with a ½ inch wood wick, dusted with brown, dark blue, and iridescent silver glitters. Scented with a blend of wild Scotch pine, red thyme, black pepper, cedarwood, helichrysum, vanilla, and vetiver—a musky, woodsy scent. $9, 12, 15

Cat:dsc_0729 

Soy wax hand dyed bright orange-red with a ½ inch wood wick, dusted with red, burnt orange, and iridescent glitters. Scented with catnip, patchouli dark, helichrysum, myrrh, sweet orange, and vetiver—a sweet-and-musky scent that is both sensual and powerful. $9, 12, 15

Two New Egyptian/Kemetic Candles

Just listed today! Two new scented soy candles inspired by Ancient Egypt and the Kemetic pantheon.

Ta-Mera (The Beautiful Land):

DSC_0671

A blue candle scented with pure essential oils of neroli, Moroccan blue chamomile, thuja, sandalwood, and lavender spike—a sweet, fresh, slightly fruity scent. Ta-Mera, which translates as “the Beautiful Land,” was one of the names the Ancient Egyptians gave their homeland; this candle captures that loveliness and life-giving fertility of the Nile Valley. Dusted with blue, green, and gold glitters.

Netjer:

A sandy-colored candle scented with pure essential oils of neroli, frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh, and Moroccan blue chamomile—a complex, exotic scent. Inspired by the Egyptian/Kemetic pantheon of Gods. Dusted with blue, turquoise, red, and gold glitters.

Both candles come in sealable class jars and are available in my usual three sizes: 4 oz ($11), 7 oz ($14), and 11 oz ($17).

A Couple of New Candles!

It’s been kind of quiet around here the last couple of weeks since I’ve been researching and working on a lot of new products. They’ll be debuting over the next little while!

In the meantime, because I realized it’s been quite some time since I featured anything but jewelry here, I thought I’d show off some new candles! Just listed today, 5/9.

The Duat:

DSC_0617

Scented with frankincense, sandalwood, Moroccan blue chamomile, vanilla, and myrrh–a spicy, exotic scent evocative of growth and rebirth. Available in 4 oz., 7 oz., and 11 oz. sizes. $11-17

Inspired by the Duat, the Ancient Egyptian/Kemetic Afterlife realm. After death, a person was escorted by the God Anubis to The Weighing of the Heart, where the deceased person’s heart was tested against the weight of a feather in judgment. Those who passed were escorted to Osiris, the God of the dead and of rebirth, and resided after alongside the deities and spirits in the Duat.

Elfhame:

DSC_0622

Scented with cedarwood, bergamot, helichrysum, vanilla, vetiver–a bright sweet and floral scent. Available in 4 oz., 7 oz., and 11 oz. sizes. $11-17

Inspired by Elfhame, the Otherworldly home of the elves in Welsh and Briton folklore. It is a mysterious land of spirits that wayward mortals could sometimes enter, though often only by mistake and not without risk.

And you can view all my candles (most of which haven’t been featured on this blog before) in my etsy shop here.

A Candle For Spring

I originally made this candle just for myself and my own personal welcoming of spring but I loved it so much I wanted to offer it in my shop. In many mythologies and particularly in the lore of old Europe from which I drew my inspiration, springtime is a special time of rejuvenation, rebirth, and the arrival of new hope.

Green Awakening Candle:

DSC_0443_cropped

 

Vivid green soy wax with a 1/2 wooden wick. Scented with essential oils of rosemary, bergamot, lavender, rose, vetiver, and lime. Decorated with gold and green glitters. Like most of my other candles, this one is available in 4oz, 7oz, and 11oz sizes. $11-17

Happy springtime!
