We are moving towards that time of year when the veil between the living and the dead, the known and the cosmic mystery becomes thin. I absolutely love this time of year and the extra spiritual activity, but sometimes it's nice to be a bit proactive when it comes to protecting yourself, your home and those within it from energetic/spiritual chaos.
I've spent 14 months creating these candles. I wanted to make sure all of the plant allies used within them have basked in the light and the dark of 13 Full Moons and 13 New Moons. I planted most of them by seed, watered them and watched them grow, some of them died, but most of them flourished. I spoke to them, whispered incantations. But mostly I listened. I listened to each of their unique songs, warnings and secrets. I was stung and pierced by many of their thorns. Broke out in many rashes by touching them wrong or touching them at all. Some of them didn't even want to be involved while some were very eager. I'm so happy with how they turned out. Even more beautiful than I imagined. And their energy is exactly what I was hoping for from the very beginning.
Some of the herbal and plant allies include, Agrimony, Galangel, Mugwort, Wormwood, Malabar, Bay Leaf, Peppercorn, Rosemary, Lemon Balm, Black Salt, Apple Seeds and Ash. Blended in organic beeswax and black activated charcoal. Dressed with Bay Leaf, Peppercorns, Black Salt, Mugwort and Wormwood. And finally, stuck with a needle. The needle represents banishing, protection, healing, control. The needle also represents a "pen" in the craft. You can speak your intention to the needle then stick it inside the candle "activating" the spell and banishing that desired.
*Working with needles is very powerful magick but can also be very dangerous. Please make sure to always keep out of the reach of animals and children. It is best to keep them locked away when not using. Simply do not take the chance.
This listing is for one (1) Banishing Votive fully dressed. Made from organic Beeswax, Herbs, Spices, a Needle and some Magick.
