*You love my Banishing Votive so much I decided to make a large version! The description was written near Samhain last year.
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 (in oil form) 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, Cayenne Peoper, 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 is desired.
This listing is for one large Banishing Candle that is approximately 4 1/2 inches tall and 3 1/2 inches tall. Its made from all natural beeswax and oils. This candle has needles in it so please be careful. There is a needle on the side for you to hand the triple goddess pendant from. Always burn on a fire safe plate away from pets and children.
