Samhain Candle // Offerings for the Beloved Dead // Spirit Communication // 35 hour burn ~ 6oz // comes with Velvet Bag
•Samhain, or Gaelic samhuinn meaning “summer’s end” marks that halfway point between autumn equinox and winter solstice~We also call it All Hallows, or sometimes All Souls Night~This time of the Year also marks the Celtic New Year~ The “veil between the worlds,” or the barrier separating the world of the living from the world of the dead, begins to thin and allows us to commune with our beloved dead and our ancestors~
•The Thinning Veil begins to show itself just after Mabon~ for this reason it brings a sense of comfort and sacredness to most who can feel it~ Samhain is and always has been a night to Honour our Ancestors and passed Loved ones~ Ask them for another year of blessings and Guidance and kindly leave out Food and Drink for them~ Some common offerings are their favorite foods and spirits~ It is also customary to leave out a pomegranate and eat 3 of the seeds for a bountiful New Year, but be advised that eating more than 3 will bring hardships in the coming year~
•Place your candle upon your Altar or near your offerings for your loved ones~ this will act as a beacon for them~ Because of the natural ingredients this candle is also suitable as offerings for the beloved dead.
•Your candle assists in the communication between you and your loved ones while also offering some protection from the unwanted visitor during the Thinning Veil. Carefully Witchcrafted with organic botanical ingredients that aid in the otherworldly communication and Protection.
•Blended with Natural Soy Wax, A Cotton Wick, Essential oils and Herbs of Birch, Thyme, Cinnamon, Wormwood, Rosemary, Anise, Orange, Tobacco, and Frankincense~ Black Tourmaline also rests in the jar. Please note there are herbs in the jar. They are left in the candle for you to do with as you wish~ Some chose to take them out, while others leave them in, and they can catch fire. Please do not leave your candle unattended.
Our Candles are made with Essential Oils only, no fragrance oils or dyes. They connect you directly to the plant allies that lend their magick to your workings.
•To further the Magick of your Candle and enhance the protection and communication qualities, use the wax as a solid perfume. After extinguishing your candle, dip your fingers in the wax and gently apply to your skin~ Feel the love and the connection continue~
•••••••Some of my Favorite Samhain Blessings•••••••
Dear Ancestors, known and unknown to me, I honour you~
You of my genetic inheritance, of evolution, whose stories hum in my veins and bones, and who stand behind me in an unending line back to first life~
My intellectual idols, and all wise teachers of old, whose words and deeds have influenced and inspired my culture and my life~
Ancient ones, you whose feet trod this sacred land and whose memories are stored within it~
Thank you for giving me the gift of existence,
Thank you for the love shown by those of you who shared your lives with mine~
I light this candle now, an offering of thanksgiving for you all~
May my life bring you honour this day and may my memory of you live ever on~
~Traditional Samhain Blessing~
May the ancestors deliver blessings on you and yours...
May the new year bear great fruits for you...
May your granted wishes be as many as the seeds in a pomegranate...
May the slide into darkness bring you light...
May the memories of what has been keep you strong for what is to be...
May this Samhain cleanse your heart, your soul, and your mind!
•Please always take care while working with the element of Fire~ Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets that may be curious~
