I thought I would take the time to come and talk about something im really passionate about.....
CANDLES and why not all are equal. I have a lot of repeat customers for my candles from the beeswax to the votives and many special order as its all they use magickally which im so honoured by but I do occasionally get someone who asks why would I pay twice what I can get them for at supermarket. Its a fact I don't shy away from, yes my candles are more expensive. This is for a few reasons, one because they are either all natural beeswax or organic, gmo free soya wax which is way more expensive and hard to source compared to parafin or even cheap soya wax. Secondly I only use pure essential oils and natural ingredients. In one large Goddess Bless candle that uses half a bottle of pure sandalwood essential oil! Ouch but sooooo worth it lol!
Why not use fragrance oil? It's pure chemicals and we don't believe it's healthy to breathe or just as important my candles are for magickal use so what would the point be as fragrance oil has no usable vibration or connection to the flower, resin or tree.
Lastly is time, I don't just melt, mix and chuck some wax in tea lights, tins, moulds or throw together a beeswax candle. Below is two of six 100g candles I made today which took me 2.5 hours as I turn my kitchen into sacred space, charge each lot of wax, program each crystal, make the herb powder (which is on the smudge candle) with intent, charge the glitter (yes I go that far as if you are going to make something sacred I believe it should be 100%) and then add some sound from crystal singing bowls.
Some might say well is it worth it for what you make!? Maybe I AM crazy lol but I have been open for 11 years and I like to think and hope it's because people really appreciate my creations. I won't ever be rich but I am fullfilled! I just really wanted to share some of this as I know with internet shopping and ease of tools to the door sometimes objects can look flat on a screen but so much love is behind them here xxx
