Hand-poured Candles || Mugwort
Handmade candles to light your way this winter, lovingly hand-poured by maker Hannah Martine, @the_moonlit_path...She is also one of our devoted customers. That's how we came to find her and open a special place here on the Of Earth & Salt site to share her work, the joy of herbal magic, candles, and support a sister who pours her heart into her craft the way we do. We hope you enjoy her candles & share them with your loved ones, especially in the dark days surrounding the winter solstice.
From the maker herself, a detailed description:
7.2 oz. Soy wax candle
High quality soy wax blend
No artificial fragrances
Hand-poured with infused herbal oils and essential oils of the plant. My intention is to create a clean burning candle that is close to nature. I hand make the herbal infused oils with organic and sustainably grown or wild harvested herbs. I'm also a botanical artist and create a watercolor of each plant for their label.
These candles are poured with prayer and intention to bring the power and spirit of the herb into your home. For centuries lighting a candle and the use of flame has invoked ritual and spirit into our lives. What better way than to bring the herb into our homes than through intention, prayer, and light ✨
✨ W H I T E S A G E ✨ White Sage has forever been a plant used for it's smoke~~ one of its most precious blessings is invoked by lighting it with flame and letting it burn in the space we need clearing, within our physical homes, within our busy minds, within our heavy hearts. What are you currently clearing out of your life? Personal beliefs, collective beliefs, certain persons, ideas around money, abundance, negativity, issues of self value? This sacred and precious herb has long been used to purify and bless spaces, people, and magical tools. Here in Ojai, most of us know what it is to crush a fresh leaf on a hike, bring the scent to our noses, and breathe it in, eyes closed.
**Let burn for 2-3 hours at a time, allowing wax to evenly pool in order to get a consistent burn down to the very bottom. Never leave unattended. Trim wick when flame gets high or smokey, 1/4" is preferred and allows longer burn time. I hand pour every candle, which creates uniqueness to every one, but I try to make them as consistent as possible!
