Spell Candles

These are much smaller than other candles and burn for about 2 hours. Use in the same way as the 7 day jar candles by anointing them with oil and powder (or just oil, or even just burn them on their own). You can also carve names into these candles with a sharp knife or a pin. You can also add herbs to these candles by anointing with oil and them rolling them in herbs of your choice. As you anoint the candles focus on the goal you want to achieve. If candles contain herbs or any other additions, please watch carefully whilst burning as these may catch alight. Never leave any burning candles unattended. Burn out of reach of children and pets. Extinguish candles with a candle snuffer. Do not blow them out. Never use water to extinguish a candle.Ensure candles are placed at least 10cm / 4 inches apart and allow headroom above the candle for the heat to disperse. Ensure candles are burned away from flammable items. Candles should be burned away from other sources of heat such as television sets and away from direct sunlight. Candles should be burned in an area free from draughts. Trim wick to 1cm before lighting or relighting. If the candle smokes, extinguish and trim the wick. Remove all packaging. charms and labels before use. Use a suitable non-flammable holder. Ensure candles are burned in an upright position. To avoid damage to surfaces, always place candles and candle holders on a surface that will not be damaged by heat e.g. ceramic tiles or plates. Table mats are NOT suitable. Do not move candles when lit or the wax is still liquid.

Crystal Charged Larger Candles

These have a burn time of approx 12 hours and are used for longer spells that require devotion time. Each candle can be anointed with oils and powders with a petition paper underneath or name carved into the candle to create your spell, or simply burnt alone on your altar. Keep your wick short for less smoke.

Figure Image Candles

Carve the target’s name into the candle and anoint with a matching or relevant spell oil (and/or spell powder). Can be used singularly or in pairs or groups. If using more than one for attraction, have each candle facing each other with a gap and burn for an hour each day, moving them one step closer each day until on the final day of the burning they are touching. To burn more than one to separate, break up or push away, have each candle facing away from each other standing together, burn for one hour a day and then move them one step away from each other until the final day of burning they are far apart and still facing away from each other. If candles contain herbs or any other additions, please watch carefully whilst burning as these may catch alight. Never leave any burning candles unattended. Burn out of reach of children and pets. Extinguish candles with a candle snuffer.

Handmade Loose Incense

Using tongs, light a charcoal disc and place in a heatproof ceramic dish or bowl. Allow the disc to burn across and once the charcoal disc starts to turn a grey rather than black, add a small amount (a pinch) of your loose incense to the middle of the charcoal disc and allow the incense to smoulder and smoke. As you are preparing and burning the incense focus on the goal you want to achieve and surround yourself in the energy and cleansing smoke from the incense. Never leave lit incense or charcoal unattended. Keep away from children and pets. Burn in a heatproof holder and away from flammable items. Do not take internally or use on the skin.

Oils & Powders

You can use powders and oils in a number of ways. You can use both the matching oil and powder on a candle before it is burnt to aid the magical work. So for example, a few drops of come to oil and a sprinkling of come to me powder on a red spell candle or a 7 day come to me jar candle would aid that magical work for a come to me spell. Powders and oils can also be used inside as an ingredient and on the outside to feed mojo bags, gris gris bags and magical pouches. Powders can be sprinkled around your home or personal items that have some link to your magical work (for example, for workings for money, sprinkle in or around your purse) or they can be sprinkled around the intended persons home or items (for example, a crossing powder could be sprinkled around the home of someone you wish to cross). Oils can be used in the same way as powders as above but can also be added to an oil burner and burnt. Some of the oils do not smell fragranced as they are meant to be that way, but you can add an extra fragrance oil to the oil burner if you wish. Do not take internally or use on the skin.

Floor Washes, Vinegars & Waters

All of our floor washes, vinegars and waters can be used in the same way. You can either add them to a bowl of water and wash the outside of your home entrances, for example your front door, doorstep, window sills etc) or the can be flicked around a room on the inside to settle the vibrations and raise the energy in the home. As you use the water or wash focus your intent on the outcome. Please be warned that our waters, vinegars & floor washes may stain wood, some plastics, fabrics and carpets.  Do not take internally or use on the skin.

Mojo Bags

Your bag should not be seen or touched by anyone else apart from the person making it for you and yourself. If anyone else touches it or sees it once it has been made and blessed then the bag can just ‘stop working’. Feeding is just like any other feeding, you are giving nourishment to sustain the life of the mojo bag. You only need to feed your mojo bag once a week and can be fed by powder or oil (or a mixture of the two) and your own energy. Add the oil/powder to the outside of the bag (do not open the bag) and then hold it in both hands and concentrate hard on your intent. You will know when it is time to stop because the bag will feel charged or ‘full’ in your hands. Usually around 3-5 minutes.

Aura Sprays

Spray a few squirts of the aura spray around the room you would like to bless/cleanse. Allow yourself to feel relaxed, breathe deeply and let the spray cleanse and bless the entire room. Works in the same was as incense without all the mess! Do not take internally or use on the skin. Please be warned that our aura sprays may stain wood, some plastics, fabrics and carpets.  Do not take internally or use on the skin.

Roots

Roots are used in a variety of ways. Inside mojo bags, added to spell bottles, added to your handbag and carried etc. Do not take internally or use on the skin.

Herbs & Salts

Herbs can be used in spell pouches, mojo bags, candles, oils, incense, thrown at a targets property, used in letters and mail etc. Do not take internally or use on the skin.

Magical Honey

Our small jars of magical honey have not just been charged and blessed but have also had herbs, roots, petals, essential oils and metallic elements such as gold leaf, silver leaf etc, added to them. They are small enough to be portable and can be used in a variety of ways such as: Rub into and anoint a candle to dress a candle. Use as a standalone honey jar. Add the contents to your own honey jar. Add to your altar/shrine as an offering. Keep with you as an all round tool. Do not take internally or use on the skin.

Inks

Each ink is handmade and blessed to order and can be used in a variety of ways such as petition and spell writing, writing on charms, amulets and talismans, writing in grimoires, creating sigils and many more. You can use a fountain pen, quill or even a stick to dip into the ink and write. Pigments may settle during transit so please shake extremely well before use. Inks WILL stain.
