Celebrating a time when the season of winter is over, and light has reached an equilibrium with dark, comes a specialty cauldron-shaped candle for Ostara!
A specialty cauldron candle is accented with three different color wax drips in correspondence with the sabbat in particular, and the herb mix on top is much the same. Specially collected, mixed, and added on top of the candle itself to celebrate the day at hand. In this case, it all revolves around Ostara, also celebrated in the form of Easter, and referred to as the Spring Equinox. (Dates for each holiday vary, and do not align exactly). Ostara is an enchanted space-time outside of time where a magickal seam joins dark and light. From this moment on, the Sun God begins his seminal journey across the sky. His light and warmth overtake the darkness of Winter until his power peaks at Summer Solstice in June.
Ostara is a time of new fire and light. The light and dark are in perfect balance, but the light is growing and the Sun is about to burst forth with new energy and vitality. It is a season of fertility and growth. Of bringing new life and awakening abundance.
The herbs for Ostara are specially selected lavender, thyme, white willow bark, and rose hips.
You have the option of the candle being scented with oils to accentuate the herbs, as well. Should you choose it, the Ostara cauldron will be scented with lavender, rose, grapefruit, lemon, and cedar.
Each candle is made to order to ensure freshness and quality. These candles can be made and shipped out in 3-5 business days as each is made with special care for the corresponding sabbat.
If you need any further customization, do not hesitate to ask and I will accommodate as best I can! Large quantities should also message me before ordering for appropriate shipping times and adjusted pricing.
FAQ: I have received questions about the approximate size of this candle. Once made, it is roughly 3.5 x 3.25 x 3.5 inches (with slight variance due to the contrasting drips). Weight comes out at around 14 oz. (again, with only slight variation).
*PLEASE NOTE: This must be burned like a pillar candle. Meaning you need a safe area and non-flammable surface to burn it on. The herbs on top can, and most likely will, catch fire and burn. Never leave a burning candle unattended, and make sure to keep an eye on this candle in much the same way. We don't need anyone's Ostara to be disturbed by a house fire! Now be safe, and enjoy!*
