Warm fires, cold winters, snow-dusted trees, and the time of going inward to warm your heart (or hearth) center. To celebrate with family, friends, and all manner of kin that we gather with at this sacred time of year. This is what inspires the specialty cauldron candle for Yule, the Winter Solstice.
Yule represents the rebirth of the Sun as he will now grow stronger and stronger as night wanes. On this sabbat, decorate your home with herbs and items that bring in light and life. Things that create warmth with family and friends, and fill your home with the renewed sun’s energy. Decorate your home from the doorways inward, to represent bringing the sun’s light in from outside. Once you feel you have created your sacred hearth space in honor of Yule, light your cauldron candle to ignite the spark of magick found only at this time of year.
The Winter Solstice, the official energetic shift to the cold season, and the longest night of the year. The tides of energy change as the days will once again begin to grow and overcome the night. For this holiday, what better way to protect and fill your home Yuletide energy and warmth than with the light of a cauldron candle?
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 time of year at hand.
In this case, it all revolves around Yule! Made with a perfect holiday blend of cinnamon, cedar, mistletoe, and peppermint.
You have the option of the candle being scented, as well. Should you choose it, the Yule scent blend will include frankincense, myrrh, pine, cedar, blue spruce, and peppermint.
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 holiday.
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 15 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 Yule to be disturbed by a house fire! Now be safe, and enjoy!*

Shipping is done through USPS at Priority and First Class Rates. After the processing time of 3-5 business days (though I ship orders out as quickly as possible), it should take the package no more than 1-4 business days to reach your home. This, of course, can vary during the holiday season. Please contact me if you have any questions about current processing times or need an estimate of how long it will take for your order to reach you. I cannot offer an exact time, but I can estimate as best as possible.
This product is made with soy wax, a common skin moisturizer. Many soy candles can be used as lotions or massage candles as the wax does not get hot enough to burn skin, and is known for its eco-friendly, skin-friendly, and moisturizing properties. HOWEVER, this candle is not recommended for that use. It is meant to be burned as a standard candle in the home, not to be used as a bath and body product due to the use of fragrance oils that are not considered skin safe in the scent. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will answer them.
Also, this candle contains a real, dried herbal mix in it. This means that the herbs can absolutely catch small fire, and this candle needs to be monitored. DO NOT LEAVE BURNING CANDLES UNATTENDED. Keep within view, and extinguish if leaving for more than a moment. Burn candles on a fire-safe surface, and place where it will not be knocked over by accident. We don’t need anyone’s day ruined by a fire!
Everything at From A Fable is crafted with allergies and sensitivities in mind. I aim to make sure that there are fun, body-loving products out there for people with difficulty finding bath and body products to use that do not cause negative reactions. I have extremely sensitive skin, normally needing to turn to free and clear products that seem to be harsher than need be on my body, but have discovered which ingredients can come together to form sensitivity-friendly recipes. If you have any questions about the ingredients of this product, do not hesitate to contact me via Etsy, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to address your concerns. I make it a point to know my products inside and out, and will be happy to put your mind at ease so you can enjoy luxurious bath and body experiences.

Please burn candles responsibly.
Burn candles for 1-1.5 hours for each inch in diameter. This is especially important for the first burn (to keep the candle from doing what is called “tunneling”). Allow the melt pool to reach the edge of the container before extinguishing, so that you get a chance to burn all of the wonderfully-smelling wax!
For pillar-style candles, vigilant awareness is required. Always burn on a fire-safe surface that is flat, even, and will not be bumped or shifted during burning. Also, it is common practice to burn pillars in a holder or on a dish of some sort to catch the melted wax that WILL DRIP DOWN if allowed to burn long enough. Please keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch long, and do not burn for more than 2-3 hours at a time for thinner pillars, 3-4 hours for thicker pillars. Never leave a burning candle unattended!!
Before lighting your candle, make sure the wick is trimmed to about 1/4 inch long. Keep debris out of your melt pool. If the flame is flickering, either the wick is too long or your candle is in a draft. Large flames will burn/consume your candle more quickly than a smaller, steadier flame will.
As for soaps and other bath and body, please read descriptions and ingredient lists if you are like me, and have sensitive skin. I test all soaps myself, and will always let you know in the descriptions which kind of fragrance or essential oils are used, which soap base they are made with, as well as any herbs or exfoliants that are added to the mix. I am open about all ingredients, as well as knowledgeable about the suppliers and their effects on the body. I welcome any questions or concerns about the products so that I may put them at ease and provide further information. Pay close attention to my ingredient lists, as I do not accept them for returns once they have been used!
