I’ve added quite a few brand new products to my new shop over the past week, including:
1. NINE new varieties of scented soy tea lights in an array of gorgeous fall colors, hand poured by me and dusted with glitter. All of these scents are perfect for bringing all of the delicious aromas of the fall season into your home and/or your shrine! Currently available: Pumpkin Pie, Amaretto & Cream, Vermont Maple, Rustic Woods & Rum, Cocoa Butter Cashmere, Sparkling Snowdrop, Cedar & Amber, Dragon’s Blood & Amber, and White Tea & Ginger. $5 per set of four tea lights.
2. Feminist Folk Saint Prayer Candles: embrace your feminist icons and role models by giving them a place of honor on your shrine or in your home! As with the other prayer candles, these can be optionally “dressed” with herbs, oils, glitter and a dose of mojo, or they can be shipped to you plain. So far I have candles for: Queen Cleopatra, Helen of Troy, Queen Jezebel, Queen Anne Boleyn, Queen Elizabeth Woodville, Lady Margaret Beaufort, Queen Elizabeth Tudor, Queen Catherine of Aragon, Boudicca, and Queen Isabella. I chose these ladies for the first batch because they all have personal significance for me, and they can be invoked for various magickal purposes and spiritual assistance (as noted in the individual item descriptions) much as the Christian saints can be. I will be adding to the list of available feminist folk saint candles as I am able to (a lot of it depends on whether I am able to find a public domain image that I like for the person in question), BUT if you’re dying for a candle to represent someone not on my list, placing a custom order is a great option! (See below.) Prayer candles are only $8 shipped plain, $12 dressed.
3. Custom orders for prayer candles! These are the same price as the prayer candles in my regular line-up, and the advantage to you is that you can order a candle for whomever you please! With Samhain just around the bend, the custom option is also a great opportunity to get a candle to honor loved ones (including pets) who have passed into spirit during the past year. You can send me a personal digital photo or image to put on a candle, you can find an image you like online via Google search, OR you can request that I find an image for you. If at all possible, I will choose a public domain image, which I will enhance digitally and print for the candle. (In this case, I reserve the right to offer the resulting candle as a regular item in my shop.) Alternately, we can decide to use a copyrighted image for your candle if you agree that the product is for personal use only and that you will not post pictures of the candle online.
And that’s about it for this week’s shop news!
