“Come blessed goddess, prudent starry bright. Come moony lamp with chaste and splendid light” - From the Orphic Hymn to the Moon.

There’s so much that could be said about the Moon and all that it does and represents. In astrology, the Moon is the second luminary in the sky, receiving the light from the Sun and beaming it back to us in its own lunar way that is soft and receptive. Ruling the zodiacal sign of Cancer, the Moon is watery and fertile and represents all aspects of our inner life. Always changing and showing us different sides of her face, she awakens us to our sensitivity and our own changing natures. The Moon has been associated with many different goddesses throughout the world, often changing names based on the phase. Some of the more well known Goddesses being Diana, Artemis, Selene, Hecate, and Coyolxauhqui. For this reason and because the Moon changes so much I decided to not focus on one particular deity, but centering it on the Moon itself, so that you can have flexibility in your use of the candle.

Some other associations with the moon are :

  • fertility, childbirth + child rearing

  • growth + development

  • nourishment + nurture

  • the inner realm of feeling

  • daily life + habits

  • the sacred feminine

  • adapting to change

  • honoring the cycles of life

  • menstruation

  • instincts + intuition

  • the dream realm + psychic experience

  • personal subconscious

Hand poured with 100% pure soy wax, dressed with mugwort , jasmine flowers , jasmine sambac, selenite, and moonstone. These particular herbs and minerals are all meaningful and sacred to the Moon and her significations. As with all intention candles, this one is never scented so that it doesn’t interfere with your ritual and you can choose other scents to include.

Intention candles can be used in any manner you feel drawn to. Often they are used in ritual, prayer, meditation or in ceremony but feel free to adapt it to what works for you. It can be burned as simply as during a bath or while writing/working. The most important part is your intention.

“Burning beeswax candles is said to have healing properties by producing negative ions,  purifying the air and improving one’s health, energy and mood.” These candles are left unscented due to the warm, rich scent of honey that the beeswax produces.
