Our research into oils, flowers, roots, and herbalism has taken us to many interesting directions of the years. A wide range of products were offered by mail order catalogs during the 1920’s and 30’s based on American Folk Magic. Such formulas for everyday emotional and practical use such of ‘Love Attracting’ and ‘Money Drawing.’
Folk magic is a term that is used to describe a set of magical practices that is usually practiced by “common folk” or country dwellers, to put it simply. Sometimes folk magic incorporates religious practices and beliefs, and sometimes it has its own set of traditions. Most often found in the Appalachians and the New Orleans area, Folk magic can be found all across America and incorporates herbs and oils that were associated with different conditions in life. Cinnamon for drawing in money, roses for love, red peppers to remove an enemy from your property.
Since many of the ingredients and not usually used in candle making, there is the dilemma of how to get those important, magical ingredients into the candle. I take any herbs, roots, minerals, or other ingredients that are NOT an essential oil and place them in a stuffable tea bag. It is then sealed and placed in the melted wax to steep where the herbs and roots can mingle with the wax. Then, the essential oils are added and all ingredients are stirred together. For example, in my money drawing candle, there is actual MONEY steeped into the wax.
Each is colored slightly according to its purpose and sprinkled with a finishing touch of herbs on the top of each candle. Next, the jars are given a final cleaning and labeled. They are then taken to my altar in our sanctuary where they are blessed and smudged.
Our folk magic candles are made with 100% soy wax and real essential oils, incorporating the oils that were historically used for their unique and spiritual purposes. Conjure Shop hoodoo jar candles are meant for intention, prayer, spiritual, vigil, ritual, and spell work and have each been blessed for their intended use by our own Papa Gee. If it is not possible for you to leave a candle burning all the time, simply thank the candle before blowing it out then restate your intentions the next time you light it.
