Medusa Beeswax Candle

Medusa Beeswax Candle

Invoke the Dark Goddess of feminine power and protection.

Medusa is well-known legend in Hellenic lore. Telling of a beautiful woman transformed into a gorgon: a hideous monster with venomous serpents for hair. The idea of encountering her was terrifying to the likes of men, for a single glance from her wide, yellow eyes would turn one to stone in an instant. 
Medusa is an intimidating presence.  Once worshiped as a goddess in ancient Rome, Medusa may be used for her guidance in the ways of protection and fierce divine femininity. 
A powerful figure commanding respect in times of adversity, the gorgon is not an entity to be trifled with.
Use this candle in a ritual to ask for Medusa's power for protection and direct vengeance towards a target. 

Over 500grams of beeswax this candle is large and burns for many hours. 
Melt the bottom of the candle a little and adhere to a heat proof plate, dish or candle holder. 
Do not place directly onto furniture while burning. 
Burn the candle clear of any overhanging curtains or furniture. 

Candles remain an important part of our spiritual practice and witchcraft.
Their use allows us to perform sorcery indoors instead of a ritual bonfire that would accompany many outdoor magical workings.
When ancient tablets and medieval grimoires speak of “wax,” they are referring to beeswax.  There is something about it that stirs our ancient souls.   When burned, beeswax candles burn clean and bright and have a light, pleasant scent of honey. Slavic peoples believed that the honey aroma has a strong healing effect – strengthening the soul and immunising the body, protecting people.  

Beeswax candles are used in traditional folk witchcraft making them perfect for candle magick as they carry a connection to Nature and its Elements. They may be rolled in ritual oil and/or milled herbs, or both. 

Magickally speaking, all stinging insects are considered creatures of Mars. 
They are warrior spirits. They travel in armies and are willing to die to protect the nest.  Bees have a sacred association with the Mother Goddess. Bees are matriarchal, and the products they make are sweet and nourishing. It is not for nothing that honey has been called the “food of the gods.”  Images of a bee goddess have been found in ancient art in the Near East and Aegean regions. The title “Melissa” means Queen Bee, and was at various times applied to Cybele, Aphrodite, Demeter, and Artemis. Her priestesses were known as “melissae” or “meliae” (honey-nymphs).
