Associated with the fid (letter) Straif in the Celtic Druid sacred tree alphabet, BLACKTHORN (Prunus spinosa) is also known as Dark Crone of the Woods, Mother of the Woods and Wishing Thorn.
The Sidhe hold the BLACKTHORN as particularly sacred. BLACKTHORN faeries are called the Luantishees.
With dark twisted branches and long wicked thorns, the BLACKTHORN tree is perfectly suited to dark and protective magic, especially during the dark half of the year, during the waning Moon, and during Dark Moon esbats. Like in the fairytale Sleeping Beauty, the prick of a BLACKTHORN spike can easily turn septic and deadly.
Handcrafted with premium certified kosher soy wax and pure cotton wick, generously scented with the mystically magical aroma of Vanilla touched heartwood, this primitive Old Ways witch-crafted BLACKTHORN Mother of the Woods primitive misty brown and black soy pillar candle contains genuine Blackthorn bark and infused essential oil.
Candle measures 2x3".
Comes beautifully packaged.
BLACKTHORN Mother of the Woods is also available as pillar votives (see separate listing). Matching ritual oil is available in the Potions / Oils / Brew section of the shoppe.
