Troth Works - Blót Kyndills

A new line of dedicated candles is coming soon to WITCHCRAFTS Artisan Alchemy™ ~ Blót-Kyndills ~ for Heathen/Asatru sacred rituals ~ in honor of my Teutonic ancestors and as I myself continue to practice Troth (loyalty to the Ancestors).

This is very exciting for me, especially given the results of all of my DNA tests thus far which demonstrate to me just how extensive and deep my Teutonic roots truly are. My ancestral motherline is Swedish Saami-associated U5b, and when the full sequence mtDNA results come back, I'm very likely going to find that my subclade is U5b1b(1) - a very specific subclade of U5b more particularly associated with Saami ancestral motherline 1 (there are 2 major and 2 minor ancestral motherlines among the Saami). My autosomal DNA results are also heavily Swedish, Norweigian, Finnish, Germanic and just generally of broad Teutonic-Scandinavian stock. I do also have significant Celtic and Jewish ancestral genetic links, so I intend to remain "true" to all of my ancestors, and incorporate some Celtic and Hebrew elements into my own personal rites to greater or lesser degrees as I feel called to do at any particular moment in time. Nevertheless, my ancestral blood is most naturally and deeply Teutonic, and I am inclined to believe, and my DNA evidence supports this - that my Celtic and Jewish connections are admixtures of my Teutonic ancestors with the Celtic and and Jewish people they came into contact with throughout the ages, each brought "into the family" by the others, both in Europe and North Africa. More deeply, I also believe that the Celts, the Hebrews and the Teutons are all descendents of a very very ancient North African population of cro-magnon homo sapiens (also the ancestors of today's North African Berbers to whom I also have ancestral genetic links) and we are all connected together this way as well. So, I approach my personal eclectic rituals from this angle - from the mother people, where Teutonic, Celtic and Hebrew were once one people. Nameless, this prehistorical mother people is Teutonic, is Celtic, is Hebrew - all at once.

FRAU HOLLE Hel Hulda Earth Mother Goddess, Witch Queen, Matron of Spin Craft & Candlemaking for Old Norse Teutonic Sorcery, Spinning Spells

In Old Norse Teutonic shamanic tradition, Ancestor to all, FRAU HOLLE is the supreme and elder Earth Mother Goddess from whom all the Gods and Goddesses came, even Odin. Also known as Hel, Hulda and Holda, FRAU HOLLE is the Witch Queen, Matron of spinning and weaving, Mistress of Wyrdworking, Leader of the wild hunt, and Patroness of prophetic illumination. In the Teutonic mysteries, FRAU HOLLE (like Freyja) is a Goddess whose prophetic Priestesses are known as Volvas, women who work Seidr (witchcraft, seership and sorcery). The source of life power and wisdom, FRAU HOLLE bestows well-being, abundance, protection, and healing. Friday is her Holy Day, which begins on Thursday eve. The dark half of the year is sacred to this ancient Old Goddess, especially Yule. Riding the wind, FRAU HOLLE is a weather goddess - she creates life sustaining snowfalls, creates awesome whirlwinds, and nourishes all life with rainfall. The earliest known sources indicate that this all-powerful Spinning Goddess spins the Fates of both the Deities and Human Beings, indeed, she spins the Fates of everything through which moves the breath of Life. Her spinning faeries are often found near wells and water, usually by a "holey" stone that is a gateway to the Otherworld.

With loving affection, this beautiful Snow White and Ice Blue soy candle is created in honor of my own Patroness Goddess, FRAU HOLLE.

Handcrafted with premium certified kosher soy wax and pure cotton wick, hand poured and witch-crafted individually with focused magical intent, FRAU HOLLE is magically charged with Ice Quartz, topaz blue pebbles, genuine Holly leaves, Mistletoe, Applewood, Elder flowers and berries, Honey Milk and diamond dust. Generously scented with warm and wintry Sweet Vanilla Cream, this exquisitely lovely magical illuminator is adorned with hand dyed ribbon and an antiqued bronze spinning wheel hung on wrapped handspun ice blue baby camel and merino wool yarn knotted three times for the Goddess of Old Fates.

Measures 2.5 x 6"

Comes beautifully packaged.
