One black taper candle which has been dressed and anointed with the herbs and sacred ingredients of the witches arte, after being exhumed from its burial at the threshold of an ancient churchyard (the middling ground between the mundane and the otherworld) wrapped in a raw silk winding sheet from full to new moon. It is first anointed with a macerated oil blend of fly agaric and hellebore, before being dressed with hallowed herbs, flowers, bones and earth, powdered with pestle and mortar in the Old One’s name. This candle is imbued with the fine grains of mullein, wormwood, myrrh, yew, graveyard earth, human bone, toad bone and earth from the fertile plot of the crossroads, before being dipped and sealed in the seasoned cauldron of black wax.
This candle serves as illumination for the wild, the dark, the betwixt and between, the world beyond the corporeal. It is an offering to the Old God of witches, given in return for gnosis and occult wisdom. To be burned in workings concerned with the liminal, boundary crossing, hedge riding, walking between worlds and communing with faery, spirits of the land, the dead, and the wild adversary. The candle is white inside, representing the duality of night and day, the dark and light of twilight and the in between.

Caution: Herbal dressings may catch fire, never leave a burning candle unattended.
