This candle can be used to petition the Pomba Gira (Maria Padhilla), the wife of Exu and deity of the crossroads. Her domain is love + relationships, attraction, seduction, power, prosperity + witchcraft. She is an avid supporter and ally of women who are subject to discrimination, jealousy, abuse or harassment. She empowers women and challenges them to assert themselves in the world.
Our candles are crafted for ritual use. We do not add any artificial or synthetic scents and feel that the natural smell of beeswax, herbs, and resins are best suited for magickal purposes.
The herbs will make the candles burn faster with a torch like flame. If you choose to use them this way be prepared to monitor closely!
Do not burn unattended, always burn on a heat safe surface or in a candleholder. I prefer to burn these in a sand filled cauldron, or taper candle holder because dressed candles have flammable additions (herbs/oils) that can catch fire. Regardless, careful monitoring is required and it is always best to burn on a heat safe surface. Trim wick to 1/4” before burning.
