Cailleach Goddess of Winter Candle
Cailleach is the Celtic Queen of Winter and appears as the crone aspect of the triple Goddess. She arrives in late fall and rules the dark half of the year.
Cailleach is an ancient Goddess who has the ability to both create and destroy. She is the bringer of storms and creator of mountains and landscapes. She is a fierce protector of wild animals. She is often portrayed as an old hag with blue skin and red teeth.
The Cailleach candle is scented in Winter Woods. This incredible fragrance smells like outdoors on a crisp winter day and embodies the vibe of Cailleach just perfectly. The scent begins with top notes of bergamot, orange, and lemon; with middle notes of geranium, lily, and rose; and base notes of patchouli, vetiver, and tonka beans.
The Cailleach candle is decorated with blue and silver biodegradable glitter, and an offering of Clear Quartz. With it's icy appearance Clear Quartz amplifies energy and increases power.

ABOUT OUR CANDLES:
Our candles are hand poured using 100% soy wax and we only use phthalate free fragrances.
Why is soy wax better than parrafin?
Soy wax is an all natural vegetable wax that is made from - you guessed it - soy beans! This makes it 100 times more sustainable as it is derived from a renewable resource, where paraffin wax is derived from petroleum, coal, or oil shale.
Soy wax burns slower and cleaner, and has no additives or preservatives. It is a healthier choice for us and the environment 🌍.
Hemp wicks are also a healthier alternative to standard cotton wicks. Hemp is a fast growing, sustainable and renewable resource. These wicks produce little to no black smoke, are lead and zinc free, and last longer!
CANDLE SAFETY AND DIRECTIONS:
Trim the wick of your candle to 1/4 inch prior to first use and every time you burn it.
Soy wax has a memory. When you burn a soy candle and then extinguish it, the next time you burn it, the wax will only melt across as far as it did the first time. Let your candle burn long enough on the first burn to melt all the way across the top to prevent tunneling.
NEVER leave a burning candle unattended.
ALWAYS burn on a stable heat resistant surface that is out of open air drafts.
ALWAYS Keep out of reach of children and pets.
NEVER extinguish a burning candle with water.
