★ For rebirth, spirits of the dark forest, alchemising pain into purpose, decomposing the old shadow wounds into nourishment. ★
I love the Dark Fantasy forest candle so much I made a cute little votive version!
This beautiful soy candle is the pure artistry of the forest spaces, designed to capture the essence of a hedge witch in the dark forest.
It honours the spirit of mushrooms - those spirits who connect and alchemize all life, all energy, lending us their great wisdom and power.
People overlook them all the time, but they carry on regardless.
The soy wax has been thrice deepened to give it a rich midnight sky effect, and the fly agaric toadstool is all wax, crafted and handpainted (with wax) by myself.
Channelled sacred poetry:
“I have walked steps of death
Bleeding over jagged stones
In each crevice a toadstool blooms
The twist of it could have been
As I hesitantly, achingly, tiptoe
Through the darkest of forests
Lulled by promises of sleep
Moss rich boughs
Pillared gateways all
Whispering of otherness
Dew drops of old tears
Woven into thread canopies
And dried in frost curled ferns
Glittering in the sun
Here I have been unmade
Time and time again
This dark forest is both
My enemy and dearest friend
As mushrooms from my bones descend
For we all decompose in the end.”
