Pagan Mother



This should have been more about the botanica, Original Products, and not the lady. Too many so-called "witch queens" in the world today. However, this queen is a bit different. She's associated with the Magickal Childe of NYC fame. I think she was friends with Herman Slater's partner. She has her own shop now. She does make some neat candles.

I've ordered from them before. They have some really neat stuff. Check them out.

  2. I just got a few 7day pull out candles and glass cases to reuse with the same color candle at a very reasonable price. I was shocked when I received the order to see that the glass and candles are much bigger than others I've used.

    1. Yes, the pull out and the holders that accept them are bigger. The pre-filled 7 day candles have shrunk over the years. I actually did a blog entry on it. I included a picture of 2 novena candles I bought for my Mom like years ago, possibly 90s but not sure now. I put them side-by-side to modern 7 day candles and you could easily see how much they have shrunk. Crazy.

  3. I remember reading that post. Have you burned their candles, do they burn pretty well normally if you don't mind me asking? I was going to give one a go tomorrow or Saturday. I just hope the good price doesn't equal bad burning candles.

    1. I don't live there and I tend to just buy local. She has her own shop now and is no longer there. Honestly, those candles are prettier, with the glitter and all, but they aren't anymore powerful than a normal 7 day candle. If you want to try it out, go for it. Or if you want to make your own you can just order the pull out candles, glasses, carving tools, and glitter and create your own.
