Please note: This is an individual listing for one pair of Hag candles.
Hag taper is a folk name for the wonderfully medicinal and magical mullein plant. Although ruled by the planet Saturn, this herb is often associated with fire. In ancient times, one would gather this magnificent herb, dry it out, then dip the spike in animal fat or tallow, and use as a torch for outdoor festivities and ceremonies. Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is traditionally known as an Herb of Protection. Other common names for Mullein Candles are Flower Torches, Mullein Torches, Witches Candles and Hag Tapers.
We have handcrafted these Mullein Hag Tapers with mullein we wild harvested ourselves (and friends) from our walks in NE Ohio & Pennsylvania and used 100% pure beeswax.
Bound to each Mullein candle is a Hag Stone from the beaches of Wexford, Ireland.
The Hag Stone should be unbound before burning. It can be worn as an amulet or used in magick workings. Hag stones offer powerful protection against evil spirits, the evil eye, and negative intentions.
A Hag Stone is mostly found on the seashore and due to the eroding action of running water, the holes are naturally carved into the stone over a long period of time.
They have been called by many names over the centuries including Witch Stones, Adder Stones, Snake Eggs, Hex Stones, Fairy Stones, Holy Stones, and Eye Stones.
Also included is a downloadable file you may print on parchment for your Journal/BOS detailing the magickal properties of Mullein. I’m also including mullein seeds for a limited time so that you may grow this wonderful Herbal Ally in your own garden.
