RITUAL // Cardamom + Star Anise Candle
For this particular RITUAL we are focusing on the balance of love, sensuality, and natural relaxation. Use this candle during meditation to enhance your natural gifts and power. We focused on using Star Anise for several of it’s magickal properties, like being a geometric balancer with it’s eight pointed star shape. The balanced and equal shape will bring balance into a clear understanding what is truly correct for you. Star Anise can awaken the spirit in you and amplify your psychic intuition and greater universal knowledge. Placing Star Anise in a corner of your abode will offer protection by creating safe spaces for positive energy to enter, while blocking only ill will energies. Cardamom is used for it’s intention in love, sensuality, and an aphrodisiac. It is associated with water and feminine energy as it is ruled by the planet Venus. Cardamom’s strongest use is to attract or promote love, or extra invigoration in the bedroom. We added Rose Buds to the top as well for their extremely strong protection and love enhancing properties. Think of how the thorns on a rose bush offer protection for the flower, and how the rose flower is so often the symbol of love. Together they will balance the intentions of love, protection, and intuition. We chose a clear glass vessel to ensure that Star Anise can radiate out of the vessel at all times. We also kept labeling to a minimum so the white of the candle shows through. White candles are cleansing and purifying, so it's great for clearing away old energies and bringing in fresh, new, happy ones.
Our intentions with this RITUAL is creating safe and balanced love for yourself, to attract balanced love, give love while respecting your own needs, or help clear an understanding of how to accept love.
Cardamom + Star Anise infuses spaces with the aromas of a spice bazaar. Peppery top notes of ginger and cardamom mingle with the star anise to create a fusion reminiscent of a cup of masala chai.
