Last week I introduced you guys to candle magic and it's basics. Now, I want to introduce you to a wonderful lady who's taken candle magic, what you can do with it, and what it means to her to a whole new level.
éan, a magic-infused candle shop on Etsy, has been making and delivering their candles since 2014.
Using what I stated above, Maggie uses phthalate-free essential oil fragrances and intent to give her GMO-free soy candles an extra magical boost.
Not only is her product 100% Vegan friendly, Maggie comes up with some incredibly delightful scent combinations. I could drown in a honeymilk and sugar candle right about now. Or take a bath while surrounded with fifty-or-so black tea tobacco candles. So amazing.
éan is also the source for cheap, authentic crystals, ESPECIALLY for the broke witchling. I mean $4 for a beautifully cut moonstone crystal is an amazing bargain, especially when genuine crystals are so hard to come by in brick-and-mortar stores.
When I asked Maggie about how she got started with magic and her store, this is what she said:

I turned to magic at the same time I believe most do: in a time of crisis. I had just hit my year mark of living in Los Angeles and felt I had nothing to show for it, I went through a traumatic break-up, and my parents divorced after almost 25 years of marriage within a four week time span. My day job wasn’t too fulfilling and my social life was lackluster, to say at the least. I had hit a bottom of sorts.
I scent this candle with essential oils like jasmine, rose, and ginger, all of which have magical correspondences of love, romance, and sex. I also use phthalate-free fragrances, because simply scenting my candles with essential oils would make them INCREDIBLY expensive!
I squealed for a good half hour when I found out about the crystals inside Maggie's candles; I've never thought of doing that before!
The fact that she puts so much love and thought into craft, especially when it comes to making her candles, it's absolutely refreshing. I love shops that run like this.
