I’ve just created a new batch of Spell Candles and Magical Amulets for sale at Cosmic Delights, here in Madison, Wisconsin, where it is my pleasure to offer Psychic Readings each Saturday from 1 to 6 PM. My cauldron bubbleth over with creativity this month and magic is in the air!
My Spell Candles are built up slowly, beginning with a pure white core, signifying purity of intent, and then slowly, layer by layer, I add herbs, oils, gemstones and good old fashioned spellwork until each one is complete.
My Magical Amulets are created as wearable magic. Protective and constructive bits of magical energy, enchanted so that they will tune into the needs of the wearer.
Both Spell Candles and Magical Amulets may be created just for you for specific purposes just see Raven at Cosmic Delights, from 1 to 6 PM on Saturdays to place your order, or conact me through this website’s “Contact Me” page.
I currently offer Spell Candles and Magical Amulets in three varieties:
Love and Passion
The Magical Amulets and Spell Candles in this variety are a bright red in color and has many elements of oils, herbs and gemstones making it a powerful tool. My protected recipe for these includes many things. Below are a few of the elements I use.
Rose Quartz, to attract and hold love,to draw positive emotions out both for one’s self and for/from others. Besides those uses for a love Amulet, there are many other benefits provided by this beautiful pink gemstone. Rose Quartz is used to heal ailments of the thymus, heart, and lungs. Rose Quartz is also known to help heal breast cancer and is an excellent support stone for most other types of cancer as well.
Catnip is a very old and time honored spell ingredient. Often used to enhance beauty and draw love and affection, this herb and it’s essential oil are very effective when used in magical workings to create and draw love and passion. Interesting to note is that not all cats react to catnip in the typical way, and only about 70% of cats get the “playful crazies” from smelling it. However almost all cats, including some big cats get sleepy and relaxed from eating it!
A variety of hot spices and peppers are used in spells to inflame passion and make physical love more rewarding. I choose to use the most proven ones, including Cayenne, Chili peppers and a few other secret ingredients to achieve the most potent results! Another little known effect of using hot peppers in spellwork is their ability to inspire a person to action and almost jolt one into forward action, often helping people to break laziness and a tendency to inactivity.
Money and Success
The Magical Amulets and Spell Candles in this variety are a rich green in color, signifying the wealth and prosperity they draw to the user. While success and healing are also part of it’s magic, this powerful tool can be a omen of great change for the user and also contains many different oils, herbs and gemstones adding to it’s power. Below are only a tiny bit of all that I use in creating these Magical Amulets and candles.
Cash. Cold, hard currency! To enhance the magic in my money, prosperity and success spellwork, I use actual bits of American Money, legally obtained, and only in small, un-spendable bits, but these bits carry energy and are very powerful in their representation and, when combined in this kind of spell, very good at drawing to the user, more of the same!
Malachite attracts wealth and success. It also provides powerful protection, inspires imagination and creativity, which can help one find greater success! So often has Malachite been used by the wealthy and successful, it should be no surprise that Cleopatra used ground up paste of Malachite as eye shadow under her eyes, thereby flaunting her wealth and success! I do not recommend that use however, as powered Malachite is toxic! Fear not, faceted and polished gems are harmless.
Pine. Elements of many parts of this tree are combined in my prosperity spells. Pine needle oil, bits of cone and bark are used, too. Pine is helpful in attracting prosperity, purifying and helping one to stay on track and focused, which can help clear the way to success both materially and otherwise! Pine cones and wands ward off evil influences. Also of note – pine is said to increase fertility and help one to enjoy a active and vigorous old age!
Peace and Protection
This variety of Magical Amulets and Spell Candles are a deep purple color, signifying spiritual serenity, and safe, shielded protection. Peace is the first job of this amulet or candle but this is a vibrant collection of ingredients that have been used for a long time for elimination of bad energy, chaos and for protection of the user. While many of the ingredients are a close help secret, I’ve listed below a few of the components that I use in creating these Magical Amulets and Spell Candles.
Linden. This tree also known as Basswood or Lime-Tree is often associated with the Tree of Life. Linden wood exemplifies the power of attraction not only for love and harmony, but also strong protection. My Peace and Protection Magical Amulets and Spell Candles use the essential oil for enhancing Good Fortune, ending Sleep Disorders, bringing calm to the user. The wood is added for protection. On a spiritual level, Linden can help relieve grief as well.
Patchouli Plant is one of my favorite herbs for protection and banishing of negative energy and entities. Spelling of the rich earth, this plant is reinforcing of one’s own personal power and helps add to the strength of all the other components in my Peace and Protection candles or amulets. Interestingly, Patchouli is often substituted or graveyard dust in spells when that element is unavailable. Other uses for Patchouli include money drawing, and passion spells. Bonus!
One of the most important and multi purpose elements of my Peace and Protection products is Amethyst. It is one of the most calming and reassuring gems, and is great for emotional problems and helps prevent worrying overmuch. Known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and enhance meditative state, its inherent high frequency purifies the aura of any negative energy or attachments. Amethyst also helps break the negative cycle of addictive behaviors.
How to use Spell Candles and Magical Amulets
The main thing to remember when using any magical tool, like Magical Amulets and Spell Candles is to respect the magic. Always be mindful of the fact that your intent is the most powerful part of any magical undertaking, so keep your focus and intent directed toward your goal.
When using my Spell Candles, it is of the utmost importance that you focus first on what you hope to achieve and visualize the desired result clearly before you begin. To begin, find a place that is going to be undisturbed for a while, and a flame proof base to put your Spell Candle on. Seated comfortably with the candle in front of you, light it and spend at least 5 minutes watching the flame, trying yo see within it’s depths that which you desire. If your belief system supports it, you may want to ask your deity or the Universe to help you find the result you wish for. Always being mindful of your purpose will help make your efforts successful. Do not ever leave your Spell Candle unattended, and keep out of reach of children and pets. Monitor your candle as it burns down, trimming the oil, wax and herb crust from the edges each time you burn it, as these can fall into the flame if not kept trimmed and they are flammable.
Magical Amulets are very simple in their use. When I create them, they are purposed to serve the person who wears them, so putting it on is all that is needed to make the magic happen. To enhance their effect, a good idea is to hold the amulet in your left hand while meditation on the most important thing you wish to receive from use of the amulet. That simple! Take care to treat them gently. Although the glass bottles are durable, and the cork is epoxied in place after I fill them, they are breakable if dropped on a hard surface or take a hard impact.
Use for Positive purposes only!
Use with only highest and best intent, never negative or dark purpose. My products area all be spelled so that negative or dark use negates their spellwork and power. Used for good though, they can be an extremely powerful tool and can work with you to help make your life better!
I hope that this answers questions about Spell Candles and Magical Amulets, and that they bring to you all the good and positive energy you put into their use!
I’m still working with Cosmic Delights here in Madison, doing Psychic Readings every Saturday from 1 PM to 6 PM. I’ve met some amazing people there and happily, I have had many of them become regular clients who I totally enjoy seeing very often. I am even beginning to work with some students on a one-on-one basis, to help them develop their own psychic and magical abilities!
Alas, I have not developed a class for groups yet, but Stephen, my husband and greatest teacher in this life, and I are working on that possibility. Perhaps a Magic 101 type of class, as has been suggested. I will update here and you may also call the store to see if there is anything new on the calendar.
Summertime is when I can finally get out and gather some wood for wand and staff making again, too! I will be working on some wood I gathered last year, (that which the hungry squirrels didn’t eat during the cold months, that it!) and hopefully will have some new wooden crafts to either list on Etsy or put int Cosmic on consignment soon!
I just brought some new Dragon Eye pendants and key chains into the store last week, so if you stop by, look for those, along with my latest batch of Smokeless Smudge, cooked up right here in my own little cauldron!
Summer is not quite here though, Solstice isn’t for a while yet, but it’s coming and that is one of my favorite festival days, so I will let you know what is going on for that occasion. Maybe even Solstice Readings Special!
Well, that’s about it for now. I’m sorry that I had to sacrifice March through June this year to Pancreatitis, but I’m back now and feeling so much better, I just can’t wait to get moving forward again!
Today I want to tell you all about Stones and Crystals and a terrific day of learning that happened recently at Madison’s Cosmic Delights.
At this Red Tent Womens Gathering, I was honored to introduce many beautiful women to the mineral kingdom. We explored the most powerful stones for women and how to use them in our daily lives. Red Tents are a great place for women to gather, recharge, find support and learn self care techniques.
Stones and crystals have many properties, features, and benefits, and while it is true that not everyone recognizes their metaphysical or spiritual properties, they quietly do their work anyway. Their are many reference books on the market from which to learn stone and crystals’ wisdom. Some are very good and offer an immense database
of information for anyone to tap into. Some others, not so much. I added a few suggestions to the stone guide which every participant received at this gathering, but in case you didn’t get to attend, my favorite gemstone reference books which include descriptions of ALL their properties, not just the scientific descriptions are:
Stones and crystals have been revered pretty much since life on this earth began for their beauty and by some, for the many spiritual and health benefits they could provide.
The Christian Bible mentions stones and crystals over 200 times. Mayan, Aztec, Native American, African Native, and Celtic peoples all recognized the many uses of crystals and employed them for rituals and ceremonies. The common belief is that minerals are of the earth, and thus connect us to the universal energy of our world. When we use minerals, it must always be for the best and highest good, to benefit all of us and our Mother Earth.
Perhaps you already know a lot about stones and crystals or have a connection to some that you keep with you or in your home. Many benefits can be had just by carrying them with you or keeping then in your home, working with them as partners in your physical, mental and spiritual well being.
Everyone who attended my Stones and Crystals for Womens’ Health Red Tent Gathering received a pouch with 7 stones to take home for further use. These stones were chosen for their ability to assist women with issues that are unfortunately all too common among many of our sisters living on Earth taday.
Stones and Crystals for Womens’ Health

It acts as a magnifier for the energies of any other stones and crystals near it, Helps increase personal energy field and shields. Creates almost a “buffer zone” around one who wears it.
