Inexplicable Things . . . ?

Bonjour, Chere! Come in and sit a spell!

I am Miss Sha' - I am a Cajun - and named after a cajun song - which began my love affair with all things in the bayou and Louisiana in general!

Inexplicable Things is the culmination of many generations of hand crafting candles; the slow simmering of magickal oils; the hand selecting and milling of only the finest herbs, roots and flowers for our powders and gris gris - among many other things. We take our hand crafting work very seriously, chere, and we enjoy creating magickal works of art.

As the name of the shop implies, many of the items we create are inexplicable, but ain't that what true Swamp Magick is all about? We are quite happy to do custom creations of any kind - from specific purposes, to a setting of lights, to setting something in motion for a problem, or even one of my Grandmawmaw's herbal blends for an ailment!

You will probably eventually see a theme in our works - bayou/cajun/hoodoo influenced - Nothing is laughed at or frowned upon in our shop - if you have something specific in mind, don't be shy, child! Tell us!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
All items must be paid for within 52 hours of purchase.

I accept PayPal (unless other arrangements are made) - as this is the safest, easiest and quickest way to make a financial transaction. Don't have a PayPal account? No worries - you can still use PayPal even if you don't have a PayPal account! Just visit:

I reserve the right to cancel a transaction if no payment has been recieved by 52-hour mark of the purchase. If you stumble upon a problem with payment, or need more time, please let me know - I understand that things happen and emergencies pop up - but please do notify us!
Don’t you just hate purchasing something online and then having to wait for it to arrive?

For this reason, we try to ship things as quickly as possible – once they are ready to travel. This means if it’s under 13 ounces, we will try to ship First Class, but anything over, will have to be shipped Priority. For most large orders, we will use the Priority Mail medium box – which costs nearly $13.00 – so fill it up! These boxes will hold a lot of items! If we can fit it into a smaller flat rate box, we will, but we WILL NOT cram your candles and items into a smaller box simply to save shipping – this will result in damaged goods.

With that being said, please understand that shipping costs are frustrating, these days. Inexplicable Things makes every effort to reduce both cost and wait time. Candles are heavy – we all know this. But, this means they cost a lot to ship. The further they travel, the higher the price of postage.

We try to take as much hassle as we can out of this process. If it seems the shipping is high for your order, please keep in mind that for several years – in several online market places – we have offered a refund in the shipping price – if what you pay for shipping is more than $1 over the actual price.
If you purchase multiple items, the shipping price goes down even more! The shopping cart will figure the cheapest price and kick in those extra discounts when you have more than one item in your cart.

Some of the most common pricing is as follows:
Sets of votives, 2 and 4-oz travel tins: $ 6.95
8oz, 10oz, MiniPillars: range - $5.95 to $14.95 – depending upon your location.
Large quantity orders, doll babies, etc - $12.95 and up – depending upon location and box size.

If it still seems high, please feel free to contact me with questions about your shipping charges. I am always glad to take a look and see if it can be shipped cheaper.

For Domestic Orders - We try to ship twice a week - but living in rural Louisiana, some times that just isn't possible. Generally, orders go out on Mondays. Most orders are created on Saturdays - if the order is made prior to that Friday - this means for most orders, I need a week to create your one-of-a-kind items. If this is a problem, please convo me BEFORE you purchase and other arrangements can be made.

"Special Order" or Custom made items will vary depending upon creation times - but most will be shipped within 14 days or less of receipt of payment.

Occasionally, I will need a specific moon phase for a special order and buyers of these items need to consider this.

For International Shipping - Absolutely! Some of my best customers are in places like UAE, Croation, Russia - We gladly offer International Shipping – but please understand that even the smallest International box is roughly $25 to ship! So please contact us prior to your order and we will get you a quote on the shipping.

All Orders:
Your package will be prepared as soon as your order is received. We do our best to ship orders within 48-72 hours after ordering. However, if it’s a custom order or a specific moon phase is required, lead time may be a bit longer.
We always make up our candles fresh when ordered rather than keeping a large inventory on hand.
We DO NOT mass produce! Each order we receive is given the respect it deserves and is unique!

Your items will be will mostly be shipped directly from the printing company. This ensures that your prints will come packaged safely and quickly - usually in sturdy cardboard envelopes or boxes. Large prints will often be rolled in thick tubes.
Refunds and Exchanges
General Purpose Candles:
If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, you may return any unused candles within 14 days for a full refund except for shipping costs and listing fees. We do not refund purchases for candles that have been burned, unless there is a problem with the burning process. If such problem occurs, please do not try to fix the problem by altering the candle but contact us for further instructions.

Hand Crafted Hoodoo & Spell Candles:
All of these items are hand-crafted and made with a specific purpose in mind, therefore, no two are exactly alike. And once a candle is charged, it can not be undone. All sales of Hoodoo or Spell candles is final - no refunds or exchanges can be made. However, if you experience a problem - please do contact us. I will look into a discount on future purchases, or offer an alternative.

If your item arrives damaged, please send us a photo of the damaged items within 7 days of delivery and we will be happy to replace any items damaged due to improper packing.

Make sure you know and understand what you are buying!
Please read all descriptions carefully to ensure you are getting what you want! Always ask questions when you have them - I am quite happy to answer them!

I am not responsible for any damages or lost items once they are shipped - especially if you choose not to purchase insurance. We are all at the mercy of the postal service once the item is shipped. If there is a delay in the receipt of your item, before leaving feedback, please note the postmark!

Any prints larger then 11x14 are considered a custom order and are non-returnable.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are hand-crafted - so, basically, no two will be exactly alike. But, that is what makes hand-crafted items beautiful and unique!
Please understand that there may be slight variances in color or shape or herbal blend.

If you want something very specific, please convo me! I am happy to do custom orders, but understand that these orders are differently priced than what you see in the shop.
