TheBatandRaven is taking a short break

My expectations were high because of other reviews. I was not disappointed! I got my candle and an extra as well as herbs and instructions for the clay. This was my first time ever buying handmaid candles and it was a great experience. I will buy from here in the future.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
We accept commissions for all of our products. Contact us with the kind of spell you're looking for and we will post a custom order page for you when it is ready.
Amazon-free packaging and shipping: 0% of our herbs, packaging, paper, thank you’s, crafts, and extras come from Amazon. We are strong advocates for wealth distribution and while the platforms we use (Instagram being the foremost) do necessitate a certain amount of system buy-in: we are determined to avoid feeding the rich anymore than we already do. We’d much rather eat them. Nom.
Organic herbs are safer for burning and soaking. Pesticides can cause toxicity when inhaled or burned, they can also degrade the natural powers of herbs, as well as become more flammable or even explosive. But also, we are witches. Witches are dedicated to the Earth in a powerful way. Our belief is that we are here to live in the earth’s cycles and do the least harm possible. Pesticides ruin ecosystems, kill pollinators, and are even to blame for some extinctions. Indian Elephants are regularly poisoned by the inorganic tea industry. We are determined to do and be better. That’s why we buy organic.
Common Herbs Left Out
ALWAYS SPEAK WITH YOUR MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL BEFORE ADDING HERBS TO YOUR REGULAR REGIME. Lilith consults with her psychiatrist to find the ones that are harmful to her because of her anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, and benzodiazepines. Favorites such as red clover and St. John’s Wort (blood thinners), as well as multiple herbs that utilize the same pathways as common medications to ensure that your intake does not affect the efficacy of your medications. We remind you that there IS NO LICENSED HERBALIST affiliated with The Bat & Raven. Please take care to ensure anything you put in your body is going to only help you bloom and not contribute to your wilting.
What makes our spell candles different?
These candles are handmade from start to finish. Tapers are dipped layer by layer, the herbs are finely ground to prevent catching fire and falling, and they are dipped in wax again after the herbs are applied to hold them to the candle, all of which makes for a truly magical ritual experience.
