As he mourned Ariadne, her form now stone forever, Dionysus looked hatefully at Aphrodite "Why did you make love this painful? Are you the Goddess of Love or the Goddess of Destruction?"

Aphrodite's eyes held sorrow as she said, "Both, child. Both."

Offering candles to Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, born from foam, and the Black Queen. 

She was originally known to be both a goddess of love and war, perhaps native to Cyprus, gateway between Mediterranean Asia, Europe, and Africa. 

While she is primarily known as the Greek goddess of love, beauty, and fertility, she is also associated with aspects of destruction and conflict, such that she embodies both the creative and destructive powers of love and desire: it can lead to joy and harmony, but it can also cause jealousy, obsession, and strife. 

Burn these tapers to evoke her energy and to assist you with spells regarding glamour, self-love, lust, and other related crafts. 

ɪᴛᴇᴍ ᴅᴇsᴄʀɪᴘᴛɪᴏɴ:  Two 6 inch pillar candles rolled in locally sourced herbs. These taper candles have been ritually rolled in herbs associated with Aphrodite such as rose, chamomile, and damiana. 

𝐈𝐌𝐏𝐎𝐑𝐓𝐀𝐍𝐓: These candles melt beautifully and are safe to burn indoors, however, PLEASE be wary of the flame. The more herbs, the bigger and taller the flame with be. Always supervise your candles while burning. These candles have very burnable botanicals. Some herbs may crackle when caught on fire, such as cedar and juniper.

Always burn in a reliable candle holder or in a fireproof dish.
