Offering candles to the sisters of Olympus: 

Hestia: Goddess of the hearth, the home, and hospitality 

Hera: Goddess of marriage, loyalty, and union 

Demeter: Goddess of agriculture, fertility, and the harvest

 

Hestia's colors were crafted in shades of sandstone and pumpkin with drips of apricot. They represent the tame fires within a hearth, and the presiding, gentle spirit of the home. She bears the representation as the kindest of all the Olympian spirits and is said to be modest, humble, but exceptionally powerful for protection.

Demeter's colors range from a light brown to gold, with drips of olive and forest green shades. These represent her duty to the earth in agriculture, specifically more so in grains, barley, and wheat. 

Hera's colors range from heather gray and periwinkle, with drips of bronze and gold, signifying her royalty as Queen of the Gods. In pre-Hellenic cultures, Hera was initially worshipped as a Lady of the Beasts, a goddess of abundance and fertility, which is fitting as she is a divine entity of power, strength, and appetite. 


Because these candles drip so easily, it's the perfect time to practice some candle divination, also known as Carromancy. Watch how the candle burns. Do you see figures in the wax? Do the flames flicker, grow tall, or hiss? Is there a certain direction in the way the wax is melting? These ritual candles may hold more secrets than you know.

𝐈𝐌𝐏𝐎𝐑𝐓𝐀𝐍𝐓: These candles are best used for decoration on your altar or best burned OUTDOORS. Should you plan to burn them indoors, be wary of the flame.
