About the included items:
*Handmade Fire Etched Ostara Egg Altar Tile:
Our exclusive Ostara Egg Altar Tile is lovingly handcrafted of beautiful basswood, bringing together the symbolism of the Ostara sabbat together in elegant harmony. This tile features a silhouette of the rabbit, a pentacle, and beautiful new Spring growth. The hare is associated with one popular legend about Eostre in which she found a bird, wounded, on the ground late in winter. To save its life, she transformed it into a hare. But the "transformation" was incomplete. The bird took the appearance of a hare but retained the ability to lay eggs. The hare would decorate these eggs and leave them as gifts to Eostre. For many early Pagans, in Germanic countries most especially, this was a time to celebrate planting the new crop season. This practice carries on today in many Wicca and Witchcraft traditions.
Size: 4" tall
*Pure Natural Beeswax Ritual Candles:
Beeswax candles are clean burning and naturally release a light, honey scent. Unlike ordinary wax candles, they do not put off soot or smoke and have longer burn times than traditional paraffin. Each candle is approximately four inches tall and a half-inch in diameter, though the size and burn time may vary slightly. As each candle is crafted from natural beeswax and natural dye lots, there may be some color variation from the pictures shown. Our Beeswax mini spell candles are completely dripless if kept out of drafts while burning.
Size: 4" x 0.5"
*About the crystals:
Rose Quartz not only activates the heart chakra but opens you up for a deeper connection of love found within the embrace of the heart of the world surrounding you. It has been known to stimulate the crown chakra, third eye chakra, and throat chakra, bringing them into harmony with the heart. All chakras, in fact, benefit from the abundance of love energy that flows from the influence of rose quartz. When using rose quartz to activate the heart chakra you will find that it helps your complete emotional body in the healing of past wounds that have hurt your heart. Further, rose quartz can assist you in creating more compassion in your life.
Rose Quartz Size: 0.75"-1.25"
Clear Quartz is a stone of Light, bringing heightened spiritual awareness to whoever wears, carries, or meditates with it. It provides a clear way for the higher vibrations of the Spirit realm to be transmitted and translated into the physical realms. The worry stone comes with a thumb-pad sized indentation for gently rubbing worries away.
