Add an old-world mystique to your spells and rituals with this fantastic triple goddess wax seal and wax kit. Traditionally, wax was used to seal letters and envelopes shut and closed from prying eyes. The uses for these are limited only by imagination: add a seal to your spells, to your rituals as an accent on the page, or even seal your spells closed once complete!
Sealing wax is specially blended to create a seal which, after melting, quickly hardens (to paper, parchment, ribbons and wire, and other materials) forming a bond. It can be used to take impressions of seals, sigils, and symbols when they are applied to the freshly dripped wax.
This kit comes complete with five pieces of premium writing paper, matching cream heavyweight envelopes, silver sealing wax, and the triple goddess seal.
About the symbol:
The Triple Goddess represents the divine feminine's connection to the cycles of nature. The Maiden is the spring, new beginnings and possibilities, and the waxing crescent moon. The Mother is the bounty of the earth, summer and early harvest, and the full moon. The Crone is the end of the growth cycle when the leaves turn, the sleeping earth in winter, and the waning crescent moon. All three Goddess archetypes are known individually, but when the three aspects come together in the triple form, their power multiplies, reminding us of the beauty of all the parts of life and renewal through the cycles of the earth. With this inscription on both the front and back faces of the chalice, it makes for a wonderful tool of ritual offering.
Using sealing wax:
1) Light the wick and hold the wax stick at a slight angle with the lit end pointing downward.
2) Holding your wax stick directly over the area you wish to make your seal, allow the wax to pool onto the material. Be sure to create a pool large enough for your chosen seal.
3) Dab your seal onto your seal non-stick to prevent it from becoming stuck to the sealing wax. If you are not using a non-stick, the wax may become stuck to the wax. This is not an issue, simply allow the wax to cool completely then lift your seal straight off.
4) Emboss the pool of wax with your seal, lifting straight up.
**For strong waxes, if you rest your seal on ice before embossing the hot wax, this will quick-set the wax allowing for the seal to easily release.
