New Orleans legendary Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau, was a very powerful women. It is said she could fix court cases, persuade police, that her gris gris bags were sold for thousands of dollars and that she had 12,000 devotees of every color. She was a healer, a magician, a saint, and a snake handler. To this day, if you visit her grave in New Orleans, bring her an offering, draw 3 X's on her tomb and knock 3 times, your request will be answered. Born in 1792, Marie transformed Voodou from a persecuted cult to an organized, respected religion and cultural tradition. She has achieved unofficial saint status and continues to perform miracles and answer prayers from her grave at New Orleans' St. Louis Cemetery # 1.
This candle is dressed with herbs to enhance connection with spirit and to petition Marie to grant your requests. The bottom has been hollowed and "loaded" in the traditional manner of hoodoo dressing. Featuring an image of her, the candle is also dressed with my Ashe' Gbongo and lavender oils, then dressed with orris root, lavender buds, hibiscus, cherry bark, and sea shells. I have also added powdered snake skin as snakes were sacred to her-she allegedly had a snake named 'zomby'.
You may remove the image before burning, or leave it as an offering, to carry your prayers to her.
Each candle is dressed and loaded upon order for each client-they are not pre-made.
Herbs will ignite! This is an offering candle. Please place on a heat safe dish, with sand or pebbles in the bottom, to burn.
