This is a candle that was created to both acknowledge & pay homage to our ancestors. Those that fought and risked their own safety to pass down African spirituality to us. Blessings to the ancestors that didn't allow anyone to beat it out of them, holding strong to spiritual practices that were their birthright.
Each Candle is dressed with Tobacco, Cloves, Black Tourmaline and Pyrite; once burned makes for an elixir of protection & purification. The sweet and smoky notes of pipe tobacco remind me of the very stuff my grandfather would smoke as he did his conjure work.
Hoodoo was created by enslaved Africans on plantations in America during slavery. Many who practiced hoodoo or religious systems indigenous to the majestic continent known as Africa were persecuted & killed for it. Unfortunately, Hoodoo has become commercialized, distorted and exploited by those who are not practitioners or believers of the craft. Exploited by peddlers that turned African Spirituality into a novelty & capitalizing on someone else's sacred belief system; the term "genetically modified" comes to mind.
In the present day as many that were once estranged, awaken & return to their roots (pun intended), we begin to see that BLACK MAGIC MATTERS , a whole hell of a lot. Return to home, return to the cradle of civilization, return to "mama", she's been waiting.
