Hearth Candle

hearth candle during Samhain 2013

I do not have a fireplace, so instead I use a candle to represent a hearth for my household. For Bealtaine I ritually extinguish the one from the past year and light a new one that will be used for the upcoming year.

this year's candle
I will use beeswax from old blessing and protection candles that I saved throughout the year; I like to dye the candle red {a colour of protection} and this year I scented mine with bergamot and vetiver. I also include shells and botanicals that are associated with properties that I want to draw into my home such as peace, protection, prosperity and over all blessings.
