About

The most beautiful of the Norse goddesses, Freya is the goddess of Beauty and Love. Freyja is a seeress – she taught Odin the practice of seither.  That is fortune telling by entering a trance and contacting the spirits to determine the future.  If you seek to learn the arts of divination honoring and calling upon Freyja can help you achieve your goal. Freyja is a mistress of magic and witchcraft. She owned a cloak of falcon feathers which "enabled her spirit to take the form of a bird, travel to the underworld, and come back with prophecies and knowledge of destinies.

"Hail to Freya

Fairest of the Vanir

Sister of Freyr and daughter of Njordr

You who taught the power of the runes

Whose beauty and skill are unrivaled

Hear my now

I pray to you for the sake of the world

As we stand on the precipice of chaos

May we keep our calm and our courage

As we build new bridges over those burned

May we approach one another with humility

As we seek to be united once more

And may you guide us safely onward

Towards a better tomorrow

Let it be so.”

Goddess Freya Offerings

Consider adding some of these items around your candle to honor Goddess Freya:

Roses, Sandalwood, Ale, Apples, Barley, Edible Flowers, Honey, Mead, and Pork. Treating cats well is one way to pay homage to her—either by feeding feral cats or adopting cats and treating them well. As the goddess of love, she enjoys love poems and songs, which can be heard at Fólkvangr. Images of cats, boars, birds, rabbits, and the moon are also appropriate. Freya loves flowers, so keep a vase of flowers on her altar. Traditional offerings include honey, mead, flowers (especially primrose), mugwort, bird berry, bedstraw, flax, jewelry, perfume, ale, barley, pork and apples. Any act of love is an offering to Freya, as is strong feminine energy and independence. She adores love songs, dancing, divination, and more.

Candle Care Tips

Gems may fall towards wick once a large melt pool starts, if this happens just push it back towards the edge so it can burn properly or remove and enjoy your stone sooner. Once your candle is burned down your stone can be washed with soap and warm water to keep.

The first time you light your candle, you MUST let it burn for at LEAST 2 hours! The idea is to create a wax pool that reaches the sides of the candle to achieve an even burn every time it is lit. Burning for less time creates a tunnel that can lead to your candle putting itself out constantly and essentially rendering the candle useless.

Place candles in flameproof jars or cups to double the burn time. Always trim the wick before burning. Even if you’re relighting a candle, trim the wick to 1/4 inch. When the wick is too long it will burn uneven and create soot/smoke.

Keep candles away from direct sunlight. Candles in direct sunlight will lose their colour.

Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle. Always snuff out your spell candles as blowing (using the element Air) will undo all your hard work.

Candle Safety

Extinguish any candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep ensuring the wick ember is no longer glowing.

Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.

Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.

Always use a candle holder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.

Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting.

Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.

Place burning candles at least 6 cm apart from one another. This helps ensure they don’t melt each other, or create their own drafts that cause improper burning.


Never extinguish candles with water. The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and can cause glass containers to break.

Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, trim the wick to 1/4 inch, then check for drafts before relighting.

Special care should be taken when burning spell candles that contain herbs. Always remove any labels, ribbons, adornments, make sure the candles not near burnable material and dust off any herbs/resins around the wick of the candle before lighting.

Do not leave burning candles unattended as they contain dried herbs and crystals. Keep candles away from pets and children and from anything flammable.
