The name might scare you and make you want to hide under your covers but fear not, I have created this candle to protect you from Mercury’s scorn. 


Retrograde is when a planet appears to go backward in its orbit and when Mercury decides to turn around, just light this candle to keep you grounded.  Mercury represents transport and communication and when the dreaded retrograde happens these two areas seem to get the hardest hit and break into chaos. When making this candle I adorned it with a protection spell and here lies the spell incase you feel it needs a bit more magick:


Sit quietly on your own, cast a circle around you, place your candle in front of you, light it while taking a deep breath and say the following out loud: 

“Power of the night,

Power of the day

I grant your protection from the retrograde”

Say this three times while looking into the flame and meditate on your desire.


The candle is purple which represents protection. The candle has a slight smell of lilac and honeysuckle and is infused with purple howlite which is an extremely calming stone said to soothe away anxiety, stress and tension. It is also believed to encourage patience.


Caution: Please use your candle with care and never leave an open flame unattended. Aways remove the large dried flowers from the top of the candle before lighting. Do not leave a burning candle unattended. Do not burn for longer than 4 hours. Do not let the candle burn to the bottom of the container. Trim the wick before re lighting.


Comes in a 300ml recyclable glass, burns for approximately 45 hours.
