Vintage German stumpenkerzen carved candle. Absolutely beautiful and GIANT!
“figure candles” can be used for home blessings, purification, consecration, peaceful home spells and much, much, more. Perfect for the holiday season to aid the household in remaining peaceful. These candles can be used for protection, jinx killing, assisting in rituals of purification and healing. You can carve names into the candles or portions of the bottom out to fill / load with herbs. To personalize carve the names of the people that live in the house you are working on. The more detail the better! If you have personal concerns of theirs those can be stuffed up into a hole you dig at the base of the candle. They can then be dressed with oil, like you would any other candle.
Perfect to adorn your Yule altar. Candles are used in religious rituals & for spiritual means as both functional & symbolic lights.
As Christianity swept into pagan lands, and it officially replaced the old religions, sometimes remnants of the old culture and religion remained, however, and rather than discarding the old gods entirely, some cultures re-branded the native gods as Christian saints. .

Candles may drip, so always burn candle on a non-porous heat resistant container to catch wax and never leave a burning candle unattended.
