DIY Sea Shell Candles🕯🌊 made from recycled birthday candles

I’m sure there are plenty of posts like this one, but I’m just proud that I made some myself! So here’s my process!

What I used:

~ Old birthday candles
~ Shells (Mine were mussel shells)
~ Essential Oils of your choice(I used chamomile & peppermint)
~ A peeler, knife or scissors
~ Something to melt the wax in(I was lucky enough to have metal measuring cups)
~ A clothes pin to keep the wick up

Here’s how to do it!

Originally I was just trying to get the white design off the candles, so I could have homemade looking colored candles for spells. I ended up breaking a few of them while trying to peel the design off so I just used the left over candle and reused the wick for my sea shell candles!

🕯First I scraped the design off(carefully), and kept them in piles of the color. You’ll have to break one of the candles for the wick. One wick will work for two sea shells unless your shells are larger.

🕯Second I put the scraps of wax into the metal measuring cup and placed that on a pan on the stove to heat it and melt. Once melted, I tossed a few drops of my essential oils into the wax to make it smell good. I used chamomile(for calming, success, & easing anxiety) & peppermint(for healing, love, cleansing, and that extra little boost I need sometimes!) But feel free to add whatever you like!

🕯Third I poured the wax into the shells carefully. You may want to make sure the shells are evenly placed, maybe put something on one side to balance it so the wax doesn’t spill out. Then, while the wax is still hot I used a clothes pin to put the wick in and left it to dry. Once dry, your shell doesn’t have to be level(unless you filled it to the top - then your wax will shift when lighted!)

That’s it! It was super simple and easy and quick. Now I also have some great, mini and homemade looking spell candles as well as some aromatherapeutic sea shell candles for my desk while I work & read. Enjoy your sea shell candles my fellow witches! 🌙

Blessed be🥀

Acorn moon candles

• Harvested acorn shells
• Wax bits from old candles
• Old incense stick bottoms
• Lavander flower (optional)

》 Melt the wax (wax burner or old tin can and an old pot full of water on the stove works well for this), pour into shells, stick the wicks in and blow softly for a few seconds… wax will harden and the candle is done! Repeat for as many as you’d like to make!

☆ These candles are wonderful for small or short spells AND they float on water which makes them extra fun! Enjoy! ☆

Trump’s proposed budget would kill a big earthquake preparedness project

  • Should Donald Trump’s 2018 budget pass, federal funding for a proposed early earthquake warning system will disappear, killing the project faster than you can say “seismograph.”
  • According to the proposed budget, the ShakeAlert early warning system will not receive the $8.2 million in funding it needs to be implemented.
  • The Los Angeles Times reports that the system would have warned people of an upcoming quake seconds or minutes before the earth began to tremble.  
  • The program needs more seismic sensors installed along the West and Pacific Northwest, as well as a staff of about 40 or 50 to monitor them. Read more (5/26/17)

OK this is for all my Witches and Witchlings.

Don’t let money or tools be the center of your craft.
Don’t wait for the metaphorical planets to align.

Do what you want to or need to do with what you have. Use the three year old candle, the empty jar of yogurt and the half dead potted plant.

Don’t be afraid to do your Craft even if you can’t have 10 tarot decks and four different types of rose quarz.
Clensed and blessed bottle water can be just as effective as rain or river water.

We all want beautiful altars and a dozen self grown herbs for our spells. The problem is, not all of us can have that.
And that’s OK.

You are the center of your magic. What you decide is the most important thing.
You decide if the purple craft glitter represents amethyst or not. You put the magic in the water or the cards or the stone.

Without you there would be no magic.

So please remember, having a lot of different tools is great.
But the most important one, the one that makes everything possible in the first place, is you.

- J. S. Morrigan

How do I practice my craft as a new secret witch? I'm incredibly shy and I've only spoke to one person about it (a internet friend who's also a witch) I'm really curious and I really want to practice

Trump has proposed some NASA budget cuts — and one expert is calling it out

  • If congress agrees with Trump’s latest budget proposal, NASA will have about $561 million less to work with in 2018 than it did in 2017.
  • The difference is fairly small — $561 million accounts for roughly a 3% cut from 2017’s budget.
  • With that said, significant programs will meet the chopping block because of it: NASA’s education program will completely shut down, along with at least four other missions related to studying asteroids or understanding Earth’s changing climate. Read more (5/24/17)
