Beloved Set- For Petitions to the Dead and Honoring Your Ancestors - my own formula that includes herbals known for calling the dead (myrrh, lavender, and rose). 10 Tea Candles and Bird Seed offering.
Although this set can be used at any time, upcoming holidays that are associated with the dead include:
31 October Halloween
1 November - All Saints Day
2 November - All Souls Day
1 and 2 November- Dias de Muertes - Days of the Dead (1st for children, 2nd for adults)
7 November (depending on time zone)- Samhain -- 11:30 AM EST Exact 7 November- This year is particularly dynamic, with Mars and Mercury also in play.
Samhain for Wiccans and Witches (celebration to honor the dead) traditionally occurs when the sun is at 15 degrees Scorpio. Festivities can be somber or more enlivened depending upon your practices. Honoring the dead involves personal and cultural energies, making the process unique.
This specific "time" (mathematical calculation) is when it is believed that the veil between the worlds is the thinnest and communication is most possible. The 24-hour period before that time is acceptable for offerings and communication as well, with the idea being the closer you move to the exact time of the astrological event, the more powerful the messages. Some practitioners celebrate the entire month of October through the first week of November. Those individuals who have ancestral altars in their homes will often tell you that activity on and around the altar tends to heighten as the portal begins to open. For those who are particularly susceptible to communication from beyond the grave, additional protective sigils are added on doors and windows to keep out the “other-worldly street-walkers”. A delightfully carved and lit pumpkin to scare away the evil spirits might be added as well.
In general (although traditional practices may differ) candles are lit to give the dead blessings and to make known the path to enlightenment. Water is presented to bring the ancestors the energies they need. Favorite foods (or seed scattered outdoors) is offered to provide nourishment and positive potential for their next incarnation. It is believed that the spirits consume the “essence” of the thing, leaving the husk. Most practitioners completely clean the altar 24 hours after the event, including the removal of all food. Offer fresh water to complete the process.
Offering also includes 1 4x4 poly bag of birdseed to use as outdoor offerings when making petitions or honoring the dead.
All Natural Soy Wax

Tea Candles are packaged in plastic bag. These aromatic soy tea candles are perfect for spells, mini rituals, quarter lights, meditation, and all manner of mental magicks. If long burning pillars aren't for you due to living constraints, a hectic schedule, or simply personal preference -- these little gems pack the same high-quality wax and herbals as the larger candles.
Directions for Use: Place tea candle in a fire- safe holder. These tea candles are meant for a full burn and will last approximately 2 hours. Never leave burning candle unattended, particularly due to the herbals included in wax. Keep flame away from curtains, walls, clothing, and other flammables. Always monitor any burning candle.
Warning: Please use safe burn practices. Any lit candle is a hazard to life and property.
