Welcome to the Runes collection. The Runes are a Norse alphabet that have been used in divination since around 150 AD. In the Elder Futhark, there are 24 runes (plus a blank rune), and each symbol has a host of meanings. I have been casting the runes for nearly 20 years, and they have deep personal meaning to me.
These candles are appropriate for burning during meditation and spellwork, as well as just to enjoy their lovely scents.

TYR - Victory In Battle: We will prevail, but not without cost. Dragon's blood, leather, black musk, and bitter orange.

Chris's note: This is the other candle included in part 2 that was originally supposed to be released in part 3 later this year. Again, I felt strongly that now was the time for it to be of most use to those who would like to use it ritually. It is named for the God Tyr, who is closely associated with war, law, and justice. Some accounts state he is a creator-God whose role was somewhat usurped by Odin in the Norse pantheon. The rune Tyr denotes great victory in battle, but not without cost. It was Tyr that bound the wolf, Fenrir, but not after the loss of his hand. 

In our battle against injustice, there is still such a long way to go. Tyr, in this context, also centers for me all those who have been taken from us, even as we continue the fight.

Tyr also warns us that victory is assured, but will require all of our energy to achieve. We cannot be complacent. It explicitly condemns oppression. It stresses the importance of not only the battle itself, but in all of the ways we must prepare to sustain ourselves throughout a long struggle. Build your foundation strong to last through the fight, and justice will prevail.

Racism and white supremacy / white separatism have no place in Norse belief and Paganism, and those who espouse such beliefs are an insult to their Gods. At Sihaya & Company, we believe in racial equality and are committed to anti-racist work. We also feel strongly that racists should not be allowed to take our sacred symbols and use them for hate without a fight. 10% of the Runes Collection sales will be donated to the Black Visions Collective

The glitter I use is safe for use in candles, and the ultrafine particles will not clog your wick.

Turnaround time for candles is 2 weeks. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may occasionally receive a professionally-printed label with a handwritten scent name, similar to what is used in the Secret Menu candles. We are experiencing delays from our label printing service, and would rather not hold up your orders. If you feel strongly about receiving a particular label, please email us at sihayaandcompany@gmail.com and we will do our best to accomodate your request.
