Futhark: The runes are a divination system with deep roots in Norse mythology and culture. Derived from ancient alphabets, the runes are a series of symbols reportedly revealed to the the god Odin as he hung upside-down from the World Tree, Yggdrasil. There, pierced by a spear, he gazed into the Well of Urd, where the Norns preside, until their wisdom was granted to him.

Carved into wood or stones, the runes are cast for advice and soothsaying. The most common configuration is the 25-rune set known as the Elder Futhark, which takes its name from the first six letters of the runic alphabet. It contains 24 runes and the blank rune of the unknowable, Wyrd.

The scent of a Scandinavian wildwood: fresh woods, lingonberry, and bayberry.

This 8oz candle tin measures 3" wide by 2" deep, and holds approximately 6.5 oz of wax by weight. The wax is topped with an overspray of iridescent glitter. The glitter used in my candles is safe for use in candles, and the ultrafine particles will also not clog your wick!
