Information on the Meaning and Uses of the Samhain Altar Kit and Tools
Samhain Spell Candle: This 7 inch spell candle is orange and black with a black obsidian stone embedded into the top. This herb charged candle can burn for 20+ hours if the wick is trimmed to .25 inches. Please make sure to remove the paper before burning.
Glass Candle Holder: This glass holder is for your Samhain spell candle. Letting some of the wax drip on the bottom of the holder and placing the candle on top will secure the candle for long lasting use.
Brass Bell This 2 inch altar bell can be used to mark the specific points during ritual like beginnings, changes, end, etc. Bells are frequently associated with the sounds of the Spirits.
Brass Censer: Measuring approximately 2 inches this censer represents the Element of Air, the direction of East and is a perfect tool to burn your incense
Samhain Incense: Our exclusive 13 Moons Samhain incense is in a 2 x 3 inch bag, has hints of cinnamon and clove and needs no charcoal. Pinch a small pile of it into a triangle and light the top. Incense is used by most ancient traditions to carry your communication to the spirit world.
Tumbled Stones: 1 carnelian tumbled stone and 1 black obsidian tumbled stone are included in your Samhain Altar Kit. Carnelian is a natural stone used for protection, energizing, creation, creativity, healing and stimulating emotions. Black obsidian is lava cooled so fast that the minerals within do not have a chance to form and is thus a naturally occurring glass. It has strong connections to Samhain and can be used for grounding, balancing and stabilizing energy, protection, divination, and centering.
Candles: 1 orange, 1 purple, 2 black and 2 white chime candles, along with 6 star chime holders, are included in your Samhain Altar Kit. Your black and white candles for the altar are representative of many things, such as the Gods and Goddesses, the left-hand and right-hand paths (with the Witch or Magician walking the balance between), the Yin and Yang, duality, etc. The orange and purple candles are representative of Samhain color energies.
Altar Cloth: Your ritual altar cloth measures approximately 24 x 24 inches. It is black with a gold and white Celtic design and a triple moon pentacle with fringed borders. Altar cloths are used in sacred areas for protection during your rituals. Use a cloth on your altar table to protect the surface, as you turn the mundane into magickal. Cloths are used to decorate and create a sacred place for your altar tools. Your focus is on your altar to honor life, bless your tools and work magick.
Samhain Oil: .25 ounce of 13 Moons' exclusive Samhain Oil is blended to add strength and success to your spell working. You may anoint your candles and other tools, anoint yourself and others before a ritual and add this oil to your ritual bath or washes for added strength.
Altar Tile: This is a 3 inches silver pentacle altar tile. The ritual pentacle tile was traditionally used for protection, blessing other items, and as the focal point of strength and meditation while casting spells and other ritual and ceremonial work. Altar pentacles are usually feminine representing the element Earth and the direction North.
Silver Pentacle Chalice: Your chalice is adorned with a pentacle and represents the element of Water and the direction of West. Silver has a connection to the Moon and feminine energy.
