quote on label:
The Moon turns the tides
She turns the tides in me
As my wise blood flows
So I honour thee.

In native traditions, women "on their moon" were afforded an honored place of retreat known as a moon lodge. Here they rested, released their blood to the earth and harnessed the powerful visionary energy that comes with moontime. The information that came from the dreams and visions of moontime women was seen as sacred and used as a source of inspiration and prophesy for the entire community.
This candle was created to help us as women reclaim the sacredness of our blood and our connection to our natural cycles~ebb and flow, giving and receiving, doing and being.
The book, music and movie recommendations listed below are ones that I especially enjoy during my own moontime, with chocolate, hot bubbly foot baths and plenty of rest.
