Embalming Spice: 9oz Casket Wicked Candle

Embalming Spice: 9oz Casket Wicked Candle

Hand poured 9oz soy spell candles in a gorgeous matte black lidded ceramic tumbler with an approximate 60 hour burn time. These candles contain a wooden wick, carefully hand cut from a used casket and treated carefully to function as a merrily crackling wooden wick.


Scent notes: Rich warm spices float on a current of creamy vanilla, and faint whispers of citrus.


About the Magic: Burn it with whatever you'd like to preserve held in your mind.


Character: Smells like fall... Christmas. 


Imagine: There is art in the doing and art in the knowing. Still, one does not desire to be the subject. 


Somewhere in the quiet the embalmer blends cinnamon, cardamom, clove, ginger. Honey stirred into wine, pine resin, warmed against the palms. They smile to themselves, considering these warm scents that evoke memories of pies, cups of chai, holidays, family, and home. The embalmer uses those spices as they have been used throughout history - to prepare the dead. Contains honey and beeswax, gathered from caskets and mausoleums in aging cemeteries. Notes of embalming spice, honey, wine.

  • Shipping Damages or Losses

    In a perfect world, a section like this one would not be necessary, but sadly, the postal service has been damaging packages more and more of late. Mortellus wishes they could replace every single one in the rare instance that this happens (and sometimes does) but can't in every instance. If you'd like shipping insurance, reach out before placing your order (tracking numbers are always provided). Otherwise, if something goes sideways in the mail, reach out and Mortellus will do all that they can to assist, but as a general policy: Mortellus is not responsible for items damaged or lost in shipping, and cannot offer replacements.
