Our Lady of Guadalupe is venerated by Catholics throughout the world as the apparition of the Virgin Mary which appeared on Tepeyac hill in Mexico City to the indigenous Chichimec, Juan Diego. However, before the Spanish conquest, there was a temple of adoration to the goddess Tonantzin on Tepeyac and many Mexicas and other Nahua people believe that on the top of that hill the mother of the gods appeared.
Tonantzin, Coatlicue, Cihuacóatl, or Tetéoinan is “the divine mother” and under the name of “Cihuacóatl/The Serpent Woman,” this goddess also served as a protector of women. The name “Guadalupe” itself is a corruption of the Nahuatl word “Coatlaxopeuh” which means “the one who defeats the snake.”
Whether you view her as Mary or Tonantzin, she is the Divine Mother and can be called on to perform miracles, provide protection, and heal your heart.
Beeswax candles are the finest magical tools. While the superior burn of beeswax is useful for any type of work, the honey-imbued wax is especially perfect for sweetening up a situation. These artisanal beeswax figural candles are individually handcrafted at the Parlour of Wonders.
Choose the color that is appropriate for the work that you are doing.
Red for love or motivation

Purple for regal majesty and empowerment
Green for abundance and fertility
Orange for new ventures and opportunities
Yellow for success, fame or happiness
Pink for friendship or romance
Brown for grounding and stability
White for blessings, clarity, or any other purpose
A simple, but very effective, candle spell using this candle is to apply an appropriate spiritual oil (such as Spirit Guide or Holy Healing oil) in an upward motion to the candle and sprinkle a pinch of Angelica Root on the top and Pink Rose Petals around the base. Light your candle on a Sunday and burn it completely.
These candles are 100% pure beeswax with no fragrances, essential oils or herbs added.
