Medusa's Gaze Candle
Celebrate empowerment, overcome obstacles, speak your truth, and channel your authentic inner power with the Medusa's Gaze Candle.
Many recognize Medusa, the mythical woman with snakes for hair, but few recognize the lessons in her story. Stifled by patriarchal pressures upon women, she was once sought for her beauty to appease male pleasure, and then demonized when her power posed a threat to the men who crossed her. Painted as a villain despite being deformed and attacked, Medusa was cast as a monster and eventually beheaded. Medusa's story has turned her from victim to feminist icon in modern cultures, a reclaiming for women to harness their inner nature, heal trauma, and fight male oppression.
Strong and powerful women everywhere - this one is for you! Each candle features a copper disc to represent Perseus's shield, along with quartz, hematite, and tigers eye crystals to represent strength, protection, and courage.
Scent notes: frankincense, amber, and cypress
Hand-poured, 100% soy wax.
