Our Black Flame Candle is a witchy nod to one of our favorite Halloween witchy movies starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as the witchy Sanderson Sisters of Salem, Massachusetts. In the movie, the Black Flame Candle is a magical candle “...made from the fat of a hanged man. Legend says it will raise the spirits of the Dead when lit by a virgin on Halloween during a full moon.” Just as the name describes, it literally burned a black flame but shines no candlelight, likely because it is dark magic. The images displayed on this lovely pillar candle tell the story of the Sanderson sisters being hanged for witchcraft, and of their curse to be brought back by one day by the lighting of this candle. The original artwork is inspired by that of the candle shown in the film (as close as we could manage to replicate) and also historical images of 17th century woodcuts from the witch trials era, with some creative liberties taken. It is a handmade art candle each with slight variations so no two are exactly alike! Place this decorative witchy candle in your home, as Halloween decor, as an homage to Hocus Pocus, or as part of your Sanderson Sister cosplay, and you are sure to impress! Our candle features an original design and measures a HUGE 9” tall x 3” diameter and is made with an ivory, slightly scented (vanilla) vegetable & paraffin wax candle, with the image printed directly into the wax in intricate detail. It is a battery powered “flameless” candle (as shown in photo, with wax melted down the side, flame actually flickers abd moves, and is painted “black”). Please see our shop for additional illustrated candles, scented apothecary candles, fragrance oils and other ritual and witchcraft items.
