100% BEESWAX CANDLES
Only natural beeswax features a pollen infused color and a floral nectar scent–it is literally filled with flowers, trees, and their sweet essence. 100% beeswax is the slowest and cleanest burning wax on Earth. A time-honored natural resource, beeswax candles cleanse the air on a molecular level. Emitting negative ions which neutralize positive ions; airborne allergens like dust, dander, pollen, smoke. Traditional beeswax candles by Alysia Mazzella are made in Upstate NY using sustainably sourced NY beeswax from family-owned apiaries.
FOURFOLD THE ORACLE
May 2019, I self-published Fourfold the Oracle. A limited-edition oracle set including 64 cards and an 83-page guidebook. The deck features hand-crafted illustrations by inspired collagist Fon Borrello. The books, also crafted by hand, feature letterpress covers, hand cut paper, hand assembled pages, hand waxed thread (using beeswax, of course), and hand sewn binding.
We’ve created 150 sets that won’t be reprinted (ever). This oracle system is uniquely based on the number four, as a source of stability and harmony. The guidebook includes directions for use, the meaning of each card, the houses, and inspiration. Ideal for collectors or beginners.
