The Ritual MUNIMEN MIASMA Candle (MUNIMEN means ‘protection’- MIASMA means ‘bad air’ in Latin)

I was lead to make this candle blend based on accounts from medieval history. It has been during the time of the Black Plague , four thieves went from house to house to rob those who had succumbed to the plague. After the thieves were captured and tried for their acts of robbery, a judge offered leniency if they would share how they were able to be around those afflicted long and often enough to rob them but not be affected by the illness.

It’s interesting to note here that, during this time of the plague striking Europe, physicians were seen wearing long black robes, wide brimmed hats, and masks that appeared to have a beak. The reason for doing this is that the masks were said to have contained a combination of herbs, spices, and essential oils that the physicians would breathe in order to keep themselves safe from those afflicted with the illness. Their long black robes were also said to be doused in a similar fragrant concoction and current research continues to build upon this theory.

There are as many recipes as there are theories for which aromatics were used during the centuries and here is mine based on historical research from my personal studies, travel and of course, alchemic practices.
