Wisps of smoke that rise from the corner of a room, soothing scents and candles that might just light up the dark corners of your soul are a few things that come to mind when we think of magic. To the commoner, occult is uncharted territory; one that includes the good and the bad, some hope and some craft. Witchcraft is practiced to this day and there are quite a few people that swear by it.
Stacy Rapp, the owner of Enchantments Inc, says, “A lot of it is about manifesting positive change in your life. Anyone can do it, but not everyone wants to.” Enchantments Inc is NYC’s oldest occult store. Located in East Village, it has been open since 1982. Enchantments Inc does not endorse products that harm people and has a very dedicated and knowledgeable staff that can help you around the store.
If you plan on visiting the store, make sure you buy the 7-day spell candles. With spells carved into the wax, they are meant to burn continuously for 7 days to achieve the intended result. Enchantments Inc has candles custom made for you based on what you’re looking for and what you want. Here’s how the candles are made.
The candle is taken out of the jar and the wick is removed. The curved top is sloughed away and a pentacle is carved deep into it. The spell is then carved into the side along with your astrological sign and other details pertaining to the spell. Once that’s done, you will have to taste a drop of honey. Another drop is placed at the bottom of the jar and a secret-ingredient makes its way into it to draw energy. A spoonful of incense is lit and circled around the jar after which it is tipped into it. A lid is placed over it to keep the smoke inside. After that, spell-appropriate essential oil is rubbed into the candle and metallic glitter is sprinkled. The glitter settles into the carvings and once it is thoroughly rubbed in, it is put back into the jar.
You could get spells for love, money, healing and so many more. Get one for love this valentine’s and if you want to learn more about it, they conduct workshops. Wear something that is glitter approved and get Witchy!
