Light this candle for:
Dark secrets, gingerbread sins, abject wickedness, and babushka scarves.

The Witch’s Witch; riding in on her mortar and pestle, Baba Yaga is one of the oldest villains in literature. We find her bone house (or house with chicken feet depending upon which version you’ve read) waiting for us in the halls of Russian folklore. This candle will softly fill your home with scents of strudel, spice and a marked note of irresistible wickedness.

“And on my life I would never suggest to you that stories cannot be forgotten in the bone, even when a brother or a wizard or a rifle says you must, you must forget it, it never happened; there is only the world as it is now, and there has never been another, can never be any other.”
— Baba Yaga in Deathless by Catheryne M. Valente
