Mamma Phemie, Voudou Queen Ancestor Candle
As part of our Ancestor Candles Who's Who in Hoodoo History series, we present this authentic presentation of Mamma Phemie, a Voudou Queen who lived in New Orleans in the 1800s. Her style was an eclectic blend of Voudou, Hoodoo, and Spiritualism, along with a healthy dose of debauchery. She thought religion and spirituality should be fun or it served no useful purpose. She worked with St. Maroon, St. Anthony, and Li Grand Zombi and crafted wax effigies from candle remains. She is known as the Voudou Queen who famously agreed to do a working for Lyle Saxon, who had solicited her services under false pretenses. The ritual became too intense for him and he ended up crawling on his belly out of the temple and into the streets with a stomach ache and an attitude adjustment. Burn this candle to honor this fearless New Orleans-born ancestor.
Creole Moon's fixed glass encased candles will burn for approximately seven days or 120 hours. They can be reused once they have burned down as vases for holding flowers, turned into a container spell to keep on your altar or refilled with wax to burn again. They are simply too beautiful to throw away and the creative conjurer will find many possibilities for using the decorative glass container once the original wax has burned down.
