Mami Wata Devotional Candle
Mami Wata is the Mother of the Waters who enters our dreams when she leaves the water. Originating with the Bambara people from Senegal, she is most famously known in mermaid form and can manifest as male or female. She is the Mother of all life. She leads an army of white beings like the cadavers lost at sea, and is often depicted holding a snake. She can be petitioned for wealth, power, fertility and children. Mami Wata is an important deity in the New Orleans Voudou pantheon.
Voodoo Mama'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.
