Hello friends, Welcome to the first blog post for HOOF & PAW. My name is Madeleine, creator and owner! I have been wanting to start doing blog posts for some time now as there is so much I’d love to share with you! Today is a very light overview of why I started the business, how the candles work, what’s in store for HOOF & PAW this year and what you’ll expect to find with future upcoming blogs too.
WHY CRYSTALS AND CANDLES ?
As many of you know, the reason I started creating crystal candles was to quite simply, enhance our wellbeing. To be able to capture positive energy to literally and energetically release light into our spaces, working on our shadows and lifting us up.
Each candle has a very specific essential oil blend. Specially created to work in unison with each crystal and enhancing the energy when lifted into our spaces. The combination of crystal energy and essential oils is extremely powerful. When adding that combination into a candle it creates this incredible focus when lit. From the moment it’s lit you are setting the intention of bringing that energy into your space.
The candles are essentially beautiful tools to enhance our lives for the better. Literally and energetically lighting us up.
For some it may only be a subtle energetic shift and for others it may feel very powerful. I am in constant awe with how our bodies know exactly what we need. All we need to do it listen. Our intuition really is our biggest super power. Trust your intuition if you are drawn to a particular candle. If you feel like lighting it in the middle of the day then DO IT - there will always be a reason and you’ll thank yourself for it later.
WHAT'S IN STORE FOR HOOF & PAW THIS YEAR?
✨ This year I’ll be working on the next two candles in the collection. That’s right, TWO MORE. The collection will draw a close at 7 candles, one to work with each chakra/ energy hub in our bodies. The next two are the Root chakra and the Crown chakra. Both of which I’m really excited to start creating and working with. I’ve got some ideas flowing with which crystals and essential oils I’ll be working using but I'd love to hear your thoughts as well so let me know in the comments :)
✨ You will also see some collaborations this year which I am extremely excited about. I wanted to bring in elements of wellbeing which work hand in hand alongside HOOF & PAW and the candles. I can’t wait to share more with you in the coming weeks/ months!
✨ Some of you may have seen already that I have just launched a book and oracle card shop collection. These books and oracle cards are hand selected from my own personal experience as well as highly recommend from friends, colleagues and YOURSELVES! Right now, it’s a small collection but it will most certainly be growing so once again, I’d love your input. Let me know about your favourite crystal, wellbeing and mindset books or oracle cards. It all goes hand in hand when working with the candles and something I feel could be extremely helpful for whoever is guided to them.

WHAT WILL FEATURE ON THE BLOGS?
I will be talking all about crystals, essential oils, candles, rituals, tips, tricks and tools to use for enhancing our wellbeing and our on going growth on this earth. It can seem like a long bumpy ride sometimes and it’s my aim to try and make it a bit easier for us all. It won’t just be me either, I’ll be bringing in guest bloggers too specialising in other areas of wellbeing, which you may well be guided to look into further.
