Amunet is a primordial goddess in ancient Egyptian religion and translates to “the hidden one” - she fights an inner demon, a darkness that lived inside her.
Amunet is depicted as a half-woman, half-serpent with wings often depicted as ostrich or crane. Her head was usually depicted as serpent and her headdress would be adorned with a cobra or serpent a top of it. Amunet was worshiped in terms of creation of life, nature, darkness, fertility, the moon, change, growth, death and funerals and linked with air, invisibility, mystery, silence, serpents and darkness. Her powers are connected to stillness and obscurity.
In hieroglyphs, she is represented as a woman with the sign of the West (a semi circle on top of one long and one short pole), thus she has been given the title “She of the West”. In Ancient Egypt, the West is the where the dead enter the underworld and Amunet is believed to be as the goddess who welcomes their entrance into the Kingdom of Osiris.
Amunet was believed to have been the creator of life in Egypt & was believed to have been able to pro-create independently without a male consort. As she was creator of life and nature, she was also creator of death and darkness. She was often having to fight the constant battle of life and death, good and evil in her own mind and soul.
This black candle is created to honour and worship Amunet - with cedarwood oil and frankincense (linked to her consort Amun-Ra), dried patchouli, basil and rosemary to represent the afterlife. A feather to represent her wings and a serpentine stone for her cobra headress and half-serpent form.
Each candle is handmade to order therefore will be slightly different every time - sometimes we substitute the ingredients for ones with similar intentions if they are proving hard to get hold of! We can also tweak any of the ingredients if you have allergies or preferences etc- just add a little note when you order!
