Witch's Mark is passionate about curating products that assist people in their spiritual journey.
OUR STORY & PHILOSOPHY
Witch's Mark was founded in 2022 by Daryl Lightheart, and combines his love of the craft & passion for creativity. There is something magickal about walking into a metaphysical store when the scent of Nag Champa fills your lungs and you feel like a kid again. Daryl wanted to bring that magick into people's homes with a collection of witchy candles inspired by nature. Being a witch himself and a proud cat-dad Daryl strives to make the lives of our familiars better by donating $1 from the sale of every candle to the MEOW Foundation, a local charity in Calgary, Alberta dedicated to rescuing, feeding, neutering and caring for our feline friends.
Founder & Chief Executive Witch
Witch's Mark strives to curate products that are as natural as possible without compromising quality. Our candles are made from a coconut wax blend that burns cleaner and lasts longer than traditional soy & paraffin wax candles. Scents are inspired by nature and are a custom blend of essential oils and premium phthalate-free fragrance oils. We use wooden wicks made from eco-friendly FSC Certified Wood, which provides a soothing crackling effect. Each candle is crafted with a little bit of magick and is hand poured in Calgary, Alberta.
History of a Witch's Mark
A witch's mark was believed to be a marking somewhere on a witch's body which was used to help identify witches during the witch trials that took place predominately in the 16th century. Those accused of witchcraft were put on trial and their bodies were carefully examined for these markings, which could be anything from moles and skin tags to patches of insensitive skin. The examiners claimed to be able to tell the difference between a natural marking and a witch's mark, which left the life of the accused in the hands of the inquisitor.
Witch's Mark is dedicated to those who were accused, harmed or lost their life during the witch trials.
At Witch's Mark we value community, the environment, peace & spirituality.
