Meet the Maker


Cailleach Candles is a one witchy woman shop based in Ireland.

I specialize in handmade crystal candles but my crafting skills are growing fast and I plan to expand my products.

All of my candles are 100% soy wax, with cotton wicks, dried herbs and flowers and natural crystals.

My products are 100% vegan and cruelty free. 
Each candle is made and packaged with love and intent, each one is cleansed with Palo Santo before shipping.

Now with Bio-degradable glitter !

An Cailleach

'An Cailleach' translates to'The Witch' is a divine hag among the most ancient dieties venerated in Ireland:

She whose realm lies in the ice and cold of winter.

Once it was said that she ruled all the world.

When the green things slept for untold aeons beneath her thick icy cloak, until she was given cause for great sorrow and wept floods across the land.

Her heart melting to a thaw and letting loose the rivers.

As she wept she dropped many large rocks from her apron which became mountains and hills, and her hammer shaped the valleys below.

Some even go so far as to say that from her sprang all the spirits and Sidhe of the world.

She grows old in the Autumn and becomes younger as the Winter passes, until Spring she relinquishes her hold and lets he Summer flowers blossom.

Plant a tree with every order

At Cailleach Candles we want to do all that we can to ensure we have a positive impact on our planet. We already do everything possible to make sure our packaging is completely sustainable. This year we wanted to give back by planting a tree for every order made on the website to combat our carbon emissions. These will be planted in areas that need them the most, all over the world. I can't wait to see our little forest grow with your help.
