40 Wax - Lizzie Borden & the Borden Murders, Fall River, MA.
Lizzie Borden took an axe, gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.
A completely inaccurate (and certainly not your average nursery rhyme!) but catchy doggerel (verse or words that are badly written or expressed) in regards to Lizzie Andrew Borden, the main suspect in the August 4th, 1892 murders of her Step-mother Abby Borden (who received 19 hits), and her Father, Andrew Borden (struck 11 times), who was acquitted of these crimes due to lack of evidence!
A very interesting story indeed...and one not meant for the faint-of-heart...and neither is our candle!
Our 40 Wax is a handcrafted, 100% American-grown soy wax, cotton-wicked (lead-free), Reiki Blessed candle infused with Dragon's Blood, Black Currant, Pear, Absinthe...and extremely dark history. This creation is crowned with Amethyst, Bloodstone, Garnet & Clear Quartz to enhance the mystery behind it all.
As Always, 30% from the purchases of every candle we handcraft and sell benefits a charitable cause!

Lizzie Borden and the Animal Rescue League of Fall River
On a Sunday afternoon in October of 1913, Helen Leighton, a nurse, and Helen’s friend, Gertrude Baker, a school teacher, met in Lizzie Borden’s parlor to discuss how to care for and what to do with the abused draft horses in the Fall River area. Lizzie, a lover of animals, agreed to help her dear friend Helen. In 1914, Lizbeth became one of the original contributors to the League. The plan was developed to purchase a barn at 474 Durfee Street where the abused draft horses would receive care. Helen Leighton and Gertrude Baker where there from the beginning and became founding members of the League, which was officially incorporated on June 25, 1914.

HOUSEKEEPING: Candles burn best (and longest), when you allow a wax 'pool' to extend completely to the edge of the glass, otherwise your candle will tunnel straight down and the life of your candle will diminish greatly. Ceiling fans and floor fans (any type of moving air!) can also affect the way your candle burns.
