5 minutes with.... Semra From Mama Moon Candles



Moon Ritual: Mama Moon Candles

Today on Moon to Moon we are lucky enough to have Semra from Mama Moon candles telling us about her journey from Stylist to candle maker!! I first discovered her beautiful candles a year or so ago via Instagram and have been intrigued to know a little more of what goes on behind the scenes for a while....so...

1)   Hi Semra, Can you tell us a little bit about yourself  and what led you to making candles"

Hey, yes sure? I am a very sensitive and loyal scorpio! I like to practice feel good magic.. I love the whole psycho- spiritual aspect of it.  I guess I would consider myself an eclectic witch who uses a little of this and a little of that! 

My journey to making candles has been varied, I was a fashion stylist for about 11 years, I wasn?t enjoying it for multiple reasons.  I decided to quit and go to University to study psychology, I loved learning all the theories, but the whole rats and stats of it all was something that I couldn?t cope with.. I?m way too spiritual! ? So I quit and my best friend and I decided to do something courageous and bonkers and set up a kickstarter and raised money to buy a motor-home and perform our comedy show in the back of! It was a total passion project and was so much fun, stressful at times, but wouldn?t change that experience for anything..

While I have had my various jobs on the go I have always been in to healing, rituals and mixing oil blends and herbs? all this is very natural to me and has really helped and empowered me through some of life's rocky times,  I wanted to create something that would make people feel good and was an accessible way to create a mini ritual at home.
2) What is different about Mama Moon soy based candles to the mass produced ones available in big shops"

Big machines aren?t mixing them up, I am! I?m in my kitchen,  I?m heating the wax and mixing in the oils that have been infused with crystals, and I'm  pouring them in to the jars all myself? Each one is individually made by me, with love, care and magic!..  I create a protective circle and put a lot of positive intention in to them.  It?s a very personal experience and I love that my customers really feel that connection with them?

3) You have mixed together two of my personal favorite scents oud and rose in your 'Love Manifestation' candle. What was the inspiration behind the scent and what led you to this combination "

The first time I ever smelt oud was on the glamorous Arab ladies in the cosmetics department in Selfridges! The smell is so powerful and potent, a total heady aphrodisiac, which is why it goes so well with rose which is the  universal go to smell that has signified love for centuries? Together they can be quite  hypnotic!!

4) What candle do you light when you have had a stressful day" 
Oh my its so hard to decide! Moon Ritual is my number on...
