Modern Magick is an expression of nature, of beauty, of luxury, of health, and of the invisible, enchanting energy that weaves through our every day lives.
The blossoming baby business is the love child of Bree, a 26-year-old Queensland born "hippie at heart" with a Bachelor Degree in Creative Writing and a lifelong love of nature.
The birth of her creations started with a chance sighting of a thirty second video clip on Facebook outlining how to make DIY candles at home. They made it sound so simple! However, after her first (and many more) failed attempts, she realised "easy" definitely wasn't the right word for the task at hand - but by that point Bree had made it her mission to master this scientific magick they call "chandlery". That's really what candle making is - part science, part magick.
All of her creations are designed and crafted by her own hand in her rustic country shack in southern Tasmania, using both native and imported materials and ingredients. She uses only natural ingredients - she believes there is no place for poison in, on and surrounding our bodies.
At this time she is offering for sale a range of candles, but has plans to expand her line to include a variety of all natural bath and beauty products, as well as other unique home wares.
DESIGNED + MADE IN
Where do you get your inspiration?
"From both the natural and supernatural worlds. I was raised to have a deep respect and love for animals and nature; combine that with my lifelong fascination with the concept of magick and the occult; then add both a genetic and nurtured flare for creativity... and you have Modern Magick."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"My favourite piece might actually be something I haven't yet finished making... It's basically a Pagan version of a dream catcher, if you will - similar in appearance, but with a pentagram as the centre piece rather than the traditional spider web-esque design that is synonymous with classic dream catchers."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"Essential oils, by far! When I first started experimenting with chandlery (candle-making) I was using synthetic fragrance oils and they gave me splitting headaches; that's when I knew it had to be natural or nothing. Essential oils will heal your headache rather than cause it - I'll never look back."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"In the near future I aim to complement my range of candles with all natural bath and beauty products. If you can name it, it's probably something I've thought about creating! The beauty industry is flooded with dangerous chemicals and empty promises - this is something I dream of changing."
Describe your products in three words...
"Magickal. Natural. Timeless."
