Access & Availability
Despite being nessacary to make the land near the Omyhx Thicket safely habitable, and widely spread in those area's, Purple Candles are not easy to get by for the average person. This is mostly due to thier price, which is so high because the limited availablity of herbs used to produce the warding effect. The people are imensely grateful that thier Emperor maintaints nearly all Purple Candles in the whole Nefadric Empire from the Imperial Coffers.
In essence a Purple Candle is a sencented candle with a particular blend of herbs. The warding effect is obtained by adding an oil to the wax of the candle, made from exotic herbs, which is the largest challange of the manufacturing progress: the correct alchemical preperation of the herbs, as a low quality blend will lead to headaches and skin irritations, in the worst case the blend can become toxic enough to cause lethal inflamation of resperatory systems ultimatily leading to asphxiation.
