Hi everyone, here we have below an article provided by Kat our resident witch explaining candle magic, enjoy 🙂
Candle magic varies from witch to witch from path to path, but what can’t be denied is how easy and accurate this form or magic can be.
Over the decades candle magic has changed due to the production and marketing of coloured candles.
Some paths advise using a specific coloured candle for certain spells ( pink for love spells) for the spell to work accurately. Below are a few examples of coloured candles and their purposes.
WHITE🌠protection and cleansing
YELLOW🌠happiness and Confidence
ORANGE🌠creativity and mental focus
PINK🌠sex and romance
RED🌠aggression and physical attraction
BLUE🌠healing and self Confidence
PURPLE🌠 spiritual guidance
GREEN🌠abundance and money
BLACK🌠negativity and hex work.
However, like I have mentioned in previous articles it is my belief that for a spell to work and gain the maximum results is to have the correct intent, not the equipment used in the spell. ( see “a witches intent”).
It is common knowledge that I am a bloodline traditional witch ( old path) which means that my spells derive from an era where coloured candles amongst other equipment weren’t widely available, because of this for our candle magic a white/cream candle is all that is needed.
Traditional candle magic involves you scratching (inscribing) what the spell is (protection /love etc) into the candle then anointing the candle with a specific anointment oil, using Intent at the point of inscribing and anointing to add power to the spell.
To make anointment oil you should select 3 herbs which work for the spell purpose ( see useful herbs part 1),then Infusing a base oil such as almond, extra virgin or baby oil with the selected herbs. This part ideally should be done over 24 hours but if you are low on time 3 hours will be fine.
Once the candle is anointed burn the candle down continuously, so make sure you will be at home and never leave the candle unattended!!
Once a single candle spell has been mastered you can then advance to using two candles.
Maybe a love spell for example,
Into one candle inscribe ur loves name and Into the other the spells purpose.
All candles stumps should be buried or thrown down Flow at a river or stream.
As always enjoy and be safe.
