Types of candles

Types of candles

Any type of candle can be used for candle magic as long as it has been cleansed and consecrated prior to use. Although beeswax candles are higher in price than store bought candles, they are more powerful because they are produced from nature. As with any other tool, the candle made by the practitioner for a specific purpose captures the energy of the practitioner. Many experienced Witches will use only candles they have crafted themselves because of this.

Altar, Incense & Candle Magick

Your Altar

You may use anything that has a flat top.. I use an old trunk with a piece of plywood on it. Be creative.. As for a cover I use white because of it’s kind of a multipurpose color. Although some magic specifies a color then what ever color is specified should be used. Again, be creative… Keep in mind that candle magic is usually done in condensed areas so keep things as simplistic as you can, especially your candlesticks and censors.

 
Incense

 
There are some who believe that incense is unimportant in candle magic. I cannot imagine performing candle magic without the incense. The type that you use may be specified in a specific spell, if that is the case by all means use that. Generally, I use three kings incense as well as vervain. Vervain gives the spell working a little umph. But then again nothing is set in stone.. Be creative.
Incense symbolizes Air… as the smoke rises our thoughts are carried up into the universe.

Candle Magic

Candle Magic

Candle Magic has been around for many, many years, being traced as far back as the Palaeolithic era. It is a very powerful form of sympathetic magic.
There are many factors that play into the art of candle magic. As we know any type of magic that is performed will return to you three fold, whether it be positive or negative. Always keep the Wiccan Rede “An harm to none do what thou wilt” in mind when considering your work. Always keep in mind that magic effect’s the entire world around you. Be very careful what you ask for, for it may well come true. The wording in any type of magic must not be taken lightly, be very careful, concise , and precise, make sure you have covered all possible bases.
Keep in mind that some candle magic has to be repeated over a period of days. Therefore, you will want to place them in an area that will not be disturbed. Do not choose a place where there is a tv, radio noise or disturbances of any kind. Keep in mind to not put candles near curtains and such, as you would not want to burn your house down. Candle magic should always be performed in a low traffic area. That is why a bedroom is really nice for such work.

Lemon Oil
Lemongrass Oil
Peppermint Oil

Ambergris

Ambergris

This scent is the product of sperm whales. Used in aphrodisiac-type oils and perfumes. True ambergis is best avoided because of its origins, if you can’t find artificial ambergris oil, try substituting the following bouquet, or compound, which is very close to true ambergris.

Ambergris Bouquet
Cypress Oil
Patchouly Oil (a few drops)

SPELL AGAINST SLANDER AND GOSSIP

SPELL AGAINST SLANDER AND GOSSIP

Write the name and full birthdate of your gossiping enemy on a piece of slippery elm bark.
Wrap it in a piece of black cloth and say:
(Name of person) be now silent!
Let your bitter tongue be broken!
(Name of person) be now silent!
Let no evil words be spoken!
SO MOTE IT BE!
Bury the cloth-covered bark in a forest or graveyard at night by the light of a pale
waning moon as you visualize that person unable to speak whenever he or she
attempts to spread malicious gossip about you.

LOVERS TRUTH SPELL

LOVERS TRUTH SPELL

You will need: A tall, deep-blue candle peony or lavender oil and parchment (or paper)
On a waxing moon, anoint the candle with the fragrance of lavender or peony by the purest moonlight.
By this same moonlight – and this light only – inscribe the name of your lover on parchment.
Still by moonlight, use the name-paper as a taper to light the candle.
Place the candle upon a fireproof surface, away from a window or curtain,
and rest while the candle burns low. As you lay down your head that night, ask that your
love be open and honest of his actions; ask that he leave off flirtation and reveal true feelings
for you if he has them. Before a week has passed you will have a sign of his true regard.

TRUTH REVEALED SPELL

Moon and tide save help me now,
I seek the truth here not yet found,
For underneath the fog there lies,
new possibilities for I,
So let this night be unlike others,
And let the noble show their colors,
And let the meek and cowards run,
For now the moon seeks out her sun,
And by the power that is three,
So as I will it, so mote it be.

TRUTH SPELL

TRUTH SPELL

A white candle
A picture of the person or just a small piece of paper to put the persons name.
Get the white candle and light it up (at night before you go to sleep) and say:
“To see the truth, to know the way, I cast a spell in every day, buy the power of three,
I conjure thee to give thy truth, unto me.”
Then blow out the candle while saying the persons name you want to put the truth spell on.
In the morning, light the candle again, say the spell again and say the person aloud, then
blow out the candle while saying the persons name…and say it through the smoke of the
candle so it can work.

THREE TIMES THREE SPELL

THREE TIMES THREE SPELL

To have someone see his errors.
This is a three times three spell to use on people who were corrupt in their ways.
It has no negative consequence unless you think ill of the person while casting the spell.
Wind in the north, run through the trees
Three times three, let them see, let them see
Sands of the east, rich soils beneath
Three times three, set them free, set them free
Fires in the south, awaken from sleep
Three times three, let them see, let them see
Water of the west, flow to the seas
Three times three, set them free, set them free
It works best if you have something representing that person, like a strand of their hair
or a fingernail. The spell may not work instantaneously, you may have to repeat it for
the person to see error in their ways.
