Candle MagicFree Candle Spells - Simple Magick Candle Spells For You

Until 3000 BCE, oil lamps were the sole source of night light. Soon after, people found out that by using fat that solidified at room temperature or other

substances such as beeswax, bayberry, candelilla, etc, they could create portable lamps.

Now there are many types of candles including tallow (animal fat), beeswax and paraffin wax, a byproduct of petroleum processing. People are encouraged to use Earth friendly candles made out of soy beeswax with cotton wicks.

To use candles in rituals, follow these steps: Choose the color that is appropriate for the intention. If in doubt, use a white candle. Charge the candle by holding it in your hand and energizing it with your own power and intentions. Carve the candle with your intentions.

Dress the candle by anointing it with oil that is also suited for the purpose of the spell. Sometimes, the candle is also rolled in herbs to intensify the effects of the spell. As the wax melts, your intentions are passed on to the Cosmos. We have to make sure that we have given strict written instructions to the Universe.

Here are some candle spells:

Protection for Pets

Get two large, fat candles. Carve both the candles in the shape of your pet. Or write the name of your pet and some of his/her attributes. Also carve some protective runes on the candle. Anoint one of the candles with protective oil and allow it to burn. Keep the other one for yourself.
