Writing Candle Spells

     Candle rituals have been in existence for centuries. Your first candle ritual was when you were about two or three years old. The candles were lit on your birthday cake and your mommy told you to close your eyes, make a wish and blow out your candles.

     Candle spells work; for the most part, on that same principle. You light a candle, maybe close your eyes and repeat a spell while visualizing it coming true. It is a combination of a need or desire and the ability to visualize the outcome.

     Candle spells are probably the easiest type of spell and the easiest to have success with if they are done correctly and you truly believe. Candle spells can be carried out in a simplified manner or can be made very complicated. It all depends on how much time you want to put into a ritual.

     It can be as simple as lighting a green candle and chanting…..money, money, money, come to me. (Remember your laws of three when writing your chant for any spell.) Or it can also be very long and complicated lasting several days with the repositioning of the candles each day. The choice is; as always, yours to make depending on the experience that you have.

     Once you have decided your intent and prepared yourself, you are ready to choose your candle. There are many colours, scents, herbs, elements, directions and day associations you will use when choosing a candle. You should be looking for the most natural candles available. You don’t want the chemicals added in a slow-burn candle and if you are going to be adding essential oils to create a scent for your spell, you wouldn’t want to get scented candles either. (In my case; I am allergic to soy so I have to locate candles without soy in them.

     There are three things to remember when dealing with candle magick:

Do not use matches! The sulphur in matches is a banishment tool and will lessen the effects of candle magick or even make it completely useless. Use a lighting stick, an incense match or a lighter to light the wick.

Do not blow out the candle! This is considered extremely rude to the fire element. Use a snuffer or wet your fingers and pinch it out. Just do not blow it out!

Please use common sense! Do not use sprays around the flames, be sure the candle is on a nonflammable base, keep away from low hanging cloth (such as sleeves) and most of all keep children away.

     The candle you use should be virgin…that is unused. The reason for not using anything but virgin materials in magick, the residual energy within used materials may disturb your workings and negate their effectiveness. Once you have your candle you need to anoint it with oil. The best oils to use are natural ones which you can find in occult shops or health food stores although, olive oil will work just fine.

     You need to rub the candle with the oil from the middle outward to the ends. As you are doing this you need to be thinking of your desired goal. Then meditate on your intent after lighting the candle. Read your spell or chant your appropriate mantra.

     You should write your own spells and rituals if you are able. Think of your desires then make a simple poem that tells about your desire. This is all about the power of positive thinking and creative visualization! If you can do these things, you will send those vibrations out into the universe and eventually they will come to be.

     When you have completed your ritual, allow your candle to burn completely away. You do not need to stay with the candle after the ritual but make sure that it is safe and the hot wax will not cause damage or fire. It should only be used in that ritual then allowed to burn away or be disposed of afterwards.


     Candles in the craft are used to help increase a spells power or to influence a particular power. The colour of the candle will directly correlate with the type of magick workings you are attempting to achieve. The different colours of candles each have their own symbolism.


     The language of the candle is expressed by the movement of the flame, the wafting of the smoke and the burning and snapping of the wax. Once you light your candle, free your thoughts and focus on the flame. Watch the dance and take note of the rising smoke. Listen to the wax crackle as you begin to visualize your intent. These are just as important as the colour and scent that you are using for your spell.
