A Quick Guide to Candle Spells

By: Joan Baytiong


Candles are lit in most of the ceremonies, it embodies earth, water, air, fire, and the spiritual element. They come in many styles, colors, and shapes and are sometimes scented as well. Primitive people used it as well to measure time. Little did we know that it can be a tool to manifest our intentions. “Lighting candles is one of the oldest and most traditional ways to let the universe know specifically what you want.” -Dearly Departed Apothecary and Candace Looft once said.

For new practitioners, be mindful of the rule of three: “Anything you cast or put out there—negative or positive—returns to you threefold,” says Looft. It is strongly suggested to cleanse your aura before gathering the tools for your rituals to draw you the right essentials needed.

You might be wondering how effective it is to set your intentions using candle magic? It is more about you and how pure your intention is “Yes, staying true to the elements of the craft is important, but don’t get so caught up in the materials that you lose sight of intention. It’s important to work through spell-casting prior, and write out the intention and gather your supplies. Keep a book to write down any spells and materials used. That way you can document what has and hasn’t worked in the past,” says Looft.



Gather all the supplies such as candles with an appropriate size color, and scent depending on your intention. If you want to dress your candle with oils and herbs just feel free to do so, have a pen, and a journal ready as well.
Set up your workspace and make sure that it doesn’t have a curtain that hangs around and consider as well the kind of clothing you want to wear. The same goes for your long hair, put it in a bun or a ponytail to keep it safe.
Carve your candle – any pointed objects to form a sign is perfectly fine. You can either carve a dollar sign, a word and a heart for the chant that you are casting. Carving is not a necessary part of the spell but it is up to you just make sure to have an extra candle.
Dress your candle – using a plain spelt old olive oil works just fine if you can’t find anything. Dressing your candle with oil from bottom to top means positive and means negative from top to bottom. After it has been oiled, roll it to a powdered herbs mixture or sprinkle it the same way on how you put oil in it.
Light up your candle- Use a match or a lighter or whatever you have on hand. Sit down, meditate, envision whatever you want to happen, focus your attention and energy while it burns. Keep in mind that this is the most important part of your spelling, so better to spend more time on this. Once you are done, puff the candle or wait until it has finished. If you want to perform another spell keep it in a safe place and renew your intention. Once the candle has burned down just simply bury the residue or dispose of it properly. ATTENTION! Never leave your candle unattended while it’s burning or else everything will mess up.
