Using candles with ritual can add strength and ambiance. All the colors have different spiritual meanings and can help with different types of spells, so if you’re using candles to aid in your spell, it’s best to understand the energies and meanings of each color.
When you go into a craft store, you’ll find all shape, size and colored canc
White- white is one of the most basic of colors. They work for purity and cleansing but can work with all types of spells with other candles. I add them into all my spell kits and all my personal rituals.
Black- in general, black is the anti-curse/anti-hex color. You use it for breaking any kind of darker magic someone has used against you, it can be used as protection against negative energies as well as banishing (entity as well as negative emotions/energies you’re trying to get rid of.) You can use black and white together as a way of doubling the cleansing and protection powers in a spell.
Green– this is the color used in financial luck and money related spells. It’s also good for a fertile crop, abundance in more than finances and luck in your marriage, or any kind of growth.
Purple– Purple is considered a royal color in general. It is used in spells to gain wisdom as well as divination.
Blue- Blue is a healing color, it’s used to chase away bad energies and depressed moods.
Red- Red is a color of passion, life, death, anger, rage, blood and love. It’s generally lust and anger and can be used for banishing, love spells, sex magick or blood magick.
Pink- Pink is kind of a feminine and baby version of red. You use pink for femininity, lust and love spells, fertility and any time you need a color to represent the feminine.
Yellow- Yellow is typically a color of happiness, joy, motivation, vitality and inspiration/finding your muse.
There are many other colors with magical properties, but these are some of the main colors with their magical uses.
The next thing to look at are if you want to use scents. You can use unscented and burn incense but you can also use candles with earthy or other scents.
You don’t have to use scents at all but using certain scents do help with adding to the atmosphere and feel and can help with adding the energies associated with the scent.
There are different shapes, sizes and styles of candles. Most don’t really have any significance but if you want to burn through a full candle, finding a small tea light may help. If you want to reuse, pillar or tapered candles can be beneficial.
When you’re done, don’t blow candles out- snuff them or let them burn fully out.
