Burning candles for spiritual purposes goes back to ancient times and the belief that a lit candle connects our physical world with the other side.

Each magical tradition has its own relationship with candles. From the color of the candle, to the size and shape of the candle, to whether you incorporate oils, herbs and crystals, all of these can impact the ritual used with the candles.
It’s important to do your research before working with candles, so look for books that explain candle magic in a way that matches how you want to work with candles.
These books can guide you through selecting the right color for your intention. They instruct you on the proper procedures for dressing your candle. They walk you through rituals and spells to correctly burn your candles and how to read any predictions or revelations in the way the wax melts.
Candles are powerful, but so is knowledge, so make sure you have the information you need before proceeding.
