Candles are a basic tool in witchcraft, one that even someone in the broom closet can get easy access to. And luckily, there are a ton of different colors of candles so you can always find one that will work with the spell you’re doing.
Candle magick is one of the oldest and simplest forms of magick, and one that beginner witches tend to start with.
Some form of candle magick can be found in almost all religions and spiritual practices around the world, even those that claim to not practice witchcraft. Because of this ubiquity, there’s no definitive answer on when candle magick first began.
It’s a form of natural magick utilizing time and the fire element with a focused intention to direct energy towards your desire.
Each color has a different meaning and use in magick, so knowing those meanings can help you buy the right one.
White candles, first and foremost, can be used for all magick. They are the blank sheet you can use when no other candle seems right, or you’re out of another candle color.
It does have specific uses though, making it a powerful candle color to choose for spells that are for spirituality, peace, findinging your higher self, purity, cleansing, healing, blessings, protection, truth, enlightenment, prophecy, clairvoyance, rest, joy, and healing emotional turmoil.
Black candles are perfect for banishing, absorbing negativity, protection, binding, destruction, cursing, chaos magick, and creating confusion.
