Steps to follow when lighting a spell candle
Before lighting your candle, it is very important you physically cleanse them. Before reaching you, they go through many hands, and you don't know what kind of energy they might be holding on to.
To cleanse your candles, wet a piece of cotton or cloth with equal parts rubbing alcohol or water (tap water is fine, but you can also use moon water). Rub the cloth or cotton from the base to the candle to just before the wick, to symbolize the negative energy leaving the candle.
Once you are done cleansing your candle, it is time to intention it. You do this with oil. Ideally, you would choose a type of oil that matches your intention. If you don't know which oil to use, olive oil can be used for any intent. Get a little bit of the oil in a piece of cotton or clothes. It's important to use just a little bit of oil so as not to make it more flammable than it needs to be. The direction in which you rub the cotton will depend on whether your intention is to attract something or to dispel or banish something. If you need to attract something, rub the cotton from right after the wick to the base. It will be the opposite if you need to dispel something.
Once you have set your intention on the candle, it's time to carve some information on it. If you don't have a special tool for carving, you can always use the back of a match. Always carve the full name of the person that will benefit from the spell, as well as their date of birth. You can also draw meaningful symbols, runes, and sigils to make your spell more powerful.
Herbs & Crystals
Some people also like to roll their candles on the herbs they will be using in this step of the process, but we prefer not to do so because of fire safety. If you choose to do this, remember you only need to use a small amount of herbs. It is safer to place your herbs on the candle holder. The candle holder is also a great place to place your crystals, if you're using any.
Beginning Spell work
Now, light the candle. To make the candle “wake up,” make some sort of sound right after you light it. You can snap your fingers, clap, or use a tool like a bell.
Your spell will be done once the candle burns out. You can extinguish the candle if you need to and then light it later. The one thing you shouldn't do is reuse the same candle for a different intention. Don't blow on your candle if possible. It's preferable to use a tool to snuff it out.
What are blue candles for?
Blue candles are great for protection from spiritual attacks and entities, and for creating wards. This is because blue is the color of two very powerful deities that are generally called upon for protection: Archangel Michael and Horus. Archangel Michael is the commander of the Army that fights against darkness. He can take care of any negative energies and intruders in your home. Horus, on the other hand, protects against the Evil Eye and can help you be more objective.
Not only do blue candles protect vulnerable people, but also the people who are entrusted to protect others, such as security personnel.
Blue candles are also great for treating mental distresses, alongside suitable therapy and medical treatment. Lighting a blue candle can help you combat insomnia, become more patient, release anger, have more mental fortitude, and recover from grief, sadness, or depression.
You can also light a blue candle when you need a situation to turn out fairly, as blue is the color of justice. Combine with the tarot card Justice to see better results.
Blue candles can also help you enhance your focus and memory. Try lighting a blue candle before studying for an important exam.
