candle magick

    Candle magick is magick using candles.

    One of the earliest forms of candle magick was Full Moon celebrations in honor of Aset (Isis) in which ancient Egyptians would place lit candles on miniature boats and float them on the Nile. Often colored paper would be rigged around the candle so that the Nile River surface was aglow with the silvery light of the Full Moon combined with the many different colors from the candles, creating a fantastic light show in honor of the Goddess Aset (Isis).

    You can make your own candles (see candle making) or purchase your candles with the scents and/or colros needed for your candle magick.

    Candles used for magick should be annointed (this is called dressing the candle) with herbs appropriate to the magick, spell, or ritual. Combine finely grounds herbs appropriate for the spell with some kind of vegetable oil (the vegetable oil is just a carrier for the herbs and can whatever you have handy). See the article on essential oils for detailed information on how to mix and use essential oils (especially the importance of diluting them so that they don’t irritate or burn your skin).

    Rub the mixture of oil and herbs on the outside of the candle starting from the center and rubbing to the top of the candle. Recite an appropriate chant or poem to consecrate the candle as a magickal tool. Then rub the mixture of oil and herbs from the center of the candle to the base. Recite a chant or poem to dedicate the candle to the Goddess (or other divine) that will be called on for the magick, spell, or ritual.
