Herbal Spell Candles– Use Caution When Burning

Leave a comment

About burning spell candles…

This is a note of caution about the herbal spell candles I sell at my online shop.  To view/purchase these candles, click onthe link below:

These candles are not meant for decorative purposes.  They are real spell candles, rolled in dried herbs; and eventually these herbs will ignite– which is what you want them to do to release the energy of the spell. 

After several hours of burning as a regular candle, it will suddenly take off, and when it does– it will burn up fast in an impressive ball of flame.  I usually start burning a large pillar spell candle a few hours each evening, extinguishing the flame at bedtime, and relighting it over the course of the next several days.

To burn spell candles–

1.  Burn these candles in a fire safe container.  Personally, I use my large cast iron cauldron.

2.  Make sure there is nothing flammable within reach of these candles.

3.  Never leave a spell candle unattended– not for a minute.  Make this a cardinal rule in your house.

4.  If possible, once the herbs have ignited, allow the candle to burn itself out completely.  It will release the energy for your spell, as well as a saging smoke from the herbs.

After two or three days of burning as a normal candle, this spell candle suddenly took off…

Within minutes, the herbs ignited, creating an impressive ball of flame.  You can feel the magick igniting the air and energy around you as well…

Within minutes, the candle is consumed and begins to smolder and release the wonderful saging smoke of the herbs.  The herbs may burn and crackle for quite a while, and as the flames begin to die down, you will see the magickal smoke curling among the remains…
