Okay, so maybe wanting to be a witch is exaggerating but I just loved the idea of wiggling my nose to 'fix' something or finding a solution to a problem in a old ancient book of shadows. The idea was just bewitching to me.

No!! Witches are a big hit with the masses with shows like Secret Circle, Once Upon a Time & Switch appearing on our screens all featuring witches as main characters. The popularity of witches & witchcraft has spilt over into 'real life' with more & more books on spells, incense & anointing oils being sold. These products have been flying of the shelves & you only have to look at the witchcraft section on Amazon to see how 'mainstream' witchcraft has become. But the real increase in popularity for witchcraft has been the surge in sales for candles for Candle Magic.
Candle magic has been around forever & in its simplest form it can be seen as making a wish & blowing out a candle on a birthday cake.
Now candle magic or in fact any magic that I’m interested in is not in raising the dead, putting a hex on someone or making someone’s weave fall out. We are talking about pure white magic here – no horn of goat or paw of cat here! So anyone looking for a 'how to' on how to raise the dead should keep it moving.
The art of performing candle magic is in fact very simple & that's one of the reasons it has grown in such popularity. Essentially candle magic is done by paying attention to the phases of the moon, selecting a candle in the correct colour, anointing it with your chosen oil & saying a spell. That's it!!
The perfect time to perform candle magic is done by paying attention to the moon phases by using a lunar calender. The basic moon phases are; the new moon is for new beginnings, the full moon is when the moon is at its strongest, so spells that need a little bit of extra oomph should be done at this time. A waning moon is the time to be do spells to make something ‘go away’ & if you want to draw something to you then choose a waxing moon.
You can of course get candles anywhere but the best kind to get are natural beeswax candles. I prefer these mini candles as they burn in about 45 minutes. You can order something similar from eBay which contains all the different coloured candles in one handy box for about a tenner.
