Candle Magic dates back centuries to ancient times when candle burning was used in age-old symbolic rituals and religious ceremonies. Sacred candle rituals continue in modern times as we seek to explore the realm of magick and personal spiritual awareness within our own intuitive consciousness. It all begins with an intent. A magical corresponding color is then matched to that specific intent. Other items such as resin incenses, loose herbal blends, ritual salts, and crystals can be placed upon the altar (or, in this case infused into the candle itself) to help magnify the power of your intentional spell or ritual working. Burning herbs is a great way to take advantage of the energy in your magic and is a great addition to any manifesting spell. A spell is a thought, a projection, a prayer, an enchantment. In essence, the success of any candle Magick spell depends not only upon the way in which it is cast, but also upon the power of positive thinking and the ability to imagine and believe in the magick being created. Your intention drives the force behind the candle. Focus on your intention as the intent is everything in magick.

Set your intentions before lighting the candle. Light herbs on top of candle. The smolder emitted from the herbs are to be used to cleanse your space. The crystal that remains is yours to keep as a reminder of the intentions you set when you first lit the candle.
Trim your wick to 1/4" before each lighting. Allow the melted wax pool to reach the edges of the jar before extinguishing to prevent wax build up and tunneling. Burn for approximately 3 hours at a time, but no longer than 4 hours Do not burn candle to the very bottom of jar. Stop use when only 1/4" wax remains. If there is no wax to coat the dried herbs, they will catch fire. Burn candle within sight, keep out if reach of children and pets.
Glass will be hot after burning, allow wax to cool completely before handling.
