Welcome to our Spell Book here at MoonCrafted Essentials. We are a family business of witches who make handmade ritual bath products and invocation candles while helping mystical people learn and embrace their love of magick and the moon. We are tackling the subject of candle magick today.
Candle magick is a beautiful beacon for the energy that surrounds us. Lit candles help create a mystical and magickal atmosphere during any ritual or meditation. They inherently draw on the transformative power of fire in addition to the custom correspondences we have put in each creation.
Many practitioners use candles to enhance their magick, be they spell candles or invocation candles. A lot of times these terms are used interchangeably, but there are a few important differences to know. Spell candles, usually but not always, are intended for a specific action. They are colored, scented, anointed, and charged all with that specific action in mind. These actions correspond to specific spells…like love, healing, and wealth. I tend to think of spell candles as specialist tools.
Invocation Candles are typically a little more general. These are multi-use workhorses that are directed by compatibility with your intent. Think of our Raising Energy Candle. How many different kinds of spells, rituals, and meditations do you need to raise energy for? I would say all of them! You can raise love and healing energy for your specific spell; you can raise personal energy during your morning meditation to help you get through the day. An invocation candle is a tool for you to use, rather than a specific ingredient that will make or break your task.
Our Invocation Candles utilize custom blends of essential oils, botanicals, and crystals to draw the power of the spiritual realm and natural world. We design every candle ourselves and research the correspondences of everything in the candle to help in as many magickal ways as possible. Personally, I am not the kind of witch that likes to be told how to set up my altar or that I need dozens of specific candles in specific sizes on hand to work this or that spell. Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of candles at my house! But they are there because I want them to be, not because a book said so.
So how do you use Invocation Candles? Any way you want really. Like I said before, it’s all about your intentions. Your imagination is the limit!
