This will explain how to charge and anoint plain candles that are not already anointed or charged. The importance of charging and anointing your candles before you use them for spells and rituals cannot be overlooked.
If you wish for your rituals and spells to work to full effect, charging and anointing a candle with a particular oil, or inscribing symbols and words on them, will make the candle and its purpose all that more potent.
For example, if you are performing a love spell or attraction spell to try and find love or to strengthen love you already have, you would use a pink colored candle (pink represents love) and then inscribed love based symbols. After inscribing, you would then anoint that candle with a love based or attraction based oil.
The same could be said to prosperity or wealth based spells and rituals. A green candle would be used (to represent prosperity, wealth, and money) and then inscriptions towards prosperity and wealth would be drawn onto the candle. Afterword, an oil would be anointed that focuses on prosperity.
INSCRIBING YOUR RITUAL CANDLE
After cleansing and blessing a spell candle, you should begin to inscribe the candle with symbols or words towards whatever it is your ritual or spell is on.
For example, if you are using a love spell and you wish to obtain the love of someone you know, you can inscribed your initials and their initials onto the candle, or you can even use the full name of the querent and yourself. You can add the names along side with symbols that represent love as well, such as a heart or even ancient symbols of love such as the Reiki love symbol.
You will need something with a fine point to scratch the surface of the candle. It can be a pin, a specialist scribing tool, a cocktail stick or anything else your imagination can dream up. Once you have chosen your tool though, dedicate it properly, then tuck it away in your magical tool chest and reserve it for just this purpose.
As you are inscribing your candle, visualize the outcome. Make it a small ritual in its own right. Once you have inscribed your candle, you may wish to ‘Dress’ it. This is optional, your choice entirely, but it’s easy and again adds to the potency of your spell.
