This article explains in details how to cleanse a candle in order remove all energies from it. Once the cleansing has been completed you will consecrate a Candle.
The consecrating process dedicates the candle to your purpose.
To get your candle ready for use in a spell or ritual you will spray it with your own Holy Spell Water.
How to Cleanse a Candle
We Cleanse Candles to remove any and all energies that were infused into the candle during the manufacturing process. You will have to cleanse all candles unless you have made the candle yourself with a specific purpose or spell in mind.
Saturate a tissue or cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and cleanse it’s surface, moving from bottom to top. This is how the energy from the candle is expelled.
How to Consecrate the Candle
We consecrate a candle to dedicate it to our purpose. There are several methods on how to consecrate a candle. You can chose either one of the methods or all of them.
1. Engrave the Candle
Take a toothpick (or athame if you have one) and crave the appropriate symbol into it. If your goal is romance engrave a heart into the side of the candle. If your goal is money, a dollar sign would work. You may also chose runes, element signs, astrological signs or a personal sign that represents you or your lover.
While you engrave the candle you have to think intensely about your wishes and goals and speak them out. To repeat verbal formulas in the form of incantations or affirmations is highly recommended.
2. Oil the Candle
If you can’t find the oil mentioned below use either Rose Oil or Lavender Oil. Either one can be used for all love spells listed on my site.
You Consecrate the Candle by dipping your fingers into the oil and anoint the entire surface of the candle with it. For all spells (except the Break-up Spell) oil the candle from top to bottom. For the Break-Up Spell you oil the candle from bottom to top. We always oil candles from top to bottom to attract good or to get something good and oil the candle from bottom to top to expel something.
