White Candle Magic Spells

Melting White Candle

A white candle is ideal when you need to cast a magic spell for protection, a love spell or cleansing rituals. You can use a white candle to imbue your magic spell with the power of purity and love.

Different Types of Spells for White Candles

White candles are used for a variety of spells. White represents light, purity, peace and spiritual enlightenment. White candles are used in:

  • Protection spells
  • Cleansing rituals
  • Healing spells
  • Truth seeking
  • Connecting with one's higher self
  • Meditation
  • Astral projection
  • Summoning spirit guides
  • Good luck

Because white light is made up of all colors, a white candle can be substituted for another color if needed.

What Type to Use

One important rule in candle magic is to always use a new, unburned candle when performing a spell. One candle should be used for one purpose. The color of high-quality candles runs through the entire candle, not just the surface. You can use any size or type of candle you wish.

Anointing the Candle

Prior to performing any spell, the candle should be anointed. This is typically done with a small amount of natural oil such as grapeseed, virgin olive, cinnamon, almond, or jojoba oil. Rubbing the oil onto the candle with your fingertips infuses the candle with your energy and intention. Once your candles have been anointed, you can perform one of the following spells. Just remember to use a new candle for each spell.

Blessing Spell With a White Candle

You can send out good fortune, good luck or good health to a loved one. Choose a white candle to perform a blessing spell for that person.

  • Anointing oil (virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil)

  • Ink pen
  • Athame or paring knife (to carve candle)
  • Matches or lighter

Tips for Spell Casting

When using white candles to perform rituals or cast spells, always make sure your reasons are justified. Do not cast spells with the intent of revenge or harming others, as this can come back threefold on you. Always extinguish the candle's flame by snuffing it out. Never blow the flame out, as this will disperse the energy contained within the candle.
