Simple candlework for protection

Ideally for this you should really make your own candle melt, so I’ll explain first a couple of ways how to do that and then, if you cannot do that, you can simply use a black candle (solid colour not dipped).

To make your own:

Ecosoy wax flakes (100g should be plenty for 2/3 melts) and 5g of black candle dye, or alternatively break off a black candle and melt it again. You can then pour it in a specific wax melt container or use rubber molds (THIS IS AN EXAMPLE ) Melt safely in a heatproof container (a Pyrex jug  is fine if melting the wax over water or you can buy a more professional candle wax melting pot).

Whichever way you use once melted then add:

– dried rosemary ( a couple of pinches)

– 4 drops of mandrake oil

– a pinch of ground nutmeg

– 4 drops of rose essential oil

Let it set properly (usually overnight) then use by melting slowly in an oil burner. Once used you can easily take off the hardened wax by putting the burner in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

This is something I LOVE to do (please be careful though!) because although I love buying ready-made candles, it simply adds to the ritual of making “special candles” like protection ones or spell candles.

Why wax melts and not candles you may ask?? Well because they are EASIER to make and the end result is the same ;), enjoy!


Tarot Spells

I created a simple handout guide for the London Tarot Study Group latest Tarot spells session that took place last Sunday. This is just an excerpt and contains a couple of exercises for you to practice creating your own Tarot Spells. The full version of the course can be bought on my website in the COURSES section. Feel free to add comments and/or feedback :). Most of all, have witchy fun 😉


Samhain (Halloween) Spells and Candle Magic

It’s that time of the year again, the 18th of October is the next Full Moon and we also have 2 eclipses occurring this month, one lunar and one solar. To be honest the energies have been all over the place for me this year but let’s concentrate on good things :).

Here I give you 2 examples of a Full Moon simple candle ritual for attracting prosperity and a simple Tarot spell for getting rid of negativity (to be done after Full Moon in the waning phase).

Full Moon Candle ritual for prosperity:

– Green candle

– sea salt (or kosher salt)

– Attraction Oil (or if unavailable simple olive oil will do)

– chopped dried basil leaves

Anoint the candle with the oil by rubbing it TOWARD yourself in one direction only. State your intention and what you want to attain (it is better to speak out this loudly but you can think it too if you prefer). Do this for a couple of minutes. Mix the basil with some of the salt and rub on the candle (again in one direction toward yourself), light the candle and, if possible, let it burn until extinguished.

Tarot spell for clearing negativity:

– Black candle

– Black obsidian (or black tourmaline)

– Rosemary incense (or Sandalwood if not available)

– A Tarot deck

Light the incense. Cleanse the candle by imagining it covered in white light and all the negativity cleared from it, do this until you feel it is thoroughly cleansed. Light the candle. Lay the crystals next to it. Now take out from your Tarot deck the following 3 cards: Death, 8 of Cups, 6 of Swords. Lay the cards one after the other beside (but not too close for safety!) the candle and incense. State loudly what you want to clear, get rid of or what you want to move away from. Leave this setting untouched until the candle is fully extinguished.

I will post some more Halloween spells towards the end of the month :), you can also take the short Tarot Spells course I offer directly from my website.
