Most white magic rituals use candles because they are tools that project a special power. They represent illumination, life and the force of the four elements of nature that open the ways to achieve the goals we desire.
In certain traditions, the candles must be purified and consecrated before being used in a ritual for magical purposes. By anointing the candles, we are charging them with our intentions and willpower. This is also done to remove all residual energy from anyone who has handled the candles before purchasing them.

How to use Candles for Spells
If you prepare the candles yourself for the white magic rituals, they will be more effective and you will obtain better results.
Before casting a spell, we must prepare our tools. Consecrating and purifying the candles and the rest of the elements that we are going to use can be a very important part of a ritual. With this we transmit the energy necessary to achieve the objectives we want and we encourage them to emanate their power.
The rituals will be enhanced and will be more effective if you consecrate your candles with oils.
Cleanse and Consecrate a Candle
What’s the best oil to use to anoint the candles before a ritual? For a white magic spell for love, you can use rose oil. If you want to perform any other type of ritual, you can use olive oil.
The procedure is very simple, but important for the candle to give us its maximum power. Steps to follow:
1. Rub the oil all over the candle without touching the wick. You can start from the bottom and work your way up or start from the top and go down. Note: There are as many opinions on this matter as practitioners on earth. A common practice is to rub the fingers up and down to attract something, or rub them from the bottom up to banish or repel something.
2. As you rub in the oil, visualize your desire and how it will manifest. Take a minute or two to focus on this.
3. State an intention. Ask for the ritual to be successful. The intention is fundamental. You must set an intention for your spell. If you are requesting something, the candle alone will not do the job. It all depends on what you petition and how you do it.
4. When you prepare your candles for the rituals yourself, they will have more power and you will get better results. Your own energy gives power to the ritual.
How to Cleanse, Consecrate and Charge Ritual Tools
Typically, as you collect tools to use in your rituals, you will need to clear the previous energies away.
Spiritually cleansing an object is exactly what the word implies: you are cleaning it. The difference is that you are not cleaning it on a physical level (although you can certainly do it first). What you are trying to do is purify the object on a spiritual level, on an energetic level.
Cleansing dissociates elements with their past vibrations. When they were in a factory or a store, people have touched it, transported it, put it on a shelf where they have collected dust, along with many other energies. What we seek is to tune the object with our own energies or ones that lead to our goals.
Ways to Spiritually Cleanse an Amulet
Choose the method that is more convenient to you:
- You can burn a cleansing incense (such as Sandalwood, Copal, Frankincense, Palo Santo, Myrrh, Sage) and pass the object through the smoke.
- Place the object in a container with salt or soil or bury the object directly in the ground for some time.
- You can keep it under running water from a natural source or leave it to soak in salt water (preferably Moon water and sea salt)
- You can pass the object quickly through the flame of a candle.
How to Consecrate a Magical Tool
Consecration: Consecration brings the energy and even the spirit of the person who performs the consecration to the tool or object. You can consecrate anything: your jewelry, your tools, your amulets or talismans, even your house. Consecrating an object means elevating its purpose to a spiritual one through an act of blessing.
You must remember “that once consecrated, the object is sacred and you must treat and respect it as such“.
Some ways to consecrate an object:
- State an affirmation with the spiritual use of the object and the intended purpose.
- Anoint the object with oils that are also cleansed, charged, and consecrated.
- You can consecrate with Air, Earth, Fire and Water in a blessing ritual: (pass it through the flames, through the smoke of the incense, sprinkle with salt or spray water on it).
How to Charge a Ritual Tool
By charging something you are impregnating it with your energy so that it is aligned with a specific intention. For this, you must raise your own energy level and then direct it towards the object. There are several ways to charge an object, it depends on your preferences and the object in question. For example, when working on Candle Magic, you can charge the candle to align it with the purpose of the spell.
This energy charge requires generating some energy and directing it towards the object. Again, the method you choose may largely depend on your preferences or the item you are charging. Let’s see some examples:
- Rub the candles with oil repeatedly.
- Dance, sing, meditate, to boost your energy and then pour that energy into the object with a visualization technique.
- Place the object in the sun for an hour to charge it with the sun’s energy.
- Put the object under the full moon through the night to charge it with lunar power.
- Place the object on an energy crystal for a day or a few days to absorb its energy.
- Feel free to create a method entirely of your own that fulfills your goal in the best way for you and your belief system.
Like consecration, charging is not always necessary. For example, I wouldn’t charge all of my jewelry just because I’m wearing it; you can just cleanse them. If I primarily use a piece for a certain spell or ritual, I would cleanse it and consecrate it. If I wanted to use it as an amulet or talisman, I would charge it.
