Simply lighting a candle and watching the flickering light can be a soothing and calming activity. People who are involved in witchcraft or beliefs that practice spell-casting may find that a spell done using a candle can help the process.
Healing spells are done with candles, often using different elements that will contribute to their success:
Candle Color: Certain groups believe each color is associated with different properties. Celtic Moon has an extensive listing of candle colors and their use.
Scent: Richly scented candles may have spiritual powers associated with them. Spiritual Platform offers a listing of different scents that could be inhaled to bring about healing, like eucalyptus. Scents that are for general well-being or emotional healing may also be useful.
Spell: The spell you cast depends upon your personal beliefs regarding spell casting. You may be able to use a spell written by someone else, or it may be necessary for you to write your own. Your level of expertise will also factor into how well the spell works.
Spells for healing that use candles are usually for your own health or someone you love. Similar to doing other candle spells, like for money, if you are doing a spell for someone else, you should get their permission for performing the ritual.
Healing spells are not just for physical ailments. Spells can help create harmony within a family or ease the pain of depression or grief. Animal healing spells are also commonly used.
Aromatherapy Candle Healing
As previously mentioned, scented candles can offer holistic and therapeutic healing through inhaling their oils. If you are uncomfortable with using a candle healing spell, you can use candles that have aromatherapy properties to help heal your ailments.
To find the proper scent, speak with someone who specializes in aromatherapy or who practices holistic/alternative medicine. They should be able to guide you in the right direction. Holistic Online offers a table that lists chemical components, their properties and oils with those chemicals. Use this list to help you find the right scent for your aromatherapy candle.
Give an aromatherapy bath and candle gift basket to someone you love who is suffering from health problems. Include several votive and pillar candles that are infused with a scent you think will alleviate symptoms for the ailing friend. If they are open to the idea, you might write them an original candle healing spell to be used with other items you include in the gift basket.
