These 6″ ritual candles are made of paraffin wax. They are ¾ inches wide by 6 inches tall. These are ideal for both ritual work and offerings, alike. Generally speaking, what color you need depends on what kind of spell you’re doing or which Deity/Spirit you are making an offering to.
Sometimes, the color choices are different for different magickal systems. For example in Hoodoo and Wicca, the color for money is green, while devotees of La Santa Muerte would use gold. In Ceremonial Magick, you could use yellow or gold for the Sun (Sol), blue for Jupiter or green for Venus.
The best bet is to just have several of each on hand at all times, for whatever need arises.
You can burn these, 1 per day for longer rituals. Or, you can section them off with a stick pin or a knife into sections of 3, 7, or 9 and burn 1 section per day.
Lots of color choices available!
Burn time for these 6″ candles is estimated to be about 5 to 7 hours. They will burn fairly straight down, as long as no air drafts from open doors, windows or HVAC vents are affecting the way the flame points.
Please remember to exercise fire safety at all times. Keep all children, animals and flammable items away from lit candles. If you ever have to go, don’t leave them burning unattended. Use a candle snuffer (don’t blow them out!) and say simply “I pause this work” as you extinguish the flame. When you return, relight it, saying “I continue this work”.
These candles can of course be used for mood lighting as well and they make a great addition to any emergency kit for those times when the lights go out, due to storms and power outages.
