Candle magick is a kind of alchemy, where all elements are represented — fire of the flame, air to feed it, melted wax for water, and solid wax for earth,
Candle magick can be tailored to your preferences. Everyone practices differently, and that is as it should be, so take as much technique inspiration from as many sources as you want to, but do it your own way.
You could start by simply placing your candle in a cleansed, sacred space, and returning to it at roughly the same time each night to meditate on your desire until the candle is complete, or for a certain number of nights. Keep an eye on the flame and observe how it behaves.
Candle Magick Colours:
When it comes to colours, you may wish to have a variety on hand for different magical purposes.
* Note that many Pagan Witches believe, it is acceptable to use a white candle in place of any other colour.
There's one important thing to remember:
Remember not to blow your candle out unless you want to blow away your intention!
Snuff it out with a tool or your fingers instead, if it can't be left to burn out.

Deriving from the Irish + Scottish Gaelic word Saen, to “sain” is to charm. To protect, to activate, to recharge.
Saining has ties to water, smoke and fire. Saining dates back to Scotland and Ireland and has heavy tradition in their New Years Day customs.
On Hogmanay (NYD) in the Highlands of Scotland, folks would sain their homes and cattle with “holy” water early in the morning to begin the year in prosperity. This would include walking through their fields and sprinkling water atop each member of cattle or livestock on the property. Upon completion, they would move on to their homes with the water blessing. Once they had sprinkled their beds with this water, they would close up their homes tightly and begin to burn juniper inside. Once the smoke filled up the home enough that the residents would be left coughing, the doors and windows were reopened and the home was now considered cleared.
Another act of saining is almost always done through the use of a prayer or poetry and/or the sign of the cross. In our home we use the fire + smoke element. The traditional offering for a fire sain is Juniper or Yew and can be thrown on an existing fire or smolder in a bowl. As Druids, there is a strong knowing that all things possess a live energy. Life can be found in absolutely everything and therefore can be positively or negatively charged. Using the act of saining with prayer, we have the ability to recharge the space, the item, the person; reenergizing and resetting the energy to shift into more positivity.
Saining can be done as a part of the equinoxes, (think spring cleaning), a monthly or yearly tradition or simply when you’re feeling the need to shift the energy around you. Feel free to clip some juniper to dry and start to practice on your own! Find the poetry, charm or prayer that suits you and create your own habits and rituals. And not to fear, you don't have to smoke out your entire home! You can chose to reenergize objects, plants, rooms, people, anything you feel could use some energy!
What is important is the intention here. We all have different ways, different words, different reasons, but I feel confident in saying that we all want to feel good energy and this has been such a beautiful way to feel the power that our words in ritual can produce and activate! We hope you enjoy looking into our rituals and even begin curating your own!

Magic wands have a rich and ancient history in a variety of traditions, dating back to Zoroastrianism, early Hinduism, and the Ancient Greeks and Romans, among other traditions.
Wands are sensitive transmitters of energy that have a variety of uses.
When used properly, a wand can be used for healing oneself, enchanting objects, and casting spells.
A wand is symbolic of a witch’s power, and is seen as an extension of the witch using it. It’s also symbolic of masculine power and the air and fire elements. Because of it’s stronger association with the air element, it’s symbolic of communication, logic and intellect.
How To Use A Magick Wand
Point the wand at your altar, candle, inscription, or whatever magical object you’re using to power your spell.
Visualise a beam of light (your own personal energy) moving through your hand, out the tip of your wand, and into the object.
The point of the wand can direct and focus that energy into your magical object to supercharge your magical intention.
Use your wand to set an intention by “writing” your intention in the air letter-by-letter, and word-by-word with the tip of your wand in the air.
Finish your spell by pointing the wand up to send the intention up into the universe.
Set your intention before you begin your spell.
For example, you can choose to cleanse the negative energy from your body, charge yourself with loving energy, or cover yourself with protective energy.
To begin, point the tip of your wand at your feet and make circles in the air over your body.
Start at the ground and move up your body until the point of your wand is circling the crown of your head. As you do this motion with your wand, visualize coloured light shooting out of the wand and seeping into your body.
Observe any sensations in your body as you perform this spell.
Hold the wand in your right hand and visualize a blue light (or any colour you like) shooting out of your hand, through your wand and out into the middle of your circle. In your mind’s eye, see the light getting bigger until it is your desired size. Step into the centre of that space.
When you are ready to close your circle, visualize the light floating down to the earth and disappearing like melting snowflakes.
Activate your wand by first cleansing it with incense, a smudging stick or hold your own saining ceremony to mark the occasion.
To charge you wand you can leave it outside (weather permitting) during the full moon, although a windowsill in full view of the moonlight will also suffice.
Never point your wand at anyone with intent, a wand is not a toy... Your wand is an extension of the magick you hold inside.
Witch's Black Salts have been used very successfully for centuries and have many different uses.
Below we will indicate the main uses, but black salt can also be used in different ways if yoI have studied witchcraft.
Write a bad habit, a personal worry, or a personal failure on a piece of parchment,
include a pinch of Black Salt, and fold it to keep the Black salt in the center of
this Parchment. Toss the whole thing into a fire to divorce yourself from it.
Keep a small bag of Black Salt on your person and/or at your desk in hostile work
situations to protect yourself from office gossip and machinations designed to cause you trouble.
Use 25g of Black Salt in your bath water to wash away negativity, and ward
against possession by depression, negativity and other unhealthy emotions and diseases of the mind and spirit.
Place Black Salt in a recipient or small bag under your bed or pillow in order to guard against bad dreams, nightmares, and intruders to your dreams while you sleep.
Sprinkle a line of Black Salt across doorway entrances, windows or the perimeter of your property to keep unwelcome spiritual and physical entities from your home, to block envy and jealousy from entering your domain.
Place bags with Black Salt in each room to ward off bad spirits, unwelcome
spiritual visitors, negative energies.
If you are trying to keep a specific person out of your home or space, sprinkle the Black Salt across each threshold while naming the person and the reasons that you do not wish to allow them into your space.
If someone has entered your house that you would like to stop from returning, you can use Black Salt as they are leaving. Simply sprinkle the salt into their footsteps, preventing their return.
Regularly change the Black Salt and dispose of it away from you and your property, possibly in a quiet place where it won't affect anybody as you will be disposing of the negative energies with it
