Spell candles are basically used to help you get into the magic spirit; it is a simple inexpensive way to get the ambiance needed to “feel the force” so to speak.
- Votive candles are the small inch to 2 inch candles they are especially good for alter work or placing inside of vessels or bowls.
- Tapper candles come in slow burn and real wax, the real wax is often preferred because a wax reading that can be done with the wax that falls. You can get special wax pans at any Wicca wholesaler but in a pinch of course you can use pie pans. Note: paper plates do not work
- Jar candles are great, you can make your own very easily and they are easier to reuse. Smells are not essential but I have found some fragrances quite soothing so why not intermingle aromatherapy with devotations and spells?
