Dressing Your Candle
Dressing a candle before using it, is a must. This is the cleansing and concentration of the candle(s).
First, you will need oil: These oilís can be purchased at Wiccan outlet store, over the Internet and even at local stores (perfumeís can also be used).
When dressing a candle, stroke the oil in a downward motion, starting from the top of the candle working your way towards the middle, then stop, Then, stroke the oil from the bottom upwards to the middle of the candle and stop. This preparation is used when you would like to draw something towards you.
To repel, reverse this process by starting at the middle and working your way to the top and then to the bottom.
Do not rub back and forth, this will defeat the whole purpose in dressing a candle.
Create your altar, make sure it will not be disturbed and will not create a potential fire hazard.
By timing your candle magic to the moon cycles, it increases the power of your spell or ritual.
The ideal time when you wish to pull something towards you is during the waxing moon.
The ideal time to repel something away from you is during the waning moon.
Carvings, such a Runes, can also be carved into the candle; this will also increase the intensity of the spell or ritual.
