Below, you will find the metaphysical properties for every candle color used in magic, along with 3 metallics – copper, silver, and gold. Many magical properties overlap, giving use to several different colors, but to avoid repetition and for the sake of putting your best magical foot forward – I have only listed the best and most powerful candle for each task, allowing only a few properties to overlap between candle colors (ie. using either green, gold, and/or copper in a money magic spell). Read the entire list very carefully before choosing the appropriate candle.
WHITE CANDLES – Full Moon, spirituality, purity, peace, protection, truth, banishing negative energy, programming/substituting
*If no other candle colors are available to you, you can substitute white candles for any color candle.
BROWN CANDLES – wishes, manifesting, grounding, solidity, nature magic
DARK RED / MAROON CANDLES – lust, anger, revenge, hate, enemies, black magic
*If no maroon candles are available to you, you can substitute them with WHITE CANDLES or a more powerful combination of RED CANDLES and BLACK CANDLES.
