White Candle Spell
What You Need:
- A white candle, either a plain one (offertory, pillar or taper) or a figural one in the gender of the person you want to bless.
- Blessing oil or holy oil
- Optional: A name-paper, a photo or a personal item of whom you want to bless
Carve the person's full name on the candle then dress it with blessing oil or holy oil.
For more power, you may place the name-paper of the person, the photo, or personal item of theirs (such as a bit of hair or a piece of clothing) either under the candle or next to it. One easy way to do this is to place the paper or personal item under an overturned saucer and put the candle on top of the saucer. Burn a portion of the candle every day for seven days, pinching it out between burnings. As you light it each day, say:
"Name" may you be blessed,
May all good things come to you,
May nothing whatsoever harm you,
May your heart be light,
May your travels be safe,
May your health be good,
May your mind be sound,
May your friendships sustain you,
May you be blessed in every way."
If you have a special request for this person (such as that they find a lover, get a good job, come home safely, etc) just add it to the list.
Some people use a large pillar-type candle and keep it going for longer then seven days. They make a habit of burning such a candle every day, or once a week, for as long as their beloved needs help.
If the candle is large and it is to be burned in this way, it should be redressed with blessing oil or holy oil once a week.
