Candles remain an important part of our spiritual practice and witchcraft.
Their use allows us to perform sorcery indoors instead of a ritual bonfire that would accompany many outdoor magical workings. When ancient tablets and medieval grimoires speak of “wax,” they are referring to beeswax. There is something about it that stirs our ancient souls. When burned, beeswax candles burn clean and bright and have a light, pleasant scent of honey. Slavic peoples believed that the honey aroma has a strong healing effect – strengthening the soul and immunising the body, protecting people. Beeswax candles are used in traditional folk witchcraft making them perfect for candle magick as they carry a connection to Nature and its Elements. They may be rolled in ritual oil and/or milled herbs, or both. Magickally speaking, all stinging insects are considered creatures of Mars. They are warrior spirits. They travel in armies and are willing to die to protect the nest. Bees have a sacred association with the Mother Goddess. Bees are matriarchal, and the products they make are sweet and nourishing. It is not for nothing that honey has been called the “food of the gods.” Images of a bee goddess have been found in ancient art in the Near East and Aegean regions. The title “Melissa” means Queen Bee, and was at various times applied to Cybele, Aphrodite, Demeter, and Artemis. Her priestesses were known as “melissae” or “meliae” (honey-nymphs).
