The form of magic I favor is all about attraction, rather than coercing someone else to do what you want them to do, so the following table of candle colors and their magical uses leans in that direction. Since I'm basically a kitchen witch, the tools I use in my magic are fairly simple and often homemade. One of my all time favorite forms of magic involves the use of candles. When I'm not too lazy, I make my own. Otherwise, I buy inexpensive candles at the grocery store, health food store, or my favorite metaphysical shop. There's no need to spend a lot of money - any type of candle works because it's really all about the intentions of the person doing the magic.
Once you've decided on your magical goals, and which color candle will best help you reach them, you simply write what you wish to achieve on a piece of paper and place it underneath the candle. For safety's sake, I suggest you burn candles on a fireproof surface and put your paper under that. For instance, I burn my candles on a silver plate and I slip the piece of paper with my goals written on it under the plate.
