"Before casting spells or preforming any kind of magic, the colour of the candle should be chosen carefully according to your purpose, for each color possesses a different energy vibration and attracts certain influences." -Gerena Dunwich Wicca Candle Magic. The follows list is taken from the quoted book. It is a very excellent read, and I'm not posting all of it because I'd rather know you went and got the book.
  • Black: Used in meditation rituals, uncrossing rituals, and pells to banish evil and negativity.
  • Blue: Used in spells that involves honour, peace, tranquility, truth, wisdom, or for protection during sleep.
  • Green: Used in spells involving success, good luck, prosperity, and to conteract greed and jealousy.
  • Orange: Used in spells to stimulate enerty
  • Pink: Used in love spells as well as spells dealing with friendship or femininity.
  • Purple: Used in spells for healing or those involving power, success, and house-hold protection.
  • Red: Used in spells involving sexual passion, health, love, physical strength, will power and courage.
  • White: Used in consecration rituals, meditaion, divination, exorcism and spells that involve healing, peace or lunar energy.
(Props to Mrs. Dunwich: She also has the correspondences to Sabbats, Zodiacs, Days, and colours of specific Gods and Goddess. It's a truly wonderful book. Read it!)

Removing Wax:

  • Boiling water technique: Pour boiling water onto whatever the wax is on (not carpet) to softens the wax so it comes off easily.
  • Freezer technique: Put whatever has the wax on it into the freezer for about thirty minutes. The wax will harden, and with a little prodding, will come off easily.
  • Warning! Both extremes (hot or cold) can break glass very easily. I've had it happen to me before.
  • Removing wax from a glass table top: Put the glass into a bathtub and fill it with hot water. Add salt if desired (doesn't mater, but you can purify something this way. Good for Air/water combos.). The hot water will loosen the wax after about twenty minutes of sitting and makes it so much easier to clean off...
