Lavender candles belong to that twilight state that lies between sleeping and waking, when intuition is the strongest, and dreams are clearest in our mind. If you need to recapture that feeling during your waking hours, this is the color to use.
This tends to be a very relaxing color, good at reducing stress and facilitating self-compassion.
If you feel threatened, spiritually or otherwise, perhaps what is needed is not flight or a counterattack, but simply a strengthening of your spiritual center, so that you can work from a position of composure and balance. Lavender candles are excellent for achieving this state.
Lavender candles are often found on springtime altars, especially at Ostara.
The Lavender Mini Chime Ritual Spell Candles measure approximately 4" tall and 1/2" in diameter, and come in sets of four.
How should I charge my candles? When you are ready to use your candle, before you light it, take a moment to simply hold it in your hands and focus on your objective. In addition to the general intention, think about your situation in particular, and the change that you would like to create. Some people choose to anoint their candles with oil at this time, or carve symbols into the wax. That's entirely up to you.
Why should I trim my candle wick? The length of a candle's wick determines how much fuel (the melted wax) is feeding the flame. If the wick is left too long, the candle burns more quickly than it should. It also produces more soot as it burns, which can leave a residue on the walls and ceiling. If the wick is too short, the candle will not stay lit. The ideal length is between 1/8-1/4".
