Spiritual Meaning of Brown Candles: Strength & Nurturing

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

Brown candles remind us of the earth, trees, nature, and precisely because of that, they’re candles for stability. Let’s learn more about a brown candle meaning and symbolism.


Brown candles hold various spiritual meanings, often related to grounding, stability, and practicality.

They symbolize a connection to the Earth element and help individuals feel rooted in the physical world.

Brown candles can be used for protection rituals, especially concerning the home and family.

They are also associated with mental clarity and concentration, making them suitable for meditation and study.

Additionally, brown candles may be used for rituals related to career success, financial stability, and connecting with ancestral spirits.

How Should Brown Candles be Used?

Brown candles are used in rituals where we want to keep something we already have.

We use them when we do not want to remove something from our lives, and we don’t use them for attracting something – we use them when we want to keep something.

So, if something goes well, for example, if a relationship is strong, if a job makes us happy or ultimately, if we have a situation in which we feel happy, we can exercise a ritual with brown candles to wish that it never ends.

Also, in remembering the earth and mother nature in some way, it is used in fertility rituals, it also makes sense in the desire that the seed remains and flourish within us. So keep that in mind!

If you are in a sensitive moment, do not use brown candles. It is a candle that also evokes feelings from the past, so if you plan to use one, you must have a strong spirit.

Before we continue

I was honored when I was recently asked by Court TV producers to consult on a case.

You can view the clip below. This case is a great example of why I do not cast any spells that have harmful intentions. As a Professional Spellcaster, I work with clients from all over the world and it’s important to me to remain grounded and stay ‘in the light’ so that I can help as many people as possible.

Working with candles takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult a divination expert such as Mystic Amber and allow us to do the work for you.

This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and we’re also always here to answer questions about your reading and provide follow-up at no additional charge.

Meaning of the Brown Color

Brown is the color of the earth, so it means that when we step on the earth, we’re settled on it, and on it, we stand firm.

Hence, turning on the brown color is done to keep the ground we step on. That’s regardless of the field of life to which we refer.

Elements Associated with Brown

More than ever, the natural elements are essential because brown is all about the energy on the earth.

The elements are the following:

The onyx is a very blunt stone, semi-precious, and at the same time, with a rough appearance. It is known as being an antidepressant.

Jupiter invites reflection, it is a planet prone to intelligence, thought, and coherence, and that is why in this case, it is very good to want to keep our feet on the ground when everything is going well and not do crazy things.

Thursday is known as being a serious day. On Thursdays, we become more aware of problems or happiness.


Honeysuckle is a flower that is associated with the purity of the earth – hence its usage in rituals with brown candles.

The rituals should always be done, including meditation, in the afternoons. This time of the day is always quieter and more appropriate to carry out a ritual.

The number chosen in this case is 4.

Brown Candles Meaning

A brown candle is our earth’s color and represents the soil’s element. It is very comforting, nutrient, fertile and stable, and maintains a balanced vibration and a firm connection with the earth.

It helps with organization, common sense, eliminates indecision, promotes concentration (especially when combined with yellow candles), learning, concentration, clear thinking, and decision making.

Brown candles promote intuition, psychic powers, extrasensory perception, and telepathic abilities, to help find lost objects.

Quick facts

  • Day: Saturday
  • Chakras: Feet, sacrum, solar plexus
  • Astrological Sign: Capricorn, Gemini, Libra, Virgo (dark brown), Scorpio (reddish brown)

Brown Candle Rituals

They are widely used in spells for balance, rooting, stability, upbringing, earth magic, animal magic, home magic, friendships, agriculture, and travel.

Also, to attract money, to overcome a financial crisis (especially when combined with green candles), healing, longevity, beginnings, rebirth/renewal.

These are the three most frequent uses of brown candles in white magic:

  1. Pregnancy: brown is the color of the earth, which represents fertility. Therefore, candles of this color are key in any white magic spell to ask the forces of the universe for pregnancy.
  2. Stability: as we have pointed out, brown is a color that symbolizes stability. Thus, brown sails are widely used in moorings related to a successful professional future, a strong and consolidated relationship …
  3. Cleanliness: currently, unfortunately, we live in a world in which envy is widespread. Brown candles help cleanse the soul of everything negative and expel everything that destabilizes the situation. For example in moorings to achieve a job promotion in a hostile work environment with other colleagues.
