Practical Usage of Purple Candles?

In magic, the purple candle rituals are a link to the higher dimensions and can bring happiness to all who yearn for something beyond the material plane.

Purple candles help mirror scrutiny and are useful for psychic protection and nightmare prevention.

Purple candles can also be used for all rituals in which the facts are not clear, for matters of secrecy, to heal the spirit and banish what lies in the past but still pursues the present, and to remember beings Dear ones who have passed away.

Esoteric students believe that purple candles have the power to nullify the negative effects of bad karma. Ancient wisdom holds that the color purple is associated with the third eye.

Purple is effectively used against black magic, to drive away evil, and for spiritual and psychic healing.

Purple Candles in White Magic

The purple candles are also combined with the blue candles in rituals to achieve triumphs or personal goals since by joining these candles, we achieve strong energy aimed at something we want.

Stones or minerals are usually used as an amulet for the achievement and maintenance of real success. It must be clear that the purple color is quite adaptable to different rituals; this is due to its great strength.

Different Shapes of Purple Candles Explained

We must also study the shape of the purple candle, and some many shapes and sizes will depend on the desired ritual or request.


For example, cylindrical candles are the most common and the most used in all types of work with a specific objective.

Square or polyhedral candles are used in works of specific paths; each of the corners or peaks of the candle will represent each of the needs to open or attract luck.

Pyramidal shape ones are used in reinforcement work to enhance other spells already made.

How to Prepare a Purple Candle for Magical Work

Suppose we join the purple candles with the red candles. In that case, we can achieve effective results in works of sweeteners of love and also in open paths of love since together they are used in spells related to improving relationships, especially in those that there is a crisis or emotional and sexual cooling.

Purple candles with a dark hue have a strong desire and sexual component, which makes them ideal for this type of work.

To prepare them for this type of work, natural ingredients such as natural ground cinnamon, orange blossom honey, brown sugar should be used, since they are elements related to reconciliation, sexual zeal, and the carnal desire.

It is very important that both the dwellings and any other candle, are acquired in specialized stores and that guarantee the high quality of its composition.

A candle of poor quality can ruin a ritual; therefore this basic element in any white magic work must be of good quality.

Rituals and Spells with Purple Candles

Purple Candle Protection Spell

Purple is the angelic color by nature. That is why through this protection spell, we will summon the angels to guide and protect us.

To make this protection spell light the violet candle in a room that has a window that allows us to see a full moon.

Light the candle at midnight and say the following sentence:

“Guardian angels of my soul and my spirit, do not let anyone near my circle do not pass. Don’t let negative energies try to influence my mind and my spirit in any way.” “My angels I give myself to you and I summon you”.

Looking at the violet candle since this energy is in itself healing.

Then leave the candle burning as much as we can, if possible overnight until the candle is consumed.

Repeat the spell as many times as you want.

You can do it at a different time (also without a full moon) but always try to get the moonlight through the window – this is important.

Ritual with Purple Candles to get a Raise

For this ritual, you will need three candles: a white candle, a green candle, and, of course, a purple candle.

Do this ritual on a Thursday.

With these three candles, you will create a triangle, in the center you will place a paper with your request and on this paper some small object that you use in your job.

When the candles burn down completely, pick up this object, and take it with you when you go to request a raise.

Ritual with Purple Candles to Clean Karma

On a new moon night, light five purple candles around you.

In meditation position: close your eyes and let your thoughts flow. Imagine a river taking away your guilt and regret when you start to wonder.

When your thoughts are more harmonious and relaxed, blow the candles, and go to bed.

Repeat this ritual until there is a full moon.
