Candles are black as an attribute of white magic
A burning candle is an invariable attribute of any magical rite.

Also, these attributes can play the role of a magical beacon for spirits, and they indicate the directions of the world when performing a ceremony.
What does black color mean?
Black candles are often associated with negative energy and dark magic. However, this is not entirely true. Of course, they can be used in the imposition of curses, where in fact they perform the role of an independent magical artifact charged to cause harm and even death.But black wax candles also symbolize regeneration and purification. In various kinds of rituals, black color marks the end of a life cycle, carrying the seeds of renewal and rebirth. So such candles are successfully used not only during dark rites, but also in light magic.
Where black candles are used
Black candles in white magic are most often used in rituals of purification. It is believed that their flames attract all negative energy, both from people and from objects. For example, during the rite of purification of the house, the medium passes around all the rooms, holding a lit black candle in their hands.
They are also used for altars, in a pair to white. Black color is associated with the world of spirits, so black candles are used during seances and appeals to the dead. They can also serve as the main magical artifact in the rites of justice and serve as an analogue of the crystal ball, contributing to immersion in a meditative state.
How to make your own candles in black
Of course, such items can be bought. Price from 10 rubles per item, more massive or unusual shape products are more expensive.However, some people like to make magical things themselves: in this case, they carry a special imprint of the owner's aura. In addition, such products can include other ingredients - the hair of a loved one or a drop of aromatic oil.
So, in order to make candles black, you need paraffin, wick, black dye, several forms (glasses, jars, syringes, etc.) and some oil. Grind a few paraffin candles (or stubs) and melt them in a water bath. Add black dye - you can use finely grated wax crayons. Some use shoe cream, ink, graphite rods or soot for this purpose, but the result will be worse. Then you need to lubricate the form with oil - so the candles will not stick to the sides and will be smooth and shiny. As a wick, you can use a ready-made candle or a twisted rope of several strands.
When filling the mold, the wick should be kept in the middle and gently pour the melted paraffin. After hardening, the candle is ready and can be removed.
