Some of you may or may not agree with me on the subject of this blog, which will describe a process by which you can take a candle that has been used for a non-magickal purpose and re-dedicate it to use in a magickal way.
I first got the idea for the method last year when shopping at my local thrift store. I came across a large box of candles in all different shapes and sizes which were on sale for the low, low price of $3.00!
Some of these candles were 'virgin', meaning that they had not been previously used at all; whereas some of the other candles has been burned for at least a few minutes as you can see in the picture below.
To re-dedicate this candle first, you would cut off the used tip.
And then carve out a new wick from the new tip that you have created.
And finally, clean the entire candle by wiping it down with a little Ammonia.
Once the candle is dry, you are then free to prepare this candle for magick in your usual way.
