Hey Witches, I'm back! This week, we're focussing on all things 'candle magic'.
Candle magic dates back to Paleolithic times. Fire is a very powerful. Civilisations would use it to cook food, to keep warm and to warn animals off, since they didn't have the luxury of electricity.
Candles were originally made from beeswax and animal fats. They were first made by soaking pithy reeds in animal fats/beeswax. It wasn't until the Romans changed and improved candle making by using wicks of woven fibres.
Candles are the physical connection to the element of fire. The importance of the candle died out with the creation of electricity and the light bulb. However, the candle is still an important tool in sacred religious ceremonies, including witchcraft.
