As the warm weather approaches (on the east coast at least), it's time to spice things up with new intentions, renewed desires, and of course a little magic. Here are some candles to help!
Who doesn't love a good Solar Blast candle? Great for invoking the energy of the sun, with all its potential for positive growth, the Solar Blast can be used all-year round to manifest joy, energy, and happiness. The yellow color is also ideal for chakra work, particularly your Solar Plexus (you can learn more about that in this story), which deals with self-confidence, self-esteem, emotions, and energy levels, as well as welcoming in the upcoming summer months.
The Solar Blast candle pairs well with our Sun oil and incense, Sun Bath, Talisman of the Sun, or you can try a small Solar Blast Kit (candles burn for around 6-7 hours, instead of 7-10 days).
Money Draw Candle
Unless you have a full-time job (that you love!), the late spring and summer months can spell money stress for gig workers, teachers, and contractors. Since work tends to taper off for small businesses during this time, try a Money Draw candle spell to reign in the paper. The green coloring of the candle correlates to the Heart chakra, so add extra the intention of finding work that you really love, work that speaks to the soul. The gold glitter throughout the candle helps manifest a kingly/queenly quality that adds the extra "umph" to your daily work and money search.
The candle pairs well with our Money Draw incense and oil and our Money Draw Ouanga. If you prefer to work with herbs, try this list of 10 herbs for prosperity, money, and employment here.
Ah spring –– a time for rebirth, renewal, fertility, and love. If you're looking to do love magic or fertility spells, the lingering energy of Beltane is excellent for boosting your magic. A Love Ouanga candle helps draw forth love and can be used to attract a mate that's on your level. It can also help deepen and enhance an existing romantic relationship. This candle pairs well with all our love oils, ouangas, incenses: Love Ouanga, Silk Love (which helps attract a refined and classy love), and our Love & Success Formula.

The Emperor Candle is great for spells involving recognition for hard work, building confidence, and helping new opportunities present themselves to you. It's also good for calling on divine guidance and intervention in order to lead you in the right direction. So if you're struggling with important decisions, accessing your Spirit Guides, or manifesting your power, an Emperor may be a good choice. Jupiterian in nature, the color purple is also ideal for Crown chakra work, which is all about accessing your divine intuition, wisdom, and connecting to the spirit realm.
Pairs well with our High Conquering oil and incense, High Conquering Bath Formula, Jupiter oil and incense, Purple Wisdom Formula, and Motivation incense.
The Empress Candle is a Goddess-based candle that helps magnify self-love, confidence, and attract romantic attention. In order to attract love, you must embody love and reflect it back to the world –– and the Empress candle help you manifest the baddie that you really are. When connected to the Empress card in the Tarot, it's a candle for sensuality, fertility, and abundance. The Empress candle pairs well with our Bad Ass Oil and incense, Bad Ass Bath Formula, Goddess of Love formula, a Pentacle of the Goddess talisman, or our Empowerment Kit (which comes with a copy of Women Who Run With the Wolves).
