One of the first things that you learn when you starting learning about Candle Magic is the use of color. Colors are powerful and can illicit very strong feelings. There are many traditional meanings for colors that you will see all across the craft in candles, ribbons, ink, paper, and more. They may be traditional, but the craft is also very personal. If pink or purple don’t speak “love” to you, don’t use them and use what does. In my case, when I think of love, I think of forests, water, warm oceans, and thick blankets. These things put me in mind of greens and browns, so that is what I use.

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re
    using? (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite
    a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate
    any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself
    during the coronavirus scare!
