About Metaphysical Properties & Magical Uses For
So, you want to create a little magick to attract more harmony into your life. Maybe you don't feel like going all out and getting oils, spell candles, and herbs, etc., but would like to do something fairly simple. Why not try something with candle fragrance? Kind of, like magical aromatherapy!
Your candle magick can be as simple as to light the candle, and as you smell the fragrance, think of what your desire is, and how the candle fragrance is bringing this desire into your space. Your goal being harmony, you pick a gardenia scented candle. Each time, you light the scented candle, you are thinking about your goal. After some repetition, you will, most likely, begin to associate the gardenia scent with your goal, feeling completely in tune, every time you light your scented candle. This could be very handy for times of stress or confusion.
