The Magic of a Black Candle

Burning a black candle can help you clean your auric field and remove negative karma. Because black candles are used to counter bad or negative things, they get frequently associated with Black Magic rituals or with ill-intentioned practitioners.

If you need to remove any toxic or negative vibes, you can also light a white candle to complement each black you burn, such as a mixture of yin and yang, light and dark. ☯️
