There is something magical about lighting candles. White candle represents purity; black candle repels negative or bad energy; red candle represents love; blue is for healing and wisdom; purple is for spiritual and karma protection; and green is known for money. At Lourdes Cathedral in the South of France, there is an evening mass where people hold a white candle, walking toward the cathedral while saying prayers for the holly spirits to grant them wishes.

If you feel bad energy surrounding your space, burn a black and white candle every day for 1-2 hours until your mood is lifted. Burn a white candle with any color for purity: white and red or white and green.

When purchasing candles, make sure that they have lead-free wicks.  Test the wick by drawing it on a piece of paper. If it leaves a gray mark like a pencil does, it contains lead.  Exposure to high amounts of lead has been linked to hormone disruption and numerous health problems. In addition, you should look out for aromatherapy candles made of paraffin, a petroleum by product, which release carcinogenic soot when burned. Perhaps, fragrance-free candles are better! Open your windows because the candle smoke is toxic to the air.

Positive mood can make anything look good
