Following Henri Gamache's instructions, it became popular among conjure-workers of the 1940s to burn small free-standing candles or "lights" of various colours to draw luck, love, and money; for protection from evil; and to wreak vengeance or exert control over others. Because many, if not most, of the spiritual suppliers then catering to the African-American market were Jews, they usually offered 7-branched menorah candle-holders to their customers, which gave hoodoo candle burning ceremonies of the period a slightly Kabbalistic cast. The colour symbolism ascribed to altar candle colours is influenced by European magical traditions, admixed with remnants of African religious symbolism:


•white -- spiritual blessings, purity, healing, rest
•blue -- peace, harmony, joy, kindly intentions, healing
•green -- money spells, gambling luck, business, a good job, good crops
•yellow -- devotion, prayer, money (gold), cheerfulness, attraction
•red -- love spells, affection, passion, bodily vigour
•pink -- attraction, romance, clean living
•purple -- mastery, power, ambition, control, command
•orange -- change of plans, opening the way, prophetic dreams
•brown -- court case spells, neutrality
•black -- repulsion, dark thoughts, sorrow, freedom from evil
•red and black (Double Action) -- remove a love-jinxing spell
•white and black (Double Action) -- to return evil to the sender
•green and black (Double Action) -- remove money-jinxing
Typical sizes for colour-coded free-standing candles are 4" Altar candles, 6" Offertory candles, and 9" Jumbo candles. (

I have black, orange, purple and occasionally red candles, but the blacks are the most numerous. Though its intetntional only because I am a goth and I like black candles, thinking about it, I always "use them" for removing sorrows or pains from my friends and relatives and ward off evil. (ooo and to evoke my dark inspiration :P)
