Candles and Candle Holders for the Spring Witch

Spring is the season of rebirth; the time for flowers to bloom, the time of the Maiden, the time of Ostara, the time to start anew. Now is the hour for witches to fill their homes with all the candles and candle holders that are associated with the springtime. It can be confusing to know which candles would embody the season of rebirth, and that is what this list is dedicated to do: to help a witch discover a few candles that will provide the appropriate scents, colors, and design she will need to fill her spring home. Remember that candles are more than just an aesthetic to have; the candle itself has simple powers such as cleansing the home of negative energy, becoming the gateway that channels the communication between you and your god(s), and has the power to channel spells and rituals.

Just like an altar to the gods, a garden altar will include the gods as well as imagery of growth, fertility, and nourishment. This altar would be the intermediary between her and nature, a bridge to connect a witch to the Earth. Most garden altars are rather simple and could just include a mossy rock, or if it is indoors one can collect different elements of nature and group them together (bundle of rocks, fallen leaves, clump of earth, etc.). In addition to a witch’s garden, there is also the concept of involving the elements of the Earth: Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire. A witch can entirely focus on one element and have the herbs and spices related to that element or have a balance of all four or just the ones that she wants to focus on.
