Candle powders are a great addition when preparing spell candles. They’re easy to make, and add extra kick to spell work when the powder has been properly charged during it’s making. Good bases for candle powders are unscented talcum powder,cornstarch, fine saw dust or baking powder. The herbs must finely ground before mixing them with the base.
To use, first anoint the candle with the appropriate oil, then either lightly dust the candle by sprinkling it with the appropriate powder, or pour some of the powder out on a flat surface and roll the oiled candle in it.
