What's your favourite colour? Did you know that different colours of candles have different meanings?

The origin of the meanings behind different colours of candles goes back centuries to traditional folk healing, where ancient spells, chants and herbal remedies would be passed down through communities.

Today, coloured candles are still used in a wide range of spiritual and religious rituals. 

So, whether you want to use different coloured candles for meditation or ritual, or if you just want to bring a feeling of spirituality into your home, here's our guide to the different meanings for different colours of candles.



Purple is the colour of the third eye chakra, so it represents spirituality, healing, ancient wisdom and power. It can also enhance your connection to the spiritual world. Use it to enhance your meditation, and to improve your chances of power and success.
