Don't be put off by its title or its size, A Little Book of Candle Magick actually has more candle buring spells than most of the other well known books on this subject out there. She included tried and tested rituals already out there and added more variations. Conway explains everything you need to know about the type of candles, detailed info on the colours, astral candles, oils, inscence and herbs you can use, stones, lunar phases, days and magical hours are also given if needed.

There is enough here to create your own spells but her candle magick rituals are very well planned out for you and include optional extras such as stones or herbs. She lists what candles, oils, stones and herbs may be needed with a few spells requiring a burning dish, papaer or nail for carving. The best correct phase of the moon is given as well as full explanation on anointing the candles and proceeding with the ceremony and some very simple spoken words.

What I love about Conways book is there is no alternative Christian spells which kind of waste the pages of other books for most people. The spells are not overly wiccan either, no specific dieties are mentioned so it allows you to do this if you are not following any tradition or to easily adapt it to any magickal or spiritual tradition. The spells are in sections such as protection, healing or abundance and contain a good few options and types of spells for each one. No harmful candle magick is included here, Conway tells you which spells need to be used with caution and carefully.

The only critisism I have is the diagrams of placing the candles on an altar for each spell would have been better with the instructions not at the back of the book. I also feel that some of the spells have alot of candles and it would have been nice if the symbolism was simplified to less candles or other options given perhaps. You will need at least a simple altar space to do the rituals, even if only temporary. Conway offers good simple advice on this if your new to the concept.

For a small book like this I find it very informative. It tells you about candles and what the different colours mean, the purpose of rituals, use of incense, oils etc. If you are starting out in the craft I would recommend this book as the things you need are easy to get hold of and the spells really do work.

Holds a surprising amount of information for such a small book. An ideal stocking filler for anyone new to the Craft.
