Hey guys I just had a quick question about the use of candles in ritual.How many times can a candle be used?Can I use the same candle for different rituals or would the energy from the first ritual interfere with the next one?Again any advice would be appreciated
It is best to dedicate a candle used in one specific ritual for only that specific purpose or spell. Remember there are no rules but rather practical guidelines.

So during evocations I should always use fresh candles unless I’m summoning the same entity?
In most evocations it should not matter to use new candles. For different Candle Magick spells, new is a better choice.
I have some of those tower candles I use to invoke dedicated to those beings.when they burn past the seals entirely, I will set them atop new candles which have been engraved.
As I posted, candles tend to become the property of the being summoned, so unless you want to cleanse and banish them after each use, here’s an idea for you:
Go to hobby lobby or wherever you get your candles[they sell LOTS of black candles at Halloween to be Xtians LMAO] get the 9"X 1" royal dinner candles, they are solid color, not dipped! and using a hack saw or serrated steak knife, carefully cut them into 3 equal pieces and seal the ends with heat[like heat a tuna can on the stove eye and press the ends a couple of seconds.]then engrave.that way, when you MUST let the candle gutter, you have 2 MORE ready to go AND it gets done hella faster. I have a special tool which I engrave my candles with made of copper tubing made like an ancient quill pen stylus, I also use it to fill in the seals which I engrave with paint, BUT That was advice from my teachers, I suspect a sharpened piece of coat hanger would work just as well, but remember, ritual is all about focus, even at the subconscious level!
