To enhance the power of candles, you can use a small knife to carve a symbol onto the side. You can also anoint the candles with appropriate essential oils (add herbs to them), then hold the candle in your hand and rub the oil on. Start from the center and go down (toward you) for drawing spells, and go up (away from you) for outgoing spells. Some herbs for this are listed below.
