Many of those who practise candle magic write out what they wish for on a piece of
parchment, using a quill or fountain pen to do so. Some people use special inks for
this purpose, available from specialist shops or mail order companies. (Like
everything else, the
parchment and inks have to be consecrated.)
The parchment is usually then anointed with any essential oil that has been used
to anoint the candles and is placed under the offertory candle. After the ritual has
been completed, the parchment is lit with the flame from the offertory candle and
dropped into a fireproof dish (some practitioners use their cauldrons for this
purpose) and allowed to burn out. The ashes are then buried along with the stumps
candles used during the ritual.
