Many spell workers prefer to use matches over lighters. They are environmentally friendly and add an old-time touch to your candle spells. These longer “kitchen matches” give you time to light several candles with each strike.
Use matches that match your spell. These lovely wooden safety matches are tipped with yellow and are extra long to allow you you light more than one candle without burning your fingers.
