Blue Flame Ritual
The Super Full Moon is tomorrow, so I thought I’d share one of my top three favorite rituals to perform on any Full Moon and hope you will find as much beauty and benefit as I do with the flow.
Scientifically, Blue flames are considered to be “complete combustion”
The perfect balance between oxygen and fuel.
They also transfer more energy and are considered the safest flame because the blue color indicates a clean burn, ie no poisonous carbon monoxide
The science of the blue flame translates beautifully to magic and spirituality.
Then there is the color itself. Blue for me imparts feelings of peace, spirituality, truth, serenity.
Generally I like to use the three day window of the Full Moon, day before, of and day after to work with rituals for gratitude and release. For me, those energies are heightened during the Full moon phase.
Supply list is below:
•Bay leaves or strips of paper
•Matches or lighter
•Tongs or tweezers
• Large Tray
Place the fireproof container on a tray so you can move it quickly if necessary since it gets quite hot once the flame is ignited.
Place epsom salts in the bottom of the container and then barely cover the salt with rubbing alcohol. Note any alcohol used must be at least 70% or you won’t get the clean blue burn. The metal in Epsom salts is what creates the blue color.
Next write your message, intention, wish, gratitude notes on a bay leaf or strip of paper.
Meditate on these intentions for as long as you’d like. Then hold the bay leaf or piece of paper with tongs or tweezers, light it and drop it into the container.
Be prepared to be dazzled!
The blue flame will continue to dance for some time before self extinguishing.
Drop me a note in the comments if you try it and let me know your thoughts 💙
