Yellow--unity, success, universal love, activity, creativity, action, develop occult powers, invoke spirits, inspiration, concentration. money (Gold) attraction.
The following is a 21st century list of colors used in hoodoo candlework, which is similar to the list of color correspondences assembled by Gamachi as well as others. The magical symbolism associated with the candle colors shows an influence from European magical traditions as well as early 20th century color symbolism.
Red--passion, victory, vigor, sexual spells
Pink--love, reconciliation, romance, clean/healthy living
Orange--open roads, remove blockages, marriage, change
Yellow--success, attraction, money (gold)
Green--luck, money magic, gambling spells, business, employment, good crops
Blue--protection, healing, harmony, peace
White--spiritual blessings, peace, purity
Purple--mastery, rulership, ambition, power, control, command, victory
Brown--court case spells, paper color for magic
Black--jinxes, mourning, removing hexes and crossed conditions
Gamachi also listed Double Action candles, which are candles with two different colors, one atop of the other. Double Action candles magically combine the correspondences of both colors.
A number of traditional work root practitioners do not bother with this color system of symbolic correspondences. When they do use candles, they use white.
The symbolism involving different colored candles has also affected use of colors in other components of hoodoo magic.
According to Catherine Yronwode, many Southern hoodoo mojo bags were originally made of red flannel--probably because they had a lot of red flannel scraps. Eventually, some practitioners began using different colors of flannel, relating to the bag's specific purpose. For example, green cloth would be used to make a "money mojo."
Doubtless, other hoodoo practitioners may use color in an unrelated manner to the 21st century list. The Roman Catholic church first employed naturally colored beeswax candles (which are often a pale, honey-colored yellow). A few practitioners prefer pale, yellow beeswax candles for spiritual devotions.
The Gullah people of the Sea Islands use the color blue as a protective color. Their windowsills were painted blue to keep out malevolent spirits. Yet, I haven't read anything about the Gullah using colored candles.
Over time, different color candles have become associated with the magical use of Psalms. The addition of using colored candles with the Psalms is apparently an example of "reinforcement." Two separate blessings/charms/prayers are used together to "reinforce" and enhance the effectiveness of the outcome. In this case, the candle color system is a later practice added onto an earlier traditional hoodoo practice involving the Psalms.
Some hoodoo practice also involves "spiritwork." Certain spirits, angels, saints, etc. traditionally have certain colors associated with them. These traditional associations may be completely different than the 21st century hoodoo color association. For example, St. Expedite is associated with the color red and red candles are frequently burned to petition and honor this saint. This use of red probably relates more to the color of the saint's cloak or the fact that red is frequently associated with fast action.
It is important to remember not all hoodoo practitioners use the 21st century list of colors, and those who do may only use it in relation to the color of candles. Some do not concern themselves with matching the color of the candle to mojo bags, beads, altar cloths, clothing, etc.

If you want to change the energy in your sacred space, light a candle.
Candle magick is an age-old, powerful form of spellwork, because it harnesses the intense energy of fire. Of all the elements, fire burns the brightest and demands the most immediate attention. As it licks at the air, it consumes the existing energy and expels its own creation in the form of smoke.
The Conjured Saint candles are each delicately prepared to contain specific magick according to their themes. Draw love, good fortune, and success into your life as the energy burns and fills your space with powerful vibrations. Different color candles will draw different energies. White candles are always good to have on hand, because they draw light energy and protection. Quickly cleanse a space of negative energy, by burning a white candle. Pink candles work to bring love and affection to you. Green candles will draw money and success, and so on.
The Conjured Saint has done all the work of picking colors, blessing, and dressing the candles for you, so all you need to do is burn them and set your intentions. We offer an array of candles for specific wishes and desires. All of our products are pleasing to the eye and packed with positivity, boosting your spirits and energy before you even begin to burn them.

The Conjured Saint Ritually-Blessed Oils are crafted to enhance and promote ritual-working, spell-working and personal intent. These spiritual recipes can be used to anoint the body or tools, burned in an oil burner, or added to ritual baths.
Our sacred oils are hand-blended and bottled into “metaphysical battery-packs” of concentrated magick. Each oil contains its own spiritual life force (the soul), that is harnessed by harvesting Mother Nature’s blessings. Plants are alive, and everything that lives has a soul like essences. Roots, seeds, leaves, and petals all contain a specific metaphysical signature that is captured and magickally-infused into the oil that corresponds to each botanical’s intent and purpose.
The botanicals used are specifically selected by The Conjured Saint from our sacred, blessed garden and then hand-blended with blessed crystals to create powerful, divine oils. Crystals, like botanicals, are living beings, charged with a universal life-force. Harnessing this energizing life force into the oils allows them to continually recharge themselves.
The Conjured Saint oils are designed to endure through the use of Vitamin E and premium-selected grapeseed oil, which preserve their sacred shelf life. Blessed under the moon during the appropriate moon cycle, holy days of religious days of obligation, and according to the correct energy of the days of the week, each oil is its own life-force in a vial, ready to be used to enhance spell-work. The Conjured Saint oils are adaptable to any spiritual practice.
Botanically-infused on the appropriate days to enhance their properties, the oils are then blessed on a sacred altar under the watchful eyes of the saints and steeped with the powerful crystals that harvest the energy and vitality of Earth’s divine magick. The inclusion of crystals in The Conjured Saint’s recipes provides an energy-generating quality that is unique to The Conjured Saint spells and magickal products.
The ritual blending and blessing of the oils is a traditional ceremony carried out amidst powerful magickal, holy, and religious relics, an altar of cascading crystal waterfalls, the elements of fire, water, earth, and air, and otherworldly intervention that completes the process. The Conjured Saint leaves no stone unturned when formulating our oils, so that you may reap the benefits of divine Earth magick.
