Does the spell call for a particular color of candle?
If it doesn't then I'd suggest using a candle that represents the color of protection to you. Think about what colors make you feel warm and safe and go with that.
"Traditionally" a black candle is used in protection spells. They can be hard to find sometimes, but with Halloween just past you should be able to find them more easily and probably on sale as well.
In a pinch, a white candle can be substituted for any colored candle.
Here's a link to a page about the associations of various colors of candle that you might find useful if you are going to be doing candle magick on a regular basis: https://www.color-meanings.com/colors-of-candles-what-do-different-candle-colors-mean/
Also, I would highly recommend the books "Practical Candle Burning Rituals" and "Advanced Candle Magic" by Ray Buckland for lots of information on using candles in rituals and spellwork.
