CANDLES FOR WORK, WORSHIP, AND ENJOYMENT
Candles can be used to accomplish a particular task, aid in worship, or just lend their beauty to the surroundings. Whatever the job, there’s a candle that is up to the task.
|Colored, glass-encased candles used for rituals, novenas, or as vigil candles on an altar. They have no images, writing, or designs on the glass.
|Glass-encased vigil candles used to call on or draw the powers of a particular saint. The glass casing will either have a printed picture of the saint glued to it or will have a screen print of the saint on it.
|Glass-encased vigil candles with printed or silk-screened pictures. Comparable to condition powders in that they are directed at achieving a particular outcome. The glass casing will be screen printed with images and labels that refer to what kind of working they are for, for example: Jinx Removing, Fast Luck, Break Up, D.U.M.E., Steady Work, etc.
|Molded candles used to symbolize people, ideas, or concepts in workings. The male and female versions are often used as poppets. Skull candles are used to work on a target’s mind. Penis and vulva candles are used to work on a target’s sexuality. Black Cat candles are used for gambling luck. Cross candles are used for spiritual blessings, money, marriage, among other things, depending on the style and color. There is quite a list.
|Glass-encased vigil candles used to call on and draw the powers of a particular orisha. The glass casing will have a screen print of the orisha’s veve or symbol. The color of the candle will be one that is favored by that orisha.
|Molded and segmented candles that look like balls stacked on top of each other. They are particularly used for spells that last over period of days; each day a new segment is burned. They negate the need to divide a candle with pins.
|Segmented candles that are burned to reveal a different charm(milagro) each day.

Dressing and Fixing a Vigil Candle
The process of preparing a candle to burn for a magical purpose is a personal thing. Everyone has his or her own technique. I offer here a quick list of steps to get you started.
- Clean the candle with alcohol, lemon juice, or Florida Water. (Not necessary if the candle is meant to take something off of you.)
- Trim the wick, and if necessary, re-position it.
- Inscribe the name/s and birth date/s of the person/s who need the work.
- Poke four or more holes in the top. (Steps 4 & 5 are not necessary if the candle is meant to take something off of you. Wiping yourself down with the candle will be enough.)
- Load the candle with herbs, roots, minerals, and symbolic items.
- Write out your petition and place it under the candle just before you light it.
- Pray your petition into the candle.
- Dress the candle with oil.
- Light the candle.
- Repeat your petition/pray over the candle, daily.
- Interpret the burn.
- Repeat the burn as necessary.
