Candles have been used for hundreds of years for many rituals. Just about every one of us has performed a candle ritual or spell. The simplest of candle ritual is performed thousands of times daily when candles are placed on a birthday cake (Altar). As people perform this simplest routine, the prayer is the Happy Birthday song while the candles are lit and the subject is thinking of his/her wish (prayer) before blowing out the candles.

Many people use candles for specific purposes such as love, money, luck, good health and more. 7 Day Candles in jars are the ideal type of candle to use in rituals. The ritual can be as simple as lighting the candle and thinking thoughts associated with your desire. There are rituals more involved that include the use of anointing oils, burning incense, specific type candles such as image candles, writing of prayer and can take one day to several days to complete. Candles come in many shapes, sizes and colors and those colors have a universal meaning for their specific intent.
