How to Dress and Work with Ritual Candles & Lamp Spells

Dressing a candle or a “light,” as they are called in New Orleans, is not a complicated matter. If using a jar candle (a.k.a. 7 day Candle), carve the name of the person whom one wishes to influence into the wax, pour the oil(s) on top while making the petition for one’s desire. Simply dressing a candle, however, does not ensure the success of one’s endeavor. The candle (now a focal point) must be “worked,” that is to say that each day one must talk with one’s spirit about the issue.

When working with ritual candles (figure, cat, skull, etc.), ritual oils and ritual powder you must first carve the purpose or name of the person you are trying to influence into the correct ritual candle or place your petition underneath the candle on some natural paper (parchment, fiber paper, etc.) Pour the Ritual Oil on your hands and rub together, then sprinkle the ritual powder on top of the oil on your hands, rub your hands together and pat this mixture on the actual candle each day you go to perform ritual work. This allows for the most powerful and effective results.

Oil lamps are used a good deal in Haitian Voodoo, they combine many elements such as spiritual oils, wicks, powders and sacred herbs, etc. They are an excellent tool for focusing the Lwa’s and one’s own energy on one objective. Spiritual oils are used as an ingredient in the lamps to help influence the situation. We can customize Spiritual Work Lamps for any need, simple contact us at with your details.
