Many spiritual people use candles in prayer and/or to obtain their desires. Knowing how to anoint a candle is important.

There are three simple ways to do this.

How to Anoint Candles For Prayer

1. The first step, if used to attract something into your life anoint the candle by rubbing the oil from top to middle and then from the bottom to the middle.

The idea behind this is that you are the center of the candle and you are sending your energy upward into the spiritual plane and downward into the physical. As above so below. Creating in higher planes and bringing it into the material world.

2. The second method is to start at the top of the candle and draw a single line down the side, under the base and back up the other side.

Stop at the top to bring something into your life. Stop at the bottom to banish people and situations from your life.


3. When using a candle in a jar you would anoint it by putting the oil on your finger and rubbing the top part of the candle clockwise, or counter clockwise depending on your needs.

The whole time you are anointing your candle(s) concentrate on what you desire.
