Seven Day Candles burn for 7 days straight, 24 hours a day. Why would you want that? When you light a candle you are putting your light out into the universe. There is power in energy and intention is energy. You manifest your desired energy when you light it and keep it lit for 7 days, until it burns out. In essence, when you want something to come into being, you are telling the universe that you are serious. You've thought it through, the twists and turns, and have come to this conclusion. You desire a specific outcome.
Dressing the candle is like giving it an extra boost. A candle is punctured, anointed with certain oils for the desired outcome. The appropriate herbs are placed on top of the candle and certain prayers or intentions are said while doing this dressing.
Candle Magic = Candle Manifestation
Trim the wick to 1/2 inch.
If it's not safe to burn you candle for 7 days straight, the ritual can be altered. Light is at the same time everyday and snuff (don't blow) it out.
