Each candle comes with a prayer to the patron saint, holy oil as part of the wax, and a prayer coin embedded into the candle. Before the first lighting, read out loud the prayer to the patron saint, then light the candle. Once the wax has burned all the way down after many uses, remove the coin at the bottom and keep it in your wallet, purse, or car - or bury it in your yard as a way of blessing the entire household.
11 oz. (8 oz. pour), ~50 hour burn time

Directions for Use
When using the candle for the first time, leave it to burn for 2 or 3 hours, until all the wax has become liquid on the surface.
Regularly cut the wick with the wick trimmer (ideal length 3-5 mm).
Be sure to centre the wick in the wax after each use for consistent consumption of the wax.

Modern Prayer Candles for a Cause
Ira DeWitt, a music executive with a PhD in education, has always chosen to do things her own way. When a friend was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, she wanted to give her something more purposeful than flowers or a card-- something that evoked a sense of comfort and spirituality. Ira decided to create something herself, and this is how SAINT Candles – Modern Prayer Candles for a Cause – was born.
The SAINT Candles line features fifteen different candles that are each named after a patron saint associated with a specific aspect of human life. Whether someone is battling a health issue, embarking on a trip, or trying to find love, there is a patron saint – and a SAINT Candle – to help them on their journey. The beautiful packaging, individualized scents, and unique features make this an unforgettable gift that touches peoples’ hearts.
Each SAINT Candle comes with a prayer to the patron saint, holy oil as part of the wax (blessed by both a priest and a rabbi), and an Italian prayer coin embedded into the candle honoring the patron saint which reveals itself once the candle has burned down.
