Fixed Candle 101

Fixed candles, sometimes called prayer candles, are a great addition to your wellness or spiritual regimen. Whether you’re looking to improve your health, boost your manifestation or improve your mental or emotional state, a fixed candle can support you when paired with your efforts and intentions. These candles are specifically prepared to hold space for you and help you see results more quickly. Think of these candles as sacred tools to help you navigate your path. 

What is a Fixed Candle?

A fixed candle is a candle that is specifically and purposefully made to support your efforts. They can include any combination of herbs, salts, crystals, powders and oils. And they are always crafted with specific intentions to help you along your way. That’s why they’re calledfixed. Because a particular purpose and intention is fixed or put into them. These candles can support you in things like prosperity, peace, healing and manifestation. Fixed candles are meant to burn without interruption. Depending on the maker, they can burn anywhere from two days to seven days. 

How to Use a Fixed Candle

When you decide to bring a fixed candle into your energy work or wellness regimen, it helps to prepare yourself first. If you haven’t set solid intentions yet, it’s time to do so. Get clear on what it is that you want for your life and what you want out of your life. Once you’ve laid your foundation it’s time to cleanse yourself and the space where you will burn your candle. Fixed candles are meant to be burned continuously, the entire length of the wick. Once it is lit, it should remain undisturbed.


As your candle burns, you should commune with it daily. You want to build a relationship with it. Pray with it, meditate on its flame, focus on your intentions and visualize your future in the present tense. Zoom in on what it feels like to live the life of your dreams. Get personal with your candle and honor its medicine. Reverence your fixed candle and allow it to help bridge the gap between what you need and where you are. Keep in mind that fixed candles work in conjunction with the Law of Attraction, so the more closely you align yourself with your goals and intentions, the more speedily you’re able to reach them. 

Special Precautions

Energy work is deeply personal and should be protected. It is in your best interest to be a little secretive with your rituals, meditations and spiritual medicine. Energy is a powerful thing that can be moved one way or another relatively easily. Sharing with someone who does not have your best interest at heart or who is not giving you genuine positive energy can slow down your process or change your outcome. The last thing you want is for someone’s bad medicine to interfere with your spiritual or energy work. It’s also important to be mindful of how you dispose of your fixed candle or reuse it since it was created for a specific purpose and because you entrusted it with your energy. Be sure to follow the instructions of the candle maker.
