When you are ready to anoint your candle, rub your chosen oil into your hands and then, as they manifest, place it on your candle from top to center, then from bottom to center. Many people say to bury leftover wax and I agree if its natural wax such as beeswax or soy chome candle butts or flakes etc. disposal methods can vary depending on a few things. If you melt a candle in an open fire, it will disappear completely. So it’s good for times when you don’t want the energy of the spell lingering around you — like when you’re sending a hex or jinx, or working to get yourself out of a negative situation.
