I just got my santisma muerte fixed candle today. I love it but didn't realize it was designed to keep men faithful. I'm unattached and really unsure how I feel about dating, as I feel repulsed by men of the past. What else could I use this candle for and petition sm for with the candle? I don't want to send it back! It smells great!

Just burn it as a devotional candle if it does not suit any intents.

Perhaps there is a reason I got the candle. I will light it and ask sm the reason why I got it and if there is a reason to put it in my path.

So I lit the candle like a devotional candle and told Santa muerte what was on my mind. I felt a lot of spiritual energy on my altar, something I've not felt in awhile. Wonder what that means.

Today I made Santa Muerte a bigger altar and lit the Santa muerte candle to her. It sparked and popped. I think she likes what I did. I also lit some copal to cleanse the area and altar.

Santisima Muerte vigil candles are dedicated to Santa Muerte or Holy Death. Although not a regular Catholic saint, she is popular among Mexican folk magicians and her veneration has spread to other Latino cultures and also to non-Latino practitioners familiar with the Spanish language.

One of the best-known novenas (nine-day Catholic-style prayer cycles) used when petitioning Santisima Muerte is a plea for a husband or lover to be faithful, even unto death. In actuality, her aid and assistance is sought in many other circumstances as well, including for luck and risky ventures.

When burning a candle to Santisima Muerte it is common to set up a small altar devoted exclusively to her. However, some practitioners do have her share an altar, but only with the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is done by placing the Blessed Virgin (she of the Holy Birth) on the right side as you face the altar and Santa Muerte (she of the Holy Death) on the left side as you face the altar.
