Colored votive candles

In Guatemala, the use of these votive candles is done every day. It is a tradition deeply rooted in Guatemalan society and its lore. In the Catholic Church, votive candles are burned to demonstrate particular devotion or to make a specific call. Here, the color of the votive candle is important. It determines the wish that one seeks to make. We find these votive candles abundantly in the altars of village churches with Indian influence. Mixed with the scent of copal, myrrh or white incense they create an atmosphere conducive to prayer and devotion.

Use of votive candles

These votive candles vary in size, shape and color. Handcrafted in Guatemala, these votive candles are odorless. Take the color according to the meaning you are interested in. To use them, simply remove the small paper and put them in a small tealight glass or on a dish and think very hard about the wish you are asking for.

Burn a votive candle while praying for a particular circumstance or outcome, such as a safe return or an improvement in the health of a loved one.
