These special herb candles are made by either mixing in the herb with the wax
while making the candle, or by rolling the dressed candle in the powdered
herb. You may also sprinkle the herb in the oil and then dress the candle
with the oil. Here are some herbs to use:
Love......Add powdered vervain and powdered passion flower to a red candle or a pink
candle, depending on the color you prefer.

Of course, these special herb candles will have to be blessed, the ritual
objective inscribed on the candle, and the candle dressed with the
appropriate oil before it is given to the person to burn. It is best to wrap
the candle in white paper cut in form of a triangle, until the person is
ready to burn the candle in their home.
