Each candle comes with a prayer to the patron saint, holy oil as part of the wax, and a prayer coin embedded into the candle. Before the first lighting, read out loud the prayer to the patron saint, then light the candle. Once the wax has burned all the way down after many uses, remove the coin at the bottom and keep it in your wallet, purse, or car - or bury it in your yard as a way of blessing the entire household.
3 oz. (2.5 oz. pour), ~18 hour burn time

When using the votive candle for the first time, leave it to burn for 30 minutes-1 hour, until all the wax has become liquid on the surface.
Regularly cut the wick with a wick trimmer (ideal length 3-5 mm).
Be sure to center the wick in the wax after each use for consistent consumption of the wax.
