The 7-Day intentional candle with the image of Lakshmi is often used to invoke the Goddess of Wealth.
By lighting the candle, it is said to illuminate and amplify a person's intentions of increasing their finances, abundance and prosperity.
When lit (especially at night) the image lights up and glows from within.
It's a devotional ritual of honoring Lakshmi, inviting her endless blessings, and illuminating your sacred space.
My favorite is, when the candle is complete, I fill the empty glass jar with rice and use it as an incense holder.
For best results, always burn the candle long enough for the wax to melt all the way to the edge of the glass before blowing out.
