Vigil Light Setting Service

Vigil Light Setting Service

Regular price $17.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Shipping calculated at checkout.

Have a one-color glass-encased vigil light fixed, dressed, blessed, set on my altars, and burned for you if you can't burn one at home or if you want my "backup" on a working you're doing yourself.

After you check out, you fill out the intake form giving your order #, petition, the names of any people involved, and any photos you want me to use.  I fix, dress, set, burn, and tend a customized glass-encased vigil light for you on the appropriate altar.

The length of time these commercial vigil lights burn varies, but it's usually about 5 days.

If you need a light to burn continuously for longer than that, book a run of lights. With a run, I fix and dress all your candles at once, but I light them one at a time, lighting candle 2 shortly before candle 1 burns out, for instance. So if you want a classical novena or nine-day burn, book two of these. If you need continuous lights set for 13 days, book three, etc.

If one of your lights behaves very oddly and burns out way quicker than usual, I will be able to prevent lapse in coverage because I tend these several times a day. I'll write you and let you know and we can discuss what this does to your length of coverage and what you prefer to do.

Limits of Scope

These work best with one petition or issue per candle. If you need help crafting a good petition in the hoodoo tradition, see this article (also available via the Education tab up top). Or you can send me your idea / draft of a petition and I can help you fine tune it if necessary (it might not be).

Divination and Reports

Report: While I do divination of the candle if you choose this option - its flame, wax, behavior, the glass itself during and after the burn - this is not like a Tarot reading where you can ask some specific questions and I can give you specific answers. It's more like "looks like clear sailing from here on out" or "your target has some strong protection and you might want to try binding work" or "you should be in pretty good shape after this little rough start at the beginning." This is a full page report with photos and sometimes recommendations, but it's not a multi-page reading getting super-granular about details  :)

Photo Only: If you don't need/want a typed report, you can choose the photo-only option.

If you're looking for more in-depth or complex altar work, you can take a look at available Spiritual First Aid sessions and/or you can book a consultation to have me assess your case for doing more involved altar work on your behalf, such as moving candle spells and more complex effigy work.

Start and End Dates: Limit of Guarantee

If you need your work to start on a certain day, please DO NOT BOOK THIS SERVICE before contacting me to make sure I can meet your needs in terms of scheduling. Any work with a promised delivery or performance date usually has to be put into writing in a formal contract.  Read more at the Client Agreement page.

This service does not guarantee a delivery date for photos/reports. You should expect that it could take me several days beyond the work's conclusion to prepare and send photos and reports. Read more at the Client Agreement page.


I reserve the right to cancel and refund any booking of this or any service at my sole discretion , per site Terms of Service. To see what my reasons might be for such a thing, see the Commonly Requested Altar Work page.

Your booking of this service indicates your understanding of the Client Agreement and acceptance of the Terms of Service, to include the following brief highlights:

By contracting spiritual services, you are affirming that you are an adult 18 or over, that services are provided for educational, devotional, and/or entertainment purposes only, and that you understand and accept the terms outlined in the Client Agreement.

The service fee covers the materials and dedicated time and altar space needed to prepare and perform the contracted services. Once preparations for the work have begun, no adjustments or refunds can be processed.

No spiritual consultation, divination, or spiritual work is intended to replace the advice or services of medical, financial, legal, or mental health professionals. Any advice offered falls under spiritual/metaphysical guidance and should not be interpreted as medical, financial, legal, or mental health advice.

HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 10 business days minimum and will be longer for custom-finished items, large orders, and some specialty/extra strength formulas. You can expect a 10-day handling time for an order with one custom item, and longer than that if the order contains multiple custom items. Why? Two reasons:
One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, decanting and praying over every oil order as it comes in, for instance. It's not a matter of just grabbing a bottle off a shelf and popping it into an envelope. And I stock only what I know I can use within a certain shelf life. That means I can have unexpected runs on formulas that use up my stock of an ingredient and it takes a few days for more to arrive, or I need to go to back of our acreage and dig up a certain root to go in your custom spell kit. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.
Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line, stuff like that.
USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that all-natural does not equal hypoallergenic. If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.
LEGALESE:  As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
