For Periapt candles specifically, the dressing also counts as symbolism. Is the dressing (herbs/botanicals/glitter) congregating more towards the flame (magnetism, attraction) or to one specific side. Is it dispersed evenly (stay balanced and consistent) or more heavily in one spot (there's imbalance or the potential action you need is not enough or overly done)?

All of these subtle notes will help you understand what you need to know about your intention and how to bring it to fruition. If you are using Periapt candles for spell work, we believe that there is no manifestation with out aligned action, although you may find that the message is to surrender more fully.

And that means that you are here for a lesson, which means, you my friend, are here for a reason.
