Using Seven African Powers Oil on Your Candles.

Wherever people of African descent were converted to Catholicism (often forcibly), different patron saints were identified with their own African deities and spirits. There are thousands of Orishas, but seven major ones made it over to the Americas. Anoint your body with 7 African powers /Siete Potencias [7 Powers] Oil and petition the 7 Patron Saints for assistance with your situation. Combine your ritual by burning a 7 African Powers candle or other candle suited to your purpose. Place 3 drops of Siete Potencias [7 Powers] Oil in your candle daily if you are just doing a general petition.

If petitioning a specific Orisha, look up their associated number and put that number of drops of oil onto your candle.
