Skull shaped candles work great on their own as offerings for your Santa Muerte altar, but preparing a skull shaped candle in the manner described here will give you a powerful poppet you can use to influence the thoughts and actions of another.
You Will Need:
At your Santa Muerte altar, place any personal items of your target onto the center of your burn plate or burn bowl. Set aside.
Etch the name of your target and, in as few words as possible, etch the ultimate goal or desire you want to achieve into the surface of the skull candle. If you want a business contract, etch the name of the ultimate decision maker along with the words "Award me the contract". If you want a date, etch the name of the person you want a date with along with the words "Date me".
Place this candle on the burn plate or in the burn bowl, directly over the target's personal items.
Now grind approximately equal parts calamus root and licorice root. Both of these herbs are typically sold whole or as broken chips and may be difficult to grind in a mortar and pestle right out of the package. I recommend cutting or shaving the roots into pieces as small as possible before trying to grind in a mortar and pestle. You can also make grinding easier by ensuring that the roots are thoroughly dry before introducing into your mortar and pestle. You ultimately want enough ground calamus and licorice root to cover the outside of your candle.
The mixture is complete when you're happy with its consistency.
Next, lightly coat the outside of your skull candle, top to bottom, in almond carrier oil, then sprinkle your herb mix over all areas of the oil coated candle.
Throughout the process of creating your candle, hold the image of your target in your mind's eye, and repeat the Skull Candle Santa Muerte magick prayer (see below).
Using Your Skull Candle
Light your prepared skull candle and recite the "Skull Candle" Santa Muerte magick prayer below. Let the candle burn all the way down on or near your altar.
While your skull candle burns, take time to talk to and pray over it throughout your day. Talk just like you would if your target was right in front of you and giving you all the attention in the world. Make your case, present your argument, and then command the skull to see things your way with the magick prayer below.
Disposing of Your Skull Candle
When you've worked your magick with a skull candle and it's burned all the way to completion, you may dispose of what remains from your petition using the instructions outlined in my post How to Dispose of Magick Trash.
Skull Candle Santa Muerte Magick Prayer
"Santa Muerte, Santa Muerte, Holy Saint Death,
Put me inside TARGET'S FULL NAME's head.
May s/he see as I say to see,
May s/he do as I say to do.
TARGET'S FULL NAME
STATE YOUR DESIRE!*
STATE YOUR DESIRE!*
STATE YOUR DESIRE!*
and get no rest until you make it true.
Santa Muerte, in your name, Amen."
*award me the contract!...date me!...pay me! etc.
Whatever your ultimate desire, keep it short, sweet, and to the point.

Hi. I'm new to using skull candles but have been doing spiritual work for years. My question is what's the best technique to make this type of working successful?

I suppose whichever allows your intent to shine the brightest.

How do you dress 7 day candles ?
I usually don't. Sometimes I buy candles prepared by my local botanica, but usually not. If you're asking for a simple general recipe you can use, you can rub Florida Water over the candle and then sprinkle a bit of basil over the candle as you ask the Santa Muerte to cleanse the candle while visualizing the ultimate goal which you're trying to achieve. Now that's a real simple set of instructions which you can adopt and adapt, but there are very many different ways to dress a candle. I recommend you keep studying and come up with your own method!

I'm new to this but I need something easy to do a prayer for my nephew. I'm so scared he will end up dead or in prison soon. He's taking off with the wrong crowd houses have been getting shot up his friend was killed last night. If anyone can guide me a little I would appreciate it. The only kind of candles I can get around here are white or black ones but only regular candle form.
There is no wrong way to ask the Santa Muerte for help. There is no physical item you need in order to build a relationship with Santa Muerte. Open your mind and pray from your heart. With the power of prayer you can communicate with Santa Muerte throughout your day - ask her to watch over you, ask her to protect your nephew, ask her to send away negative influences, thank her for listening to you, and thank her for accepting you. The more you communicate with Santa Muerte through prayer, the stronger your relationship will become. Lighting candles and building altars to Santa Muerte will also help you build your relationship, but these are not required. Every relationship begins in the heart.
