Novena Candles, a.k.a. Religious Candles, Catholic Candles, Saint Candles, are glass enclosed candles similar to Hoodoo Candles but with accompanying labels or silkscreens portraying Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and the Saints. Novena candles often have printed prayers on the back. Novena candles are burned as acts of spiritual devotion and in special petitions to the Saints for favors in the practice of Hoodoo/Rootwork, as well as other magical traditions.

In the practice of Hoodoo/Rootwork, Novena candles must be "fixed" similarly to Hoodoo candles before they are burned.
Novena candles can be purchased at occult shops, online stores, and at grocery stores and shops that carry ethnic goods.
