Honey jars have no connection to the elements or anything of the sort, they are simply spells(primarily used in Hoodoo). Candles can be burned or not, it has no influence over the speed of the working, which being a honey jar, works relativelyslow. Honey jars are not meant to be fast workers, they are meant to sweeten a goal slowly and with time.
I am doing a honey jar love spell right now. My fianc? left me and my daughter and I found this spell. It was a bad breakup and a few days after he texted then came around. But mine is a little more complicated cause his mom dabbles in magic and is not a good person and so we are back to not talking. But it is a slow progress spell so you have to have patience. I believe mine gave fast results cause there is still a lot of love still. We just have some obstacles to get through. If anything it teaches you patience. I got a reading after starting it and the future looks bright but it will be rocky for us before we get there. I am not trying to will him to love me but to remind him of how much love we have for one another and for our daughter. One advise though....don't argue cause it makes the process longer. It takes two to make it work.
