Reversing Candle

You can learn how to use a reversing candle to reverse a spell, especially one placed on you with evil intentions. A reversing candle can also be used for other types of reversals, such as bad fortune or luck.

Reversing the Magic

The best time to perform a reversing spell is during a waning moon. If you sense or know someone has placed a harmful spell or hex on you, use a reversing candle spell to send that negative energy back to the person. It isn't necessary to know the person's identity for the reversing to work.

Candle Choices

Before you begin your reversing spell, you'll need to choose a candle. There are several options.

Black Outside, Red Inside Candle

Candle Choices

A popular candle choice has red wax inside and black wax on the outside. You can purchase this reversing candle or make your own by rolling a red candle in melted black wax. This type of candle simultaneously breaks the spell and mirrors it back to the sender. According to Carolina Conjure, the red wax melting over the black wax symbolizes the triumph of overcoming the evil spell.

Half Red, Half Black Pillar Candle

The pillar candle features a red top half and a black bottom half. The red wax will burn first to attract your desire, such as reversing the spell and replacing it with something you want. Once the red wax is burned away, the flame attacks the black wax. This burning will repel and reverse the negative energy and the spell cast on you. That energy will be sent back to its originator.

7-Day Red and Black Candle

Like other reversing candles, the 7-Day red and black candle is designed to reverse evil spells cast on you or reverse harmful circumstances. This candle needs to burn continuously for 7 days. The red wax will burn first to draw positive, beneficial energies to you. The black wax will burn away the negative energy, sending it back to the person who cast the spell against you.

Green and Black Pillar

The green and black pillar candle is half and half with green wax at the top. This candle is recommended by Lucky Mojo for reversing bad money luck. The website also suggests continuous burning.

White and Black Pillar

The white and black pillar candle reverses bad health luck. The white wax in the upper half attracts healthy energies while burning the black wax eradicates illness from you. For best results, burn this candle continuously.

Preparing Your Candle

Before you begin reversing the spell or current bad luck/circumstances, you need to prepare the candle.

Names in the Wax

If you know the name of the person who hexed you, write their name backwards (how it would appear in a mirror) in the black part of the candle. This is usually carved into the wax and ensures the energy is sent back to them.

Identity Unknown

If you don't know who cast the spell on you, simply write in normal forward script your intent in burning the candles, such as "I send your spell back to you."

Red Half of Candle

In the red part of the candle, write your name in forward script.

7-Day Candle

If using a 7-day candle or other type of jar candle, write in black ink the name of the person on a piece of paper. Fold the paper so it fits underneath the candle.

  • If you prefer, write the person's name in a mirror image on the glass in the black wax area.
  • You can also write your name in forward script on the glass in the red wax area.

Dressing the Candle

Dressing the candle is an important part of the spell process. Use a purchased reversing oil or create your own using essential oils. You can dress the candle by rubbing a small amount of the oil on it.

Dressing a 7-Day Candle

If you're using a 7-day candle, Original Products Botanica advises you create an odd number of wells in the candle with a screwdriver or dowel. You'll then fill the wells with the reversing oil.

Reversing Candle Prayer

While you're dressing the candle, you can say prayers to release you from the evil sent to you or to reverse circumstances.

  • Choose words that best express your desire to reverse your fortunes.
  • Formulate your prayer for the red part of the candle (attracting energies) and the black half (sending negative/evilness back to sender).

Black Half of Candle

Say a prayer while rubbing the oil on the black portion of the candle, such as, "I send all the evil and negative energy you directed toward me back to you." However, if your faith teaches forgiveness, you may pray for the person's heart to open to the God's love. If reversing a circumstance, pray for the energy causing you harm to be returned to its source.

Red Half of Candle

When praying during the dressing of the red half of the candle, you may say, "I attract only positive beneficial energies denied me. I ask God to release me from the spell and send only good things to me."

Lighting the Candle

Choose a quiet place where you won't be interrupted and light the candle. Focus on your intent and pray however long you need.

Using a Reversing Candle

When learning how to use a reversing candle, it's important give it your full concentration. This will boost the power behind your intention to ensure success.
