Double action candles, candles that are half black and half another color, are used for spells to reverse negativity that has been sent to you from another person.
A double action candle is essentially two spell candles in one – a black candle to reverse and remove negativity and a colored part to bring what you desire: green is used for issues regarding money, business, gambling luck, or career.
To work with a double action candle, you will need to “butt” the candle to prepare it so that you can burn the black part first and the green part second. Butting the candle means cutting off the green top to make it the new bottom of the candle and carving the black part to reveal the wick and make it the new top. By doing this you are essentially “turning the tables” on the people working against you.
Next, inscribe the black half of the candle with your enemies’ names in reverse writing and dress it in a downward motion in Reverse Negativity oil. Inscribe with your own name on the green half and dress in an upward motion appropriate oil, such as Abundant Prosperity, Steady Work, or Magnetic Attraction.
You may dress the candle with additional herbs and affix to a mirror before lighting it. As with all candle spells, you will want to burn it when you are nearby and awake. When you leave your home or go to sleep, snuff the candle (don’t blow it out) and relight when you return.
Some ideas for magical uses:
For reversing crossing related to money, business, and career, use a green/black candle and apply Reverse Negativity oil and sprinkle with Agrimony on the black half and Abundant Prosperity oil and Alfalfa on the white half. Sprinkle a circle of Calendula flowers around the base of the candle.
