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: red is used for issues related to love, relationships, and romance.
To work with a double action candle with a black bottom, you will need to “butt” the candle to prepare it so that you can burn the black part first and the red part second. Butting the candle means cutting off the 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 Reversing oil. Inscribe with your own name on the red half and dress in an upward motion with an oil to bring in the improved love condition, such as Attraction, Adam and Eve, Come to Me, Love Me, Lavender Love Drops, Stay With Me, Return to Me, or Reconciliation.
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 love, use a red/black candle and apply Reversing oil and sprinkle with Rue on the black half and Love Me oil and Damiana on the red half. Sprinkle a circle of Gentian Root around the base of the candle.
