A client of mine needs a reversing candle right now, but there are none of those nifty half-and-half ones to be had in this lovely town.
So I made one the old-fashioned way.
The process moved much quicker than I expected, so we begin with the program already in progress:
I melted some yellow wax in the oven, sprinkled it with money herbs, and rolled these green candles in it.
Here you can see a closeup that shows a little of the yellow wax.
Next, I broke up some black wax by cutting up a small taper.
The purpose of cutting up the taper - on the diagonal, mind you - is to free it from the wick, which I discarded.
Next, the wax is laid on a foil-lined cookie sheet, which is placed in a 350°F oven.
Five minutes later, the wax is removed from the oven and sprinkled with harsh protective herbs. The green candle is rolled in the wax.
Voilà - a black-over-green reversing candle to "bounce back" financial bad luck, back to its source.
