Trading Health Candle Healing Spell

This is a very simple healing spell using a candle, but sometimes simple is best.

What you need:

  • A candle
  • Target’s name

Get a candle and carve the person’s name into the wax.

You can additionally dress the candle to further reflect the person you want to heal. Anoint it in infused oil that smells like their perfume, sprinkle healing herbs over it, pick their favorite color, etc. Whatever you’d like to do to dress it. It’s not necessary, but it can help.

Light the candle and say,

“Candle, as you burn,

So burns away [target’s] sickness

As you grow weaker,

They grow stronger.

As you die,

They thrive.”

Now burn the candle for a set period of time every night until the candle can no longer be lit. Repeat the chant each time you lit it.

Maybe you meditate with the candle for ten minutes or you burn it while you talk to that person on the phone. It’s not about the length you burn the candle for so much as the consistency and dedicated time spent to the healing.

When the candle cannot be lit anymore, bury it in the ground. Alternatively, you can toss it into a large bon fire and let the wax burn away.


  • Blue is usually the color of healing. I like to use gold as well, but red and white are also popular choices.
  • Burying candles is a popular choice to get rid of candles, but it may not be environmentally friendly. It may be wise to go with a candle that is biodegradable such as beeswax, soy, tallow, or stearin wax. Each of those options may be difficult to source for some. Truly 100% soy candles can be difficult to acquire due to labeling issue (they’re often mixed with paraffin. Beeswax is expensive and isn’t vegan friendly. Stearin is usually palm oil, but sometimes it’s mixed with coconut oil or animal fat. Tallow is animal fat. The candles can sometimes be difficult to work with (burn too fast, smell off due to the fat not being processed properly, or produce a lot of smoke.)
