You will need:
- white human shaped candle of corresponding gender
- myrrh or mint oil
- photograph of sick person
- clean white cloth
To help speed recovery from an illness, write the sick person’s name on a white human shaped candle of the correct gender (if you cannot find the correct candle, a regular white candle can be substituted). As you anoint it with 3 drops of myrrh or mint oil, visualise healing energy in the form of white light flowing from your hands and into the candle. Recite:
In the Divine name of the Goddess who breathes life into us all, I consecrate and charge this candle as a magical tool for healing.
Place the candle on top of a photograph of the sick person and then light the wick. As the candle burns down, focus on the person in the photograph, willing him/her to be well again. Then recite:
Magic mend and candle burn
Sickness end, good health return
Continue to focus and recite until the candle burns out on its own. Take the remains, wrap in a clean white cloth and bury it, thus burying the sickness.
