I'd like to share what I have learned from couple of professional workers how they prepared the Skull candle.
This is what they did...
- Pick the appropriate color of the candle for your desired outcome. (such as red for love, or just plain white)
- Carve the name of the person on the candle. (I believe it was nine times, vertically)
- Load appropriate herbs mixtures / petitions on a parchment paper (square) with the person's name in the base of the candle. (Poke a hole with screw driver and add them, then seal it with the wax.)
- Put appropriate spiritual stones in their eyes. (small ones that fits in the eyes)
- Stick pins on the top of the head, back of the head, and I believe on the ears as well. (so that the intended target will come to their senses)
- Also another worker asked me to urinate in a small bowl, then added the skull in it.
- Light the candle, speak to it as you are taking to him/her, putting ideas into his/her's head.
Now all of this is what they did, and correct me if I am wrong on certain parts since I am not a professional root worker. I am just sharing what they did so maybe you can incorporate these tricks. I just found these process very interesting.
