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.
