Use this spell when you need messages, communication, news, or some other kind of information sent from one person to another. It can be adapted to your particular situation quite easily. Think of it as your own personal “hoodoo smoke signal” kind of spell.
• Wax paper
• Masking tape
• 1 or 2 candles — color selected to reflect your intention
• 1 ordinary white candle
• powdered tobacco (snuff); if unavailable, grind up some shredded tobacco into as fine of a powder as you can get it
• deer’s tongue herb
• target’s personal concerns or photo or name paper
• Tobacco Infusion Oil (see recipe below)
To Make Tobacco Infusion Oil:
2 oz. olive oil
1 tbs. loose tobacco
Gently simmer the tobacco in the olive oil until the tobacco is soft. Put into a jar and let cool.
Using tape, secure the wax paper to a clean, level surface. Now dress your candle with the tobacco infused oil, using the wax paper as the surface protecting your working area. As you are dressing your candle, focus your thoughts on what you want to happen — who you wish to communicate with whom. If you have personal concerns, like hair or nail clippings, poke some holes in the bottom of the candle and stick the personal concerns into the hole.
This part is optional: you may prick your finger and put a drop of blood on your candle, especially if you are hoping someone in particular will communicate with you.
Now it is time to light your candle! Place some loose tobacco in a fire proof dish and light it. Speak to the candle, as the tobacco smoke rises, instructing the candle as to what you want it to do. The smoke of the tobacco acts as a smoke signal, carrying your request to the Universe.
As for timing, it is best to do this at night when your target is asleep. When people are asleep, it is easier to work magic on them because they are more vulnerable.
