How to Make A Money Candle

Money Candle spells are powerful in attracting wealth and abundance. Remember, candle magic can look however you want it to! Every Money Candle will look different based on who you are, your type of practice, and your spiritual intentions.

This step-by-step guide will help you make a unique-to-you Money Candle! If you still want more of a tutorial, I’ve created a Green Candle Money Spell below!

Choose Your Type of Candle

The type of candle you choose will become the foundation of your Money Candle spell. Many spiritual practitioners believe a candle must burn completely for the spell to be fully released. So they’ll choose a small candle, such as a tealight or votive. Others believe the bigger the candle, the bigger the spell results.

You’ll need to decide what type of candle fits your purpose and resonates with you. If you’d like more help deciding on a candle type, watch my YouTube video – Candle Magic (Beginner Basics and Types of Candles).

Candle Color Magic

Colors infuse your spell with energy and spiritual intentions. Your Money Candle can be any color you like! In fact, I encourage you to read Candle Color Meanings and find the color that best matches your intent.

Green candles are commonly used for money spells due to their association with prosperity.

The color green represents Nature, growth, and success. This is understandable when you remember a time when abundance was represented by a bountiful green harvest. Which is frequently connected to the element earth.

Cleanse Candle

Before beginning your Money Candle ritual, cleanse the candle using smoke, salt, Moon Water, or any method you choose to remove any negative energies.

Intentions are an essential aspect of candle magic. While holding your candle, take a moment to slow down and reflect on your intentions for this ritual. Visualize your money candle spell working and FEEL it in your body. Allow this energy and excitement to flow from you and into your candle.

Add Symbols

From this point on, every step adds extra intention to your Money Candle. If you’re on a budget or short on time, simply choosing a candle color, cleansing it, and infusing it with your intentions will give you a powerful Money Candle.

However, I recommend carving symbols or words into your candle for a bit more oomph. Some choices I often use include:

  • Dollar sign
  • Norse rune Fehu (money, prosperity, success and luck)
  • Create a money sigil
  • Magic Element Earth (financial gain, abundance, or prosperity)
  • The amount of money you want to receive
  • Celtic Ogham Duir (strength and resilience)

Dress Your Money Candle

Dress your Money Candle with oils or Moon Water corresponding with your spiritual intentions. Many practitioners will also use their own spit to add a bit of themselves to the spell for incredibly powerful results.

Cover your candle in a natural oil like olive, almond, jojoba, grapeseed, or coconut; avoid using too much oil, or it may affect how it burns. Oil helps to create a pathway for your desire to manifest in the physical world.

Oils** I often use to dress a money candle include:

  • Almond Oil (money, prosperity, and wisdom)
  • Grapeseed Oil (grapes bring wisdom and are often used on money altars)
  • Olive oil (for spell potency and protection)

Add Herbs

Herbs are essential to many spiritual rituals because they are from Nature and vibrate with the earth’s energy. Add any herbs known for their money-attracting properties to your candle. You can also sprinkle these herbs around the base of your candle.

Here are some prosperity-attracting herbs** I often add to my money candle spells:

  • Basil
  • Chili Peppers (breaks any hexes or curses prohibiting abundance)
  • Cinnamon
  • Coffee grounds (to hurry the spell along)
  • Crushed Pecans (help to gain or maintain employment)
  • Mint
  • Oats
  • Orange
  • Rice

Light Your Candle

Finally, light your candle in a place where it can burn safely. As the candle burns, visualize your goal manifesting in your life. Keep an eye on the candle flame and candle wax for a candle divination reading. Also, pay attention to how the smoke moves.

Allow the candle to burn down completely and dispose of the remaining candle bits by burying, burning, or throwing them away. Completely release the spell from your mind and allow it to work as you go about your daily life.

Green Candle Money Spell

Green is often used in money rituals because it’s linked to abundance, growth, success, and Nature. However, you can use any color candle that resonates with you and the outcome you want to achieve.

This spell infuses the energy of this Money Candle into a coin of your choice. It will become a lucky coin that helps you attract money.

Gather Your Supplies

  • Green chime candle
  • An Orange
  • Mint (ground)
  • Cinnamon (ground)
  • A coin of your choice (penny, quarter, etc.)
  • A pyrite crystal (optional)
  • Lighters or matches
  • Fire-safe dish, bow, or candle holder

Prepare Your Space: Find a quiet, comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed. Gather your supplies and place them on your altar or a flat surface.

Add Symbols: Carve a dollar sign into the candle using an awl, knife, or tool of your choice (I often use pottery tools).

Anoint Your Candle: Cut the orange in half and squeeze a bit of juice onto the green candle. Roll the candle in the mint and cinnamon, infusing more money and prosperity intentions.

Set Your Intention: Hold the candle in your hands and visualize your financial goals. Focus on the feeling of abundance and prosperity.

Light Your Candle: Place the candle in a safe holder and light it. Place the pyrite crystal near the candle. Do not let the candle wax melt onto it.

Money Candle Affirmation: As the candle burns, chant the following affirmation, infusing your intention into the flame:

    Money flows freely to me,
    My lucky coin brings wealth, you see.
    Gushing in, it forever sends,
    Bringing peace, all worries end.

    Amanda – The Peculiar Brunette

    Charge Your Coin: Hold the coin in your hands and repeat the affirmation. Feel the energy of the Money Candle flowing into the coin. Place the coin near the candle and pyrite crystal as the candle burns down completely.

    Close the Ritual: Allow the candle to burn down completely and dispose of the remaining candle bits by burying, burning, or throwing them away.

    Keep this coin in your wallet/purse, on your altar, in your office, or anywhere you need it. Anytime you need to refresh its energy, rub it between your fingers, say the affirmation chant and more money will be on its way.

    Green Candle Money Spell


    By using the energy of the candle and the power of your intentions, you can create a positive flow of money and prosperity. Remember, belief and intention are the keys to success with any spell or ritual. Trust in the process!

    I hope your path is illuminated with abundance, and may your pockets be filled with the blessings of financial prosperity.
