You Will Need

  • Black candle
  • Carnelian
  • Paper
  • Fire
  • Asafetida
  • Fabric swatch
  • Agrimony
  • Enemy picture or possession
  • Judiciousness


  1. Step 1

    Light a candle

    Light a black candle and watch the flame flicker as you declare out loud what harm you hope to inflict on your enemy.

  2. Black is also considered to be protective, and can be used to safeguard someone or something.

  3. Step 2

    Bless a stone

    Hold a carnelian stone in your cupped hands and visualize filling the stone with light as you think of your foe. Carnelian amplifies a person's power, making your spell more potent.

  4. Step 3

    Write it down

    Write your revenge fantasy on a piece of paper and then toss it in a fire or feed it to the flame of a black candle. As the paper burns, imagine your vengeance coming true.

  5. Step 4

    Spice things up

    Sew a tablespoonful of asafetida inside a small fabric square, creating a sachet. Keep it nearby; whenever you see, touch, or smell this stinky spice, also known as "devil's dung," it will focus your energy on making your revenge spell happen.

  6. Step 5

    Use essential oil

    Put a drop of agrimony essential oil on something that represents your enemy, like a photo or something that belonged to them. Visualize them falling victim to your spell, as you recite out loud the misfortune you hope to send their way.

  7. Step 6

    Take care!

    Don't cast revenge spells lightly; if abused, the curses may boomerang back on you!

  8. The ancient Greeks hexed their enemies with curse tablets -- lead sheets etched with their enemy's name, crime, and the desired punishment.
