Start with a clean lamp - a new one is best - but a used one is fine as long as it has been thoroughly cleansed.
At the bottom of the lamp place a magnet and a personal object from the person the lamp is intended for or their name written on parchment paper cut in the form of a cross. Add a small piece of High John the Conqueror root. Pour in two ounces of virgin olive oil that has been thoroughly infused with two tablespoons of the following mixture:
Two parts sandalwood, five-finger grass and frankincense with one part cinnamon and one part grated lemon peel or lemon flowers.
Now select five of the herbs from the following list and add 1/2 teaspoon of each:
Cinnamon - Yellow Dock - Squill Root - Silver Weed - Jezebel Root - Prince's Pine - Red Clover - Buckeye - Irish Moss - Five Finger Grass - Elm Bark - May Apple or Mandrake Root - Tonka Bean - Sweet Flag Root - Vervain Leaves - Golden Seal - Bay Leaf - Laurel - Curry Powder - Nutmeg - Fenugreek - Tarragon
Fill the rest of the way with your basic fuel mixture. Light the lamp and recite a prayer to Saint Anthony, or whatever deity you wish to invoke for success and/or victory.
Once it is lit, the flame must not be extinguished until the goal is accomplished. Each day at the same time, your desire should be restated and the prayer recited while turning the lamp in a clockwise direction (to get the ingredients moving), and the lamp should be refueled if necessary.
Note: If some of the ingredients seem difficult to acquire, feel free to use any herbs and oils that are useful in spells for success. For example, a small citrine can be substituted for High John the Conquerer Root.
