Here at Inexplicable Things, we are often asked what the best way is to keep prosperity coming your way, without having to constantly burn money-drawing candles.
Two words: Money Lamp
When you want to bring money and prosperity in, but you really cannot afford to constantly be lighting money-drawing candles, a money lamp is a great way to incorporate these energies into your daily routine. And to be clear, the energies should not be about bringing more in – that can borderline on greed. Rather focus on being thankful! Be grateful! Both for the things you already have, as well as those things yet to come.
Here is my swamp conjure take on a prosperity lamp.
Start with a Hurricane lamp – you know, the old school kind with the large glass base that held the oil. You can find them either online, thrift stores, or if you live in the South like we do, Walmart carries them!
Gather up things that represent money and prosperity to you. I like to use things that actually are money – like a few coins, some paper money, even joss paper or bank Hell Notes. Add these to the base.
Next I add some natural curios – like crystals and stones that will help to amplify the power of the lamp. I usually incorporate quartz, maybe some pyrite, a lode stone would also work nicely.
Don’t forget to add money-drawing herbs. I usually will cinnamon sticks and bay leaves to mine. Allspice berries, mint, alfalfa, agrimony, and other herbs such as these.
Next, add fun curios for things you want to bring in. I am not a gambler, but taking risks is a part of our business, so I added a tiny green die I had. If you enjoy gambling, add things like dice, a playing card, perhaps, or even an unscratched lottery ticket. Add things like cowrie shells, or things from magickal and tribal traditions that were often used as currency.
I also use a bit of red pepper – I like to keep things spicy and moving along. Not alot, but a touch works nicely.
And then add those things that are goals: a blank key from the hardware store for a new car or even a new home; a photo of a vacation spot; a job announcement for something you are applying for. Get creative! * blank keys are important . . . do not get a key that is already ‘keyed’ for something that you don’t know where it leads! *
Add anything you feel says ‘prosperity‘ to you. And remember, prosperity isn’t always money. It can be happy home, healthy family members, charitable donations, etc. Add a petition or prayer if you wish.
Finish up by adding any money-drawing or success oils or powders that you normally like to use on candles. I usually add a few drops of a Road Opener, just to keep those roads open, and a few drops of a Protection oil – you work your ass off making that money, you might as well throw down some protection for that money, right?! Yeah you right, baby!
Light her up – make her shine. Just 10 minutes a day is all you need. You can do it before work, mid-day, or even right before bed. In fact, I know some that will light it for about 15 minutes before bed, and make a meditation.
Remember, the key is focusing on thanks, not asking for more.

We all know that working a spell for quick financial gain will not alleviate the need to repeat the spell at a later time. What we need to do is look for ways of increasing our abundance, each day, long term – so the need for the singular prosperity spells becomes a thing of the past.
From cultures around the globe, we see similarities in charms, talismans, herbs and stones. Therefore, there must be some validity, wouldn’t you think?
- 3 parts egg shell
- 1 part dried dill
- 1 part dried basil
- ½ part ground cinnamon
Grind them all together and use for money, wealth and prosperity spells. Sprinkle around your home.
Carry abundance charms, such as a 4-leaf clover. Some cultures feel the 4 leaf clover is a sign of bad luck, while others see it as very beneficial. Each leaf bestows some level of wealth or happiness into your life. Upper right is said to bring love, while the upper left brings wealth. The lower right grants good health and the lower left brings you fame.
Create a small pouch – using green material, sewn with gold thread. Add stones of prosperity, such as aventurine, pyrite (fool’s gold) and peridot. Add three silver coins, a pinch of lavender and a pinch of borage. Sew it up. Carry it on your person for abundance.
Obtain a new dollar bill from a bank. Cleanse and empower it with brilliant sunshine for a few moments, on each time. Anoint the bill, in a 5 star pattern, with peppermint oil. Fold the bill in half, long ways, and towards you. Wrap it around a quartz point and tie it with bright green yarn. Keep this as an altar piece to attract wealth to you.
Write wishes on bay leaves and burn them to help make those wishes come true.
Repeat a mantra such as: I love abundance and prosperity and I attract it naturally. Mantras work well when repeated about 6 times each hour.
You can “grow” your wealth! Take a thriving houseplant – such a basil, a money plant, even aloe vera will work. Sprinkle some dried alfalfa on the soil around the plant. “Plant” a silver or gold coin in the dirt under the plant. Place the coin so that half of it is sticking out of the dirt – like it was planted and should start growing. When new money begins to manifest in your life, spend that coin right away. Replant a new one, it’s in place.
Crush 3 large cloves together. Place them in a mason jar. Add a cinnamon stick and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Place in a dark corner of a cabinet.
An old Strega ritual involves using a lemon (representative of the Moon) and sticking it with straight pins with green pin heads. Cover the lemon. Tie with a piece of natural hemp cord and hand somewhere in your home.
Pour 2 cups of sand into a large mouth mason jar. Place cowrie shells and sand dollars on top of the sand. Place the lid on the jar and tie a sea green ribbon around the lid. As you wrap the ribbon, say the following:
By the Will and Power of Mother Ocean,
To whom I give my devotion,
I ask to receive the gifts of your bounty,
Within this jar of sand, dollar and cowrie.
Decorate with mermaid and sea turtle charms, if you wish. When you are done, place the jar somewhere that you will see it often. Whenever you see the jar, visualize yourself growing more and more prosperous each day.
One of the most often overlooked prosperity ingredients is lucky money rice. When fixed and prayed over successful, this easy ingredient can become a secret weapon for combating financial hardships. There are some fun things you can do. Fling handfuls of the green sparkly rice in the air – feel the shower of gifts from the Divine. Sweep it all up when finished and place in a bowl on your altar.
Carry a few grains of green rice in your wallet or coin purse to attract money on an ongoing basis. Place a small pile of this rice on a tray and trace out symbols and sigils of prosperity for your needs. After the rice is empowered, fill a small bag with some and carry it with you until your wishes are fulfilled.
Leave an offering of green money rice at the base of a tree as an offering.
And never throw or sweep your luck away! Whenever you sweep anything up, always make sure to make at least one stroke inward – toward the center of your home or property.

This time of year, I think we could all use a little extra financial boost.
This is just a little collection of prosperity boosting spells and root work that I have complied. The list includes only those spells that I have performed for clients, for myself, or that I have first-hand knowledge of someone using.
If anyone would like for me to perform a setting of lights or any candle work for them, please feel free to contact me directly. I will provide you with photos of before, during and after – as well as a detailed description of what I saw during the working, and finally, you will receive a packet/mojo of left over candle wax, herbs, and curios with complete instructions on what course of action to take next.
On a piece of paper, write down the money troubles you are having. Then chant to yourself for these problems to be resolved and to eventually disappear completely, from your life. Burn the paper.
Carry fresh mint leaves in your wallet or checkbook. The leaves will be more powerful if you can wrap them around a silver dollar coin.
Money Oil recipe
3 parts ginger
2 parts orange
4 parts pine
2 parts cinnamon
½ part chamomile
1 part cedar
Shake well. Decant into a small bottle. Blend in a wheat germ base and orange blossoms and pine needles. Allow to stand for 3 days.
Wealth Spell – using Coltsfoot
For wealth and prosperity for the coming New Year, take a husk from an ear of corn and put a dollar bill inside. Also place a hand written note on a piece of brown paper sack. On the paper, write something like:
Gods of luck
Money is like muck
Not good except to be spread.
Spread some of it (write your address)
Thanks be to the thee.
Sign your name.
Sprinkle the dollar bill and note with Coltsfoot leaves. Roll the husk up and tie together with green string or ribbon. Hang the token above the entryway of your home with a green cord or string. This husk should bring riches into your home or business!
To find money, one should make a conjure bag containing a small horseshoe and lodestone to attract and draw wealth to you. Add Smartweed to the bag – this will enable you to see how to capture the money you seek and hold onto it without being led astray by unprofitable distractions or foolish delays. Feed your conjure bag with a sprinkle of magnetic sand every third day until you find the amount of money you need. Do not be greedy!
Sprinkle cinnamon on your money before you spend it.
Always hand dollar bills out folded in half.
Before shopping, envision that whatever you spend comes back to your several times over.
Every day, drop a penny in a jar and say
“My life is filled with abundance. And all my needs are met.”
Place mint in with your money to make it grow.
Keep an organic, unshelled almond in your purse or wallet – wrapped in a small piece of green cloth. You will always have enough money.
Knot Spell for money
While tying 9 knots in a green, 13” silk cord or ribbon, say
By knot of one, my spell’s begun
By knot of two, plenty fruitful work to do
By knot of three, money comes to me
By knot of four, opportunity knocks at my door
By knot of five, my business thrives
By knot of six, this spell is fixed
By knot of seven, success is given
By knot of eight, increase is great
By knot of nine, these things are mine
Keep the knotted cord in a safe place until things turn around for you financially. Then dispose of it, by burial – DO NOT untie the knots.
I have a large variety of spells and root work to pull from. Some passed down for generations. My services have been requested by many – with great success. Again, if you would like for Inexplicable Things to set lights for you, or perform any candle work, simply contact me. I will have a few questions to ask before we begin.
Good luck in your quests – and may prosperity find you in the coming New Year!
