Command & Compel Spells

1. Commanding Oil
This is the basic recipe I use, from my own book of shadows, to create a Commanding Oil; and this recipe has worked successfully for me.

Items needed:
Herbs: calamus root and licorice root– other plants with strong commanding properties may include vetiver and bergamot, which is a good commanding herb for matters pertaining to finances
Oils: you can use as a base– olive oil, baby oil (unscented), or mineral oil; for a commanding oil of malevolent intentions, use castor oil

Combine and crush your chosen herbs in a mortar and pestle, add them to the oil. Either heat the oil in a pot just until you begin to smell the herbs, releasing their energy, and pour it into a jar; or add the oil and herbs directly to a jar and leave it sit beneath the sun or the moon for several hours.

It’s that simple.

2. Do My Bidding Spell
In order to get another person to bend to your will and do what you want, you will create a candle spell using Commanding Oil. You will, in essence, put yourself above your target, overpowering them magically, allowing the oil to do its work.

Items needed:
1. One black candle to represent your target
2. One white candle to represent yourself
3. Commanding Oil
4. 3 straight pins

Carve the name of your target on the black candle and anoint this candle with Commanding Oil. Insert three straight pins an equal distance apart about an inch from the top of the candle. Carve your own name on the white candle. You will situate these candles so that the white candle representing you is above the black candle representing your target. I’ve actually taken a small slip of paper and written on it exactly what I wanted the target to do, folding it and slipping it beneath the black candle.

You will situate these candles so that the white candle is positioned above the black candle. As the black candle burns down, the straight pins will eventually begin to fall, and as they do, so too, the will of your target will crumble.

Take the remnants of this spell and bury them in the earth.

  1. Good evening Queen,

    Im interested in casting a compelling spell against myself to becoming more dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle. Would this spell work for me?

  2. hello!what does it mean if the first 2 fall out easily and the third falls but not as cleanly? The end part seems to be clinging to the wax – the way it is falling///should the spell be repeated? Thanks so much

    • Greetings! Repeating the spell is not necessary and probably not desirable. The way the pins fall may be significant, in that you might still run into an unexpected bump in the road on the way to whatever it is you’re trying to attain through this magick. It may also mean that the universe (aka a higher power), or an individual you’re unaware of, may be manipulating events behind the scenes. It may also mean that the process is just going to take longer than expected to achieve the desired result. There are so many ways to read and interpret the candles and tools you’re using in a spell and how they’re burning, or which way they’re falling, etc. Usually only the person who cast the spell will be able to come up with the answers. Case in point, I work at a metaphysical shop in Nebraska, and I can’t tell you how many calls we get with people wanting to know why one candle is burning faster than the other; or a candle is taking longer than it should, or something else went haywire in the procedure. The spell caster alone knows exactly what they were intending; they alone know exactly what energy was present during the casting and how it felt. Do you see what I mean? After you gain some confidence spell casting, you’ll be able to interrupt these things for yourself, and you’ll also be able to figure out when it just is what it is.

  3. Should i let the candles burn out completely?

  4. Hi can I keep the spell remnants ? This is something I want to bring to me..
    And is it okay to do it more than once on the same person say for a different request? Thanks so much!!

    • Will burning these candles one timework do i have to burn them. Again suppose they turn black while they are burning do i to burn them a gain ehere does i get these herbs from can i put more than one person name in the can dle do i buried the glass to

  5. Hi my bf left me and marrying another woman. It is not possible for me to caster any spell at my home. Could you help me please

    • If this man has dumped you for another woman, and they’re getting married, he’s not your boyfriend anymore. Believe me, you don’t want him back. There are other (bigger and better) fish in the sea. It hurts, and it may hurt for a while, but the pain will subside, and your life will move forward. You may be very surprised one day to meet someone when you least expect it, and you will be so grateful that you were free and ready for the new connection. I am curious as to why you wouldn’t be able to cast a spell in your home.

  6. Hello Amythyst Raine, I just want to know is it ok to still pray about your situation although you have done any spell? Thanks

    • Traditionally, it’s thought that you do the magick and then put it out of your mind to let the energy work undisturbed, but I believe there are so many people practicing witchcraft and incorporating it into their lives along with such a variety of other spiritual practices, that this is an entirely personal thing. If you feel that prayer empowers you and your magick and your intentions, then it probably does. Go with your intuition and natural instincts.

  7. HELLO,What type of black and white candle should I use for DO MY BIDDING SPELL?

  8. Is this spell white magic?

    • Depending upon the magickal practitioner you ask, you’d probably get a variety of different answers. Even in the occult world there are extremists at both ends. There are the fluffy bunnies who are ever in fear of getting their feet wet and doing some ballsy magic that’s got some in-your-face punch to it because they might offend someone or something, and at the other end of the spectrum are people who love the dark aspect of everything, the darker and more warped the better, and they are always searching for something darker. Personally, I would say this magic falls in the shady gray area. Follow your own moral guides. Cast at your own discretion.

  9. Hello Amythyst Raine,
    I couldn’t find the licorice root so I bought the powder form and also the Calamus oil. I wanted to know would that be ok because I don’t own a mortar and pestle. I am going to invest one soon but in the mean time will the powder Licorice Root work for my commanding spell or do I need to add another ingredient to help it??

    Thanks

    • Those will work just fine, Jackey. Never be afraid to take a spell and make it yours, improvise, use your own ideas, add new things or ritual to it, remove things or ritual that you don’t feel a connect with, work with it, play with it, and most of all…make it magickal! Blessings

  10. Hello I am just curious about doing the command spell. I watched another witch video and she said to use the Black candle for yourself and the white candle for the person you want to command, but you’re saying do the opposite. So now I am really confused. Also can this command spell be used for a group of people or a entity, ie a company. No one specific person, name unknown.

    • Also can this command spell be used for a group of people or a entity, ie a company. No one specific person, name unknown.
      Yes to all of the above.
      And to reiterate what I sent in the email– If you ask 5 witches how to do one particular spell, you’re going to get 5 different answers. Spell crafting is like cooking, and everyone does things just a bit differently and uniquely, suiting to them and their energy and their associations. As I said, “It’s okay if my potato salad is a little different than your potato salad. I’m betting that it’s all good.”

  11. I’m writing exam and I’m not doing well, but I want to pass
    Because I’ve invested money and time in it which I can’t bear it when I fail…please I want to pass. What do I do

    • Hi, Jean! First I hope you’ve done all the mundane things that go along with success, like working hard, studying diligently, and completing assignments. After that, you’ll have to browse the Free Spells here and find one that pertains to you and your unique situation, or one that you can easily modify to do just that. I don’t have the time to put personal spells together for people, I would be inundated; but I do have a Spell Consultation service at my website The Witch’s Corner ~ https://amythystraine.blogspot.com/p/creating-spellsconsultation.html (this is not free), or I do have a Candle Altar Service, and I can dress and burn a spell candle for you, for more info, follow this link ~ https://amythystraine.blogspot.com/p/candle-altar-services.html

      I wish you success on your endeavors, and good luck with those final exams!!

  12. Blessed be I want to use Compel and Command spell. Just want to now if there would is a certain moon cycle that I need to follow? Thank You

  13. Thank you for this…would it be suitable to compel a conman to return money to my son (not me)

  14. Hello, can you please tell me how i can pull crowd, make them do my bidding, and make people sponsor my programs, thanks.

  15. Oh and I need to know by tomorrow and don’t know the judges name that will be doing my hearing or whatever going on tomorrow not really sure because he’s people bring it down the kids won’t tell me anything so should I just use a Demon Hunter or should I use a spell

  16. And if not do you know any old Norsk rituals that may be a better way maybe with The gods help I named NY son after to honor the god and to keep his legends alive do you think maybe he would listen and help or am I better off with Forneus and or Paimon

  17. OK so I am eitherblooking to conjure up Forneus or Paimon to have them bend the will of the CPS women who illegally kidnapped my twin babies for my son rolling off the bed the judge to rule in my favor so that the twins are within my custody again and anyone else whom may try and take them from me
    I like your spell it sounds like what I need but is there either a spell I could use to target them all or what items spells spoken words and anything else I may need to get the two goetia demons to answer my plea

    • Hello, DDD (interesting name)… I have to say that I’m not familiar with the two entities that you’ve listed, so I can’t give you any info on them. However, may I suggest that your first focus for a magickal working should be for the protection of the children, and I would advise using white energy for this. The spell should focus on keeping them physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually safe; and keeping them HAPPY, no matter where they are, or who has custody. I know this is not what’s foremost on your mind, but putting their welfare first would generate lots and lots of positive protective energy….think about it.

  18. Can I do the spell without Calamus root, can I use something to hold the white candle while it burns down because it was hit when I tried it without calamus root.

    • I’m on the comments editing section right now, not the blog page– if you’re referring to the Commanding Oil, calamus root and a broken chain are the two main ingredients in the traditional recipe. But think of it like cooking– change things up and do some experimenting. There are several other herbs connected to this type of energy. Get yourself to a book store, or start looking things up on Google…It will take some research and hearty experimentation, but that’s all part of the fun called Magick!

  19. Can I do the spell without Calamus root, can I use something to hold the white candle while it burns down because it was hit when I tried it without calamus root.

  20. How many days should a controlling spell be done? A Youtuber witch mentioned 9 days. Can it be done in a day? 9 days is too long. Thank you

    • It all depends on how YOU want to do it. There’s always more than one way to cast a spell. Magick and spell-crafting are something that is very personal and unique to each practitioner. This is an aspect of magick that takes beginners a while to realize. Never be afraid of making a spell your own. Add your own energy, your own ideas, and your own unique practices and correspondences. Blessings, Amythyst

  21. will controlling oil work as well?

  22. Can I use cloves or fennel seeds instead of calamus. I’m having a hard time finding calamus root? I got to know that cloves and fennel seeds are too used for commanding. Please help me out I would love to know your opinion. Is there a specific moon phase or day I should keep in mind while making this oil

    • I’m going to be doing a video tutorial (The Witch’s Corner ~ FAQ) very soon on this topic, as I’ve gotten other mail in asking about Commanding oil.
      Subscribe to my youtube channel for automatic updates, or keep an eye on this blog. (I’m busy getting June tarot readings up this week.)

  23. Oh, if you were to give me an average time, how long would you say it would take for this spell to work, or maybe I should be asking you how long it took for it to work when you did it? what are the signs that lets you know that it is working? I know that it is different with everyone but I’m just trying to get an idea of what I should be looking for.

    Thank you.
    Eric.

    • No one can predict how long it will take a spell to work, and the best thing you can do when working magick is to cast a spell and then forget it. Worrying and fretting or wondering over it is all producing energy, and this energy will often interfere with the movement of energy you’ve started with your spell. Let the magick work, and it will. πŸ™‚

      • I did the spell again and this time the black candle burnt itself down to almost nothing, there was almost nothing left of the black candle, but there was lots of remnants/ wax left from the white candle, it’s as though the black candle just disappeared into the air, most of it that is, what was left was about the size of a dollar coin. Is this normal and what does that mean ? The only candles that I’ve seen done that are the large ones that comes in the jar/bottles. I am just wondering what it means of if it means anything.

        Thank you.
        Eric.

        • Welcome to the wonderful world of magick. I’ve had huge-ass spell candles that are suppose to burn for days go up in minutes. My explanation? Since magick is all about energy, both creating and moving it, I believe that when this happens it’s a great big green light that you’re moving some pretty awesome kick-ass energy in a very big way. It’s pretty cool, huh? πŸ™‚

  24. When placing the pins into the candle, do I place them at the same level or at equal distance going downwards to the end of the candle.

    • Hello, Eric…in this particular spell (which I’ve actually done myself), I placed the pins one inch from the top of the candle equal distances apart around the circumference at that point. Am I describing it clearly enough? When I picked the candle up and tipped it too look straight at the top, where the wick is, it looked like a pin-wheel, the pins all the same distance from the top of the candle, and fanned out around it.

      • Thank you for clarifying that for me, I did it but I put the pins 1 inch apart going from the top to the bottom of the candle and I stuck the pins all the way through the candle, I kept an eye on the candles and notice that the white candle burned out within an hour or two but the black candle took about six hours to burn out which I found pretty strange since they were both the same candles except for the color.
        Is this a normal thing or was/is my situation a strange one?
        Please let me know so I have an Idea what to expect in the future.

        Thank you.
        Eric.

  25. Dear Amythyst Raine ,thank you for these informations, I would like to know, if I am required to burn both candles at the same time, black and white, or should I burn only the black candle?

  26. hi is this spell to be done during the waxing or waning phase?

  27. Can I use the do my bidding spell on a lover?. How long does it take to work. Cand I annoint the candle with castor oil alone. Thank you

    • You can cast a “do my bidding spell” on anyone. No one can predict how long it will take a spell to work. Castor Oil would work just fine as a base, but you’re going to want to add a pinch of calamus root and licorice root to it for it to work as a commanding oil.

  28. I am glad i came across this spell it speaks to me. However I did not make the commanding oil myself i bought it from a store ready made. Is that ok? I want to cast a spell on this guy who keeps promising me he would send money for me but never does it or if he does, he sends little amounts never the amount he says he would send. Can i use this spell on him to make him send the money as promised on a monthly basis? What is the best time to perform this spell?

  29. If you do not have a garden to bury the remnants, can you dispose of it differently? And will i need to let the white candle burn out as well?

    • Yes, let the candle burn itself out, but as I stated in another comment, never leave a candle burning when you’re not at home, or if you’re sleeping. You can “snuff” a spell candle out and relight it later, but you should never blow a spell candle out; it dissipates the energy and stops the work. If you don’t have your own ground on which to bury spell remnants, look for another spot you can do this– could be a quiet stretch of country road, a large park, at a crossroads, etc.

      • Thanks for your reply. I live an apartment in the citu and it is difficult to find a yard or crossroads. Can I just throw it in the trash receptor? By the way if I don’t have a white candle, can I use other colours instead? Pls advise.

  30. I Want To Be A Magic How Will I Start The Spell And Items Needed

    • You have to back up, slow down, begin at the beginning, and start reading…books. Check on Amazon for books in the subject matter of your interest. You can often get good deals on used books at Amazon. I give all the information needed at this blog to cast these spells, and I’m assuming it’s pretty self explanatory. If not, then you need to do some more reading and research on your own.

  31. I think someone is controlling me. compelling me to do or not do certain things. I know who it is–my ex-husband. Would a spell like this work to stop him from compelling me?

  32. Thank for your post

  33. Can you make a commanding oil with only licorice root? I am doing a freezer spell and would like to dip my pen in commanding oil when writing my petition.

    • In actuality, you can try anything once and see if it works (or how it works). When I’m making oils, powders, or potions, I’ve just always included at least 3 ingredients (or 6, or 9)…magickal numbers. My premise for this is first homage to the three faces of the goddess (maiden, mother, & crone); and the inclination to attach magickal power to the number 9: “By the awful awesome power of 3X3, So mote it be.” Everyone has their own unique way of practicing witchcraft; they might follow all the rules to the letter, their noses stuck in someone’s book, when they first start out. But once they feel their power build, and they can sense their control over it– they are unleashed!

  34. Once the pins falls out do I have to continue to burn the remaining candle out of can I snuff it and bury it?

    • I would allow this spell candle to burn itself out, even after the pins have fallen. But one word of caution…You should never leave a candle burning when you are not at home to watch it, or if you are sleeping. It is perfectly okay to snuff the candle if you leave the house, or go to bed, and light it again at another time. Just remember to snuff, don’t blow, a spell candle out. I love this spell, by the way. It’s works like a charm (no pun intended). πŸ™‚

      • Hello, how many days shall I do the commanding spell for? A youtuber Witch said 9 days but that’s too much. Can I just do it for one day and be done? I like that yours is simpler.

    • ex is trying to take them now cuz he thinks I’ll loose but I’d say talk to an attorney not magic in

      ed Well one talk to an attorney two I’m dealing with the same but both my kids are in fps for my son Rollin off the bed and my end

  35. Yes I’ve stopped smoking, so hopefully he doesn’t request the hair follicle test before my hair is clean…it goes back 90 days. Thank you so much for your time and comments. I may just take the spell consultation if things get messy when the lover he hates returns from North Dakota. But you are right, my biggest defense is to not smoke weed then he won’t have power over me and I can refine the custody agreement without fear of him having the upper hand. Thanks so much

  36. @Chelsie…above, right below the directions for Commanding Oil, is another spell: “Do My Bidding”….you could use that one. Be very specific, and you should do just fine.

  37. @Chelsie…Domestic issues are the stickiest, the trickiest, the most unpredictable, and the most volatile– on so many levels. (These words from my mother– a retired police officer,)

    First– uncomplicate your life and remove an indiscretion that could cost you the custody of your child…

    Stop Smoking Pot

    I don’t know, off the top of my head, what I would do magickally for this situation in detail, and I wish I had time to just browse The Books and come up with a personal spell for you, but I don’t. I get too many requests like this.

    If you have the ingredients for the spell above, simply follow the directions, and follow through with it.

    If you’d like a Spell Consultation, follow this link:
    http://www.ladyamythyst.com/spellconsultations.htm

  38. Very useful information, thank you!

  39. I’m going to give this a try….I’m more powerful than I know. Guess I’ll see what happens

    • You will do beautifully– and it’s funny you should say what you did…most people are way more powerful than they realize, in many ways, on many levels. Good luck, Chelsie!

      • I just received the licorice root and calamus root and jojoba oil in the mail. Do I need to cast a circle or do anything special while I make it?

        • That would be your decision. You have to experiment and find out what works for you. Sometimes I do cast circles, and more than often, I don’t. One thing that’s pretty consistent though– I *always* focus on my intention…it’s all in the mind, all of it.

          • I’m a beginner and am not sure how to go about my spell so that it is done properly in a way that won’t backfire or be malicious. My sons father keeps threatening me to take me back to court to take my custody or to gain more custody than me, due to his jealousy of my new romantic partner. He has threatened to do a hair follicle test because he knows I use cannibis, to use that against me to gain custody. I’m not sure where to start or how to go about it. I just want him to leave me alone and stop trying to control what I do in my personal life ie. the new partner to whom he swears he will go back to court so his son won’t be around this guy. So? Any suggestions on how to go about this?

          • Hello…can this be used to compel someone from another country?

            • Magick has no physical bounds. Just like you can do long distance healing with Reiki, or a long distance tarot reading, the target of your magick does not have to be physically near you.

      • So there is no spell to say along with this? and do you have any suggestions on how to put the white candle above the black? shelf.. or?

        • Hello, Maddy! ~ I’m sorry I’m so late getting back to you, it’s a long story, but life is very topsy-turvy and busy right now. First, spell words to say– if there is no written words for any spell, and you feel that something should be said…say what’s in your heart. Second, placing one candle above the other– I placed my small glass votive candle holder on the bottom of a large coffee mug I had turned upside down for this purpose, it’s okay to improvise.

      • Hello ma’m amythyst raine I just want to ask question about bidding spell i am confused about the candle to use. Because ma’m I thought in commanding spell the candle to use is purple, red or black representing you. White candle representing the person your commanding. Please correct me thank you

        • I use purple candles for spirit work, and to enhance visions and psychic awareness. White can substitute for any other candle color. There is no wrong way, Josie– if you have a color that you resonate with, use it for yourself; if there is a color that connects with you and is all about power and control, use that for your target. And then, you can always go with the original colors called for in the spells. Improvising is always ok. It’s all about moving energy, and if you’ve got a strong connection with the tools you’re using and your intention, all the more powerful it will be.

    • What or who are you going to compel? I’d like to, for my animals. Safety,etc… Let us know if it worked, please. Blessed be.

  40. Valuable information. Blessed us I uncovered your web site out of the blue, and I’m stunned the key reason why that automobile accident did not came to exist previous! We saved them.
