Florida Water Protection Bottle spell

Florida Water is already used in Hoodoo and some folk magical paths as a counterpart for holy water. So, by nature, it is already protective. Here florida water bottlewe’re going to add additional ingredients and perform a little magical work to create a Florida Water protection bottle spell. Protection magic is one of the oldest and most often asked about types of magical spellwork. Protection spells has been recorded all the way back to the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians, and is found in magical belief systems from all over the world.

  1.  Take a bottle of Florida water and remove the label.
  2. Now, cut out a piece of paper about the same size as the original label and write on it the beginning of Psalm 31:
     I come to you, Lord, for protection; never let me be defeated. You are a righteous God; save me, I pray!  Hear me! Save me now! Be my refuge to protect me; my defense to save me.  You are my refuge and defense; guide me and lead me as you have promised.  Keep me safe from the trap that has been set for me; shelter me from danger.  I place myself in your care.
  3. Write your name and the names of all who live in your household between the lines of the psalm. Wrap the new label around the bottle facing inward. You can tape it to the bottle with clearing packing tape.

 

Ingredients you’ll need for the Florida Water Protection spell. Use a pinch each. Inside the Florida water bottle you’re going to add:

  • Angelica root (to receive blessings)
  • Blue cornflowers or lavender buds (for peace in the home) 
  • Plantain (to prevent theft)
  • Pinch epsom salt (to reverse any evil)
  • 3 straws from your broom (to keep away unwanted visitors)
  • Piece of tourmaline (grounding, but also thwarts complaining neighbors)

Take 3 white chime candles and anoint with House Blessing oil. Burn one candle beside the bottle, every day for 3 days. Place a good loaf of bread on the other side of the bottle. Shake the bottle every day.

When finished, use the Florida water to anoint your doorways, welcome mat, front porch, your mailbox. Pinch up the loaf of bread and spread in your yard so that the birds can carry your blessings and protection up into the trees and throughout your neighborhood.   – Papa Gee

Move Away Willow Tree Hoodoo Spell

Move Away Willow Tree Hoodoo Spell

willow tree hoodoo spellthis is based on an old Hoodoo spell to get a neighboring enemy to move away .

Take the branch of a willow tree from its North or South side – you do not want a branch that the sun shines on in the morning or evening. Take the branch home and strip it clean until it is smooth. It should now resemble a whip. Rub the branch down with a small amount of oil (olive, canola, peanut, etc) then sprinkle the branch with black pepper. Every day for 3 weeks, take to your enemy’s house and whip against the ground on the edge of their property. (their porch steps is better but doing this for 3 weeks straight seems a little risky.) If you cannot approach their home at all, print out or draw a picture of their house and include the house number. Swat that drawing with the branch every day for 3 weeks.

At the end of the 3 week period,

  • burn the paper and collect the ashes.
  • Take the ashes and the branch to a graveyard.
  • Dig a hole in the center of a grave,
  • drop in the ashes, plant the branch in the hole.
  • Turn and walk away without looking back.

for extra power, rub hot foot oil on the willow branch instead of plain oil.

Voodoo Dolls and Hoodoo Doll Babies

Let’s talk about voodoo dolls or, in Hoodoo, they’re known as doll babies. Voodoo dolls have gotten a bad name, mainly from the movie industry, who have shown depictions of people using them to stick in pins and harm someone else. But initially, the voodoo doll was known for healing. Its origins are actually British and have been used there for hundreds of years. Most of the time, they would take a doll which is supposed to represent a specific person; it’s their effigy. And let’s say they were sick. They would possibly stuff a doll with healing herbs, and they would actually doctor on the doll too, and perhaps use a form of prayer to help heal the person. So originally, they were a work of good.The movie industry, which we know needs to market dramatics to make it entertaining, has turned the voodoo doll into a wicked thing.

Choosing a type of doll for your voodoo doll

There are countless ways to make your own dolls for this purpose. One great add-on is to take a small vile and fill it with whatever herbs are appropriate for the doll’s situation, cork it shut, and sew it to one of the doll’s hands. This works exceptionally well with something like a yarn doll or a corn husk doll, which you can’t fill with herbs. Some people like to have a fully sewn doll. You can always make it yourself or go to the craft store where they usually carry them in a variety of shapes and sizes. You can even find tiny ones for about $5 for a pack of six. Little dolls like this are easy to conceal.

But, you can use any sort of doll – even a Barbie doll. Also found in the craft store are the wooden figures used to help you sketch the human body.

  • cloth voodoo doll
  • wax poppets
  • corn dolly as a voodoo doll
  • purchased dolls like Barbie
  • purchased baby dolls make good hoodoo doll babies
  • stick dolls bound by string or twine
  • statues
  • wooden art figures

The main objective is to use an object that represents a person. Anointing your doll with magical oils to change their vibration to your wish. For example, let’s say you’re wanting to reconcile with someone. You may put something like Reconcile oil on the doll on the chest where the heart is. For money matters, put money drawing oil on the doll’s hands. For general healing, anoint the doll’s head with healing energy oil.
These are just a few examples of how you can tend to your doll baby.

The first step is to baptize it in the person’s name. You might actually bath the doll in holy water while reciting the person’s name. If that isn’t an option, you might leave it resting on top of his or her picture overnight.

voodoo doll clothAnd you care for them in different ways, depending on the intended purpose. Let’s say you want to make one for passion. This type of doll should be cuddled and kissed on. You should whisper to it, telling it all the things you want your lover to know how you feel, how you want them to think of you. And you should sleep with it for the first three nights, just like you would a mojo bag. And after that, you can tuck it in as into its own special place. Some people make a little bed for them so that you can actually tuck it in at night, showing the doll or the person you’re targeting, how much you care about them. Prove how much you’re willing to nurture them, be there for them. This is simply a way to show it affection and put that desire out into the universe. Some people will actually place this doll down their pants when they sleep. Traditionally, they would slide the doll in their underwear and sleep with it, which awakens the other person’s passion. Another way to use the passion doll is to tie it underneath your bed. If you’re in a relationship with the person and that person’s going to be in your bed, tie it up underneath, it just don’t let them see it.

regular dolls can be used as a voodoo doll or doll baby

For the act of healing another with a doll, you can anoint it with healing oils or Holy water. You might decide to put a candle beside it with the intention of the flame burning out the sickness. Don’t be afraid to use your instincts and imagination. If someone’s actually hurt in a specific place, you can massage the doll in that area. Let’s say, for example, someone you love has a broken arm. You can rub it herbs or oils, envisioning that broken bone mending back together. For depression, massage the doll’s head and send it white light. For a cold or flu, anoint where the lungs would be. This is the traditional method of using a doll for healing.

If you want to use a doll to bring more money, you might choose a green one and anoint with money drawing oil. Leave it beside you when you’re balancing your checkbook. When you’re filling out your tax returns, when you’re going over a business plan – keep it right there with you beside the computer. When you’re filling out applications, you might rest in on a bed of cinnamon sticks, which are money drawing, fenugreek, all the money drawing ingredients. A success doll is similar to a money doll. You might choose to make it in like another shade of green or purple. Work it for the things you want to achieve in life. Most of the time, this is your own likeness, and you would do the magical work for yourself. For example, a lot of success spells are done by artists and musicians. If you are a guitarist, you will play the guitar to the doll every night before you tuck it in. If you’re a painter, set it beside your easel while you work. An accountant? Put it beside the calculator!

Think about props to use with your doll baby. Let’s say you’re wanting to be a popular entertainer. Cut out a picture of a large stadium, packed with people, and anoint the doll with success oils or powders. Then place the doll in front of this image, using the stadium or stage as a backdrop. And it’s supposed to represent you, this imagery can help you define your goals and get a clear picture of your future success.

If you need a protection doll, you will anoint it with things that are protective of nature. You may smudge it first so that it is completely clean, put it in a place where it’ll protect and guard you. You can actually do more than one, putting one at the front door and the other at the back door. Think of them as little ‘guard dolls.’

Finally, we get to the baneful doll, which some call the voodoo doll. But, that’s not very fair to Vodou’s religion, so we’ll use the term ‘dolly baby.’ This type of doll is mistreated or harassed. Maybe you want someone to move away and not be a part of your life anymore. Perhaps you’ll tell that person via the doll that they will have a constant headache until they move away and leave you alone. Each day, you take the doll and thump its head against furniture or a stone. The concept is to make the person relent, and they finally give in to your will. Is this evil work? That would depend on why you want the person to leave. For example, commanding a stalker to leave you alone would be considered protective work. Another way of working your baneful doll is to burn it. Take the ashes and drive them to the other side of town and dump them out to get this person out of your life. You can throw it in a river with running water or onto railroad tracks – another way to get someone to move away from you.

Whether you Hoodoo doll baby is fabric or wood or beeswax or yarn, the amount of time and attention you give the doll is what crafts the magical energy. With perseverance, hopefully, things will begin turning your way.

New Conjure Candles released

We love creating new products and the wall where we keep all the hoodoo supplies looks a little more loved every time we invent new candles. Five NEW Conjure Candles released this month: Kiss Me Quick, DUME, Van Van, Dragon’s Blood, and Hummingbird. So we’ve got a little love, a little hate, a touch of sweetness, and a little in between. https://www.aromagregory.com/produc…/hoodoofolkmagiccandles/

Kiss Me Quick oil is meant to rekindle marital fires or to bring about a quick love affair.

D.U.M.E. stands for “death unto my enemies,” although some us it as “destruction unto my enemies.”

Van Van oil is often used to set wrongs right again. It turns bad luck back into good and is especially helpful whenever that nasty Mercury in Retrograde rolls around.

Hummingbird is already flying off the shelves and has had to be remade 5 times because of orders for it. It’s all is about experiencing sweet and special love. Can also be used to make other things in your life sweet. The scent is amazing with a blend of rose, jasmine, and vanilla.

Dragons Blood is so rich and beautiful with resin sprinkled on top. Dragon’s blood resin, amber oil, patchouli oil. chuparossa candle

Moving Candle Come to Me spell

MOVING CANDLE COME TO ME SPELL –

this is to bring someone closer to you, perhaps someone you have an interest in, but the “spark” hasn’t quite happened yet. This same work can be used for a spell of reconciliation. If that is the case, just replace the COME TO ME oil with RECONCILE oil and write your petition accordingly. This spell calls for a male and a female figural candle. Replace, if needed, according to your sexual orientation.

What you will need:

1 male figural candle, red or pink
1 female figural candle, red or pink
COME TO ME oil
rose petals
1 lodestone
paper and pencil

red or pink ribbon

First, carve the names for each person on the candle that represents them. For the male, write his name and on the female, her name. If you don’t want to use a knife, you can easily carve words into the candle using the tip of an ink pen or even a toothpick. Rub COME TO ME oil into each candle over your carvings in an upward motion. If you happen to have hair from the person you want to attract, place it under their candle. You can do the same with your own.

These candles will melt and run across a surface. You need something flat with a lip around the edges to place the candles on. A cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil makes for a simple, easy to clean up workspace. Write your name on a piece of paper seven times. Now, turn the paper and write your love interest’s name seven times so that it interlocks with your name. This will “weave” the two names together. Anoint each corner and the center of the paper with your COME TO ME oil. Place the petition paper in the center of the cookie sheet and set the lodestone on top of it.

Now, set each candle on opposite sides of the cookie sheet facing each other. It isn’t necessary to move them all the way to each edge. You want to leave enough room around the sheet so that you can sprinkle a ring of rose petals all the way around the two candles, locking them into a circle of roses.

Light each candle, and state your intention. The wording doesn’t have to be lengthy or rhyme. Simply speak from the heart and say what you want to happen. Some people choose to pray at this time. Every 10 minutes scoot each candle a little closer to the center, about an inch or so. After doing this several times, the candles should be touching (or almost touching, depending on how to candle is made) and both be on top of your petition paper. Now that they have moved across the surface and finally found each other, allow them to burn the rest of the way down without disturbing. The next day, gather the rose petals from the surface. You can either save them to use in a mojo bag later or sprinkle a few petals into your bath water on the days you plan to see your intended. Also, keep a little COME TO ME oil behind your ears or on your wrists when you know the two of you will be together. Gather the foil around the wax and tie with a red or pink ribbon. Place under your bed for seven nights. After the seven days is up, bury in your front yard beside the porch to entice them to come to your house. If you live in an apartment, you can bury at the bottom of a potted plant. I knew someone who placed it in the bottom of the umbrella stand beside her front door.

Foot Track Magic Cleansing

This is based on an old Hoodoo rite for removing crossed conditions. It can be used to remove foot track magic (like hot foot) or for cleansing a home of the residue of foot track magic.

What you will need:

holy water

ammonia

powdered horseradish

JINX BEGONE or SAINT CYPRIAN oil

Add a pinch of powdered horseradish, 3 straws from a broom, a dash of holy water, and about a capful of JINX BEGONE or CYPRIAN oil.  Mix well. Take a rag or sponge and cleanse the four corners on the house (inside.)  If you are concerned about the mixture spoiling carpeting (or anything else) then simply wipe down the baseboards in the four corners of the house.  This does not mean the four corners of the person’s room, but of the entire home. So, you will have to go from room to room to touch all four corners of the structure.  When you have done this, take outside and dump the rest on the front porch. After spreading it around a bit, feel free to pour more water on the porch to cleanse it. Now, the cleansing will be carried throughout the rest of your house whenever someone enters the front door.

Gently blow across the entire work surface, allowing the dust to settle on the candles, the medallion, and the crystals.Light the candles and say this prayer to St. Michael’Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.’

When the candles have finished burning, you wear the medallion as an amulet of protection and place the four crystals at the four corners of your house which will act of Talismans of Protection.

Down the River Enemy Removal Bottle Spell

Bottle spells thrown into running water are usually to send a person away from you – to a different location. If you live near a river, even better.

  • small bottle – between 2 and 4 ounces
  • nails
  • lemon juice
  • CAST OUT AND BANISH oil
  • picture of your target
  • red peppers

    If you do not have a picture of your target, write their name on a piece of paper seven times and write your petition over their name.

Drop into the bottle the nails, peppers, and about 1/3 of the bottle of CAST OUT AND BANISH oil. Fill to the top with lemon juice, cap, and shake while restating your intention. Take to a place of running water, such as a river, and restate your intention again. Throw as hard as you can into the water and walk away without looking back.

Fire and Salt Protection Bottle spell

FIRE AND SALT PROTECTION BOTTLE –

easy to put together but packs a powerful punch. Combines the elements of protection found in both witchcraft and Hoodoo.

  • What you will need:
  • small glass bottle with cork or lid
  • bay leaf
  • clove garlic
  • salt
  • sage
  • 2 red spell candles
  • WALL OF FIRE or SAINT CHRISTOPHER oil

    Choose a bottle that is small enough to hide under your front porch or bury near (if you have a porch that can’t be accessed underneath.) Pour about two capfuls of protection oil inside the bottle. Put inside: the bay leaf, sage, and clove of garlic. If the neck of the bottle is too small, feel free to chop up the garlic clove and stuff into the bottle. Top off with salt, filling to the top and cork tightly. Anoint the two red spell candles with the anointing oil and burn on either side of the bottle, while saying a prayer for protection. A simple biblical protection passage is found in Psalms 59:1 Deliver me from my enemies, O God; be my fortress against those who are attacking me. When the candles have completely burned away, place the bottle under your front porch or bury beside it.

Witchcraft in Nashville

(reprinted from a 2013 entry)
Some people call what I do witchcraft. It is something different. Hoodoo and folk magic are not witchcraft or Wicca. First of all, Wicca is a religion. In my practical folk magic practice I use a combination of: the gift of intuition, my extensive knowledge of herbs and oils (and how they are used magically), along with a strong sense of intention. My studio and store are located in Nashville, Tennessee, and I often see clients who are looking for ways to reduce stress and find a sense of inner peace. Other clients have other things in mind when they seek me out: to reunite them with a lost love, to find love (in general), to get a promotion or bring more money into their household, etc.

So, is witchcraft a bad thing? That depends on who you ask and if they are truly knowledgeable about what folk magic or witchcraft actually is. I think of it this way – a spell is an intensified prayer that uses a lot of props and ceremony as well as intention. So, if spell work and witchcraft is just about focusing your intention, then wouldn’t something as simple as a vision board be a spell?  Maybe, but not exactly. Depending on the result you are looking to achieve, going to someone who has studied and practiced the elements of magic can be much more effective. It is similar to seeking out a trained doctor’s advice versus going to Google with your symptoms and guessing which over-the-counter medication to buy. Also, those who perform witchcraft or identify themselves as Wiccans are usually bound by the pesky three-fold-law, a philosophy that says what you put out will come back to you times three. Hoodoo practitioners do not believe this.

I have a friend who often asks, “It is white magic, right?” Magic is neither white nor black, good nor bad. The intention of people is what is good or bad. And I repeat, the INTENTION of people – not people – can be good or bad. We all have light and dark elements about us, good thoughts and bad thoughts, good deeds and acts of misbehaving. No one is all good or all bad. Throughout the ages, many people who have been called witches were actually herbal healers. Then why is why website called white mojo? Easy,White is a family name. It has nothing to do with “white witches” or anything like that.

The oils and powders I create are meant to bring about positive change in people’s lives – ways to help them achieve their goals or to remove negative elements or negative people from their everyday existence. When I set lights for clients (also known as a candle altar service), more people have positive requests than negative ones such as healing, love, money. What I do is more known as conjure than witchcraft.

Our Nashville store offers a full line of witchcraft supplies, books, and tools as well as classes.

Charging for Readings and Energy Work

People have been debating about this topic for years – whether or not to charge for services such as reiki, healing touch therapy, psychic readings, etc. Forget debate, some people downright argue about it – passionately and loudly.

A Sense of Balance

Those who feel you should not charge usually say, “I would never charge someone for a sacred gift that was given to me. It is my duty to give it away!” This may be true for some people and I often wonder if they have some cosmic debt to repay. Other times, those who do not charge EVENTUALLY charge once they build up enough confidence in their services. In the beginning, some practitioners feel unworthy of receiving a fee.

I am of the other variety – the group that does charge for sessions. And I will tell you why I find it to be necessary.

Energetically, there is something going on with a take-only relationship. The receiver is beholden to the giver, cosmically speaking. While we don’t only do things with an expectation of something in return, neither should we expect to constantly give all of the time or receive all of the time without ever returning the favor. There must be some sort of energetic balance. In the long run, A healing session has more power behind it when the person receiving it doesn’t feel like they had been done a “favor”, something they must one day repay. Payment, whether it be in the form of currency or agreed upon bartering means that no favor ever has to be returned. Everyone is even.

Value and Intention

Everything in life has some sort of value attached to it and, many times, a level of sacrifice. Especially in America, people tend to feel a service has more value when it actually costs them something. But it goes beyond that. The power of intention is beneath the surface. When a client receives a service for free, they usually do not place as much value on it. Since they weren’t required to give up anything to receive it (sacrifice of currency) the worth is perceived to be low, which lowers the client’s belief in the process. That belief, that intention for healing to begin to take place can play just as important of a role as the energy work that is being performed by the practitioner.

Time Management

Here, let’s talk about the reality of the situation for a moment. If I did not charge for sessions and readings, I wouldn’t have the time to book and perform them — I’d be trapped in some 9 to 5 job somewhere and when you call for an appointment I would have to say, “sorry, I’m at work all week. I don’t have time to see you.”

What You Wish for Your Practitioner

Because whether you are a psychic reader, a reiki healer, a construction worker or a school teacher – we all have the same things we have to buy: food, clothing, electricity, insurance, shampoo. And sometimes the little things that keep us sane like: seeds for plants, a new pillow for the couch or even the lastest novel by your favorite author. Do the people that come to see me wish me to live in poverty? I don’t think that is the case. I also don’t believe my clients want me to eat one meal a day (or less) because it made me feel “noble” to perform free sessions. I don’t wish that on any of my friends or clients – I sure hope they don’t envision such a life for me.

In other words, I don’t believe any of my clients desire me to be hungry or in debt. I am most definitely sure clients would not appreciate a lack of heat or air in the studio because we couldn’t afford to pay the electric bill.

We pay the flowers in water, they give back beauty and fragrance. Give and take.

Everything has SOME sort of give and take arrangement. This keeps the energy evenly balanced. Neither party is beholden to the other at the end of a session or reading. The client received a relaxing session and I was able to not only help someone but was able to later go and buy vegetables, toothpaste, and gasoline that week. It is really that simple.

Working Against Yourself and Magic

You can’t plant a pot of flowers and then complain they died because you never watered them. And so it is the same when seeking out magical work. It is more than lighting a candle and walking away from it. You have to put in the intention, the desire, and the work behind what you are wanting to accomplish.

If you come to me for a spell to help you find work, yet, you aren’t putting in applications anywhere – you are working against yourself
You want a spell to make you a famous actor, yet, you’ve never auditioned for a single part-
you are working against yourself
You’ve opened your own little store and you are wondering why it is failing, yet, you only have it open 4 days a week –
you are working against yourself
You say you are lonely and never meet anyone new. Yet, you refuse to leave your house and interact with the world. – you are working against yourself

Magic isn’t a miracle cure. If your rootworker is doing everything they can to bring about change in your situation while you do nothing to take action on your end of the deal, then failure is more than likely ahead. This article isn’t meant to shame the client in any way. It is a call to action for the client to get proactive in their own future. Your car is stalled and won’t start. You’ve got your spiritual worker in the back pushing while you are in the front pushing the opposite direction. How far do you think the car is going to go? So, step aside and let your spiritual worker push a bit. Ah, the car is moving. Now, join them at the back and push with him. See? The car is rolling; actual movement and change are happening!

So, yes – if you want to hire a rootworker or spell caster to give you that little edge over the competition, go for it. Just be prepared to bring yourself as well.

How to Use Dice for Lucky Numbers and Fortune Telling

One of the oldest traditions in hoodoo is the practice of using lucky numbers. Most people used them for gambling and lottery and numerology books were some of the most popular of the early booklets found among hoodoo supplies in magazines.

Find Your Lucky Numbers

This plan of ascertaining lucky numbers has always been exceedingly popular with those persons who try their fortune at the lottery. The manner of calculating a lucky number is as follows: Take two dice, and after shaking them well in a box, throw them out, being careful to note the whole number of spots on the uppermost sides of the dice, then repeat this operation and again mark down the number of spots as before. Having done this, you then consult the annexed table and find the number of your first throw, then follow the line down until you arrive at the number corresponding with your second throw on the opposite side of the table. For example, we will suppose you throw the first time, and the number of spots is equal to 4. You must then look at the top of the line and find the Roman numeral IV. You throw the second time and get 7 spots; this you will find on the outside column, at the left hand, marked VII. Then all you have to do is to place your finger on the IV. at the top of the table and follow the line down until you arrive at VII.94 on the opposite side of the table, thus you will find the number 43, which is the lucky number. Should you come to a cypher (0) you must throw again. By following these simple directions you can get as many good numbers as you wish to play.

How to win a lottery:

While going to buy the lottery ticket, place a small magnet in your purse or bag. After you have purchased the ticket, place it next to the magnet inside the purse or bag. When you get home, rub the ticket to the magnet for 5 times and put it back together inside the bag or purse. One hour before the lottery draw is made, remove the magnet and luck would begin to flow quickly. – excerpt from the Hoodoo Witch

Fortune Telling with Dice

This is a certain and innocent way of finding out common occurrences about to take place. Take three dice, shake them well in the box with your left hand, and then cast them out on a board or table, on which you have previously drawn a circle with chalk.

Three.—A pleasing surprise.

Four.—A disagreeable one.

Five.—A stranger who will prove a friend.

Six.—Loss of property.

Seven.—Undeserved scandal.

Eight.—Merited reproach.

Nine.—A wedding.

Ten.—A christening.

Eleven.—A death that concerns you.

Twelve.—A letter speedily.

Thirteen.—Tears and sighs.

Fourteen.—Beware that you are not drawn into some trouble or plot by a secret enemy.

Fifteen.—Immediate prosperity and happiness.

Sixteen.—A pleasant journey.

Seventeen.—You will either be on the water or have dealings with those belonging to it, to your advantage.

Eighteen.—A great profit, rise in life, or some most desirable good will happen almost immediately; for the answers to the dice are always fulfilled within nine days. To show the same number twice at one trial, portends news from abroad, be the number what it may. If the dice roll over the circle, the number thrown goes for nothing, but the occurrence shows sharp words; and if they fall to the floor, it is blows. In throwing out the dice, if one remains on top of the other, it is a present of which I would have them take care.

Moving Candle Spell – Love Triangle

Moving Candle Spell – Love Triangle


This moving candle spell uses three figural candles, one each to represent the three parties involved in a love triangle. Each candle should be carved with the name of the person it represents along with any other information that focuses on that person (birthdate, personal information, sign of the zodiac, and more.) This is most often used to break up two people and have one of those people return to another person. The candle representing the two people currently in a relationship are placed towards one side of a rectangular space (you can cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil to protect it) and the candles are anointed with RETURN TO ME oil on the person you want to return to you and a combination of BREAKUP and HOT FOOT oils on the person you want to leave. The candle representing you is anointed with COME TO ME oil. In the picture you will notice that the man and woman currently together are placed back to back, while the man is facing the other woman who he should return to (usually, YOU if you are the one doing the work.) One the loving side of the surface is a “finish line” of rose petals that welcome the couple to be reunited while the woman being locked out is moved over a line of vandal root (aka valerian). You will notice in the picture that the couple to be reunited have live plants on their side and dried and dead twigs are on the side of the woman being banished. This part is a personal preference – adding this live and dried plants is simply a little addition WE chose to add. After lit, the candles are slowly moved in a way to separate the couple, moving the man closer and closer to the one he should be reunited with until they finally reach each other face-to-face. This can be performed in any configuration depending on your situation: 3 men, 3 women, 2 men and a woman, two women and a man, etc.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 bottle “Return to Me” oil
1 bottle “Break Up” oil
1 bottle “Hot Foot” oil
1 bottle “Come to Me” oil
3 figure candles representing the three people in your spell
rose petals
vandal root
– rectangular heat proof surface

From there they are allowed to burn until completed, forming pools of wax. You can use the wax for divination to see how you spell performed. Did any specific candle burn longer and faster than another? Do the wax pools “reach out” for a specific person or did the pools “hug” each other or melt together? The possibilities are endless. Be still, use your intuition, and listen.

Wall of Fire Protection candle magic spell

Wall of Fire Protection candle magic spell

Wall of Fire Protection candle spell is meant to shield you (or someone else you are trying to protect) from outside influences that mean you harm. The center candle in white represents the person being protected. We usually use a white cross candle to signify the person but you can use a male or female figural candle if you prefer. It is then surrounded by 2 red candles, 2 orange candles, and 2 yellow candles — all the colors of fire. These candles make a circle around you and are anointed with our Wall of Fire protection oil. The center white candle is carved with your name and anointed with St. Christopher oil and possibly other oils that deal with your specific situation. The work is then surrounded by stones that are meant to protect and absorb negativity. Most of the time we use angelica root around the candles as well but may choose others depending on the condition.

The act of performing this work is what is needed and no divination in the wax is performed. However,  gather up the leftover wax and place it into a white cloth. Keep it for at least three days on your altar, or beside your bed. After three days, bury in the front yard near the entrance.  You can also bury in a pot near the door if you live in an apartment and have no yard.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 white cross candle
2 red spell candles
2 yellow spell candles
2 orange spell candles
6 black obsidian stones (optional)
angelica root
1 bottle “Wall of Fire” oil
1 bottle “St. Christopher” oil

Passion and Lust spell of sex and attraction

Passion and Lust spell of sex and attraction

Lust and Passion spells are meant to ignite or awaken sexual desire. Some people use this to bring spark back into an old relationship, while others want to increase someone’s sexual desire towards them. Pictured is the female member candle spell but it can be performed with either a male of female candle.  First, the name of your target is carved into the candle along with any other personal information might connect them: sign of the zodiac, birth date, favorite color, current city, place of birth, etc. The candle is anointed and rubbed with our Passion and Lust oil in a way that simulates the “awakening of sexual activity” until the candle heats up with friction. Burning beside the candle is the “Attract” powdered incense. Sprinkle damiana and catnip around the base of the candle. You could also powdered the herbs and roll the candle it them after anointing with oil.
 
The altar here is also covered with stones, crystals, statuary, and other items dealing with sexuality and lust.  We almost always use the herb Damiana in this work because of its ability to increase the libido and sexual appetite. Depending on your situation, you might choose to use a variety of other herbs, roots, flowers, or minerals.
 
From there it is allowed to burn until the candle burns out. The way the wax melts and the shapes it creates will help you perform divination in the wax, using its images for hints as to the outcome.

Around here, whenever we feel a cold coming on, we place one drop of our oregano oil into a cup of our Cold n Flu tea and that seems to really help with the oncoming illness.

Botanically known as Origanum vulgare, oregano is a flowering plant from the same family as mint. While you certainly won’t have enough to make your own essential oil (unless you are going to plant acres and acres of it,) oregano is also really easy to grow. We keep it in the little herb garden in the front of our little cottage temple.

Some use it in carrier oils and lotion as a anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. Others find it useful for the presence of staph on the skin and use it in soaps, body washes, and hand soap. We even tried a drop of it in coconut oil when trying oil pulling, a method where you place a teaspoon of coconut oil in the mouth and swish continuously to cleanse the teeth. It seemed to work pretty well, although oregano oil can be fairly strong and left a strong tingling on the lips.

Money Drawing spell – free spell

Money Drawing spell – free spell

MONEY DRAWING spell work is something that we perform every day. Our store has a money altar near the front door where a green money candle is lit during all hours we are open and sits beside our money honey jar. Another money drawing altar is right inside the door of our little cottage church where this money drawing candle spell was created.

Here we used items that are associated with money magic: real cash, coins, i-ching coins, pyrite, lodestone, cinnamon sticks, green rice, alfalfa and other ingredients depending on your particular situation. The saint I turn to for money matters is St. Homobonus, who is the patron Saint of business people. The 9 inch green pillar is in the center but a 6 inch one would be just as effective and should be carved with your name, money symbols, and any parts of your petition that link to root of the matter about your finances and anointed with money drawing and money lasts oil. Behind this pillar candle, I also anoint a green 7-day candle to keep the energy of the spell working for a solid week. – Gee

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
green 6 inch candle
1 bottle “Money Drawing” oil
1 bottle “Money Lasts” oil
pyrite gravel
lodestone
green glass encased vigil candle

Setting this up is a matter of preference. You can see from the picture that we’ve go all out with statuary, money, coins, etc. Use your instincts as to how much or how little to do. You cannot set up a money altar incorrectly. It’s your intention that matters the most.

Return to Me love spell – bring back a lost love

This Return to Me spell focuses on bringing someone back into your life who has left. People often ask how return to me work is different than reconciliation. To me, return to me love work is about getting someone who has physically left your home/space to return to it so things can be repaired or worked out. While Reconcile work can certainly has the same “vibe” to it, hoodoo spells of reconciliation might focus on the relationship itself. For example, perhaps two people have drifted apart BUT they still live in the same house. The way I designed this working is to focus on both — the reconciliation of two people who have parted both emotionally AND physically. – Gee

The center figural candle will reflect the sex of the person you are targeting. In this picture, you will notice a male figure candle. To the left and the back of him are blue spell candles, dressed and set to healing (blue is for healing) things from the past. The candle to the right in pink and red are focusing on the future with red to reignite the flames of passion and pink to reactivate or rediscover true love. You will notice that the smaller candles are set very close to the figural candles. They are placed that way for a reason — to “light a fire under his ass.” The heat from these close burning spell candles will also work on melting the figure candle to impart their intentions on the target.

Anoint the figural candle and the pink and red with the “Return to Me” oil, rubbing upwards. Anoint the blue candles with “Healing Energy” oil, also rubbing upwards. Roll the figure candle in lavender buds. Pray over and / or write a petition to bring your love back to you and heal the pain of the past and place under the dish you have set your candles on. Light the candles.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 figural candle
1 bottle “Return to Me” oil
1 bottle “Healing Energy” oil
4 spell or ‘chime’ candles – 2 blue; 1 pink; 1 red
Lavender buds

Celebrating Yule

 

Today Yule is used to a lesser extent in the English-speaking world as a primary synonym for Christmas. Present-day Christmas customs and also practices such as the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar, Yule singing, and others come from pagan Yule. Today the event is commemorated in Heathenry as well as a few other types of Modern Paganism.

The Pagan holiday known as Yule takes place on the day of the winter solstice, around December 21 when the planet’s axis turns away from the sun in the Northern Hemisphere.

Many cultures all over the world have winter events that are, in reality, parties of light. Along with Christmas, there’s Hanukkah with its brightly lit menorahs, Kwanzaa candles, and so on. As a festival of the Sunlight, one of the most vital parts of any Yule event is light with candles and bonfires.

In the Northern hemisphere, the wintertime solstice has been commemorated for centuries. The Norse peoples that called it Jul saw it as a time for much feasting and merriment. Icelandic legends consider it a time of sacrifice. Other, traditional customs such as the Yule log, the decorated tree, and wassailing have Norse origins.

In the British Isles, the Celts also celebrated midwinter. Although little is understood today about the specifics of what they did, many customs continue. According to the writings of Pliny the Senior, this is the time of year in which Druid clergymen sacrificed a white bull and gathered mistletoe for their yearly celebration

Winter festivals were also typical in Greece and Rome, along with the British Isles. When a new religious movement called Christianity turned up, the new pecking order had problem transforming the Pagans, who didn’t want to give up their holidays. Many Christian traditions were built on old Pagan rituals and worship, causing many Pagan symbols to be integrated right into the meaning of Christianity. Within a couple of centuries, the Christians had every person venerating a new holiday celebrated on December 25th.

In some traditions of Wicca as well as Paganism, the Yule event begins with a Celtic legend where the Oak King and the Holly King go to battle. The Oak King, (the light of the new year), fights each year to take over the Holly King, (the symbol of darkness.) Re-enactment of the battle is performed in some Wiccan rituals.

So, this year will you agree to battle the old Holly King? What elements of light do you plan to shine on your life and goals? After all, it is a time of celebration and renewal. As the sun comes around again, it is the perfect season to welcome new beginnings, new attitudes, and embrace loving energies that will help you build a brighter future.

May your light overcome all your darkness. Happy Yule!

Crystal Balls in our Nashville Store

crystal ball nashvilleCrystal balls have been used for scrying and divination for thousands of years. The art or process of “seeing” is known as “scrying.” Scrying is the art of looking into a reflective surface, such as glass, water, a mirror, or a crystal, to gain mystical insight. The information gleaned then is used to make decisions in one’s life.

Many of the crystal balls we carry here at aromaG’s are crystal, reconstituted quartz, selenite, and obsidian. You’ll find both large and small crystal balls in our Nashville store and we can order extra-large balls for you by request.

Crystal balls are not only for means of divination. Many use the ball to tap into the subconscious, to bring out hidden thoughts that the one receiving the reader may not be able to consciously access. The scryer (reader of the crystal ball) may draw out these unknown thoughts and make the querent more aware of untapped thoughts that may be holding them back.

CLEANING YOUR CRYSTAL BALL
when you first purchase a crystal ball, the first thing you should do it clean it to remove any energies of other people that may have handled it before you. It can be cleansed with mild, soapy water and a soft cloth or can be wiped off with vinegar water. When dry, smudge with white sage then hold the ball to bond it with your own energy.

Placing your crystal ball on a dark surface can help to diminish unwanted reflections, making it easy to stare into the ball for scrying.

It is best to use a stand or padded ring to rest your crystal ball upon. We carry wooden stands, padded pillows, and crystal stands for the ball.
