• Our yarn doll babies (we call them doll baby poppets) are handmade by us at aromaG's. We find the yarn dolls are easy to conceal or place inside clothing because of the way they are constructed. Easy to anoint with magical oils and powders. The movie industry has taken the voodoo doll to new levels, but its image is firmly in people’s minds. In Hoodoo, we use the term ‘doll baby’ when performing this kind of work. When made out of cloth or string, they are sometimes called a poppet. A phrase that hails from Europe, poppet is the older and original spelling of the word ‘puppet’ and is also used as term of endearment among the English. Doll babies can be made out of a variety of materials: wax, yarn, sticks, clay, cloth – the main point is that it looks like a person. The color you choose is a personal preference. Below, we show you what some of the traditional colors are used for. See color meanings in the description below.....
  • Our beeswax poppets come in both male and female and are crafted using both beeswax and paraffin wax. Wax dolls are good for binding magic, where they are wound in string or twine as well as fire magic where the practitioner melts parts of the doll a little at a time. The magical poppet is one of the most commonly used tools in sympathetic magic and is found in one form or another in witchcraft, hoodoo, american folk magic, and are related to West African fetish dolls. Whether used for healing or harm, poppets are not always made of cloth and have been also crafted out of wax, wood, and other materials. Historically used for healing, they were quite common in European witchcraft. 3 ounces. 6 inches long.
