BLACK MUSTARD SEED – Used primarily to interfere with baneful magical work that others are conjuring against you. Is said to help create confusion in the mind of your enemy. But, it can also be used to focus and strengthen your own mental powers. Sprinkle where your enemies are sure to walk. Sometimes known as the ‘seed of strife and discord.’ Black mustard seed is also a powerful herb for banishing and protection magic. If you are feeling threatened or unsafe, use black mustard seed in your spell work to help keep negative energy and influences at bay. You can also add black mustard seed to protective talismans and amulets.
They can be buried under your doorway or sprinkled around your house for protection to deter supernatural beings. If you’re feeling very bold, you can chew them for this reason or add them to pouches or mojo bags.
A common element in many Hoodoo formulas to get rid of, disturb, or confound the law, foes, or negativity is black mustard seed. Confusion and conflict will result from mixing black mustard seed with sulfur and walking out of a doorway backwards.
