Asafoetida Devil's Dung Questions and Answers

Unread post by HidingInSight » Fri Apr 20, 2018 9:22 am

Great!

Thank you!

I have read on some websites to be careful using Devil's Dung because they say it clears ALL spirits out even yours and good ones? They say to take your spirits out of the environment completely before burning it.

I don't know if this is true or not, but I have some Orisha in my living space so it has me wondering.

I wouldn't think it would be an issue because I wouldn't be actively trying to exorcise my Orishas, but I wanted to ask the pros rather than assume.

Thanks ahead of time!

HidingInSight,

I have moved this query to a brand new Asafoetida (Devil's Dung) thread because the topic had drifted away from 4 oz. oils.

First, i have no idea about Orishas, but if they are benevolent, angelic, or deific, they are not likely to be driven away by Asafoetida. It is used for healing, protection from disease, and many other good things.

Second, i cannot speak to your online sources, but if you follow a Santeria / Lukumi path, you ought to be consulting a Santeria / Lukumi priest or priestess.

Good luck!

Oops. Sorry Cat.

Um, I don’t know if I can be put in a religious box. And not saying you are doing that at all. Maybe I should introduce myself in this introduction page I hear of.

But your insight is very helpful nevertheless. I should prob get a reading about it.

And I don’t have to use it right away.

Blessings to you, Cat. Thanks for your help.

Hiding.

I know that Asafoetida is considered foul-smelling, but might I be the only rootworker here who thinks it smells rather enticing, like a Middle Eastern spice? Not that I would ever cook with it (!), but its smell reminds me of cumin more than anything. Perhaps I just have a strange nose.

I do consider it a powerful ally in repelling evil energy, and it has never let me down in that regard. It is equally effective in cursing an enemy, and one of my go-to additions to a skull candle burned for that goal.

Athena, Asafoetida is one of those odd plants, like ciilantro, that seems to demonstrate the variability of human genetic make-up. Just as some people consider cilantro to taste wonderful (i do) and others say it tastes like soap, asafoetida smells disgusting to many, but it certainly reminds some people of spices, including garlic. It is indeed used in South Asian cookery, and cooking it does modify the aroma, but i perceive it as "Devil's Dung," a really nasty smell.

Wow, I wasn't aware of its use in regional cookery. Thank you for that. I just associate it with its magical properties so never considered it an actual culinary ingredient. I love learning all of these dimensions to herbs, roots and the other building blocks of hoodoo. Thank you for opening up all of these wonderful new threads for discussion and exploration.

As for cilantro, it tastes soapy to me. Genetic make-up at work again.
