Ive been looking in a few spells and recipes, and I have seen this popping up several times. After some research, it turns out its made from Mercury! :shock:

I really don't want to work with that poisonous stuff, anyone know of a good substitute?

Also if you know substitutes for Yellow Precipitate and White Precipitate, too.

This is a material commonly used in Haitan Vodou, and is not used in Hoodoo. Since mercury is used to "heat things up" in Haitian Vodou, you would want to look at herbs and ingredients in Hoodoo culture that do the same thing without being poisonous.

And there are many, but exactly which ones to use depends entirely on what work you're doing.

For example, if you're looking to Hot Foot someone out of a house or get rid of an enemy, you might use Red Pepper or Black Pepper or Sulfur.

If you were looking to "heat up" a Love Drawing mojo bag, you might use a tiny bit of Ginger (it's a sweet hot spice) or some Cardamom herb. Cinnamon is also good for heating up and speeding up love and money work.

Good luck, and please do not handle mercury: it can really hurt you!

On one episode of Lucky Mojo Rootwork Radio Hour, Dr Kioni suggested adding snake skin to a love potion. I haven't been able to find snake skin locally, was wondering if snake oil is just as powerful? What is snake oil generally used for?

LuckyMojo Curio Company does not sell snake oil, so asking about it is off-topic since this forum is here to help people chose and use LuckyMojo spiritual supply's. LuckyMojo does however sell shed snake skin.

ElectroKid, you would have to ask an entomologist (scientist who studies insects). There are millions of species of insects and they live in a wide variety of habitats, and are seen due to seasonal and climate changes.

If you are asking whether insects in a graveyard are supernatural in origin, the answer is "probably not." There is probably a water source, food source, or wind current that accounts for them.

Is there any tradition in Hoodoo of using Jimson Weed (Datura Stramonium, aka Thorn Apple, Devil's Apple, Jamestown Weed, etc.) for any purpose? It seems like there would be...it's an odd-looking plant, with some colorful folk names, that grows wild in the American South and is easily identifiable, not to mention its botanical properties and history of use by various American Indian Nations...

...and yet I've only come across reference to it in relation to Hoodoo once, and then from an unreliable online source...

Anyone know anything about it???

Datura is a poison; it has been used by Native Americans in endurance / poison / psychotropic rituals. If it were to be used in hoodoo, the use would be symbolic, not in the form of feeding it to anyone.

Lucky Mojo does not grow or sell this herb. I have seen it kill grazing animals and chickens, and i strongly caution against working with this plant.

Makes for some good stew, just use it in any recipe where you would normally use a ham bone (red bean stew, or split pea= yum.)

Oh, yes...Jimson Weed sadly kills a few foolish teens seeking a cheap high every couple of years or so...no, no, no, no ingestion suggested. The thorny little seed pods are just so distinctive, and what with the name "Devil's Apple", I figured, as u said, there might be some symbolic use...>shrugs<

Still though. I think it's a cool thing. In this modern day and age newer forms of as what Cat calls it "chaos" magic? Is bound to come out! Our world changes and surely how folks do magic (changing things by force of will).

One thing's for sure though, what you're doing surely ain't hoodoo, or anything traditional.

It's looking fusion and avant garde. But you know what they say, personal is better when you're doing magic. Be creative man! Sounds weird, but who cares. In this world we need variety, and here it is.

When I say the post I thought you were making an aquarium altar or something!

"They" in this case, are most often people who never studied under a real teacher and understood the value of cultural tradition.
Creative is fine. But "creativity" is best placed after "education".
Got an aching tooth? Come to our brand new, creative and intuitively educated dentist! - I don´t think so.

The use for aquariums in Hoodoo would be to empty out the water and grow herbs in it. Or to keep fishy people busy, so that they stop "fingerpainting" spells and get themselves into trouble.

Hi,
Trying to find more specifics on the use of Snake Head Herb.
I found the listing for it in Cat's Book, Hoodoo Herb and Root magic, for a revenge spell to send back the evil that was sent to you.
Also in the Course book, in a strong jinx against an enemy spell.

But, it is listed as being used along with snake shed (skins) as well....and I am wondering if I need both?
I do not see snake head herb for sale on the Lucky Mojo site.

Is there a substitution I can use, or do you have it under another name?
I need to know for a revenge/reversal spell.
Thanks,
Lunalamia

Hi everyone. I have some questions on 3 separate animal curious

1) While I was cleaning out my horse trailers today I found a number of snake skin sheds several with what appear to be the head parts of the skin. Looks like a few of them made a nest in one (i really should clean these things out more often. Bad Blaze!) Other than what can already by found on Lucky Mojo's site I was wondering what other uses there might be for these.

2) Can a bear tooth be used in hoodoo at all? A dear friend who works at a zoo recently gifted me a few of these. (no bears were harmed!) I would think perhaps for protection or strength?

3) Horse teeth, or hair or hooves or well anything horse for that matter. I am a professional horse trainer and as a result I have a constant supply of hoof shavings and hair. I also have quite a collection of horse teeth. Before anyone yells at me, let me explain that horses like humans have baby teeth and when they reach about 3 and a half to five they lose them and are replaced with their adult teeth. I often find them in grain and water buckets and especially if they are my own horses or client horses i'm especially fond of I tend to keep them. I was wondering if I might use any of these things in hoodoo.

1) As far as what is not covered on Lucky Mojo's site i would recommend cat's book Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic. It has a fantastic listing for Snake/Snake sheds.

2) Haven't heard of a Bear's tooth being used in Hoodoo, more of a Native American/Shaman curio.

3) I have not heard of using any Horse parts in hoodoo other than the obvious Horse Shoes for luck. Perhaps someone who knows different can correct me.

Hope I've helped some. Thank you for the cool information!

Here's the link for information on snake sheds and there is also a link for the book suggested above if you scroll down.
http://www.herb-magic.com/snake-sheds.html

As a side note, I have also read that snake skin is used in some workings because it is said to have transformative power, because the snake sheds its skin to make room for new skin, sort of a rebirth-renewal type thing. I don't know if that is how it is used in traditional hoodoo, but I have learned that most herbs and curios are versatile and can be used in different types of workings.

Human baby teeth are sometimes used in protective work for children. But then children start losing -- or rather replacing -- their baby teeth long before adulthood. I don't know if the analogy would work very well for horses. I must say I've never heard of the use of horse teeth in hoodoo.

Color and type of flower has significance in spell work. Pink is symbolic and used for attraction and romance type work. Roses (http://herb-magic.com/rose-petals.html) are traditional used as a symbol of love, romance and sexual attraction. Lavender (http://herb-magic.com/lavender.html) is used to draw good luck in love from members of the same sex.

I don't know of any magical uses for impatiens -- the name of which means "impatient," which could be a two-edged sword in your love work.

Magical uses are sometimes suggested by common names of plants; websurfing brought up patience plant, busy lizzy, jewelweed, touch-me-not -- conflicting, not terribly encouraging.

The classic flowers for blessing love work are: rose, poppy (to pleasantly confuse your target and make resistance seem pointless), pansy (also known as Heart's Ease), violet (especially the heart-shaped leaf, in reconciliation work).

Hope this helps,

It;s used in Mexican folk magic. It's not an old traditional hoodoo plant, sorry. Not every herb, root, or mineral is used in hoodoo, and some with long years of tradition behind them in another culture just are not used in conjure at all.

I live in a condo complex, with large (common area) lawn. For the last week or so, I've noticed some very large mushrooms growing outside my unit--and no one else's. I've noticed a few tiny mushrooms outside some units, but mine is the only one with the big one (3-6 inches.)

Is this just coincidence or does it mean something? I've done a bit of research, but haven't been able to find any answers. Thanks for your help.

Unless someone else has identified significance, I find mushrooms growing especially after heavy winds and rains that seem to carry the seedlings to various locations. ...although mushrooms are considered lucky in some parts of the world. I found a post of Lucky Mojo that discusses a certain type of mushroom (http://www.luckymojo.com/chimneysweep.html)

Mushrooms are the fruits of large plants that live underground. When ground-warmth and moisture are right, the plants fruit, making mushrooms above the ground.

If you are referring to the Black Cat Caul cited earlier in this thread -- well, it would give the kitten second sight to be born with a caul, but not you -- the second sight belongs to the one who is born in a caul. It might protect from drowning, however, for possession of a human caul is said to protect from death at sea -- so why not a cat's caul?

Not everything has a use in hoodoo, and something not native to the part of the world hoodoo came from? Of course that won't have a use.

This forum was created to help people chose and use Lucky Mojo spiritual supplies. Its not a general occult or folk magic discussion board.

But, to quickly answer your question, Cinnamon has a different magical usage than Ginger. You can learn more about them at our Herb-Magic web site:

Dates (the fruit, not the activity) are not mentioned in Hoodoo Herb and Root magic, but I am seeing them crop up as a sweetening ingredient in other traditions such as middle eastern-based work.

Dates are used in some Middle Eastern practices, especially those derived from Arabia and North Africa. They are often used as offerings, in love spells, and other rites. That said, I do not know any uses in African American Conjure.

Hi Mrs Cath:

It's been a while since I have spoken to you. Hope you are well.

I have a problem at work. Another co-worker has been putting salt mackerel in my patient's laundry. Everything is smelling so fishy -- her beddings, clothes, rags, towels, bedpad, etc. My patient is bed-ridden so she is stuck there.

There is also some in my laundry at my house too.

Could you please tell me the reason why the other co-worker is doing this and what can I do about it.

Thanks for your advice.

Hi Wilma:

I have never heard of the use of salt mackerel in hoodoo. If she's doing this on purpose (so she didn't accidentally drop her lunch into the laundry bin, for example), it could be for control or something. Have you mentioned this to your manager? I'm a nurse myself so that just shocks me, a patient all bedridden being exposed to something that smells so bad :(

You may want to get a ten minute reading from an AIRR reader to find out if this coworker is trying to fix or curse the patient and you.

Good luck,

I agree with the above work and worked as a cna in nursing homes, I for one would go to the DON or the admin, that is something a patient espically one who is bedridden and can't speak for themselves when needed, if it's something to help thats one thing but what patient who has to live in bed really wants to smell fishy?

In the book HHRM it talks about Southernwood herb, but I was unable to find it on the store site. Do you sale this herb?

No, we do not carry that herb. We do carry both Wormwood and Mugwort, which are closely related to Southernwood and are used in similar ways.

I've seen dirt dauber nest and wasp dirt nest used synonymously here and wondered if it is the same as a regular ordinary wasp nest. I dont think so but wanted to clarify and see how and if an ordinary wasp nest is used in hoodoo. Thanks

Its not. There are many, many different kinds of wasp, and many kinds of flying insect erroneously called a wasp, within the USA. What most would call a regular wasp nest is generally made by a paper wasp, these are very aggressive insects. Dirt daubers, or mud daubers make a nest out of, wait for it, Dirt or Mud! The insect itself is very peaceful, you near have to sit on one to get it to sting you, and they are home body's, one of the two mated pairs, usually the male, always stays at the nest to watch over the larva while the other member fly's off to gather food.

I'm sure you can see from the descriptions that the two species, and there nests have very different uses in magic.

Have any friends in Florida? I know they're quite abundant there. If I still lived back there, I'd be happy to send you some. Unfortunately, I moved to Wiscaaaaahnsin.

Is anyone familiar with this phrase. My grandfathers grandfather told him to write it on carbon paper and wrap it in foil. Help if anyone is familiar with this term.

Whatever it is, I doubt that it has anything to do with hoodoo.

It would sure help to know the language of your grandfather's culture, for there is no "universal language" on Earth.

For instance:

Tulsa is the name of a city in Oklahoma that was settled by the Native Americans who were forcibly removed there by President Andrew Jackson in the 1830s under the Indian Removal Act. Creek medicine men planted ashes from their old home at the new site; the name refers to a town in what is now Alabama that was known to the American invaders as Tallasi, Tallase, Talise, Tullahasse, or Tallahasse, meaning Old Town. Early spellings of the Oklahoma town by Anglo-Americans included Tulsee and Tulsey Town.

Tulsi is the Hindi name for Basil herb.

Atobi in Japanese means "grooves in a sword carved by someone other than the original sword smith."

Atobi is a proper male name among the Akan people of Ghana, and it means "evil."

Atobi means "worn out, tired, fatigued, or wan" in Somali.

Atobi is the name of a tribe of people of the Solomon Islands in an area known as Latea.

Is there a link to purchase gunpowder on the LM website? I can't seem to find a direct link for it already made/mixed.

If not, then would it be best to get the 3 ingredients (charcoal, saltpeter & sulphur) and mix them all in equal 1/3 parts?

(here's individual item numbers for those who are also looking to mix it up, if need be):

Charcoal: ALT-CHA-D10P

Saltpeter: MIN-SAL-PETE

Sulphur: MIN-SUL-POWD

We do not sell gunpowder. We do not give out recipes for gunpowder. We do sell some ingredients that are included in gunpowder (and are also used for making many other things), but the making of gunpowder is too dangerous for us to describe to customers whose experience levels with chemical reactions and whose mental stability as well may vary a great deal.

Does LM carry squill root? I wanted to make a money jar to put on my altar, but I can't find the squill root in the catalog. Does this go by another name?

I didn't see it in the catalog either and HHRM doesn't offer an alternate name. You might try to call the shop during business hours and ask if it's available. For as extensive as their herb catalogue is there are some herbs and roots which are either difficult to obtain or raise, rare, endangered or otherwise unavailable.
