Hello, royal_PITA,

I certainly wouldn't recommend a Lucky Mojo product that didn't exist! I know most of their products by heart

Here it is!

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that. I just meant I couldn't find anything like that and thought maybe you were talking about several herbs. And thank you!!!

Hello All!

I have a question, I'd like to make oils for healing and I was wondering how do you charge the herbs? I have heard from someone a little recently and they said in order for the oil(s) to work that you need to charge up the herbs or you will just have oil and herbs.

HoodooBeginner --

You seem to have African American folk magic (hoodoo, conjure, rootwork) seriously confused with Neo-Pagan Wiccan or Traditional Witchcraft practices.

We do not "charge" anything (except, perhaps, our credit cards). LOL!

I suggest that before you begin dabbling in hoodoo oil-making, you actually learn what hoodoo is, what its basic traditional methodologies are, where it came from, and how we, practitioners of this form of work, treat and deal with the making of spiritual supplies.

Here are some links that may help you:

Hoodoo in Theory and Practice Table of Contents
http://luckymojo.com/hoodoo.html

Basic Understanding of Traditional African American Hoodoo
basic-understanding-of-traditional-african-american-hoodoo-t19287.html

Seriously speaking, and with no intent to insult you, a "beginner" should not be making oils without an understanding of the way we work. Your question implies a complete lack of understanding -- or else a reliance on self-promoting internet sources that have no connection to Black American culture and have falsely appropriated the term "hoodoo" to describe their own way of compounding oils according to Neo-Pagan principles.

Stick around and read some of the real stuff here and at the Lucky Mojo web site.

Good luck.

Just a reminder --

The new 8th edition of "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic" is now available. Available since 2002, with 24,000 copies in print, and no change in price.

* 224 pages, available in trade paperback softcover ($14.95) or limited edition clothbound hardcover ($39.95).

* 500 herbs, roots, minerals, and rare zoological curios, with taxonomic ("Latin") names for proper identification.

* 750 traditional spells, tricks, and magical recipes. These are complete, easy-to-use, and highly practical, designed for readers who want to go beyond the "romance" or symbolism of herb magic and actually mix up and make their own potions, dressing oils, bath crystals, incenses, floor washes, and mojo bags. If you grow or gather herbs, this book will teach you exactly how to use them.

* 50 black and white line illustrations of common magical herbs and roots of North America.

* 6 handy charts in which dozens of conditions -- such as love-drawing or protection -- are listed and the herbs for each condition are given in alphabetical order. This saves time when looking for ways to use herbs that are available -- and you can use these charts to find substitutions, if necessary.

* Cross-referencing: Every herb is accompanied by at least one spell. End-of-entry cross-references make it easy to find other spells in which the herb is used -- no flipping back to an index: Cross-references are right in the entry itself.

* Bibliography: Authentic recipes are drawn from first-hand experience and 100 years of solid folkloric research.

Herb gathering Q

Unread postby Dhat+hat » Sat Oct 29, 2016 8:13 am

Hi Catherine, et al,

I'm wondering about the herb source for LM products.

In search of herbs gathered left hand, no steel, offering of gratitude to Earth when gathered.

Dear Dhat+hat --

We do not belong to a magical or religious tradition that encourages left-handedness, forbids steel implements, or creates a system of offerings of gratitude to the earth.

Of course some folks among us may be left-handed, and some herbs are plucked by hand instead of with clippers, and some people may thank the plants or leave offerings, but there is no institutionalized tradition of doing so in African American folk magic

Please read more about the African American hoodoo tradition here:

Good luck.

Hi,
How does one call or pray on the spirit for a herb to help in spells?
Once I get a herb out of a packet, I completely understand my intentions with it but fumble with words when trying to ask or thank the herb for assistance.
I know it's important to do it especially if the herb hasn't been used for a while but can someone give me an example, suggestion or share how they do it?

I'm sorry if this has already been discussed - I wasn't able to find it.

Anyway just curious where you store your herbs and oils? My supply is starting to get a little out of hand and while I keep the herbs I cook with in the kitchen, I tend to keep the ones that are only used for rootwork on my altar in a plastic container thing (I think it's actually a craft storage thing) but that is now overflowing plus doesn't fit my tools, books, bottles for oils and whatnot. Just curious what everyone else uses. I'd kind of like something that holds my tools, oil bottles, and herbs all in one but this altar is in my bedroom (actually it's my fireplace - and it was chosen for the obvious reason of being fireproof) so I would rather not have a bunch of tables and stuff laying about if possible. It's starting to look really cluttered in there. My books I can store in my closet on the bookshelf so that's NBD.

Hello loyal_stranger,

You don't want to keep your Lucky Mojo oils or herbs near heat or in direct sunlight, but other than that, you can do whatever works for you. My altar is a vintage vanity table, and I keep my oils and herbs in the drawers. Maybe set up a small bookcase devoted to your magical tools?
Thank you, St. Michael, St. Expedite and La Santisima Muerte!

Best herbs to use to promote friendship / work relationship / partnership (non-romantic) with a specific person? :)

Thank you and blessings

Hello lalyil,
I would recommend getting miss cat's book Hoodoo Herb and root magic (http://www.luckymojo.com/hoodooherbmagic.html) for a good discussion of the uses of herbs. I personally have used lavander an sugar for friendships. But I am sure there are plenty of other ways to work for that.

Peace~

I organized all my herbs and mixed them with my oils and want to mix them in with soy wax and make small jar candles from them, question though...

Would too many herbs/thick herb mix to wax ratio make them hard to burn? Are there any herbs that I shouldn't leave in a candle because if it burns it'd be a disaster?

Just trying to get out all the kinks before I do this officially and waste all my herbs and oils.

Hello, Shutter ,

You know, if this is your first time, experiment first with a little. It's difficult to have perfection the very first time.

I prefer finely grinding the herbs. And, yes, too many herbs (with a 50/50 ratio) will most likely be a flop (or a fire).

You would need a lot less herbs than that

Experiment first. See what happens in a tea light container.

Wishing you the best

Take care

Miss Aida or anyone else if you have any tips, let them fly. The sooner I find out the best way to do this the sooner I can make a ton and buy more oils and herbs from LM haha, so intensive for everybody!
