LA1985,

I would shower right away, not to wait till the next day. If you had dog poop on you, you would not wait till the next day to shower would you? Same in hoodoo. Keep the oil up as well.

Hello, everyone.

I have bought some dirt from a grave to engage it in a particular work. I have reached my goal with what I meant to do with it but there is still some dirt left from what I've bought.

I. What should I do with the remaining dirt? should I take it back to grave? should I deliver it at a crossroads?

II. Assuming a scenario in which I would chose to mix the dirt with herbs, what would be the most fitting way of disposing of it, then?

III. I remember having read somewhere in the forum that there was a member that wanted to dry the dirt so that he could grind it into a thinner powder, and Miss Cat told him not to heat it in the fire (as it would be disrespectful, I think. I don't quite recall her reasoning; please enlighten me in this as well), but to dry it in the Sun, instead.

IV. Is it fitting to dust candles with graveyard dirt? I found reference to it in literature, but it seemed a bit weird.

Anyhow. Please let me know.

Please let me know.

Cordially,
Asturias

Hello, Asturias,

1) You may save it for future work or return the remainder to the grave. Unless i had a specific reason for doing so, i would not scatter it at a crossroads, causing the spirit to wander the world.

2) As above.

3) Baking graveyard dirt in an oven just drives the spirit out of it, in my experience. Natural drying does not do that, again, in my experience. I do not recall specifying drying dirt specifically under the Sun, although i have no objection to it. Drying it on the altar would be just as effective.

4) Dusting oiled candles with all kinds of powders, including sachets, mineral dusts, and dirts is common in hoodoo. Depending on the nature and aims of the work, the powders may be for love, money, protection, health, or harm. The use of a graveyard dirt appropriate to the work at hand is perfectly natural in this context and is no more "weird" than dusting a money candle with bank dust or a love candle with a marriage sachet powder.

Thank you, Miss Cat! :)

About the "drying on the Sun" bit, I might have gotten it mixed up with something else. I couldn't recall just where I thought I had read it from, in the forum, so that's that. Sorry. It might have been the forum member coming up with these two hypothesis - drying it in the Sun or heating it on a skillet -, to which you would have preferred the first. But then again, I am not certain. My memory fails me.

It seems like I always have such an endless amount of questions on graveyard dirt and graveyard work, doesn't it? In my defense, it is a complex and intricate subject.Thank you for being so generous in providing such thorough and attentive answers, each time. I am very grateful, God bless you.

You're welcome, Asturias.

If you were to take my correspondence course, i think your questions on graveyard dirt would be answered in full, as there are six lessons devoted just to that single topic.

Question about the graveyard dirt love spell: I have green paper, vandal root, and the graveyard dirt from LuckyMojo. Will this generic GD work?

Well, our graveyard dirt is not "generic," as it comes from the graves of specific people. However, the graveyard dirt love spell as i was taught it specifies the durst from the grave of someone who loved you. But try it -- perhaps that spirit will help you. You never know until you try.

I've read up that buying up graveyard dirt from a relation or passed love one will work the strongest. I live in a town with zero relations and to get to a graveyard with passed away relatives would require me to fly to another country. I do have my father's ashes though - can I use some of the ashes of a loved one in rootwork to help add a lot of power and help to any of my work?

Hi lolitabd,

It's not the same thing. Ashes are the remains of the person, whereas dirt is from their burial site. I would not disturb your father's remains.

If you cannot get any of your ancestors' graveyard dirt, then wander through a cemetery near you and see if you're attracted to a grave of someone whose spirit appears willing to help you. I have found several helpful spirits in this manner, and they were unrelated to me. Try it and see what results you get.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

I’m so disappointed in myself. Several years ago I purchased some graveyard dirt from Lucky Mojo for use in a protection working. I didn’t end up needing it as the situation resolved. I’ve been storing the unused, unopened package with my other ritual supplies (oils, herbs, and tools). These items are always kept in a quiet, private spot in my home and I give special attention and respect to them. However, my knowledge is definitely nowhere near proficient, and now I’m worried that not only have I stored the graveyard dirt in a disrespectful way, but that the energy could have contaminated the other items it’s stored with or my home. For what it’s worth, I’ve never felt a “bad” energy from the item itself, more a calm, I have your back energy.

I would prefer not to keep it in the house any longer, but I want to dispose of it in the most respectful way. It’s currently 2:00 am and I can’t sleep over this. I’m so sorry to ask, but ....

1) Can anyone recommend the best way to dispose of the dirt that wouldn’t harm or upset anyone/any spirit?

2) Are there any Lucky Mojo products I should use to clean the area or my home in general once I’ve removed the package of dirt?

3) I thought maybe hyssop?

Thank you.

n.

Dear nmm,

1) You may take it to a crossroads and blow or scatter it to the four directions, or, since you know it came from us, you may blow or scatter it in the direction that Forestville, California is from you, gently bidding the spirit goodbye. Or you could mail it to our shop. People have done this before -- you would not be the first. We will not offer a refund, but we will put it with the rest of the Forestville crew (we know who they are.)

2) A few drop of Van Van Oil in warm water or diluted Chinese Wash in warm water.

3) Hyssop is used to cleanse from sin (wrong-doing against God's commandments) and since neither you nor the spirit broke the Ten Commandments, Hyssop would not be appropriate.

Good luck!
