This thread is fascinating. I am an avid gardener and have just finished putting in a bunch of sacred landscaping. I'm always looking for new things to plant. Of course the growing season is winding down here in New England, so this project will have to wait until spring.

Hi Everyone,

I was given the directions on making a sweet bath from a Houngan and the recipe calls for Saca Saca. I was told if I am not able to find this that I can substitute rosemary.

Is anyone familiar with this herb and have any idea who sells this in authentic form?

Have a wonderful weekend.

This forum is for LuckyMojo products, not general herbal/folk magic questions. We can't answer your questions about substituting one herb for another out side of the hoodoo tradition. This is the list of all the herbs LuckyMojo sellshttp://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatherbs.html. Ask the person that told you the bath maybe?

Hello Discordia,

I am aware of that. However I do know that herbs can have numerous names from different cultures. In this case I found out that Saka Saka is Yucca which Cat does talk about in her book. Thanks for the help though.

I have a Black cat bone that I was given by a worker in the South. It's a long bone from the leg. It has been fixed. Would it detract from its usefulness to cut it into several smaller pieces for use in mojo bags or other purposes, or must it be kept intact?

This is a forum for LuckyMojo products, not a general hoodoo or folk magic forum and so I believe your question is out side of this forums scope as it has nothing to do with LuckyMojo spiritual supply's.

As HD pointed out, its kind of out of the purview of the forum. I would ask the worker who gave it to you what they recommend.

take care,

Is there a method or spell to verify if a cat bone is actually a black cat bone?

and as for using it, how to bring back a lover, other than carrying it as a mojo?

can i rub the appropriate oil on it and can i place it beside my honey jar?

can i also place it with my candle spell?

Um, well first, LuckyMojo doesn't sell black cat bones\. The ones you can buy through disreputable occult shops are usually chicken bones, really they are just a scam to rope in money, if you want a real black cat bone you have to get it yourself, not a pleasant thing nor something I advocate anyone doing for any reason.

Sorry but this forum is for LuckyMojo products, not general hoodoo questions. But to try and give you some help High John comes from a kind of morning glory and you might be able to get a green house to order the plant or seeds for you. As long as you have the Latin name for it.

HD is right, we cannot advise you on how to order seeds and plants. However, I have found that in looking for hoodoo plants and herbs knowing the latin binomials really helps. You can browse any of these titles from lucky mojo and they will help you in your ordering, procuring, and identifying: http://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatbooks.html#botany

good luck,

It is unlikely that you could get a black cat bone from a reputable dealer; even if you could, traditionally the cat would have to die a horrible death. Not only would it be immoral and illegal (animal cruelty), but there would be no guarantee that the cat was black or it was killed in the (extremely cruel) traditional manner.

In the unlikely circumstance that you actually have a black cat bone from a cat killed in the traditional manner, I think you should give it a decent burial with catnip. Ask the poor creature's forgiveness for the cruelty of humans and make a donation to an animal shelter.

As a side note,a bone from a black cat that died natural isnt special at all. Every single mention of getting a black cat bone makes it clear that the cats painful and horrible death is a key part of the bones power. So unless you know for a fact that they cat was boiled alive (either in a cemetery or at a crossroads depending on who you ask) it isn't worth anything. If you research a bit yes you might be able to identify it as a cat bone but you won't be able to tell if it was from a black cat or if it was gotten in the traditional way. If and that;s a big if it is a real black cat bone and if it was gotten in the "right" way, no simply setting it next to a honey jar wouldn't do much in my option.

Well, uh. (Forgive me animal lovers and workers here who are more of the white-end of the spectrum. I'm mostly black.)

Want the black cat bone? Go get it alive. Get a massive vat. Chuck cat into vat, half filled with water. You don't want to boil a drowned cat. Seal vat shut with holes for air and excess liquid to get out. Light it up.

Be prepared to be scarred for life psychologically and emotionally for doing it.

Hi all, sorry I'm not sure whether I am posting this in the right place... Please let me know if not.

I am very much a newbie to hoodoo (couple of months practice only) and I am seeing some weird things happening just in the past 2 weeks, around insects and spiders. I'll always look for a rational explanation before an esoteric one, so at first when I started seeing a lot more insects and spiders around than usual, I put it down to the start of the hot weather, but now things are getting odd..

A few examples:
1. As I settled down to start on my ongoing spellwork one evening, I felt like someone was watching me (but couldn't be). I looked over my shoulder and a big silvery spider was sitting on the wall just over my shoulder appearing to watch what I was doing. :? Now I know some people say you shouldn't kill spiders, but I wasn't leaving that there! So yes I squished it, apologising out loud as I did, and heard myself say (didn't intend to) "If that was meant to be a good sign, sorry! But please... try a butterfly!!"

2. Couple of days after that I was driving to work, and had to drive right through an enormous swarm of bees right across the road! 2 of them hitched a ride on the windshield for about 15 mins, when I came to a 2nd swarm even bigger, and those 2 flew off into it. What the? :shock:

3. Last night my kids started screaming in the hallway, and I came around the corner to see a medium sized black spider lying on the ground with dozens of baby spiders flowing out of it. The mama spider appeared to be dead or dying (the kids didn't touch it, they'd just found it there). Once again, I killed them - sorry, but no way am I having them infest the house.

These are just the weirder examples... Can anyone suggest what's going on?

For what it's worth, the bees didn't unsettle me at all - it actually felt like a nice thing, if bizarre. The spiders though are making me uneasy. I have searched on LM, and found some interesting info, but still not sure how to take this.

Anyone who can help, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.

I'm sorry but this forum is to help people chose and use LuckyMojo products. Its not a general occult or folk magic discussion board. I can however recommend that you see a reader at the AIRR, many of them are well versed in omens and portents and should be able to divine what it all means.

Hello, after searching the herb magic website and the lucky mojo website I do not see anything about the use of acorns in hoodoo.
I keep being drawn to acorns and I am sure their must be a use but I am stuck to find one. A friend of mine from AIRR suggested jar spells. Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas?

iv used them in love spells and frienship spells, this was a gypsie spell though, not hoodoo. what part of them draws you to them? that might indicate how to use them, look at other cultures associated with them which are also part of hoodoo to see how to use them in spells.

I'm fairly new to hoodoo (more of a folk magick:Hex gal), but it stands to reason that pretty much everywhere oak trees grow, the magickal people of the culture revere both the oak and the acorn. In the Appalachias where there is a large Germanic influence acorns are regarded as protective, particularly against lightning -- acorns are strung and hung in windows and barns. Native Americans looked to the oak and the acorn for many staples, not the least of which was acorn flour. So you could associate it also with abundance. There is an old saying in So. West Virginia that you shouldn't "let the oak catch you" looking at the acorns. Even in these times, as disconnected as most people are from nature, I will still hear people discussing the acorn crop (known as "mast") because it plays such a large role in the well-being of wildlife.

To point: While I couldn't find any directly related hoodoo information regarding acorns, they obviously call to you and are rich in magick for many. Why not take it upon yourself to work the acorns into your altar or mojo? You can attempt to incorporate them into a Hoodoo type working by annointing your acorns with the oil that would correspond to your purpose. Personally, I would think they would be very appropriate for situations where strength and steadfastness are needed. They also tie in (for me) with veneration of my ancestors, perhaps due to my heritage. I gather some each year from the 4 different kinds of oak I have on my property and give them a place of honor in a wooden bowl on my hearth/home altar on the bar that divides my living room and kitchen. Like you, I am drawn to them...how could they be anything BUT magick? There's an OAK tree in there!

The use of acorns in magic and folklore is a European thing that never really got carried over into hoodoo. Nutmegs, which are imported, are used, as are Buckeye nuts, which are native ... but i have never heard an old time root doctor tell me to use an acorn.

Just because a plant exists, that doesn't mean that we are entitled to manufacture a use for it in hoodoo. If you want to learn about Acorns in magic, study the beliefs of a culture that does use Acorns in magic.

To Copperfox: You will not get far in this world or on this forum if you think you can "hoodoo it up" or give others advice to "hoodoo it up." That is rank bullshit. It is disrespectful to African American culture and history. It is Pat Boone singing Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti." On the other hand, if Acorns truly do have magical properties in your culture, then by all means respectfully use them as they would be used in your culture, whatever that is.

To Cat and All --

No disrespect was intended by my glib use of the phrase "hoodoo it up" -- I meant only to imply that the known annointing oils and such could be applied to incorporate the acorn into a hoodoo based practice if that was what one wished. I am a pragmatic person and seek results through many channels but certainly would never intentionally disrespect any person's culture or traditions -- especially not one I am in such awe of.
I do apologize if I offended anyone or gave an otherwise negative impression. In the future, I will be far more careful in my wording, as it is very easy for written correspondence to convey a tone not intended by the writer.

Humble apologies from red-cheeked me! :oops:

I went back and edited the offending post so that my intention would be clear to all that I truly mean no disrespect and am here as someone new to this tradition with an ardent desire to learn and make use of this amazing magickal system. As an aside, when I am doing my own work I often talk to myself and will often say "Well I hexed up the homeplace nice n' tight" or such after a warding -- I thought nothing of applying a similar wording and again apologize if it appeared irreverent. Like a foreigner in a new country I am bound to breech etiquette on occasion and do not mind having my faux pas pointed out to me so that I may apologize and not make the same mistake again.


In closing, allow me to say I am pleased and honored to be here and that I truly hope to never hear Pat Boone sing "Tutti Frutti." Thanks for the educational ranking, Cat.

Thank you Cat, I was wondering and it is always good to hear if anyone else has read or heard/learned anything. For the time being I will just thank the earth for an interesting thing as the acorn. Possibly some crafts to enjoy around the house would satisfy my being drawn to them. Thanks for your input I appreciate it.

There is a bat nut that is used in protection work.

But it would really help to know what the spell is for.

That being said it could very well literally mean a bat's eye - so your best bet would be to figure out what energy that curio was bringing to the work so you can sub in something with the same purpose/energy.

Ah - so it's probably taking advantage of the bat's eye sight at night (which is a bit of a fallacy since bats use echolocation and not their eyes to see in the dark) to help you identify and avoid danger.

Unless you have a source for bats eyes, then I would substitute something that has the same general effect. So you'll have to get creative, or simply just use another protective ingredient to keep the number of ingredients the same.

You could also have a reading with an AIRR worker and get them to make up a mojo or spell kit that has the same intended result. But you'll have the assurance of knowing that what they'll put together for you will be effective, rather than going by guesswork if you're new to the work and unfamiliar with all the various herbs and curios that can be used in rootwork.

I know that for the most part hoodoo is a Southern practice and that the American South isn't know for it's abundance of snow. However with all the excess precipitation that the Northeast has been getting lately, I cannot help but wonder if there is any snow lore in hoodoo. I am on the broke side lately, so I was wondering if snow would be good for banishing negativity(such as financial troubles and/or general bad luck) or road opening type of work. I imagine it as a "As this snow melts, so do my troubles" type of thing.

Has anyone done any snow work to banish negativity or draw opportunity to themselves?
I'd love to read about everyone's experience and maybe learn a trick or two.

I apologize if this is in the wrong spot, but I did not know what other section of the forum would be appropriate.

Well, personally i have never heard of snow and conjure having any significance in hoodoo. I would think that it could be used to freeze someone. But I would be cautious to use snow as a use for banishing negative or to do road opening work because if you are in a spot of the country where you are in a terrible blizzard or it snows for days straight or it snows one day and then it is sunny then it snows again...then you would hardly have an open road. Thats just the idea that I had. If you are on the broke side do a road opener, or try a fast luck spell for some easy money. Then back it up with some Money stay with me work. Perhaps you are going to have to get a second job if possible and you can use a spell for that.

I understand your thinking with the snow, but do not let the snow hold you back from getting what you might need. Ooh and also make sure you cleanse yourself FIRST. That is a good start to getting some of the bad luck coming your way.

I've heard of melting snow for natural water, but that's it. Of course, conjure is all about being creative - so play around and see what manifests!

Snow is actually used as a source of "live water." You can melt the snow and use it in various baths and cleansings and it works wonderfully. Its just like going and finding a magical well, or other source of live water. Incorporate it in your work and bathe in the fresh, clean water, and wash away all the negativity.

I live in the northeast and while snow is not spoken of in hoodoo I use it in my practice. For example take the snow from their foot track the same way you would dirt and use it for the same things. Snow can be bought from a grave the way dirt can, and while it is not as powerful it does have strength.

I've never heard of it being used in rootwork, not every plant is. Ask the plant what it will do for you.

Wistaria (the proper spelling, as it was named after a botanist named Mr. Wistar) is not generally used as a plant, but Wistaria fragrance oil has some currency as being of use for luck, home-blessing, and business success. Its use dates back to the early 20th century.

If it is the same name that we use to describe a certain plant with a blue rain of flowers it is quite toxic.

Hello every one! I'm new to the board and had a question. I found an earlier/similar post but it didn't answer what exactly I was looking for. Any input would be appreciated!

I have a small garden space and wanted to plant herbs/plants that would be called for commonly. Is there is a list of traditional magical garden plants where could I find it? Any recommendations?

My ideal would be to grow this summer and dry what i didn't use etc. I just don't know the kinds of things people want to keep on hand.

I'm a bit away from studying full time at this point. I'm reading a bunch and learning a lot but its time to put together a garden and i figure maybe by the time I've picked up a few things it'll all be grown. I live in Washington state btw, but i can grow just about anything.

Thank you!

Buy a copy of my book "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic."

BOO-GRI-HHHC Hoodoo Herb & Root Magic, Hardcover by cat yronwode $39.95

BOO-GRI-HHSC Hoodoo Herb & Root Magic, Paperback by cat yronwode $14.95

There are 500 herbs and roots listed in this book. Check through the listings and see the magical uses of each herb and then determine whether that herb will grow in your climate and region. If it will, and it is appropriate for the kinds of conjure work you intend to practice, plant it and tend it, then harvest and dry it.

Good luck.

So wait, does that mean any Lucky Mojo brand Adam and Eve product (oil / candle / sachet / etc) doesn't contain the real herb? Is it just then crafted for the same effect / purpose?

Correct. We do not make our Adam and Even Oil with ILLEGAL and ENDANGERED SPECIES roots in them.

About 15 years ago, i stopped making Adam and Eve Oil at all, figuring that since i could not get the roots, no one would want the formula. However, there were a lot of protests from customers -- they liked the smell of the Oil -- its fragrance has never been related to the roots, which have almost no scent -- so i bought it back about 10 years ago, with selected love herbs in the oil, just because people liked that particular blend of love-drawing essential oils, even without the Adam and Eve orchid roots included. That is why, on the "Hoodoo in Theory and Practice" page about Adam and Eve spiritual supplies it clearly states, at the top of the page:

http://www.luckymojo.com/adamandeve.html

"Adam and Eve is a name for lovers almost as old as time itself. Originally based on the inclusion of a rare (and now endangered species) root, called "Eve and Adam Root," this traditional formula has been updated to make is ecologically safe, while still invoking the primal attraction of Creation's first and most Divinely mated male and female."

and

"Like the rest of the Lucky Mojo line, these products contain genuine reputed love-drawing and nature-enhancing herbs and herbal essential oils, not synthetic fragrances. The ingredients in Adam and Eve carefully avoid inclusion of the endangered Eve an Adam orchid root, but do include careful botanical substitutions such as Balm of Gilead Buds, plus other herbs and essences. Lucky Mojo labels are adapted from vintage packaging as traditional as the ingredients themselves -- and what could be more traditional than a label derived from a paining by the 15th century artist Albrecht Durer?"

And on the Lucky Mojo Anointing Oils catalogue page at

http://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatoils.html#hoodoo

it says of Adam and Eve Oil: "A primal scent compounded for love-drawing and finding one's perfect mate."

That is, we sell this as a scent-oil and do not misrepresent it as containing the endangered-species roots.

We are completely and proudly up-front and open about this and all you have to do is read our product literature to understand why we do not sell ecologically unsustainable botanical goods, why we do not sell botanical fakes, and why we do not falsely advertise our goods as containing endangered species products when they do not conatin them.

I was reading about Adam & Eve root in my copy of Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic, and I am particularly interested in the charm for getting a proposal of marriage. Since the actual Adam & Eve roots are not available what should I use instead?

It's not really a matter of using something else instead, you'll just need to work a different marriage conjure.

It is spring in the midwest and I have collected four large bags of dog doo from my yard. Ideas on what I can do with these? There is a couple I would love to see broken up. As well as man I would like to see suffer a bit (he is part of the couple).

I also have several jugs of urine in my garage (my spouse drives truck). Ideas for those?

Thank you for any input.

Well, you could add the poo to one of LM's break up bottles if you wanted. You could make a crossing-type bottle with LM crossing powder and other herbs/curios meant for causing mischief and add the poo to that too if you wanted.

Just wondering...why do you keep the jugs of urine from your spouses' trucking?
