High John the Conqueror and his two brothers

Hoodoo originates from the magical practices of the Congolese slaves that were abducted and brought to America. While the original tribal religious practices were subjugated by the slave masters and the slaves were forced to convert to Christianity, the original magical practices were preserved and adjusted for the flora and fauna of the new world.

Back in Africa, the rootworkers and conjurers there used one root that conferred upon its bearer strength, prowess, luck and fertility. This root was even edible, and often used in magical talismans and workings. This root doesn't grow in the temperate climate of the United States, so they sought out the magical knowledge and wisdom of the local Native Americans for similar local herbs. The Native Americans taught the slaves that there were three locally growing roots that together had the power they were looking for. These were: High John the C0nqueror, Little John to Chew and Dixie John (Southern John - if the name Dixie offends you).

High John the Conqueror
A man ain't a man without a High John in his hand! - Dr. E.

High John the Conqueror (ipomoea jalapa), is the whole root from a beautiful vine that grows extensively in the south. It is also sometimes called Jalap or High John. It confers virility, strength, the power to overcome obstacles, good luck, love, and success on whoever carries it. It is not edible, as it is an extremely powerful laxative, so it is never taken internally. It is mainly included either in mojo bags, in jack balls and an infusion can be made into an oil that is then used to dress candles, or feed mojo bags. High John the Conqueror is included in blends like Success and Eloquence, where it lends a person the ability to overcome any situation and succeed. You can also use High John the Conqueror Oil in candle spells or to feed mojo bags for the same reasons.

Little John to Chew
Sometimes called "Court Case Root", Little John to Chew is mainly used for success in legal proceedings, to get the court to rule in your favor. Little John to Chew, is edible, and is frequently used in Southeastern Asian cuisine where it is known by its culinary name, Galangal. It has a piney-gingery flavor. One of the most common ways to use Little John to Chew is to take a sliver of the root and boil it in sugar water to get it nice and soft - letting it sit overnight in the syrup. The next day, take the sliver of root with you to your appearance in court, and chew it up as you are entering the court house. Then, without drawing too much attention, spit the chewed up root on the floor of the courtroom to get the judge to rule in your favor. Little John to Chew is included in Court Case Powder and Court Case Oil to help you win over the judge and jury.

Dixie John (Southern John)
This root is actually from a trillium plant that grows extensively in the south. It is non-edible, and usually used in whole form. Dixie John grants the user sexual prowess and helps solidify marriages, fireing them up with passion. It also grants the rootworker luck in love relationships, and the ability to dominate your spouse. An easy way to use Dixie John is put a whole root in a muslin bag and toss it into the washing machine with the sheets from your bed. You will have incredible passionate sex on those sheets from then onward! Dixie John is included in blends like Love me NOW! Powder and Love's Fire Oil to make it your relationship hot and sexy!

The Three Johns Jackball
This jackball is a pocket piece that resembles the little red rubber ball used when playing jacks (the kid's game). It is carried for success, power, mastery and good luck in money, gambling, business, love and a strong sexual nature. It includes bits of all three "john" roots (essentially recreating the original root's powers from Africa), with a bit of the individual's personal concerns inside, all wrapped up with red thread. A jackball is oten carried inside of a red flannel bag just for safe-keeping. It can even be used as a pendulum for divination in determining the best outcome to a situation.

Hot Foot Spells with a KICK!

Hot footing is one of the more benign ways of getting rid of someone. It's basically a "get away from here" spell - no ill wishes intended. The classic method of getting rid of someone is just to sprinkle some Hot Foot Powder where they'll walk over it, thus affecting them "through the feet" - causing them to hot foot it out of town.

I've come up with some new, inventive and different approaches to hot foot someone out of your life, and decided to share some of them here.

Fire Under Your Feet, Haunt in your Home
This is a spell performed when you have a noisy neighbor or someone living in close proximity to you that you really need to get rid of. It effectively burns a fire under their feet, and at the same time haunts their home so that they NEED to get out of where they are.

Take a red glass-encased candle, dress it with GTFO! Oil and a generous pinch of Hot Foot Powder, as well as a pinch of Graveyard Dirt. As you add in the Graveyard Dirt, pray to the spirit that it belongs to and instruct then to haunt that person's mind, their dreams and their home. Instruct them to make it miserable to live there, to open and close doors and cabinets, make scary noises, the whole deal.

Next lay out a "crossroads" of Graveyard Dirt on your surface. Add arrow heads to the four ends of the crossroads and instruct that same spirit to drive those individuals (calling them by name) far away from here. I like to say "they can be happy anywhere, but they can't be happy here!" Instruct the spirit to continue to haunt them and that house UNTIL THEY LEAVE, at which point he is to stop harassing them and leave them in peace.

Tap the candle three times on your counter to seal in the energy, set it in the center of the crossroads and burn it all the way down. Interpret the results of the candle's burn as a sign to the success of the spell.

Hot Foot + Shut Up Spell
This little spell not only gets the person out of your life but compels them to stop their gossiping hateful ways. I affectionately call it the STFU/GTFO spell since it uses both products.

Get a black figural candle of the appropriate gender to correspond with the intended target. Carve their name into the back of the candle with a coffin nail. Using the same nail, carve out the mouth of the candle so that you can put things in it. Now, dress the candle with STFU! Oil and GTFO! Oil, rubbing the oil onto the candle by stroking away from you.

Next, stuff the mouth of the candle with STFU! Powder. As you do this, call the target by name and command them to shut the hell up, stop their gossip, and that the bitter taste of their evil words will fill their mouth. Now wind black thread around the candle's mouth like a gag, and as you do so state "(Target's Name) I gag you and shut you the hell up! Never again will you utter a single word about me or against me. Taste the bitterness of your hateful words and learn from your mistakes!"

Now, lay out a crossroads of Hot Foot Powder on your surface with arrow points at the ends of the croassroad lines. Stand the candle up in the center of the crossroads and add a bit more powder on top of the candle's feet. Burn the candle all the way down. Interpret the behavior of the candle's burning pattern and any wax drippings.

Finally gather together all of the remnants from the spell and go to the nearest river that runs out of town. Toss that mess into the river over your left shoulder saying "Just as this river runs out of town, so shall you run run run out of my life forever, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, AMEN!" Walk away and don't look back.

These spells work effectively to get rid of troublesome people without directly hurting them. At most they will feel the effects of their own actions and learn from their mistakes. At worst, they will just move away and keep up their obnoxious behaviors, but far away from you.

Attraction Spells for Love and Money

Two of the most important things for us in life are love and money. Both of them lend us a feeling of stability and in many ways we define our level of happiness according to how well we are doing financially, and whether or not we have love in our lives.

One of my earliest spiritual teachers once told me that the trick to getting money or love in life is to stop running after it, and instead, to become MAGNETIC - and to draw it to you through your own confidence and happiness. This little spiritual secret led to come up with several "Attraction Spells" - either for love or for money.

Attraction Spell to Draw Money
One of the interesting things about money is that your attitude can do everything to control whether you have it or don't. In many ways, money is energy - a symbol - and simply tweaking your attitude about that energy can redirect it to come to you over and over again. This spell works off of this concept.

First get your hands on a lodestone (a naturally occurring magnet). Wash it in whiskey to baptize it and then give it a name. Talk to it and tell it that it is going to work tirelessly to draw money into your life. Dress this lodestone with some Attraction Oil - so that it will draw money to your life.

Every night, take whatever spare cash you have out of your wallet and place it under the lodestone. Feed the lodestone with a pinch of magnetic sand and tell it to get more cash - explaining that it is sitting upon a pile of it. Leave your spare cash there for 24 hours at least.

Once the money has lived under that lodestone for a day, it has become magnetically charged and trained to seek out more money and attract it to you. You can then take it and spend it knowing that those bills are going out into the world and fetching more to return to you. Never leave the lodestone without some cash under it. I always leave a $100 bill under my lodestone no matter what. It never goes away. It's there to remind my lodestone of what it needs to go get for me at all times.

Attraction Spell to Draw Customers
Consistently-paying good customers are any business owner's dream come true. One of the best ways to get customers to keep coming back to your store is to magically trick it with Attraction products so they find themselves being magnetically drawn back over and over. This spell is something you can do every Friday as a good practice to keep money coming in (Friday being pay day after all).

Use a packet of Attraction Herb Bath to make up a strong infusion in a cup of hot water. Strain out the herbs and add it to a mop bucket with more water and a splash of ammonia in it. Now, while you pray strongly for God's help in making your place of business attractive to everyone who enters, and for them to spend their money freely, mop your store from the back to the front door. When you reach the threshold, take the bucket and mop outside and now mop from the sidewalk up to the front door of your business. This draws customers from outside, right into your store where they'll spend money hand over fist.

You can up the ante a bit by dropping a line of Attraction Powder under your front doormat so that as customers walk over it, they are affected by your magical intent.

Attract the object of your desires with a tricked love letter
Want to draw the man or woman that you fancy into your life? Attraction Powder is a great way to affect them without their knowledge, and draw them to your doorstep.

Write out a love letter to your beloved. Flip it over and dust the back of it with some Attraction Powder, all the while praying over it for her to be drawn to you like iron to a magnet. Take your four fingers and run the across the powder in wavy lines from top to bottom of the letter (toward you). Shake off the excess powder and then give the paper a flick with your finger to get the excess off. Fold up the letter and put it in the envelope and send it off to your lover.

When they open the letter, the powder will affect them and they'll be magnetically drawn to you like bees to honey, baby.

Bottle Spell to Attract a Lover to Your Home
Take a small, clean glass jar. Into it place a bit of your hair tied together with a bit of your lover's hair with a red thread. Add to the jar a lodestone dressed with Attraction Oil, with a pinch of magnetic sand to feed it, some Bo'Hog root (Lovage root), a spoon of sugar, rose petals and some Attraction Powder.

Cap off the jar and place a red candle dressed with Attraction oil on top of it, and burn it all the way down, seeing the power of the candle infusing and energizing the bottle spell - making your passion burn for one another. When the candle has burned itself out, interpret the wax drippings for signs, then burn the entire jar under your doorstep (or as near as possible to it). If you have no earth to bury your jar in, you can plant a small orange shrub, lavender plant or rose plant in a pot and put the bottle in the earth as you plant it. Set the container by your front door to grow.

The power of the herbs, the lodestones and the Attraction products will draw your lover to your front door in no time. Don't be surprised if he brings flowers or chocolates!

Reversing Hateful Slander Back at an Enemy

I recently had a client come to me regarding a hateful woman that was slandering and threatening her through various methods. The target, we'll call her Mabel, was not only attacking my client's legitimate business online, but was going a step further, sending her threatening photographs via email, posting stalker-ish images of herself online, and threatening my client with witchcraft. Mabel is involved in Wicca (modern European witchcraft) and has some interest in fringe groups that play with blood imagery as a fetish.

Determining the best magical approach
I performed a tarot card reading on the situation and consulted my spirits and guides. The one thing they made incredibly clear to me was that Mabel was a malcontent who deeply hated herself, and was doing everything in her power to knock down everyone around her who she idolized at one time, in order to make herself seem better by contrast. My spirits gave me a very powerful image of a mirror as the key to this working. I decided to take a "reversing spell" approach to the situation to hold a mirror up for Mabel to see her own hateful behavior clearly and stop it once and for all.

A reversing candle spell to repel malicious slander
I started by taking a photograph of Mabel (that she so conveniently posted of herself holding her magical knife - the primary energy wielding tool of Wiccans) and flipped it over and created a name-paper out of it. I crossed her full name with "All your evil returns to you" 9 times, dressed the paper with crab shell powder and folded it appropriately. I set it aside and prepared the candle.

Using a reversing candle (a candle that is red on the inside and black on the outside) is the perfect tool for these workings. I cut the tip off of the candle and carved a new tip on the butt of the candle (effectively flipping the candle so that it can be burned backward). In reversed writing (mirror writing) I wrote Mabel's full name on one side of the candle and "All Your Evil Returns To You" on the other side. I dressed the candle with Reversing Oil and dusted the candle in crab shell powder and put it in a candle holder on top of the prepared name-paper. All of this I set on top of a sheet of heavy-duty foil to act as a mirror to reflect it back at her (I would use a mirror tile in very bad cases, but foil really does suffice in most cases). I then laid a circle of crab shell powder, agrimony and sulfur counter-clockwise around the candle to reverse the energy back at Mabel. I lit the candle and let it burn all the way down. Here you can see the candle toward the end of its burn. It was a tall, powerful, strong and fast burn - a positive sign.

Interpreting the results
When the candle was done burning, I observed the wax drippings pictured here. I interpreted the signs to resemble a mouth biting a bleeding tongue or blood coming out of a mouth. This indicated to me that Mabel would taste the bitterness of her own words very quickly and would stop her malicious actions against my client.

Because I used foil, i was able to wrap up all of the left overs from the spell, encasing them in a mirrored packet. I disposed of the items by throwing them into the middle of a crossroads over my left shoulder and driving away without looking back.

Additional protections
To protect my client from future attacks or other enemies, I prescribed performing a Protection Floor Wash on her home using a custom-blended Fiery Wall of Protection Herb Bath mixed into conventional floor cleaner. Additionally, she was to anoint every window and door to the house with Fiery Wall of Protection Oil and wear it as a personal fragrance oil whenever she wanted to keep herself protected from any evil.

I learned from my client that Mabel was found three days after the spell was performed, crumpled on the floor of her bathroom sobbing, unable to look at herself in the mirror. She checked herself into counseling to deal with her malicious anger and her emotional baggage.

A Love Spell that REALLY Works - Dr. E.'s Three-Part Love Spell

Love spells have been an area of expertise of mine for some time. In fact, one of the first spells I ever cast was a love spell. I was young, immature and while the spell did work, it didn't bring me that "perfect mate" that I thought it would. I studied, practiced and reflected and over the course of the last 15 years have perfected the art of love spells.

I've seen many people work magic to get love into their lives, and those spells work - for a limited time. All too often, the love attained through magical work is only fleeting, or rather, the relationship breaks apart in just a few months. I've observed these patterns in my clients, friends and in my own life, and from this developed what I've found to be the best love spell out there - one that really produces long-lasting results.

Dr. E.'s Three-Part Love Spell
I like to say that magic opens doors - making it easier to attain what you desire - but ultimately you need to walk through those doors or you're not going to get what you want. When it comes to love spells, you have to do a lot of personal work, getting past insecurities, working through issues of loveability, and releasing pains from past break-ups to really craft that perfect relationship. Therefore, this type of personal reflection is woven into part one of the three-part spell.

Part two is a love spell that you cast on YOURSELF! That's right, you need to love yourself completely and unconditionally before you can ever love another in the same manner. The fountain of love has to be kept full, or you'll run dry trying to satisfy the thirst of another. Love yourself, and you'll finally be able to love a partner as he or she deserves.

Part three is the final step - where you craft a talisman to draw your perfect mate into your life, now that you've done all of the work to prepare yourself mentally, physically, emotionally, etc.

Part 1 - Love Uncrossing Baths
First, we need to uncross your love life - and that means unraveling the ball of emotional issues you have around love. Start by taking a red/black double action candle, cutting off the tip and carving a new one on the bottom. Carve into the candle using a nail or a sharp pointy tool "I release pain and heal my heart". Anoint it with Love Uncrossing Oil wiping the oil away from yourself as you hold the candle. Pray for your pains from past relationships to be washed away, and for your heart to be opened to new, genuine, unconditional love. Burn this candle every time you do your baths.

Using Dr. E. Product's Love Uncrossing Herb Bath, you'll draw a nice warm magical bath to sort through your pains from past break-ups, your emotional issues and your insecurities. Slip into the bath and soak in it. While you are soaking, meditate or reflect upon your thoughts around love and relationships. If you feel any pain or insecurities come up, scoop up some of the bath and pour it over your head and feel the bath water wash away the pain - see the pain like ink being drained out of your body and dissipating into the water. At the same time visualize the herbs in the bath like a cloud of pink energy saturating your body and replacing that pain with love, peace and security. Repeat this bath 13 times starting at the full moon and ending at the new moon. It's also a good idea to start a journal to sort through your feelings and release the pains of past relationships. Forgiveness of others and of YOURSELF goes a long way here. 13 herb baths are the minimum, you can do more until you have found yourself at peace with your past, and able to start loving yourself.

If your candle runs out while you are doing the baths, it's okay to start another one. You can repeat this process for as long as you need until you are ready for step 2.

Step 2 - Me First!
In order to really love another person, you have to love yourself first. In fact, the best relationships happen when each person in that relationship takes ownership of his or her own emotional reactions and makes sure his or her own needs are being met, instead of trying to dump all of those expectations onto their partner. Therefore, the time has come for you to fall in love with yourself first!

This spell uses more candle work, some condition oils, as well as your personal sexual fluids (the most powerful substances your body has). Obtain a pink glass-encased candle (7 day candle), as well as a photograph of yourself. Also get the scissors and some glue (I like to use tacky glue), a long pointy tool like a screwdriver or a skewer, one red rose, and a bottle of Dr. E. Products' True Love Oil to dress the candle.

On a Friday, gather the above items and cut out your photo from the background - all we want is your head and body. (If you use a headshot, make sure that your upper chest is visible - to the heart level). Put a little glue on the back of the picture and stick it to the pink candle - essentially making a "novena" candle of your own self. Using the pointy implement, poke three holes in the wax from the top down into the wax as deeply as you can go - one of these holes should be up against the glass and go through the top of your portrait's head, through the throat, down to the heart, etc. Please be careful not to shatter the glass.

Now, put a drop of the True Love oil into each of the three holes - thus getting the effect of the oil into your "head, mouth, throat and heart" so it directly affects you. Take the petals off of the red rose and sprinkle them in a heart shape around the candle (I like to sprinkle them clockwise around the candle).

To empower the working, you are now going to pleasure yourself. Yes, that's right - masturbate. The objective here is to give your body the most pleasureable thing you can as a way of working up energy for the spell, and as a symbol for the love you have for yourself. Make love to yourself, and when you climax, push all of the energy of your orgasm into the candle and say "I LOVE YOU!" to yourself. Capture a bit of your sexual fluids and put a few drops into the top of the candle as well. Finally light the candle and let it burn. Take a moment to reflect on the spell, the love you have for yourself and the new relationship you'll start forming with yourself.

Step 3 - True Love Mojo Bag
The final step of this spell is something you don't do until you reach a particular emotional state. That state is one where you are perfectly content, happy to be by yourself and aren't desperately wanting a relationship any longer. See, the trick with love spells is that they are colored by the emotional energy you put into them. If desperation and loneliness are your motivations for spell work, then your results will be a relationship where you constantly find yourself being isolated by your partner, or feeling desperate for their presence in every moment of your waking life. I might be wrong here, but I don't think that's a very healthy relationship. Once you are at a place where you could have a relationship as an enhancement to your life (not as a solution to your life), then you are ready to go on to this part of the spell.

Step three is a Triple Strength True Love Mojo Bag custom made with large mineral, root and other magical curios to draw your True Love into your life. I create Triple Strength Love Mojos in a very special way (sorry, that's my secret), and then deliver it to you. The True Love Mojo acts as a powerful ally to attract your perfect mate, and keep them in your life. You feel the True Love Mojo with True Love Oil on a weekly basis, and carry it on you whenever you're going out to find that special someone, or even on a daily basis. You never know when you'll meet "The One"!

The Synopsis
Love spells usually don't produce lasting results because most folks don't do the footwork necessary to have life-skills in place to really cope with a relationship. This three-part spell helps you build those skills, and foster the positive sense of being necessary to really make it work. A little hoodoo, and a little self-reflection goes a long way toward bringing you that True Love you've always dreamed of, and making him or her stick around! Best of luck - AND LOVE - to you all!
