An Oil for Love


An Oil for Love


You’ll want this oil for its aromatherapy, as well as the magical properties of the herbs used themselves. All herbs that are listed in oil are associated with love. You’ll still need a carrier oil to use this oil blend, but you’ll want to wear this oil directly. If you are not satisfied with the scent of this oil, add more rose essential oil before placing it in a cool, dark place. The scent is important to the magical properties of this blended oil.


1. 15-20 Drops Rose Essential Oil

2. 1 Tablespoon Chamomile Flowers, dried

3. 2 Teaspoons Cinnamon, Ground

4. 1 Tablespoon Lavender, Dried

5. ½ Cup Almond Oil


1. You’ll want to mix all of these herbs together in a bowl before placing them in a jar.

2. Pour the almond oil over them, and then add your essential oil.

3. Take the jar in your hands and think about attracting love. Think about the type of person you want to attract to you, and shake the jar gently until everything is distributed evenly throughout.

4. Place in a cool, dark place and wait five to six days before straining. Each day you’ll want to shake the jar and visualize.

One of the More Popular Powders Found in Voodoo/Hoodoo

Hot Foot Power

There are times in our lives when we just have to rid ourselves of a person, the reasons vary from person to person. Hotfoot work is very powerful and serious work.

This is not the type of work you do because someone made you mad. Hotfoot if made right will make the target wonder, their spirit will never be able to find peace. This should always be a last resort. Am I saying it shouldn’t be used? No I’m not. If someone has pushed me so far until I decide to hot foot him or her then I don’t really care what effect it has on him or her. I want them out of my life. As I’ve said before we are each responsible for our actions. I don’t just hot foot someone who has made me mad or gotten on my nerves; this has always been a last resort for me. But if the need arises, I will use it in a heartbeat. The safest way to work with hot foot is either in a medicine bottle or a jar; this way it only affects the target and not everyone who gets in it.

This is my own personal hot foot powder. To make the powder you will need a large airtight jar. Then you need to find a fire ant bed. You have to be careful when collecting these ants. If they bite you it can make your run fever. The bites burn like fire and they get very hot. Once you get the ants in the jar they will run around and try to get out. When they settle down I shake the jar to make them start moving again. I will do this four or five times before I leave them alone. They are one of the key ingredients in the hot foot powder; and just like they want to get out of the jar so will the target want to get away. I usually collect the ants when the sun is going down; this is just my preference. I have collected them when I need to make the powder for a quick job, no matter what time of day it was.

When the ants stop trying to get out of the jar; I will add all the other ingredients to the jar. I don’t measure the ingredients; I have made this powder enough to know what it should look like when I’ve added enough of each ingredient. I probably add:

1. About two tablespoons of Sulfur to the jar
2. About a tablespoon of graveyard dirt
3. Dirt Daubers Nest (a little of this goes a long way)
4. I add enough Red Pepper to the dirt so you can see the Pepper in the dirt
5. Once this is done I shake the jar well
6. Last I add the Cornstarch
7. Shake the jar well

Now you should have a nice pink powder. Keep the lid on the jar tight to keep the dampness out. I keep the jar put up until I need to use the powder, then I only take out what I need.
