Magical Necessities

There are some things that magical practitioners simply can't do without. Things that keep them safe, keep them cleansed, and keep blessings flowing their way. And, yes...even things that keep their enemies far too busy to meddle in their business or screw with their lives. They are, indeed, magical staples - and no practitioner's tool cabinet is complete without them.

So...what are these things?

Indian Head Pennies, Mercury Dimes, Shredded Money, Skeleton Keys, Spontaneous Combustion, Four Thieves Vinegar, Florida Water, and GraveYard Crossroads Dirt.

It's occurred to me, though, that some folks aren't familiar with all tools listed above - and have no idea what they're for, or how to use them. So...I've included a brief run down, as well as ordering information, below.

Indian Head Pennies
[Powerful Protection Against Harmful People and Danger]

Indian Head Pennies are often associated with Black Hawk, and have long been used in magical practice for a multitude of purposes. Tacked above inner doors with the head facing in, they act as a guard to keep the police - as well as aggravating and harmful folks - away from one's doorstep. Tacked above inner doors with the head facing the wall, they draw money into the home and keep bill collectors at bay. When nailed or pounded face up into the four corners of one's property, they guard the space and all who live there. They can also be worn around the neck or kept in the pocket for general protection, to alert against danger, to protect against legal entanglements, and to ensure the wearer's freedom - the latter of which is probably because the Indian Head on its face really isn't the image of a Native American at all. It is, instead, an image of Liberty adorned with a feathered headdress.

Please Note: Since these coins were only minted from 1859-1909, each of these has been circulated and is well over 100 years old. And for this reason alone, none of them are in pristine condition. Not by a long shot. So if you're looking at these through the eyes of a collector as opposed to those of a magical practitioner, you'd probably do better to find one elsewhere. It's also important to note that the metal composition was changed in 1864 - those minted prior to 1864 contained a good amount of nickel, and those minted thereafter contained tin and/or zinc - so coloration differs coin to coin. Some in my collection have green spots and some are a bit rusty, while others are terribly worn and misshapen. A few of them have been silvered and gilded - although to what purpose, I have no clue. And some even have holes in them, making it apparent that they're certainly not newcomers to magic. However...all of them have been thoroughly cleansed and still have a lot of magic left within!

Mercury Dime
[Potent Mojo for Bringing Good Luck & Financial Gain, as Well as Opening Roads]

As with the Indian Head Penny, the image on the face of the Mercury Dime is a bit deceptive, as it's not that of the winged god at all. Instead, it's another depiction of Liberty - only this time, she's wearing a winged cap. That's actually great news for magical practitioners, though, as the combination of the freedom she represents - along with the wings on her cap - make this particular dime an excellent tool for clearing obstacles and opening roads. In fact, many folks wear one on their ankle to keep that magic in constant motion.

The Mercury Dime has long been considered an extremely lucky coin by many folks. Brides are given one to wear in their shoe before walking down the aisle to ensure a lucky marriage. When a knife is presented as a gift, one is given as a return token to prevent the blade from cutting the friendship. And most serious gamblers simply refuse to participate in games of chance without one in their pocket.

But the dime's magical properties go far beyond opening roads and bringing good fortune. The circulated dimes are also of great use when it comes to money magic - and not just because of the coin's image or the fact that it's crafted of silver. Having been used and passed person to person countless times over the years, they've already been well integrated into the financial system, and are an integral part of the cash flow system. In addition to adding them to money spells and mojo, some folks even utilize them in making "money water" - a process that involves soaking them in tap water from Sunday through Thursday - to use in anointing both their hands and workspace as a quick money draw.

And if that's not enough, they are also used in efforts to conteract curses and protect against malicious magic. It's one tool I'd never be without!

Shredded Money
[Authentic Shredded U.S. Currency - A Powerful Addition to All Efforts of Financial Gain]

There's nothing like adding real money to a spell for financial gain, as it immediately obliterates any confusion regarding focus and intent, and gets cash flowing in your direction post haste. And this shredded cash is simply perfect for the job!

I add it to money-drawing oil and let it steep overnight before using it to anoint myself or dress candles. I mix it into incense, add it to charm bags, mix it into the soil before planting my money-drawing herbs. I add it to my personal room sprays, floor washes - paying special attention to the threshhold of the front door when I clean - carpet deodorizer powder, and household cleaners. And...at the first of every year, I take care to sprinkle a bit under the mat at the front door, just to ensure that cash flows steadily into our household.

The ways to incorporate it into your magic are absolutely limitless. And best of all, a little goes a very long way!

Skeleton Key
[Unlocks Mysteries, Secrets, Magic, and Much More]

The Skeleton Key has long been revered for many reasons, but mostly because it has the ability to open many doors, rather than just one. And since it's a master key of sorts, it makes the perfect addition to the magical tool box. It's sacred to Elegba, who holds the keys to the gates between the mundane and magical worlds, as well as to Hecate and the Man at the Crossroads - both of Whom stand at the crossroads of life, and unlock that which keeps one from successfully moving forward. But that's not all. It can also be enchanted for use in magical efforts focused toward unlocking secrets and mysteries and doors of opportunity - and even be used in efforts to unlock the flow of personal magic when the practitioner feels blocked. Worn about the neck, it puts the wearer in control, and protects him or her from ill will and harm. No magical tool box is complete without one!

So to save you some time and frustration - and prevent you from visiting that place to which I never wish to return - you can also purchase all four of these fabulous tools together.

Tool Combo
[$17.00 each plus $5.00 Shipping and Handling]

Mojo on the Go Combo
[The Perfect Solution for Busy Practitioners]

Spontaneous Combustion: While lots of folks think that a good, old-fashioned scrubbing should be enough to remove negative energy, it's just not so. The fact of the matter is that it only removes its hiding places. It doesn't get rid of the negative stuff, the obstacles that sprout from it, or keep it from breeding those nasty little ooga-boogas that turn your life upside down. Instead, it just brings it - and its offspring - out into the open for a more direct attack. And there's nothing even remotely good about that!

So most practitioners reach for the charcoal, the sage and a kitchen match. They smoke up their house with this burning mess in hopes that all that smudging will destroy the nasties and clear the energy into something more positive. And maybe it will, somewhat. But seriously, Folks…who wants their freshly scrubbed home to smell like some long forgotten and burnt-to-cinders Thanksgiving turkey? I sure as hell don't - and I'm willing to bet you don't either.

So…what do you do? Just leave the little bastards to their own devices and allow them to screw with your life?

No! You declare war. You spritz your way to immediate victory. And you do it by employing the most effective cut-n-clear product on the market: Spontaneous Combustion.

So what makes Spontaneous Combustion better than any other cut-n-clear? Well for one thing, it not only blows that negative crap to bits on contact, but sweeps away all residual debris in one fell swoop. It's quick and easy to use. You don't have to "get your head in the right place" to get results. And there's nothing to clean up - psychically, physically, or otherwise - after. It truly is a no-muss-no-fuss-just-results sort of product. But that's not all. Your living space will smell fresh and yummy, and never again be adorned with the fragrance of burnt fowl - and there's certainly something to be said for that!

Florida Water: Although Florida Water was first introduced as a uni-sex cologne in early nineteenth century, magical practitioners have discovered many other uses for it over the years; so many, in fact, that it has now become a staple in magical tool boxes everywhere.

So, how is it used?

It's used as a surface cleaner to cleanse tools, altars, and magical work areas. It's a great tool when used for blessing a new home, as it cleanses any negative residue left by previous tenants, as well as bringing bountiful personal blessings - all in one easy step. It's perfect for ritual baths, for cleansing the aura and the spirit both before and after magical workings, and for quickly lifting that sluggishness known as the "blahs."

Of course, Florida Water is widely known for the uses listed above. But once I stopped using the popular manufactured brand and started blending my own, I quickly saw that cleansing and blessing were only the beginning of its power. Spritzed on the body before meditation and divination, it opens the channels for both prophetic and divinatory messages. Spritzed on the pillow at night, it clears the way for prophetic dreaming. It attracts the attention of the Ancestors when used to cleanse and bless Their altars. And there's an added bonus for business owners, as well: A spritz in the workplace each morning brings boundless good luck and a substantial increase in sales. I wouldn't be without it - and you shouldn't, either!

Four Thieves Vinegar: The history of this fabulous concoction is steeped in both in legend and in magic. But let's start with the legend, because a good tale laced with scandal is always fun!

The Bubonic plague raged intermittently through Europe for nearly 600 years, and some say that it claimed nearly half the population. It was an awful disease that lead to an excruciatingly painful death, and everyone was terrified of being infected. Everyone, that is, except for four Frenchmen - who looted the bodies of the dead as if they hadn't a care in the world.

The story goes that they were finally caught and given a choice: They could be put to death for their crimes…or…they could tell the authorities exactly how they'd managed to stay healthy, while exposing themselves to the disease that had claimed so many. Of course, they chose the latter. The secret, they said, was a vinegar-based herbal concoction which the plague could not infiltrate. They turned over the recipe, and Four Thieves Vinegar was born!

Whether the story is true or not is anybody's guess. But through the years, Four Thieves Vinegar has garnered quite a reputation: Both mundane and magical. It's been touted as a terrific disinfectant, and used as a household surface cleanser to counteract germs. But its magical uses go much further. Practitioners use it to protect themselves and their magical work areas from hexes, curses, and nasty energy. They spray the outside perimeter of their homes to protect against thieves. They dab it on the eyes, noses and mouths of poppets to blind others to their actions, stop gossip, and keep folks out of their business. And some of them even dab a bit on sigils, petitions and magical tools to safeguard against outside influences.

[Please Note: The Four Thieves Vinegar I've blended and offer is NOT acceptable for human consumption!]

The Mojo on the Go Combo is comprised of one 2 oz. bottle of each of the sprays described above, and comes packaged in an organza bag.

GraveYard CrossRoads Dirt
[When the Only Cure is a Curse...]

I was searching the internet for graveyard dirt a few months ago, as my supply was low and I needed some for the Bad JuJu jars. And what did I discover? That most of what passes for graveyard dirt these days isn't dirt at all. Instead, it's a mixture of patchouli and wormwood - something commonly known as "goofer dust." The two are not even close to being synonymous; in fact, there isn't even the slightest resemblance.

So I waited until full moon, grabbed Mark, a garden trowel and some ziplock bags, and headed for parts unknown in search of a rural cemetery. It was quite the field trip, but we finally found exactly what I looking for: An old cemetery off the beaten path, that from all appearances, hadn't been visited in years. Even better, there was crossroads right in the center. It was as if Oya, Herself, had given me a precious gift - one of which I swiftly took advantage!

So...what exactly do you do with this particular dirt? And why is it a magical necessity?

Graveyard dirt can be used for many things, but this particular dirt is used for cursing and hexing. And because it was gathered from a cemetery crossroads, it also brings confusion and chaos to its target. It can be added to the stuffing of poppets, added to spells, tricks and hexing packets, sprinkled on candles and incense, and even to bury a target's name. The possibilities are endless, and only limited by your imagination.

But a magical necessity? Absolutely! Even if you think you would NEVER hex or curse someone, there comes a time in every practitioner's life where it's the only sound solution. The only way to stop your tormentor in his or her tracks, and take back your life. And when that happens, you're not only going to need this dirt, but quickly discover that it may not be as easy as buying some or gathering it yourself. Why? Because it's illegal to gather graveyard dirt in some states, and illegal to sell it in others. And you might just wind up empty-handed.

Please Note: I have now found several rural cemeteries that are suitable to my collection purposes. So the color and texture of the dirt you receive may vary according to the location I was closest to during Full Moon collection.

GraveYard CrossRoads Dirt comes bottled in a generous 2 oz. size - more than enough to handle any of your magical needs - and packaged in a black organza bag.
