Sachet Powder Book Page
Having gone out of favor in many
practices in recent time, and having almost no introduction to the pagan
community, condition sachet powders are a long standing staple in
Hoodoo. The practice of blowing and sprinkling powders comes from
African magical traditions, and European influences.
Before the introduction of
compounding sachet powders with talc powders, sprinkling powders were
made primarily of natural minerals and herbal mixtures such as salt,
sand, pepper, sulphur powder, graveyard dirt and the well known Goofer
Dust. Talc based sachet powders are a blend of traditional minerals and
magical herbs, along with condition oils.
|The most common type of Sachet Powder used in Hoodoo are the
condition powders, made of the same formula’s of the Hoodoo
Condition Oils. These powders are used in a wide variety of
ways; sprinkling on the ground, blowing from the hand, dusting
on papers, dressing candles and wearing on the body.
The choice of formula’s for condition powders are as broad as
that as it is for bath crystals, incense powders and of course
hoodoo ritual oils. Famous names such as Money Drawing, Fast
Luck, Crown of Success, Uncrossing and Road Opener can be found
in Hoodoo Sachet Powders.
|For those that make use of astrological work when “doing a
job” or ritual, having Zodiac sachet powders makes a great deal
of sense. Because sachet powders can be used both on candles and
on papers, sachet powders that are made with herbs and roots
associated with the Zodiac signs can be used to personalize
candles, and dress astrological charts to bring about specific
influences. Henri Gamache popularized the use of Zodiac Oils in
his book The Master Book of Candle Burning.

|Another choice to be considered in addition to condition
powders are sachet powders made with powders and herbs
associated with planetary influences. Planetary sachet powders
can be used to further attune astrological work, or to
strengthen work that is traditionally done on specific days.

then dress candles, petition papers or your altar space with

How Sachet Powders are
Used in Hoodoo Practices
Blowing – A practice that comes from
African traditions is blowing powders onto another person or in some
cases a space. The powder is traditionally held in the hand and then
blown onto the person. This may be done for both enemy work and
Sprinkling – One of the most common
uses of condition powders is sprinkling the powders either in the path
of an enemy or in the corners of a room. Goofer Dust and Hot Foot powder
are two of the most common formulas to be used when laying foot track
magic in the path of your enemy, to cause them to move out of their
home, or to be crossed or “goofered”. Powders can also be sprinkled in
the four corners of the room for protection, blessing and prosperity.
Another recent introduction into
Hoodoo is the practice of blending a sachet powder with baking soda to
use as a carpet sprinkle in place of a floor wash for homes with wall to
Dusting Candles – After a candle has
been anointed with a condition or ritual oil, sachet powders may then be
dusted on the candle creating a smooth feeling candle that is very nice
to handle. The same formula may be used to strength the work, or zodiac
powders may be used to personalize the work. Alternatively, for those
that wish to bring about two similar conditions without using two oils,
a complimentary choice of oil and powder may be selected, such as Lucky
Mojo Money Drawing Oil, and Lucky Mojo Money Stay With Me Sachet Powder
to seal and keep the money that is drawn.
Dressing Papers – In candle shops,
jars of sachet powders can often be found along side candle dressing
oils such as Lucky Mojo Healing Oil. The sachet powders are used to
anoint the hand written petition papers made by the client, or
photographs that are added to the candle work.
In addition to the dressing of
petition papers and photographs, sachet powders are used to dress all
forms of papers that a client may wish to influence on. Formulas such as
Crown of Success, King Solomon Wisdom, Court Case, Boss Fix and Lucky 13
Lottery can be used to dress proposals, homework, court papers, job
applications and lottery tickets.
Wearing on the body – Many woman, and
even men, dress their bodies with commercially available powders, before
they dress or add to their shoes. Condition powders like Lucky Mojo Love
Me Sachet Powder can be used in replacement of these bringing about
love, success, prosperity and luck.
