I am not a huge retail shop with a storefront. My products are home- and hand-made and I donâ€™t spend a lot on fancy labels or packaging. I sew my own mojo bags, for example, and since my momma and her momma and *her* momma were too busy teaching me folk cures, thirty five ways to cook a plucked chicken, and a dizzying list of patron saints and herbal applications, I never became much of a seamstress. The good news is that this stuff doesnâ€™t have to be pretty to work.
The better news is that this frees me to devote time, energy, and money to getting, making, compounding, dressing, growing, blending, and/or preparing higher quality, authentic herbs, roots, oils, charged and blessed candles, animal and mineral curios, amulets, charms, and kits. I always ship discreetly and my lack of fancy packaging means you spend less on high-quality, ritually powerful items. I strive to get the best quality I can in season, and my mother grows and/or prepares a lot of the herbs, roots, and animal/mineral curios I use, from her five acres of land in rural, deep-south Alabama.
Iâ€™ve been working within various and sometimes syncretic spiritual traditions for over twenty-five years now. I was raised what you might call a "folk Catholic" - we went to Mass and Catholic school, but our family preserved a lot of older, "folk" practices like home altars, sewing elaborate robes for the Infant of Prague statue in the family room, saying chaplets for the dead on behalf of their souls in purgatory, working with saints, etc. But my family valued the larger community and the southern lore around us, not just the Catholic traditions, any my parents in particular were deeply interested in Eastern traditions and mind/body practices like yoga, so I learned a lot about a lot of different religions and paths even before I became a Philosophy & Religion minor as an undergraduate. Later, I branched out into studying Western ceremonial magic and various initiatory traditions. But over the last fifteen or so years I've been deepening my relationship with the spirits, saints, and loa and my knowledge of African Diasporic traditions, and I've returned to my rural, Southern roots in my practice of folk magic, even while I complete my doctoral work on saints and angels in medieval Catholic tradition. I don't wear robes or elaborate ceremonial garb much anymore, and my magical practices leave me with dirt under my fingernails a lot more often than they did when I was studying astrology or qabala! Basically I practice traditional, deep-south rural conjure, or hoodoo. But I am conversant in a lot of different traditions so I'm able to work with you if we don't have the same operative vocabulary but you're interested in taking a conjure-based approach to your problems or concerns.
My forte is custom-made hoodoo amulets & mojos, so if you donâ€™t see what you want in my pages, please write and ask! I love to do custom work (when I have time).
I have been studying various divination arts for over twenty-five years, and various systems of herblore for pretty much my whole life, but these days I pretty much stick to Tarot and other types of cartomancy, and my products are traditional conjure herblore. I come from a particularly Catholic-steeped folk magic background, so my hoodoo has lots of saints in it.
I got into exchanging money and spiritual items with the public almost by accident. I have made my own ritual oils and incenses for many years, and did spiritual work on behalf of myself and my friends and family. After a while, a friend would tell a friend, and I was getting requests from people who were essentially strangers for these things, and I was going broke giving my stuff away. So I started charging. Then I started offering some products, services, and supplies on the internet in the early 00s when I returned to the States after a few years overseas, and have had an actual store with a regular inventory and product line since 2007. So I know my stuff, and I've been doing this a while; I'm not a newcomer to hoodoo jumping on the bandwagon of its recent rise in popularity.
