HOODOO HERB AND ROOT MAGIC
A Materia Magica of African-American Conjure
by catherine yronwode
This is the first book of its kind, presenting accurate botanical information about the roots and herbs that are employed in African-American folk-magic, with sample spells that will show you how to make and use your own mojo bags, spiritual baths, and incense.
Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic is a practical manual for those working in traditions such as hoodoo, rootwork, witchcraft, spell-craft, conjure, white magick, black magick, pow-wow magic, hexenkraft, and herb magic. Included are hundreds of easy love spells, money spells, protection spells, healing spells, curses, and revenge spells, plus a wealth of botanical lore for the student of herbology.
With solid sales and enthusiastic reviews since its original publication in 2002, we believe that Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic is well on its way to becoming a standard in the fields of folk magic and kitchen-witchery. With 24,000 copies in print, it has become a go-to reference source for workers in almost every magical tradition.
Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic is currently available in its Eighth Revised Edition -- with more herbal entries than ever and more magic spells than ever -- at no change in price! All copies purchased from The Lucky Mojo Curio Co. Occult Shop or from our online affiliate The herbmagic.com Magical Herb Shop are signed by the author.
The author, Catherine Yronwode, is the proprietor of the Lucky Mojo Curio Company, a manufactory for traditional herb-based spiritual supplies. A former staff editor for Organic Gardening Magazine, she has written extensively on subjects as diverse as gardening, home crafts, antiques and collectibles, comic books, rural music, and other aspects of popular culture. She lives in Northern California with her husband, a dog, cats, and chickens.
- 224 pages, available in trade paperback softcover ($18.00) or limited edition clothbound hardcover ($42.00).
- 500 herbs, roots, minerals, and rare zoological curios, with taxonomic ("Latin") names for proper identification.
- 750 traditional spells, tricks, and magical recipes. These are complete, easy-to-use, and highly practical, designed for readers who want to go beyond the "romance" or symbolism of herb magic and actually mix up and make their own potions, dressing oils, bath crystals, incenses, floor washes, and mojo bags. If you grow or gather herbs, this book will teach you exactly how to use them.
- 50 black and white line illustrations of common magical herbs and roots of North America.
- 6 handy charts in which dozens of conditions -- such as love-drawing or protection -- are listed and the herbs for each condition are given in alphabetical order. This saves time when looking for ways to use herbs that are available -- and you can use these charts to find substitutions, if necessary.
- Cross-referencing: Every herb is accompanied by at least one spell. End-of-entry cross-references make it easy to find other spells in which the herb is used -- no flipping back to an index: Cross-references are right in the entry itself.
- Bibliography: Authentic recipes are drawn from first-hand experience and 100 years of solid folkloric research.
