"Some folks think of Separation as a "weaker" form of our famous Break Up product line, but that is incorrect. Separation is not "weaker;" it is different -- it is deliberately made with a measure of healing and calming herbs as well as those that will tend to drive folks apart. Separation products are especially useful when there are issues of child support and child custody involved or when the parties who are breaking up will continue to be employed at the same job site or attend the the same school."
-- The Lucky Mojo Curio Co. catalogue
Separation is an old hoodoo formula for oil, incense, sachet powders, and washing products that are designed to cause a couple to calmly move apart or stop seeing one another. They can be used to bring about an amicable divorce within your own marriage, to cleanly put an end to affairs or, as is most often the case, to put an end to school or job site cliques.
Separation candles, oils, powders, and incense are customarily used when the idea is for a calm, strong path toward disentanglement with no fights, problems, or left-over hard feelings.
Sometimes when one wishes to work in secret, Confusion or Restless supplies are added to Separation products to decrease effective communication between parties and to cause them to wander away from one another without fighting.
For those wishing to resolve property issues in an well-intentioned split-up, our Separation supplies may be blended with Court Case products. If child-custody issues are also part of the work, then King Solomon Wisdom spiritual supplies may be blended in as well.
If your goal is to cause fussing and fights, then Separation alone is not the best sline of supplies for your work. Instead, you may do better to employ the related but harsher-acting formula called Break Up instead of -- or in addition to -- Separation, and to blend it with Inflammatory Confusion rather than Confusion or Restless.
Separation is available in foil packages of Lucky Mojo brand Separation sachet powders, Separation incense powders, Separation crystal salts, and a 1/2 oz. bottle of Separation oil for anointing oneself or dressing candles. Like the rest of the Lucky Mojo line, these products contain genuine reputed separation herbs and herbal essential oils, not synthetic fragrances. The ingredients in Separation include rusty nails, plus other herbs and essences. Lucky Mojo labels are adapted from vintage packaging and in many cases the images are as traditional as the ingredients themselves.
Using Separation spiritual supplies can be as simple as dressing black Divorce candles with the oil -- to laying down sachet powders in the couple's home to cause them to fight. When starting Separation work, some people like to get things going with a full-blown spell and then continue to use the sachet powders to dress the places where the couple will walk over them.
Here is a simple magic spell you can work to gently move people apart. It is sometimes consideerd to be an all-purpose spell because there are many variations that can be improvised from it.
Get a Broom Straw to represent each person you wish to separate from one another. You can use as few as two and as many as necessary, if your aim is to disperse a large group of people. Each Broom Straw must be named for one person, in their full name, if possible. If you are unsure of the names, use whatever information yoiu have, such as nicknames, physical description, or a description of their role in the situation.
Take the Broom Straws to an empty Crossroads, lay them down in the center, and either sprinkle a packet of Separation sachet powders on them, or douse them with the contents of a bottle of Separation oil as you speak aloud for the end to closeness. Conclude by saying, "As vehicles come from the four dirctions and cross this Crossroads on their way to the four quarters of the world, thus let this couple [or these people] be scattered apart as these broomstaws."
Another way to work this spell is to take smoke the pair or bundle of Broom Straws with Separation incense powders or soak them overnight in a basin of warm water into which you have dissolved a couple of pinches of Separation crystal salts.
Carry the prepared Broom Straws to a river, and throw them into the water so that they will float away from one another, asking as you do so that "as the currents of this river run and run, so will [the persons names] be carried away from one another."
Note that this spell is not designed to break up a your lover and his or her outside partner and then bring your lover back. It is only a SEPARATION spell, not a break-up-and-reuniting spell.
If what you need is a Break Up AND a reuinion, i recommend either a different spell -- one which employs candles to represent every party in the matter, including you -- or working a two-part spell, first a Break Up bottle spell and then a Return to Me spell and/or a Reconciliation spell for you and your lover.
