Lucky Mojo honey jar mini spell kit with red candle for love

Sweetening spells are employed in hoodoo and many other types of worldwide folk magic when you want someone to be sweet to you, that is --

to favour you, like you, hire you, love you, marry you, stay with you, return to you, reconcile with you, give you a written recommendation, give testimony in your favour, decide a legal issue in your favour over another, make a generous financial settlement in your favour, favour your family members over the members of other families, give you a raise, give you time off, give you paid leave, speak kindly to you at a family gathering, treat you kindly in public, stop talking behind you, cease from anger against you, cease from all wrath, cease from verbal abuse, cease from physical abuse, and so forth.

The sweeteners used in these spells vary by historical era, region of the country, commercial or home-made availability, family traditions, local traditions, and intuitive decisions. Just in African American conjure alone, without regard to other forms of folk magic found around the world --

white sugar, brown sugar, sugar cubes, powdered sugar, karo syrup, brer rabbit molasses, cane molasses, sorghum syrup, sweetened water, sweetened whiskey, honey, crystal syrup, log cabin maple syrup (in the house-shaped can), mrs butterworth's pancake syrup (in the lady-shaped bottle), dixie pancake syrup, aunt jemima's pancake syrup, agave syrup, jam, jelly, sweet chewing gum, candy bars, hard candies, sugar heart candies, chocolate truffle candies, butterscotch candies dissolved in sweet tea, lollipops, popsicles, sweet-n-low, equal, splenda, mannitol ("milk sugar"), dextrose powder, dextrose candies, and more --

-- all of these have been used, and are still used, in sweetening spells, either singly or mixed ith one another.

Sweetening spells have been and are still often worked inside containers --

boxes, bottles, canning jars, small food jars, hollowed red onions, cored red apples, covered sugar bowls, under plants in pots, under the roots of plants in the ground, wrapped in tin foil, wrapped in paper, within a layer of enrobing chocolate, in a wallet, in a purse, in a pocket, in a mojo hand, in the shoes

-- but, although sugar and honey spells are some of the oldest forms of bottle spell in the world, not all of them are worked in bottles or other containers; in fact, they have been and still are often worked out loose --

on dinner plates, in tea or coffee cups, in open bowls, on saucers, in pie tins, on cookie sheets, sprinkled on candles, sprinkled on altars, sprinkled in baths, sprinkled on the floor or the ground

-- both with or without the additional use of candles, with or without added herbs or minerals, with or without added powders or dusts or incense.

Sugar and Sugar Cubes

There are so many variations to sweetening spells that i call the whole lot of them a "spell family." And just as in a human family, not all of the members look exactly alike. You will see resemblances that can be noted, and you will see differences as well.

Do not let anyone tell you that some variations are "valid" while others are not. These spells are so ancient and so widespread that if you understand the family resemblances, you will soon come to see that a touch of menstrual blood on a fresh strawberry that has been dipped and covered with a hard chocolate coating is not all that far from the name paper of a bankruptcy court judge that is kept in a half-pint mason jar full of sugar cubes with a tea light on top or the business card of a boss that is folded inside a piece of aluminum foil with a sprinkle of sugar and kept in a wallet or worn in a shoe. The petition is for sweetness. The social form of sweetness desired, from whom it is desired, and how that desire is worked into a physical spell to be conveyed to influence the minds and hearts of others are the variables. But really, when you look at them, these spells are not so much different as they are similar.

Honey Moon Honey Label New Orleans

Modern folks have taken to calling the whole family of sweetener spells "honey jar" and "sugar bowl" spells, placing an emphasis on the fact that many of them are worked in closed containers (jars and bowls), but in the oldest version of these spells that i know, there is actually no jar or bowl, just a plain white tea cup saucer or coffee cup saucer in the center of which you burn a candle on the person's name, dressed with hoodoo oils and surrounded by a poured-out ring of pancake syrup, honey, or molasses. This old-fashioned method has the disadvantage of eventually drawing flies or ants, but it is extremely easy to work on a short-term basis, say for one to three days. Be careful, though, if the candle burns too hot, it may crack your saucer.

Another early version of the these sweetening spells is a container spell, but not actually a bottle spell as we think of them today. It employs a hollowed-out red apple or red onion to hold honey, jam, or sugar, plus the name-paper of the person on whom you are working. The apple or onion may be shut up in a metal tin, such as a coffee or honey can, and a candle burned on the tin's lid -- or it can be placed in the bottom of a flower pot, with a plant grown on top of it to hide the spell. The plant takes the place of candle, but it radiates the intent of the spell just the same. It can be given as a gift to the person on whom you are working, and can spread its sweetness throughout their home.


During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as packaged sugar, honey, syrup, and liquid sweeteners became available from grocery stores, another variant of this spell was developed that employed a one-pound box of sugar. You cut off the top of the box, put the name in, stick a candle in the sugar, and burn it. After the candle is finished, you remove the remnant wax from the sugar and bury it. The advantage to this method is that after you finish the spell, you can use the sugar in cooking, to sweeten the person on whom you are working. The disadvantage is that you need to be careful not to catch the chipboard box on fire -- a small, skinny candle will solve that problem.

A similar effect can be obtained by working the spell in a sugar bowl, either with granular sugar or with sugar cubes. With this variation, not only can you cook food for folks, but if you are working on family issues, for peace in the home, they will feed THEMSELVES the sugar, every time they sweeten their coffee.

Jams and jellies are also used this way: you can stir some edible love herbs in when making them at home, or you can pray over and prepare commercial jams or jellies in the same way for use at the table in spells of domestic love. You can also take into consideration the type of fruit from which the jam or jelly is made: rose petal and strawberry jam for sexual love, orange marmalade for cleanliness and marriage, fig preserves for female fertility.

Because it is a common magical practice to combine or mix several ingredients together when making a spell, the era of packaged sweeteners also brought us the idea of double- and-triple-strength sweetening spells, made by pouring honey into sugar or mingling mollasses, honey, and sugar together for extra "oomph." This sort of mixing is not necesary, but if you like spending time on preparation by building layers of meaning and intention into your spells, you may be assured that working this way is old and authentic and goes back a long way in time.

These "contained" forms of hoodoo spell casting are often employed when you want to set up a powerful sweetening spell in a small place and keep it working for as long as you wish. Spells worked in jars are extremely convenient and one reason for their continued popularity is that although they can be worked on an altar like other forms of bottle spell, they can also be literally hidden in plain sight in a kitchen cabinet.

By the mid 20th century, with packaged goods available in every grocery store, the closed sugar jar, honey-jar, jam-jar, and pancake syrup bottle versions of these spells gradually became more popular than the old cream-saucer, cored apple, hollowed onion, and sugar box versions. The spells given on this web page include a variety of old and new, with a focus on some the most common bottle spell variations of this spell-family that you will encounter these days, namely those that consist of filling a jar, box, bowl, or bottle with a liquid or solid sweetener into which you place the personal concerns of the person you want to influence, along with spiritually powerful magical herbs, wrapped in a name-paper or petition packet, on top of which you burn a candle that has been inscribed and then dressed with an appropriate conjure oil. But always remember, this is a FAMILY of spells, and there is no one "approved" way to do the work. I will teach you some of my favourite ways and i will tell you why i prefer them to some of the other ways in certain specific cases or under certain specific practical conditions, but keep in mind that this is a large family ... and not all of its members even know one another, so to speak.




This magic bottle spell can be worked on anyone's name you want to sweeten. Depending on what relationship the person has to you, what special items you put into the name-packet, the colour of the candle you choose, and the hoodoo oil you dress it with, this trick will cause the person you name to like you more, to love you more, to favour your petition, to want to help you, to be sympathetic to your cause, or to forgive any wrongs you have committed. It can be used to influence and sweeten a judge in a court case, a loan officer at the bank, a boss from whom you want a raise, a teacher in your school from whom you want a good grade, a lover with whom you want a reconciliation, an in-law who has been back-biting you, or friend who has cut you off because of a foolish quarrel.

You will need:

a jar of sweetener (see below)
a piece of paper (see below)
a pen or pencil
optional herbs, curios, and/or bodily concerns (see below)
a candle (choose the appropriate colour at the candle magic page)
an all-purpose candle-dressing conjure oil such as Special Oil No. 20 or a specific condition oil such as Kiss Me Now, Return To Me, Court Case, Crown of Success, or whatever expresses your wish and suits your needs.



Get a small jar of sweetener. This can be honey, Karo Syrup, Crystal Syrup, Dixie Syrup, home-made brown sugar syrup, Log Cabin Syrup, Vermont maple syrup, Bre'r Rabbit Blackstrap Molasses, jam, jelly, or whatever you desire or have on hand -- as long as it is in a container with a metal lid. You can buy the goods in a quart or pint-size glass Mason jar or pour the sweetening of your choice into a smaller jar of your own at home. All that matters is that it should be a short, squat jar with a metal lid, filled up to the shoulder of the jar. I like to use small jars because i don't feel right wasting food; but if you are using sugar and intend to cook with it later, go ahead and use the bigger size of jar.

Canning Jars of Varied Sizes

In the old days, when skin colour was a lot more important to people than it is now, it was recommended that the colour of the sweetener match the skin of the person you wanted to sweeten. Thus, for a white judge, you might use Crystal Syrup, and for a Latino loan officer you might use light brown sugar syrup, and for a dark-skinned lover you might use Bre'r Rabbit Blackstrap Molasses. Frankly, these days specifying a person's skin colour is not as meaningful as it once was (for which we can all be thankful), and today many folks prefer to use honey for the spell, no matter what the target's skin colour is, because it is a natural sweetener and not man-made. I believe that if you just follow your own intuition and decide which sweetener you like the best, you can be confident that you have made the right choice. Just be sure that whatever you use is very sweet, for if you choose sweetened water and make it too watery, your syrup may grow mold inside (ugh!) or it may ferment and your bottle may explode (ack!).

Next, prepare your paper. Again, in the old days, we would be told to use white paper for a white person, tan paper for a high-brown, and rough old grocery-bag paper for a person of dark colour, but these days the type of paper you use can simply be a matter of personal style. Many people prefer the kind of cream-coloured parchment paper that comes with the Lucky Mojo hoodoo honey jar mini spell kit shown above. I often use a smooth, tan-coloured light-weight shopping bag paper because that is my choice, based on the way i was taught, which was that such paper is "pure paper." No matter which kind of paper i use, i prepare my paper by tearing it neatly on all four sides so there is no machine-cut edge. Of course some folks trim their paper square with scissors -- and the spell still works for them. So go ahead and prepare your paper just as you wish and that will suffice.



Once you have got your paper together, write the person's name three times on it, one name under the other like so

John Russell Brown
John Russell Brown
John Russell Brown
Then rotate the paper 90 degrees clockwise and write your own name across the person's name, also three times:
Abigail Samantha Little
Abigail Samantha Little
Abigail Samantha Little
The result will be that the two names are crossed over each other, like a cross or a tic-tac-toe grid, and the other person's name will be under yours. This is called crossing and covering their name. If the sweetening is being done for love, you can use a red ink pen. Otherwise, the colour of the ink does not matter, and you can just as easily use a pencil.

Now all around the crossed names, write your specific wish in a circle. If you need a guideline, lightly sketch the circle-shape with a pencil and then follow around it when writing with your ink pen. You must write your wish in one continuous run of script letters, with no spaces -- AND WITHOUT LIFTING YOUR PEN FROM THE PAPER. Do not cross your t's or dot your i's. Just write the words in one run and be sure to join up the end of the last word with the beginning of the first word so the circle is complete. Then you can go back and cross your t's and dot your i's. To make it easy to connect the word together at the end, i have found it best to make my petition in the form of short commands, such as "help me favour me help me favour me" or "love me love me love me" or "forgive me come back forgive me come back."



If you make a mistake -- for instance, if you lift your pen in the middle of writing your petition-circle -- throw away the paper and start it all over again. You want it to be perfect.

Other ingredients can be added to the name-paper if you wish -- a piece of court case root for a court case spell, two rose petals for a love spell, a lump of sugar for a family member, two clove buds for friendship, bayberry root or sassafras root for a money spell, a pair of Adam-and-Eve roots for love, two small Lodestones for sexuality, a pinch of deer's tongue leaves for a proposal of marriage, a square of camphor for cleaning out bad things of the past, and so forth.

If you are sweetening someone for love, then in addition to the name-paper and whatever optional herbs, roots, or minerals you choose, you must also get one of the person's hairs and one of your hairs. If the hairs are long enough, tie them together. Otherwise, just lay them crosswise to each other. In either case, place them on the name-paper. Don't ask me what to do if you can't get their hairs 'cause i can't help with that. Either work the spell without the hairs and expect a much lower rate of success or get the hairs! Don't load the paper up with lots of other stuff thinking that if you can't get the hairs that six different love-herbs and two lodestones will be as strong as two hairs. They won't be.



Fold the paper toward you to bring what you want your way and speak aloud your wish as you do so. Turn the paper and fold it again, and again, always folding toward you, to bring what you want your way. Speak aloud your wish each time you fold the paper toward you. Fold it until it will not fold any more.

Open the jar of sugar, honey, jam, or syrup. To make room for the folded paper packet, you will need to eat some of the contents. Take out a spoon's worth, and as you eat it, say, "As this honey [or syrup or sugar] is sweet to me, so will i become sweet to John Russell Brown [or the name of the person you are working this on]."

Alternatively, if someone is not acting as sweetly to you as you think he should, you can say, "As this honey [or syrup or sugar] is sweet to me, so will John Russell Brown [or the name of the person you are working this on] be sweet to me."

If the petition is for a case in which you want a favour, you can specify the type of sweetness. For instance, in a legal matter that will go before a judge for a final decision, you can say, "As this honey [or syrup or sugar] is sweet to me, so will Judge Fogarty [or the name of the judge in your case] be sweet to me and favour me above all others."

You can do this three times -- taking out three small spoonsful of sweetener and speaking your wish aloud each time. Push the folded paper packet down into the jar and close up the lid.

Dress an offertory candle (a 50 cent, 6" long candle or a 25 cent 4" long one, nothing fancy) with an appropriate anointing oil or a combination of hoodoo or conjure oils, or use Special Oil No. 20, which is a ready-made combination specifically indicated in this type of bottle spell. Use a white candle for general blessing and healing, a red one for sexual love, a pink one for reconciliation, a brown one for a court case, and so forth. (For a longer list of colour symbolism, see the page on candle magic.)

Stand the candle on the lid of the closed-up jar and light it. You can melt the candle to the lid with hot wax if need be.

Let the candle burn all the way out. Do this every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, for as long as it takes. Add each new candle on top of the remains of the last one. I have seen people's syrup-jar bottle spells like this done for court cases that were continued for so long and required so many candles that you could not see the jar under all the dripped-on wax!

In December 2003, a person posting from Italy inquired in Usenet about a bottle spell that was found in a recently vacated apartment:


I'm ignorant concerning jinxes and other types of spells. So i describe you what happened to me. I found a leaflet conserved in a jar full of honey, in a flat previously occupied by a Dominican girl. The leaflet says:

"Ana Plenagua" (a list of names follows) "que como son el nombre che cada uno de esta persona se enfrien asi tenga que carma la ira con migo y con mi copate"
I apologize for the untranslated Spanish (I don't understand Spanish) and for the probable errors of words (some words are not clear). I thank in advance everybody can give me the meaning of this leaflet and, in the case of jinx, the way to rid of this.


andrea. (andrea_gazze at



Andrea made no mention of finding candle wax on the honey jar, so it is likely that writing out the names and the petition and placing them in the honey jar constituted the entirety of this particular magical bottle spell. I replied to Andrea's questions as best i could, given that my Spanish is not too good:
I think some of the Spanish words may be spelled wrong, so i am a little unclear on what is intended, but it is a honey jar spell, a type of spell usually used to sweeten people -- that is, to make them ameliorate their hostility, or treat one better, or even to love one.

Your name is not on the list of names, and no ill or jinx was intended for you. You may simply dispose of the materials as you wish and as you feel most comfortable. For numerous examples of how to dispose of ritual remains such as this honey jar in a variety of magically traditional manners, see my web page on Laying Tricks and Disposing of Ritual Remains in the Hoodoo Rootwork Tradition.

Another poster, familiar with Dominican Spanish dialect, clarified the wording of this honey jar bottle spell in a subsequent Usenet post:

Good job, but let me add to it. The Spanish is phonetic and nearly illiterate. Note that some unlettered Dominicans aspirate their S or drop it, and interchange R and L, final R of infinitive dropped completely. Sloppy speech, like a Midwesterner "gonna" instead of "going to." Hence:
"que como son el nombre che cada uno de esta persona se enfrien asi tenga que carma la ira con migo y con mi copate"
should read
"que como es el nombre, que cada uno de estas personas se enfrie asi tenga que calmar la ira conmigo y con mi compadre"

"that everybody named should chill and have to calm down his/her anger against me and my partner"


--M (mephistopheles132002NOSPAM at

I want to thank Andrea for bringing this Dominican variant of the honey jar bottle spell to my attention and Mephistopheles13 for making it understandable. What it demonstrates is that honey jar spells are adaptable to many magical desires, are a feature of Afro-Caribbean culture, can be worked in a number of ways, and are widely popular all around the world.


Nickel Plated Iron Skeleton Key

Because there are no down-home or old timey hoodoo spells for getting HUD, HUD-VASH, or Section 8 Housing (because it din't even exist back in the day), some modern workers will advise clients to treat these subsidised housing cases the same as for anyone who is wanting to move in to a new apartment or house. However, there is an additional issue with such cases, namely the bureaucracy and red tape associated with governmental assistance -- and we do have a hoodoo heritage of spells for breaking through governmental and bureaucratic logjams. So let us put the two ways of working together and come up with a spell for unlocking your Section 8 Housing. In doing this work, you will call upon God's help and ask for compassion from specific people, in an attempt to get someone at the housing agency to act on your behalf.

An adaptation of a classic Southern sweetening trick, this is a sugar jar or sugar box spell with a house key in it, to get you housing assistance. Here's how to make one:

Write your case worker's name on an image of the HUD logo (from their web site) or, better yet, on the case worker's business card, and place it in the bottom of a sugar bowl, a one-pint Mason jar, or one-pound sugar box. Into your sugar, mix a small amount of Cinnamon powder (for money and for "heat" on the agency), Allspice powder (for money), Cloves powder (for friendship and for money), and powdered Five Finger Grass (for the granting of favours).

There should only be enough spice and herb powder in the sugar to lightly speckle it -- not to discolour it, because you will be cooking with it and eating it.



Get a house key (any key -- i prefer the old-fashioned skeleton key type, but any key will do.

Pour the doctored sugar into the jar or box, on top of the agency or case-worker's name. Then insert the key into the sugar, as you would stick a key into a lock in a door. Turn the key, as if you were opening the locked door. As you do this, say Psalms 23. Do this three times per day (all at once or spaced out during the day, for instance at 6:00 AM, Noon, and 6:00 PM). Here is the Psalm, and you don't need to memorize it - you can read it right out of your Bible or print out this web page, if you prefer.


The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul.
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil for thou art with me.
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.
Thou anointest my head with oil.
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, 
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. 
Every day, at least once, taste some of the sugar or flavour your coffee or tea with it, or cook with some of this sugar, saying, "As this sugar is sweet to me, so will [Name] (or [the HUD agency]) be sweet to me and favour my case above all others, coming to my assistance with care, concern, and alacrity" and then call the case-worker's name and recite the Golden Rule from Luke 6:31
LUKE 6:31

And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
As the sugar is taken out, replace it occasionally with new doctored sugar. Keep this going until you are approved for HUD housing.

When you are approved, use all the sugar to bake a cake or a batch of cookies and distribute the sweet treats to anyone who also needs financial assistance of some kind.

Dispose of the petition paper by carrying it to your new home and burying it in the ground or in a potted plant there, with thanks.

Juicy Fruit Gum Packages through the yrears by Wrigley

This spell is simplicity itself. I was taught it by one of my black girlfriends, back in the 1950s in Berkeley, California. It is a schoolgirl's spell to get a friend to like you, but, of course, it can be used in other ways, for love and dating, or to make a teacher like you.

I will tell it as i learned it. The packaging of this gum has changed since then; you're on your own if you need to make changes to the spell because of that.

Buy a package of Juicy Fruit Gum. It is the sweetest gum. Each package has five sticks in it. Each stick is wrapped in its own paper sleeve plus a paper-backed aluminum foil. Take the middle stick out of the package and set it aside. Carefully slide the other four sticks of gum off their papers and unwrap them. Write the name of the person whom you are sweetening on the inside of each paper. Reassemble them carefully. The fifth stick you do not mess with, just cover it with kisses. Put all of the wrapped sticks back in the package. Remember to put the kissed one in the center

When you see the person, offer them a stick of gum. If they accept, make sure you give them the stick you kissed, not one of the four with their name inside. While they open and chew their stick, You take one of the named ones and chew it -- but do NOT chew it so long that the sweetness goes away. Take it out of your mouth and wrap it in the name paper so they cannot see the name. Keep it in your pocket or your purse.

As you find an opportunity, unwrap the paper and stick the wad of gum under their desk. If you share a home-room class, that is the best. You still have three more sticks of gum. Chew them too, the same way -- just enough to enjoy them, but NOT so long that the sweetness goes away. Wrap each one up in its name-paper until you stick it somewhere. If you have several class-periods with them, stick the gum under their desk in as many classes as you can. If you can't stick a wad under their desk, stick it on the floor to the bathroom that they use so they step over it. If you are afraid of getting caught chewing gum in school, chew it home at night and wrap the little balls up in the name-papers so that the next day you can take them to school.

This spell is a bit different because the sweet portion moves from being contained to being uncontained, and it also involves chewing and swallowing. In this way of working, it resembles the kinds of sweetening spells in which you take some of the sugar, jam, syrup, or honey from a sweet bowl or jar and use it in cooking. But the end result -- marking the territory for friendship -- comes from a different spell family -- tricks that are laid out, set out, or deployed for contact.




Many women who are faced with a situation where their baby's father will not pay child support try to hurt the man, or rule him, or control him, but there is a better way, and that is to cause him to WANT to pay what the law says he must pay -- and to love his baby while he pays, as well.

To work the sweet side of a case like this, you can make a honey jar bottle spell on the mama, the baby and the daddy -- all of them in one honey jar. Try to get something personal from each individual -- a hair, for instance. If the daddy is estranged or lives far away, his hair may be hard to capture, but do try to get it -- and if that won't be possible, then get his handwriting, or something he touched, like maybe a fiber from a stuffed animal that he gave to the child.

Put the personal items in a name paper with the mama and the daddy names written 9 times each, side by side in two columns (because they are no longer a couple) and the baby name crossed over both, holding them all together. Then, around and around the names write: "We are family, forever and in all ways, and let no one put this family asunder."

Next, in the corners of the paper, draw four eye-shapes, but just the outlines with no eye-lashes or iris and pupil in the centers. Now, inside each eye-shape, draw a heart (one heart in each eye-shape) and inside each heart, write a dollar sign. Then, using the eye-shapes as a guide, write, in very tiny letters, like the eye-lashes of the eyes, top and bottom, the words "PAY CHILD" (on the top line) and "SUPPORT" (on the bottom). If you do it neatly, it'll look like an eye is in each corner with a heart for the iris of each eye and a dollar sign for the pupil of each eyeball, and the words "PAY CHILD SUPPORT" as the eyelashes of each eye. The meaning of this symbol in each corner is GOD IS WATCHING YOU (the eye shape) -- SO LOVE THE CHILD (the heart) AND PAY THE MONEY (the dollar sign).

After you have prepared the paper, dress it with Pay Me Sachet Powder and put it in a honey jar as explained above. Use a green candle for money or a pink one for the father to care more for the child, and dress it with Pay Me Oil.




This is an old-fashioned sugar spell to bring peace to a family in which two siblings are being kept apart by the quarrelsome spouse of one sibling, who will not allow family members into the house, thus isolating that sibling from the family.

No matter how many people are involved, this spell should be crafted with at least two generations of family member pictures and names, including both living and dead, as explained below.

Print out pictures of all family members about the same size and at the bottom of each picture, write the person's full name and birthdate, if known. These pictures should be no more than 3 inches square, printed on 4 inch square paper.

If you are missing a picture for any family member, then write the missing person's name and birthdate, if known, on a square of paper the same size as the pictures.

You will now literally sew or stitch the siblings together into a little booklet. Use white thread for peace and/or red thread for blood ties. Work slowly and leave the stitches a bit on the loose side, as there will be other pages interleaved into the booklet, as described below.

With each stitch, call the person's names and state their relationship to one another.

Include the parents as the covers for the little booklet, for this is the book of THEIR children, the siblings.



Next, get photos of the children of those siblings, if any.(This would be the third generation.) Stitch the children to the pictures of the siblings, as fold-out pages in the booklet, because these children are the offspring of the siblings. These can be group pictures or individual pictures, connected in a row from oldest to youngest. If any of the siblings has no children, skip this step for that sibling only.

Then, get photos of the spouses of the siblings and stitch them to the far end of the fold-outs of the children, as they are the "other half" of each sibling's group of children -- and they will fold in as a gate-fold. If any sibling has a spouse but no children, stich the sibling's spouse directly to the sibling. If any sibling has no spouse, skip this step for that sibling only.

Additionally, if any of the children of the siblings have children (this would be the 4th generation), stitch their children, followed by their spouses, to their pictures as you did above, but array them going downward instead of side-to-side. Fold those pictures inward as well.

Remember to call each name and bless each person as you stitch the booklet together.

Now get a jar, bowl, or box for sugar, one with a lid. I think that one of these square ribbed refrigerator containers is perfect in size and shape:

Lay down a layer of sugar. Place the booklet into the jar and sprinkle sugar between all the pages and fold-outs. Finish by completely covering the booklet with a layer of sugar.

Place the lid on the container and top it with a small candle stand. Dress a white candle with a combination of oils suitable to your purpose -- in this case selecting any or all of the following: Peaceful Home Oil, Clarity Oil, Tranquility Oil, Healing Oil, Blessing Oil, Stop Gossip Oil, and / or House Blessing Oil.

Burn candles on the container for at least three days, to trick the sugar, then open the lid and remove some of the sugar. Use the sugar to bake cookies for the isolated family member to bring as a gift. If at all possible, these cookies should be made according to a beloved family recipe known to the brother -- that is, a recipe his mother made.

Replace the sugar you removed from the container with fresh sugar, pray for peace, and light another candle on top of the container while you bake the cookies.

Have the friend show up at the brother's home with the gift of cookies. If the friend is not allowed in the house, have her leave the cookies as a gift. I recommend against making cakes or pies in this spell because they are large and unitary and may be refused on the grounds of being "too much." A few small cookies are generally more easy to present as a gift, especially if obviously home-made according to a cherished family recipe.

If this does not succeed the first time, do it again, repeatedly, always using sugar from the container. Eventually the combination of candle magic and tricked-sugar cookie gifts will sweeten the situation.

People who come to conjure through the internet often have no traditional or family background of working with sugar or honey spells, and they often come up with questions about how to do the work that seem, as far as i can see, to be based on ideas unconnected to African American folk magic. Because these questions are asked repeatedly at the Lucky Mojo Forum, i am posting some replies here, in order to be able to point readers here:


You do not "have to" burn a candle on a honey or sugar jar. This is a bogus issue.

Let's look at history: Candles are a fairly recent invention. Prior to candles, people made oil lamps. They also made sweet jars -- but i can find no record that they set oil lamps on top of sweet jars. Just too awkward, i guess.

So what connects candles to sweet jars?

Well, the invention of candles, obviously. So let's look at candle spells.

The invention of candles has given rise to a whole class of magic called, naturally, candle magic. Candle magic is popular, and over the years the burning of candles has become synthesized with other forms of magic. Thus we now see people burning candles while performing rituals of bathing, altar work with lodestones, or burning and manipulating figural candles as a form of doll-baby magic.

Candles are adaptable, and in one form or another, they can fit into many classes of magical practice which did not originally include them. The addition of candles to these spells, however, does not make them candle-spells per se, and the spells can still be worked without the use of candles.


Here's an example of an old Spiritualist candle spell to draw someone to you:

Dress and pray over a white candle named for someone you love, and they will come to you.

Simple, clean, effective -- and the only tools you need are the candle and the dressing oil.

Oh, yes, and a candle stand. And therein lies a world of embellishment: You need a candle stand.

The candle stand can be a traditional candlestick, as shown here. If you want to, and if the candlestick is hollow at the base, you can write your petition on a sugar packet (yes, a regular sugar packet like you would get in a restaurant) and tape it up inside the candle stand. Dress the candle with appropriate spiritual dressing oils and you are good to go.

But let's take this idea a bit further. You may not have a brass candlestick -- and it just so happens that candles are easy to melt onto a chinaware plate to burn. The plate catches the wax drippings, making it a convenient and easily cleaned candle stand.

In the Spiritualist Church, white chinaware, clear glass, white cloths, and white candles are often used as symbols of Spirit. So, in the Spiritual Church, we find people practicing a version of the old white candle drawing spell that, by the addition of a sweetener, has been amplified into sweetening spell.

In this candle spell, the sweetener -- honey, granulated sugar, powdered sugar, sorghum syrup, or molasses -- is poured or sprinkled in a thin ring around a white candle which has been melted to the white plate candle stand. The candle may have been previously loaded with personal concerns of the person whom the work is intended to affect -- a hair will suffice. When the candle is done burning, the plate is ceremonially washed clean.

This spell -- a ring of molasses on a white plate with a white candle in the center -- is a nice, old, 19th century way of performing a sweetening spell. The honey jar is not central to the work. In fact, there is no honey jar, just a candle standing in a ring of sweetener.

So in that version of the spell, the candle is the leading principle of the work and the honey follows.


Now you can see that the candle-on-a-honey-jar form of the spell is a hybrid, that is, is combination of two forms of magic. So let's approach it from the other direction -- from the sweetener side.

Looking back in time, we see many sweetening spells in which there never was -- and still never is -- a candle included in the work.

For instance, we have the sugar bowl. Nobody burns a candle on their sugar bowl, because it's, you know, the lidded bowl that sits on the table that you keep the sugar in for coffee or tea. Instead, you place a prayed-over vanilla bean down in the bottom of the sugar container or you tape a small personal concern such as a fingernail to the bottom of the sugar jar with a tiny petition paper, and you let folks serve their sugar right out of it to sweeten their own coffee or tea. No candle there, and there never will be a candle there.

Then we have the spell family in which living plants are set to growing out of sugared or honeyed red onions or red apples buried in soil. No candles there -- the living plants spread the spell abroad and grow from the petition paper and personal concerns buried within the soil. Again, no candle.

So, looking at this type of work strictly from the sweetening side, candles are optional additions: We start with a sweetener, and we get something personal of the person, and we bury it in our chosen sweet substance.



When i was young, i was not taught to use tea lights on a sugar or honey jar. I was taught to either use no candle at all or to burn a free-standing candle. That was the way the folks who taught me worked back in the 1960s. One reason for this is that tea lights were not something everybody had back then -- they were only used, as their name implies, for keeping tea warm or under fondue pots. Not too many of my friends were that high-toned, and tea lights had not made the move to short-term "mood lighting" that they now enjoy. In those days, household candles, dinner tapers, and birthday candles were much more common and you could buy them in the dime store or in a candle shop. And in the candle shops you could also buy figural candles, especially designed for use in magical works. I wouldn't even have known where to find a tea light back then, honestly.

Nowadays tea lights, glass-encased votive candles, and tall glass-encased vigil lights are much more common than they were in my younger days -- but i still don't use them myself -- and here is why: If you use contained candles on sugar, jam, or honey jars, you will soon learn that the wax is in its own container. Your working will not embrace your sweet jar with melted wax for the purpose of candle wax divination. In other words, you will be doing the work, but you won't see the measure of your success.



Because i personally am gifted to use ceromancy -- wax divination -- as a check on my work, i prefer the drippy, free-standing candles, but that's just me. If reading wax is not important to you, this will not be an issue for you. I was taught to use the 6" household candles that come in various colours, and they are most excellent for reading, but if you want a small, quick-burning light, try a 4" altar light instead. It will burn for about an hour, and if you need to extinguish it and to burn it in sections, you can lick your fingers and pinch out the flame, a procedure that old-timers always recommend because it does not "kill" the spell like blowing out the flame does, but rather keeps it "on hold" until you come back and relight the wick.

Vigil lights (8-inch tall glass encased candles) are not recommended for use on sugar or honey jars for another reason, one that has more to do with physics than with magic: They do not embrace the jar with wax, and they are also simply too tall, heavy, and unstable to balance safely on top of a small jar. If they get knocked over, you may have a major fire on hand.

However, if you are working your sweetening job according to one of the old-fashioned open or non-container methods -- say, a ring of raspberry jam mixed with your menstrual blood on a white plate to draw sexual relations -- then putting a vigil light at the center of that ring makes perfect sense -- and when you are finished, you can remove the vigil light, put fresh flowers in the glass container, and you will have clean jam with no wax in it that you can carefully wash off the plate and use in the preparation of a magical recipe for food or add to a hoodoo spiritual bath.

Finally, if you only have a tea light, and you are determined to use it, at least take time to dress it. Pull it apart -- the candle out of the cup, and the wick out of the wax, if it is made to come part that way. Then, if the cup is aluminum, inscribe your prayer inside it with a dull pencil. If it is a plastic cup, write your wish inside with a Sharpie marker. Oil the wick and the candle and put it back together in the cup. Now you have a dressed tea light and you are good to go!


A sugar bowl or sugar box is open from the get-go, so why would there be a "rule" that opening a honey jar "ruins it?

I dont see any logic behind the question, Maybe folks are confusing sweet spells with mojo bags, which are usually kept tied and hidden from sight, to be refreshed or remade once a year. Maybe they think of sugar or honey jars as similar to vinegar bottles, whch are often (although not always) kept sealed until they are buried or poured out.

Anyway, whatever the reason, this is one of the most common questions we get at the Luck Mojo Forum.

So, to reply: Remember, you are going to be able to use that prayed-over honey to taste and pray over some more, to cook with, to make a bath-scrub, or to add to bath water. If the level of honey or sugar gets low, you can top it up with more sweetener.




A frequent point of confusion about sweetening work is the necessity of something to connect the work to the person you are trying to sweeten. Of course it is traditional to use some sort of magical link to the person you are working on -- but what it is, and how "personal" a personal concern it should be, are matters that can trouble the minds of those unfamiliar with this work.

"Can i make a honey or sugar jar for love if i don't have anything personal of my target?"

Sadly, this is often a pathetic plea for love-influence over someone you really don't know well or with whom you have very little contact or intimacy.

Do it, but expect to get results in proportion to the intimacy of the item that represents the person. In other words, if you are woking for love and marriage, you will want something intimate to signify the desired intimacy of the relationship. Sexual fluids, nail clippings, and hairs are the items most often employed.


If we have nothing of the person's body -- that is, no hair, no sexual fluids, finger nails, skin-scrapings, or sweat -- we ask ourselves what next-best item we can use to create a spiritual link with them and thus affect them as we work.

"But what if it's a just a judge or a boss i want to sweeten -- do i really need to get his pubic hair?

Good question.

When it comes to a business or legal case, we really do not need to get all intimate on the person we are trying to sweeten. A piece of their writing is fine. Their signature is, of course, the central expression of their self in their writing, so a signature is always good to use. Failing that, a photo or a business card may provide a good form of contact. Just their name written on paper will also do.

"Do i cut or tear their signature off the paper -- or should use the whole page of paper?"

This is a non-starter of a question. You are making a honey or sugar jar, not entombing manuscripts or file folders of correspondence in honey!

Your objective is to capture a piece of that person's spiritual essence, not to build a giant leak-proof vault filled with everything the guy ever wrote and then pour a tanker truck load of honey into it.

Conjure is not a role-playing game. There are traditions, and while it is true that a few very firm rules are embedded in those traditions, for the most part the spell work is performed through contact with spirit, not through the exercise of rules. By failing to understand the tradition, and looking for rules as a condition of success or failure, folks can lose track of the point of the work.

A little smear of jam on a name, and the name wrapped in tin foil has won many a case. I have seen it happen.




In 2011, questions about using sugar, jam, honey, and syrup spells as spells of coercion and domination began to erupt at the Lucky Mojo Forum, probably because the author of some web site or book had recommended pouring hoodoo oils -- and specifically Essence of Bend Over Oil -- into a honey jar to rule and control a lover. The question spread out and multiplied, and i was also asked about using Controlling Oil, Compelling Oil, Domination Oil, I Dominate My Man Oil, I Dominate My Woman Oil, and I Can You Can't Oil in sweetening spells

This idea is wrong on two counts:

First, Essence of Bend Over Oil and all the rest are coercive forumlas. They are not formulas used for sweetening, for harmonious pleasure, for reconciliation, for peaceful conjugation, or for forgiveness. They are used to dominate and over-ride another person. Therefore, their very nature conflicts with the intention of a sugar jar, jelly jar, sugar packet, or honey jar.

Because a coercive conjure oil doesn't really have the same sort of intention as a sugar bowl, sweet jar, sugar box, honey jar, or honey-apple container spell, i suggest that you would be better advised to consider using an Influence Honey Jar Spell Kit.

Second, why on Earth would someone pour dressing oils into honey?

Remember, hoodoo conjure oils are used to anoint candles -- and as you learned above, a candle magic spell is not even a necessary component of a sweetening spell. I mean, candles are great, and their power can add some push to a sugar spell, but the real reason to bring conjure oils into a sweetening spell would be to dress the petition paper or to dress the candles.

Furthermore, depending on which essential oils and which magic herbs are used in making a given dressing oil, the resultant mixture may be toxic or poisonous to eat -- but the honey or sugar is supposed to be TASTED while you make the spell; in fact, eating some of the honey is part and parcel of the work ("As honey is sweet to me, so will So-And-So be sweet to me" -- et cetera).

Also, since many people take out and use the jam, jelly, sugar, syrup, or honey from the jar or bottle to prepare magical foods for their loved ones as part of their spell casting, contaminating the honey or sugar with potentially toxic essential oils is counter to their magical interests.


People who try to learn hoodoo via the internet tend to lack a basic structural understanding of conjure. They see small, bright "rules" or "dos and don'ts" and seek to apply them to entire classes of spiritual work where they are not applicable. One question that comes up in this way concerns a person who has set a honey jar with a candle on it, and has been lighting small candles in runs -- when, out of the blue, a family member or friend shows up and sees the jar and the candle. Now what? Is the spell "ruined"? Has the jar been "killed"?

Well, i know of no traditional, old-time worker who would say that a honey jar must be worked in secret or it is killed.

The honey spell with a candle on it is a hybrid of two types of spells. It is a sweet spell and it is a candle spell at the same time. This is a fairly common hybrid, but it is a hybrid. So let's look at the notion of "privacy" or "secrecy" in the two spell families from which it derives:

Perhaps the querent somehow confused instructions about mojo hands -- they must not be seen or touched by others or they are killed -- with either candle spells or sweet spells, and now worries that letting someone see a honey jar spell with a candle on it inherently destroys the work ... but such is not the case.


Five Pound Hney Can

Around 2005, the use of honey in sweetening spells -- rather than sugar, syrup, jam, or chewing gum -- became a fad that swept the internet. Lots of people were posting about it, and as a result, i began to get lots of questions from people who asked me if the sweetener "has to be honey." I pointed them to this page, answered as many questions as i could about the history of sweet spells, and hoped that they would understand the wide amount of variation we can see in even the most traditional of these spells.

In late 2014 and early 2015, the pendulum swung the other way. A Facebook user with a mad-on for me claimed that i, cat yronwode, had invented the use of honey in hoodoo sweetening spells and that this was "fake hoodoo."

That statement is an appeal to pseudo-orthodoxy and to the top-down rule of authority over community. It has nothing to do with me. Someone wants to be the Big Important Voice of Pseudo-Orthodox Authority and is claiming special powers of discernment. He or she tried to catch me up in a social conflict mess, giving me the unasked-for role of Opposing Pseudo-Orthodoxy Contender, but the whole dispute is that person's mess, not mine. I don't play that way. Somebody has given little old me an awful lot of credit here for inventing something which i did not invent, and then used that as an excuse for hating on me in a really illogical way -- but the truth is, i don't deserve either the credit or the blame.

Flow Blue Sugar Bowl

I am an inclusive person. I don't lose track of history (far from it!) and i don't claim that i know the limits of what is and is not "allowed" in the long-standing and wide-ranging folk-cultural history of conjure. So what am i saying here? I am saying that if you read from the top of this page on down, you will see a New Orleans honey label from the late 19th century, a sugar box of the same era, and other old labels for grocery goods such as canned honey and fig jam. You will have learned a number of ways to use many kinds of sweeteners in magical works -- and, incidentally, if you read the the Dominican honey jar from 2003 on this page, you will also have come to see that there never has been either a preference for -- or a proscription against -- the use of honey in African Diasporic or African American folk magic. In fact, if chewing gum is "traditional in hoodoo" -- and i consider it so because its use probably goes back more than 100 years in America -- then you have the rebuttal to this Pseudo-Orthodoxy foolishness right there in your hands.

As i see it, folk magic is adaptive. It always has been and it always will be. Before there was sugar, people used honey and tree saps of various types to sweeten their foods. After sugar refining was invented on a commercial scale, lots of people used both cane sugar and beet sugar in cooking. And along with refined sugar came its by-products, jams and jellies. At first these were made in the home, but very soon, as the railroads blazed new trails across the country, grocery stores sprang up in every small town, and then came the packaging and distribution of all of these things, and we got cane-sugar syrups, maple syrups, powdered sugar, and sugar cubes. What you've got, you use it.

Now, what do i mean by "adaptive"? Well, i mean that i really don't think it is important to the larger world if your great-great-great-grand-pappy's spirit appears at the foot of your bed cussing up a storm about these here "modern so-called hoodoos" 'cause he wants to tell that "in the old days we used tin cut-outs and none of these danged photographs and especially not none of these here newfangled digital electronic photographs." People have been using tintypes and photos in hoodoo since tintypes and photos were invented, in the mid 19th century. You gonna give up photos 'cause your great-great didn't have a camera? Really? I doubt that.

Antique Fig Jam Preserves Label

And interestingly but not-so-coincidentally, the replacement of tin cut-outs with photos almost exactly parallels the replacement of honey and tree-syrups with steel cans of honey, chipboard boxes of granulated, cubed, and powdered sugar, glass bottles of syrup, and the extension of sugar into jams, jellies, candies, and chewing gum. All these new packaging and distribution technologies were part of the same Industrial Revolution.

No culture stands still, and no culture stands alone. We are all in this world together, and we can all watch time unfold. A natural sweetener that was once the very epitome of "down home" and rural conjure -- honey from a bee-tree -- became obsolete when those industrial-era Victorian iron grinding machines made grain and cane sweeteners cheaper than honey. Maybe nowadays, with the bees all dying off due to pesticides and people reproducing like rabbits and drinking their way to death on high fructose corn syrup, our old-fashioned natural honey has re-emerged as someone's idea of "upscale" -- but it is the person with the short-line view of history who is making the mistake here, because "authenticity" always fades into the past, and it all comes down to where you draw the line on what is "traditional" and what is "innovative."

I know for a fact that hoodoo did not petrify into Orthodoxy in the 1600s, 1700s, 1800s, 1900s, or 2000s. I know for a fact that our magical culture is still evolving and changing today. And here's the thing -- these same folks who are claiming now that honey is "fake" are the same ones who used to go on and on about their "country" ancestors down on the farm and how no "city slickers" can tell them how to practice hoodoo. Folks -- i hate to break it to you, but your country ancestors either stole honey out of bee-trees or they kept a hive or two of bees.

The ABC and XYZ of Bee Culture

How can i show you that the rather insane rant-and-rave of 2014-2015 was wrong and that honey has an authentic history in African American hoodoo? Well, by reprinting an old spell from a black woman who took time to describe and write down the spell-casting practices of black folks. So, here, in her own words, is the celebrated novelist and folklorist Zora Neale Hurston's description of a honey-and-sugar spell that she saw in practice in New Orleans, Louisiana, in the 1930s. It was described in her book Mules and Men, first published in 1935, which itself is a compiled reprint of earlier articles that Hurston had written for The Journal of American Folklore. I shall present it here as it was passed along by my good friend Deacon Millett, in his own book Hoodoo Honey and Sugar Spells, first published in 2013:

          Hurston studied with Reverend Father Joe Watson, "The Frizzly Rooster."
          In describing his practice, she wrote, "There was one jar in the kitchen
          filled with honey and sugar. All the 'sweet' works were set in this jar.
          That is, the names and the thing desired were written on paper and
          thrust into this jar to stay. Already four or five hundred slips of paper
          had accumulated in the jar. There was another jar called the 'break up'
          jar. It held vinegar with some unsweetened coffee added. Papers were
          left in this one also."

So, there you have it (if you doubted it): a jar of honey mixed with sugar, doubling the sweetness, in the practice of a well-known Spiritualist rootdoctor in New Orleans in 1935. End of story. Almost....

I guess that only leaves one further issue: Why did i, catherine yronwode, get tagged in the Big Important Voice of Pseudo-Orthodox Authority's mess? Why was my name attached to the crazed rant about honey being "fake hoodoo"? Why was i accused of "inventing" this seeming heresy?

Well, first, to be honest, there were elements of anti-semitism in the rants, and i am Jewish. Second, there were elements of race-hatred in the rants -- and i am fair-skinned. But i also think that my name was brought into the Big Important Voice of Pseudo-Orthodox Authority's mess as an advocate of honey because i have for many years related the story that back when i was living down on the farm, back when i became a bee-keeper -- back when i bought my very own copy of "The ABC and XYZ of Bee Culture" and sent away to the A. I. Root Company for supplies -- i personally started using honey in addition to sugar and jam and jelly and chewing gum, and i personally came to prefer it for long-term candle spells because honey is a preservative. (Look that up online if you don't take my word for that; if you don't understand the magical implications of a preservative, just ask.)

I never stopped using sugar though, or recommending it, and i still prefer it for spells in which ease of cooking with the sweetener or eating it after working it are important. There are many more cooking recipes that use sugar than honey.

Honey, on the other hand, is great for making bath scrubs -- you ladies know what i am talking about -- and so honey that has been worked in a spell is very fine for that purpose, and i recommend it highly. In fact, a sugar-and-honey scrub is quite a treat, if you've a mind to try one.

And the chewing gum? Yes, i still use that too, only these days i use natural chicle Glee Gum instead of Juicy Fruit. And now we have sugar packets and honey packets and packets of -- Lord help us! -- artificial no-calorie sweeteners in restaurants and office break rooms. I didn't invent those either, but i sure do know how -- and teach how -- to use all of them. Hit me up on the Lucky Mojo Customer Forum some time for full details.

After i stopped keeping bees, i continued to provide spells that listed all of the above sweeteners, and i also made a choice to support my local bee keepers in a time of economic crisis by carrying small honey jars in my shop. I chose the small hexagonal jars rather than the big old quart size jars because i hate seeing food wasted -- you only need a little jar of any sweetener -- but i did not invent this way of working, nor its use in African American magical culture. And i myself also use and prescribe loose sugar and sugar cubes as well, where i think they will be more effective and easier to use -- for instance, in the home-sweetening work at the dinner table of a family that keeps a sugar bowl out for sugaring coffee.

Folks, this little exercise in haterism is not good cultural history, not an accurate description of my work or my teaching, and not good magic. It also is just not very convincing. It looks like an angry cry for attention and subservience from an unnamed and unknown Authority Figure.

God bless such people and their angry minds. May they find peace and sweetness in their own sugar bowls.
