I am now offering a more traditional option for Rootwork. This is a more authentic and straightforward type of working, and it can be customized to any need, goal, intend, desire, or situation, just like the other workings that I offer, only this working uses an all natural beeswax candle dressed with my botanical powder blends, petition written on natural brown paper, and a selected Bible verse appropriate for your circumstances.
This type of working is about getting back to basics, back to the roots, to the core of the matter and heart of the situation with focus on the power of simplicity.
Hoodoo has become somewhat modernized in recent years, which can be a good thing in many ways. Modern problems often require modern solutions, but sometimes we need to get back to basics. And by basic, I don’t mean that in the sense of the word that you would find in Urban Dictionary, “only interested in things mainstream, popular, and trending”. I mean basic in the sense of getting back to basics. Down to the roots. Old-school Hoodoo. Closer to the way things were done in eras gone by.
Candles are a way to focus your intention, and attention. Nowdays, everyone wants the most flashiest elaborate candle setup, altars, and methods. Those can be really great. Colors and shapes can focus your attention and make your intent clear to the powers that be, whether you refer to such as Spirit, the Universe, Source, God, the Goddess, or something else, depending on your path or tradition you follow. But sometimes we need to get back down to the roots, and many prefer to do so. Back to the basics, the core, the heart of Hoodoo. And this applies to whatever type of magick or spiritual practice we are talking about, whether it is folk magic, granny magic, Rootwork, Hoodoo, Conjure, New Orleans Voodoo. So let’s not get hung up on labels too much.
I tend to imagine my Great Grandmother, in her own time, with methods and ingredients that were available to her.
Have you ever wondered why some people prefer to use brown paper when making their name papers and petitions, or why some people say to tear it and never use scissors on it? Well, my thoughts are that I know back then, in the country and the south, paper was for writing letters or for kids in school (remember Big Chief tablets?). It wasn’t something you wanted to waste, and sometimes it wasn’t available or affordable at all. I can remember how my Granny and Grandad lived, with simple means, so I know the same is true if not more so with my Great Grandmother and Great Grandfather. Groceries were packaged in brown paper bags, and meats and dry goods came from the general store wrapped in brown paper. Scissors were for sewing and were not to be dulled by using them for other things, lest you risk Granny’s wrath. So this easily explains why some spiritual methods were done the way they were back then.
When I do spiritual work for my own situations, I don’t prefer fancy shapes or colors of candles. I prefer beeswax. Why? Because it is the purest of the pure. It’s connected to nature, and it is a blank slate for your intention. I don’t prefer synthetic materials or colors. I prefer all-natural and believe therein is much power. Although, I do like to use scissors on my petitions. I have absolutely nothing against colored soy or paraffin candles, or the interesting shapes that make work interesting. I love those types of candles and make them myself. But I definitely like to be able to offer this old-school option to you, especially since it is how I prefer to perform my own personal work.
We have become so focused on what is trendy and popular at the moment, that sometimes we lose sight of what used to be good, or even better. I know, it’s easy to do. So I wanted to share my preferred methods with you that I use for my own personal work, so that you can do the same at home.
Our beeswax candles are handmade, by me, from natural yellow triple filtered beeswax, with hemp beeswax coated wicks. The fixing blends I use are made from 100% natural powdered roots, herbs, leaves, petals, berries, and barks. They contain no base powders such as cornstarch or any other powders or fillers.
For this working, I use my Candle Fixing Powders, which contain all the power the herb and root blends do, because they are the same ingredients and retain all the properties in a concentrated form.
In other words, there is simply a whole lot of real Hoodoo in my candles. And you will be able to tell the difference and the power will be evident.
