Wicked Wednesday: Ghost Water and Damnation

It’s almost Halloween so make this Wicked Wednesday the best (or worst) one yet by banishing evil spirits, cavorting with ghosts, and damning your enemies. Woo hoo! It’s the Witching Hour!!!

wicked witch of the westDragon’s Blood Floor Wash

This floor wash is used to drive away negative energy, banish evil spirits, and eliminate anger directed at you. It also creates a barrier of protection.

-1 cup dragon’s blood powder

-1 cup High John the Conqueror root

-1 cup quinta maldicion herb

-1 cup kosher rock salt

-1 cup espanta muerto herb

-Florida Water

Start by scrubbing the back of the house, making your way out to the front step to drive away evil spirits, anger or general negative energy. It is best to start before dawn. Throw the remaining water to the east at or before sunrise.

Ghost Water

To make spiritual water specifically for communing with the dead, go to a cemetery at midnight and bring a bottle of spring water. Place the bottle of water on the grave of a person who represents the deceased you wish to speak with. For example, if it is a child, place the bottle on a child’s grave. If you are seeking assistance from the dead for a particular purpose, such as protection, then place the bottle on the grave of a known police officer. Allow the water to stay on the grave until just before dawn. When you remove the bottle, be sure to pay the spirit with a small bottle of rum and three pennies before you leave.

Damnation Spell

The purpose of this spell is to undo your enemies and tae the power to harm you away from them.

Take two drachmas of the damnation powders and two drachmas of the water powders. Make a package of them and send it to the home of the one who has spoken badly of you or treated you poorly. This will cause damnation and trouble for the enemy.

Wicked Wednesday: Goblin Sweep

Wicked cool, it’s wicked Wednesday again. You know what really bothers me? Goblins. They are so annoying. Here is a great “humane” way to get rid of one. And then, get yourself some cash so you can spend it on glittery things that the goblins might have taken otherwise.

From Mrs. B’s Guide to Household Witchery (used with permission) :


While you may consider goblins to be generally troublesome spirits that you would not want to invite into your home, it is possible that one will take up residence without being invited. If you leave the goblin small gifts, you can often win his favor and good behavior. To rid your home of an unwanted goblin whose mischief is becoming too much, strew flaxseeds across the floor of your kitchen several nights in a row. The goblin will feel compelled each night to pick up the flax, seed by seed, keeping him from committing any trickery. After a few nights, he’ll be so frustrated that he will move on to another house where he can get back to his dastardly ways unimpeded. A female goblin is usually referred to as a “hag” or “crone.”

Money Draw Sweep

When you need a little extra cash to cover your expenses, and you’ve tried everything else to no avail. Try a money draw sweep and watch for unusual opportunities.

-1 part allspice

-1 part cinnamon

-1 part nutmeg

-Cornmeal base

Wicked Wednesday: The Pesky Neighbors

wicked witch of the west

It’s basically Halloween, right? I mean everyday is Halloween for me!! But to REALLY get you in the mood, I’ve got some Wicked Wednesday plans.  Watch here for a spell or two or three to try out your witchy powers. Don’t expect a harm-none situation, either. I walk the line, people! Don’t cross it.

This week, I’ll give you two spells from Denise Alvarado’s Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook (used with permission):

To Get Rid of a Troublesome Neighbor

Light a black candle and dress with castor oil. Write the neighbor’s name on a piece of paper along with the word “goodbye.” Place the paper under the candle. Mix powdered mud dauber’s nest with a graveyard dirt and throw it at the neighbor’s front door. Recite Psalms 74,101, and 109 three times each and let the candle burn out. Dispose of the candle remains at a crossroads, along with three pennies.

To Make People Love You

Take nine lumps of starch, mime of sugar, and nine teaspoons of steel dust. Wet it all with Jockey Club cologne. Take nine pieces of ribbon, blue, red, and yellow. I suggest using wide ribbon for the blue and red ribbons, and thin ribbon for the yellow. Take a teaspoonful of the mixture, put it on a ribbon, and tie it in into paket (a small bundle). As you do, call out the name of the person or persons you want to love you. Wrap the paket with yellow ribbon, and as you do so, call out the person’s name. Do this nine times, making nine bags wrapped with yellow thread
