Collection: Voodoo and Hoodoo

What is Voodoo and Hoodoo?

 From Brick Dust to herbs we have your Hoodoo and Voodoo items.


During slavery enslaved Africans were forced to become Christian which resulted in a blend of African and Christian spiritual practices that shaped Hoodoo. As a result, Hoodoo was and continues to be practiced in some Black churches in the United States.


Hurston explained her initiation into Hoodoo included wrapped snakeskins around her body, and lying on a couch (sofa) for three days nude so she could have a vision and acceptance from the spirits....


Voodoo and Hoodoo are African American spiritual practices that have gained widespread popularity in recent years. Despite the similarities in their names, the two practices are distinct and have different origins and beliefs. Both practices involve the belief in spiritual energies and the use of ritual objects, but they use these tools in different ways.


Voodoo, also known as vodou, is a religion that originated in West Africa and was brought to the Americas by enslaved Africans. It has roots in Haitian, Cuban, and Louisiana traditions and is often associated with the use of dolls or effigies for spellcasting or healing. Voodoo beliefs also incorporate the idea of spirits or deities that can be communicated with through ritual and offerings.


Hoodoo, on the other hand, is a collection of African American magical practices that originated in the southern United States. It is often associated with the use of herbs, candles, and roots for spellcasting and has a strong focus on sympathetic magic. Hoodoo practitioners believe that they can influence the present or future by manipulating objects that are connected to a desired outcome. This can include using a person's hair, nails, or clothing in a spell.


While voodoo and hoodoo have different origins and practices, they both share a belief in the power of ritual objects and spiritual energy. They also both have a rich history and cultural significance, making them fascinating and complex topics to explore.
