Hoodoo is an eclectic blend of African traditions, Native American herbalism, Judeo-Christian ritual, and magical healing. Tracing Hoodoo's magical roots back to West Africa, Stephanie Rose Bird provides a fascinating history of this nature-based healing tradition and gives practical advice for applying Hoodoo magic to everyday life. Learn how sticks, stones, roots, and bones--the basic ingredients in a Hoodoo mojo bag--can be used to bless the home, find a mate, invoke wealth, offer protection, and improve your health and happiness.
