The term "voodoo hoodoo" is a term used by Louisiana locals to describe the unique variety of Creole Voodoo found in New Orleans. It is NOT a term I made up, contrary to some ignorant, self-proclaimed experts on New Orleans traditions. In this book, you will find a plethora of authentic Voodoo and hoodoo rituals for love, justice, gambling luck, luck in court, prosperity, health, crossing, hexes, curse removal, and much more. The author has stripped the shroud of secrecy that has always surrounded Voodoo, and provides detailed instructions on everything from making gris-gris, magickal oils, talismans, and powders, to casting hexes.

This book is the real stuff ... the “Secret” of the Law of Attraction revolution, the B.B. King of the music industry. This, my friend, is the Real Mojo of the metaphysical industry!

“Voodoo Hoodoo” is the unique variety of Creole Voodoo found in New Orleans. The Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook is a rich compendium of more than 300 authentic Voodoo and Hoodoo recipes, rituals, and spells for love, justice, gambling luck, prosperity, health, and success.

Cultural psychologist and root worker Denise Alvarado, who grew up in New Orleans, draws from a lifetime of recipes and spells learned from family, friends, and local practitioners. She traces the history of the African-based folk magic brought by slaves to New Orleans, and shows how it evolved over time to include influences from Native American spirituality, Catholicism, and Pentecostalism. She shares her research into folklore collections and 19th- and 20th- century formularies along with her own magical arts.

The Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook includes more than 100 spells for Banishing, Binding, Fertility, Luck, Protection, Money, and more. Alvarado introduces readers to the Pantheon of Voodoo Spirits, the Seven African Powers, important Loas, Prayers, Novenas, and Psalms, and much, much more, including:
  • Oils and Potions: Attraction Love Oil, Dream Potion, Gambler’s
  • Luck Oil, Blessing Oil
  • Hoodoo Powders and Gris Gris: Algier’s Fast Luck Powder, Controlling Powder, Money Drawing Powder
  • Talismans and Candle Magic
  • Curses and Hexes

Exactly what I wanted to write myself, but...Denise Alvarado beat me to it!

I bought this book from Denise's website "The Mystic Voodoo" along with the companion CD (which has extra occult texts and material not in the book), and couldn't be happier with my purchase. While the term "Voodoo Hoodoo" might throw off some viewers, the writer is clear in the proper definitions of both Voodoo AND Hoodoo early on in the book. This is chocked full of information regarding the Loa, Catholic saints, magic, folk remedies, superstitions, recipes for occult oils, rootwork and just about everything else. A great introduction to both New Orleans Voodoo and Hoodoo, a must-buy for those interested in these paths.
