Special Washes

Attract and hold your family at home with some unique spiritual & New Age special washes inherited from the Hoodoo practice which combines elements of African and European magical, religious, and witchcraft traditions and a little bit of the Native American use of herbal and botanical wisdom.

What is known in the southern United States as Hoodoo is simply a traditional form of magic, not a religion, which uses the occult and supernatural elements of the Christian, Jewish and European practices. In fact, many patent medicines and home-made potions, baths, and floor washes were aimed at Hoodoo practitioners and more than one had gained commercial success.

Some of the Hoodoo special washes were originally used for reasons completely unrelated to the meaning that they have nowadays. The use of baths and floor washes in Hoodoo generally involves the creation of infusions by straining specific herbs into water. Then, the special water is given as a bath complement to the person looking for jinx removal, protection and spiritual purifications.

Often these herbal mixtures might be added to water and used to wash the floor of a house or place of work to bring blessings or improve business.

A ritual floor washing should always start at the back of the premises and end at the front door step. For the best results, wash your floors, corners of the rooms, closets, doorsteps, and spray a little on the walls, fabrics and furniture. To dispose of the left-over wash water, throw it out the front door or into the front yard, toward the East, if possible.

For protective reasons, you are able to add these washes to your clothing by diluting some in water while using your washing machine - recommendation: Be careful with the colors.

Chinese Wash: Basically, the Chinese Wash is an herbal floor wash used in rites of protection, in spiritual house-cleansings, unjinxing, and to maintain marital fidelity, among others and it was a standard commercial product that acquired an occult and magical reputation among African-American root workers.

Use 1-3 tablespoonful of this wash in a bucket of water depending on the strength of the job you need to do. Scrub the floors from the top floor to the bottom floor and from the back of each floor to the front, ending at last at the front doorstep.

Four Thieves Vinegar: For years, this special wash has been related to death, and it is used as a mosquito repellent due to its strong odor. Now, it's popular for personal protection, to get immunity, to provoke dissent, and to get rid of enemies.

Some recipes call for red wine vinegar, others say cider vinegar. Mixed with herbs-- rosemary (strong antiseptic), wormwood (bitter herb), lavender (contains pleasant scent), peppermint (with volatile oil), rue (bitter herb), and sage (has lymphatic properties) -- some added thyme, and garlic.

Peace Water: As its name suggests, Peace Water works on the minds of those persons we deal with, rendering their temper and it is also used as a protective artifact. This water-clear liquid emulates three different herbal essences, one of which is quite similar to Florida Water. Sprinkle it in the corners to ensure only kind people and good spirits enter to your home.

War Water: Sincerely, I'm not bringing tips on ways to do evil stuffs, and since War Water can be for enemy tricks, to declare occult war, and to trouble someone, I'll let you investigate this artifact by yourselves. I just want to mention that it is said that War Water is also a European contribution to Hoodoo. Please, do not try to prepare or use this special wash.
