Herbal Health Poppet

This a poppet spell for healing designed to improve your own personal health, though you could use it to direct healing energy to other people if you wanted (you’ll need their hair though).

White fabric or felt
Sewing stuff (needle, thread, scissors)
A piece of hematite or jade (or both)
Some of the following herbs:
angelica root
St. John’s Wort
Strands of your own hair
Blue marker or pen
Make a poppet or small doll out of the white material, sew it up leaving a whole for stuffing. Wrap the strands of hair around the stone, and stuff it into the head of the doll. If the hair is short, don’t worry about it, just put the hairs and crystals in the head part together. Stuff the rest of the doll with the herbs, and sew it shut.

In the middle of the chest, draw a circle, then a heart within the circle. Now you have a health charm to leave on your altar or in a quiet spot, until you’ve gotten over your illness.

POPPETS: Curse/hex

I personally do not believe in a 3 or a 10 fold law. But I feel it necessary to make this statement for those who do. What I believe is, we have a responsibility to be the best we can be. Help where you can, love when you can and live within your means so you don’t have to rely on anyone else. I also believe that what you put out, you deserve to get back. It doesn’t always work out that way, especially for the nice guys. However, if someone hurts you or yours, paying them back does not come with backlash. (That is my belief) With that: it’s still a good idea to make sure that they deserve a curse work, especially if you are inclined to feel guilty for things you do, later on. That said let’s get down to business.
A poppet, as you already know is an effigy (doll) crafted with intent to resemble a specific target. What and how you construct your dollie is up to you. Some mediums include, but are not limited to, wax, cloth, sticks, clay, mud, yarn etc… once you choose this you can figure out what to stuff it with. If you can get a belonging from the target, hair, nail clippings, even a picture, that makes it especially easy. However it’s not mandatory. If you don’t have anything of theirs, simply write their full name and date of birth on paper and add to the stuffings. The crafting of the effigy is the easy part, you can figure that out, make it in the best likeness of the person you can, and don’t forget to “baptize” (name) the doll. It is as simple as saying “As I have made you I name you _______.
Let’s talk instead about the guts, and other good stuff instead.
Do some research on herbs and choose the ones that suit your desires the best.
Some good hex herbs are: (this is in no way a complete list, so dig around.)

—citation for herbal list: provided by the famed Lady Elaine, Kitchen Witch & Witchcraft Practitioner Extraordinaire;

Ague weed: Causes ones enemies to become extremely confused.

Aloes: Traditionally used to invoke demons. It is said to Soak aloes in a bottle of black cat oil for 9 days, on the 10th night anoint the forehead with the oils and the altar. The demon should appear to do ones bidding.

Asafoetida: Used in black magick for casting hexes on a person. Sometimes referred to as the devil’s incense asafoetida is burned to force someone to leave you alone. (Also called devil dung, it is foul smelling, be warned😂)

Balmony: A plant in the figwort family that is ground and used for hexing.

Bladderwrack: When placed near an enemies bathroom it is said to cause that enemy to be stricken with irritation of the urinary tract. ( an be used in a poppet)

Blood Root: If you are looking for a substitute for human blood use this blood root in your dollie. It can also be thrown on a witches doorstep to return a spell back onto them.

Blueberry: Causes an enemy strife when thrown on his doorstep, or used in a poppet.

Boneset: To burn as an incense and chant to use during curses.

Cinquefoil: Burn over a candle wax image of an enemy to cause him discomfort.

Coconuts: hollow out the coconut and fill with snakeroot. It can be used as the doll’s head or even
It’s torso. Place it in a flaming pit and as it roasts your enemies health will decline.

Cruel Man of the Woods: If a piece of this is hidden on your enemies self, or added to an effigy, it will cause them great pain IF they have previously harmed you.

Henbane: In Greek mythology the dead of Hell were known to be crowned with henbane as they walked helplessly beside the river Styx. All parts of this root is poisonous and boiling or drying does not rid it of its toxicity, so it should never be used by the amateur magician.

Knot Weed: To get rid of ones enemy, stuffed into a black cloth or voodoo doll and sew up, then bury the doll. It is also used with balmony herb in curses.

Lemon Verbena: Causes great trouble between lovers. When scattered at the doorway or sewn into a pair of dolls of the couple, great discord will ensue and the two will become bitter enemies

Mustard Seed: the seed of strife and discord. Leave it at ones doorstep, or in a dollie. particularly black mustard seed.

Patchouli: sickens enemies when used in chants and spells.

Poke Root: A conjure ball or poppet can be made in the name of Satan from the leaves and root, it is then placed into a bag, glass jar or container and then left where the enemy will find it. This is done so that he will panic and be caused anxiety making him more prone to accident and injury befalling him.

Poppy Seed: Causes couples to argue.

Rue: Although it is great protection for the owner in turn rue placed near another person or in a voodoo baby, puts a great hex on them. Since it is not a powerful black magic herb it is used to simply frustrate or agitate the person rather than causing serious harm or injury.

Slippery Elm: Used to separate a married couple when doll is buried near their home.

Tormentilla: To cause distress, harm and discord to a foe, use in a poppet, or sprinkle this on a picture of her or him and place in a box.

Twitch’s Grass: Causes fighting between a group
Of friends.

Vetivert: Silences ones who will speak ill of you.

Vervain: Spells used to contact and speak with Lucifer are the most effective when using this herb. Also used for conjuring evil spirits and demons. This can be very effective if you are someone who works with darker being to help you carry out the hex/curse.

Willow: willow is under the devils protection and when held in ones left hand may be used in pacts, or rites requiring supernatural powers. Good aid in curse work.

Another good working is to add to your doll the liver of a chicken. As it turns rancid so will the targets health.

Now, the really fun part: things you can do with your poppet after it is constructed.

Depending on the outcome you are looking for, you can abuse and torture your dollie in any fashion you can think of. Some good examples are as follows:

War water is a strong addition to any curse work. You can use the spanish moss from it for stuffing. Or drown the poppet in a jar of it.

You can sew it’s mouth, eyes, vagina, or any bodily opening shut.

Bind it’s hands, feet, neck or even its penis.

Hang it from a noose.

Burn it, slowly over time, or just toss in the fire.

Punch it, kick it. Any torture you can think of😉

Piss on it, or drown in a jar of urine.

You can also bury it in a graveyard.
Dump it in a swamp.

Use your most sadistic imagination.

Some things to consider are the length of time; will you leave it forever? Or rescue it once you feel the target has paid their debt?
Also the level of the curse; do you want them to be frustrated, or do you want them to forever live in torment? Physical or mental torment. Be choosy. If you have a cheating husband you may not want to completely cut off it’s penis?? Or maybe you do??

Also consider the other variables. If it is the other parent and you’re pissed that they have sole custody…. what you do to them will likely effect the child’s life as well? You should give much considerations to your curse work. If you don’t you may suffer back lash. Especially if you are a believer in the Karmic laws.

Another VERY important thing to consider is a good cleansing afterwards. To get rid of any residual dark energies.

If you are not a somewhat established practitioner, you should carefully consider that, before doing maledictive workings of any kind. Here is one of my favorite dollie curses.

From Denise Alvarado’s book “The Voodoo Doll Spellbook”

(This is for times of extreme anger and hatred)

With clay, (and all the intention, hatred, anger and focus you can muster) make an effigy of your enemy. You can still use hex herbs etc.. take the doll out to a running body of water, where no one will find it. Weigh it down with a rock, or wedge between rocks. Speak your hatred out loud, call spirit if you wish. When you’re done, stand up and walk away, do not look back. The idea of this curse is that, as the water corrodes the poppet, the target will fall ill and their health will decline the more the water disfigures the doll.

—- curses should not be taken lightly, even if you don’t follow karmic law. If the person does not deserve to be cursed, it will likely fizzle out before it starts. However, it can also cause you to have magickal backlash. If after reading this you still feel inclined to do curse work, then I bid you, happy hexing.

Witches Poppet

Voodoo Magic concept. Voodoo doll studded with needles with pierced rag heart on pentagram and around burning candles. Spooky or eerie magical esoteric ritual, black and white photo.

A witch’s poppet is made as representation of a particular person that has generally wronged or crossed paths with a witch at some point in time; there primary use is for the witch to perform revenge spells on although they can be used to aid people too like healing.

To personalize the poppet it should contain the intended person’s hair and nail cuttings or if you can get it there blood, sweat or tears. The other ingredients to be added to your poppet will depend on whether you intend to heal or take revenge.

Herbal Poppets

This is also known as the “voodoo doll,” although it has been in magical use at least 4,000 years and was only lately associated with voodoo.

Though they have been made out of roots, potatoes, lead, bark, paper, and other materials, in magical herbalism poppets are usually fashioned of cloth and herbs.

The poppet is a doll made to represent the person to be aided through magic.

Poppets are most often made to speed healing, and are also fashioned to draw money, love, and all the various magical needs.

For best results do not construct a poppet representing another person; only yourself.

Poppets are easy to make: draw a rough outline of a human figure (about eight inches long).

Transfer this outline to a doubled-over piece of cloth of the appropriate color.

Cut it out so that you have two identical pieces of cloth.

Pin these together and begin to sew them around the edges.

When threequarters of the doll is stitched, fill it with the appropriate enchanted herbs.

For instance, if I need help in overcoming a cold, I’d stuff the poppet with crushed eucalyptus leaves.

Once the poppet is completed, hold it in your power hand and visualize your need.

State in plain words that you have fashioned the poppet to aid you in becoming healthy, to draw money, etc.

The herbs within the poppet will go to work in manifesting your need.

The poppet filled with healing herbs (for example) represents you “filled” with health.

Place the poppet on the altar.

Burn candles of the proper colors and stare at the poppet, visualizing your need.

Store the doll in a safe place when not in use.

After it has done its job, pick it apart and bury the herbs and cloth.

Herbal Poppets And Sachets

Traditionally, empowered herbs were used to fill either sachets or featureless dolls called herbal poppets.

They were made for love, protection, prosperity, fertility, healing and success and could contain either a single herb or a mixture, depending on the purpose.

Poppets, which are used mainly in love or healing or occasionally in protective magick, are generally kept in a safe place, such as a drawer, rather than carried around.

So, for a love spell, two poppets would be tied together and placed in a drawer in a bedroom or left out on the window ledge in the moonlight, especially around the time of the full moon.

For fertility, a miniature poppet might be placed in a tiny woven cradle on the window ledge from the new to the full moon.

It would then be wrapped in silk until the end of the moon cycle and kept in an enclosed space, for example, a large painted egg made of pottery or wood.

The would-be father would make the cradle and the mother would sew and fill the doll.

Some practitioners attach hair from the person to be healed or the object of the love spell to the poppet, but I consider that this is an intrusion of privacy.

Instead, it may be suggested that if you wish to add extra power, you make your featureless dolls in an appropriate colour.

Herbal sachets are particularly versatile; small ones can be carried around in a bag, pocket or pinned to undergarments, and large ones can be hung over a bed or near the door or in a drawer at work.

Traditionally, sachets of empowered herbs were tied with three, six or nine knots of ribbon or twine, these being magical numbers. If you do this, choose ribbon of a colour appropriate to the need – or more than one colour if you wish to add a secondary colour meaning.

The number of knots depends on the intensity of the need as knots are a powerful way of concentrating energies.

You can, of course, buy ready-made drawstring purses in different colours, which make instant excellent herb pouches, but making herbal sachets is very straightforward.

The key is to experiment and be inventive. Keep a note in your healing journal or Book of Shadows of combinations that are especially effective, together with the rough proportions you used.

For example, if you were creating a sachet for someone who had suffered a loss in love or bereavement, you would make a love sachet that emphasised gentleness, using two parts Chamomile flowers to one part rosemary.

The Chamomile is for gentle love, affection and tolerance, and the rosemary would encourage fond and happy memories.

Note that some books give other planetary associations, as these do vary under different systems.

The associations for healing and magick are the same whether you use incense, essential oil or the herbal form of a substance.

These are just different ways of releasing the energies.

Incense, for example, is the best choice if you want an instant response; oil gives a slower but more enduring fragrance; and if your healing spell needs to take effect over days or weeks, then herbs in a sachet would be best.

The sachet would act as an amulet of protection, but because it was empowered it would also be a talisman, attracting health, abundance or love, according to its composition.

The divisions between healing work and other magical purposes are very slight since every positive ritual automatically releases healing energies.
