And We've Got a New Candle For YOU!
The Christian festival of Candlemas -- equivalent to Imbolc and also celebrated as Groundhog Day -- is the festival when the light of Spring returns for certain-sure. This year we are introducing a brand new candle to our lovely line-up: the Van Van Vigil Light.

Van Van is the most classic of the New Orleans "Algiers style" formulas, known for clearing away evil, opening roads to opportunities, empowering charms and amulets, and changing bad luck into good.

These candles work perfectly with the rest of our Van Van line of products including Van Van Oil, Van Van Incense, Van Van Sachet Powder, Van Van Mojo Bags, and of course Lodestones and the famed Rabbit's Foot

As Miss catherine yronwode points out in "Hoodoo in Theory and Practice," "It is an interesting curiosity to note that due to the 'Van' sound in the name of this formula, many people assume that it contains Vanilla scent -- but such is not the case. Instead, as pointed out by Dr. James Dotson, who has extensively researched the history of perfumes, Van Van is a phonetic pronunciation of the French word Verveine, a name of a flowering plant commonly known as Verbena or Vervain in English. In the Creole French dialect of Louisiana, Vervain is pronounced 'Vaah-Vahn.' And, indeed, Dr. Dotson has found records of old hand-written formularies archived at the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum which indicate that as early as 1900, 'Verveine' perfume was made with Lemon Grass. The reason for this substitution, as best i can determine, is that Verbena itself does not produce a stable essential oil for perfumery, but Lemon Verbena, a popular species of Verbena, does smell a great deal like Lemon Grass or its close relative, Citronella Grass." 
So there's a little bit of interesting history behind this iconic and timeless formula for you. These candles can now be purchased fixed for $9.00, but if you drop by the store in Forestville. and fix your own candle at our fully-equipped candle station, you can save $2.00 and only pay $7.00. Sounds lucky to me!

Hoodoo Spiritual Baths

To order Lucky Mojo brand bath crystals prepared with herbs and essential oils, check out the following links:
  • Hoodoo Bath Crystals here at Lucky Mojo are made in the old-fashioned Southern style, with genuine roots and herbs. These mineral Bath Crystals are packaged in foil packets with vivid graphic labels and full instructions for use, including prayers. Although we call them Bath Crystals, another name for them is Crystal Salts, and they can also be dissolved in water to make up a floor wash or laundry rinse.
  • Catholic Saint Bath Crystals are used when petitioning for the aid of Catholic Saints or invoking their aid in magical rites. Many people like to take special ritual baths or to wash the premises in a special scrub water, containing genuine herbs and oils deemed appropriate to the saints with whom they are working. Lucky Mojo Holy Saints Bath Crystals are hand-made by us on the premises, and packaged in foil wrappers with vivid graphic labels.
  • Hindu Deity Bath Crystals are used in a similar fashion to the Catholic Saint Bath Crystals, and are employed when working with Hindu deities or invoking their aid. The baths are prepared by us on the premises with genuine herbs and oils deemed appropriate to the Gods.
  • Essential Oil Bath Crystals are for practitioners who wish to create their own custom Bath Crystals blends, and for their convenience, we stock the following Bath Crystals that have been scented with Essential and Fragrance oils. Each Bath Crystals is a pure "single-tone" scent and is tinted an appropriate colour. These Bath Crystals may be blended together, and herbs may be added to them.  
  • Planetary Bath Crystals are inspired by the Gods and Goddesses after whom the "Seven Sacred Planets" and days of the week were named in old Europe. These salts may be used in ritual baths or rites of house cleaning to bring closer the influences of the deities represented by the Planets. They may be combined with Zodiacal Bath Crystals when working astrologically-based spells. 
  • Zodiacal Bath Crystals may be combined with Planetary Bath Crystals and use them either remediatively, to strengthen "weak" astrological aspects, or pro-actively to heighten strong astrological aspects. Lucky Mojo Zodiacal Bath Crystals are hand-made by us on the premises, and packaged in foil wrappers with vivid graphic labels.
So that's it, folks! You've got everything you need to start washing, bathing, and fixing your laundry with our Southern-style Bath Crystals. If you've got any question be sure to check out the online Lucky Mojo forum for info from thousands of conjure practitioners.
