I also found this blog called Crossroads of Sorcery which has some really practical Hoodoo information on it. I do not practice Hoodoo per se, but some of my kitchen witchery is very similar, and I love working with red yarn as my teacher taught me. He has a tutorial here called Brother Ash’s Jack Ball which gives you a step by step way of making a luck ball for various purposes. This one uses High John the Conqueror herb and lots of other ingredients. I can definitely see how this can be applied using a lot of different formulas for certain results. Enjoy!
