Kitchen Hoodoo | Using Cinnamon in Hoodoo, Conjure and Candle Spells

Cinnamon is a spice known the world over to evoke memories of home and hearth and sweets baked on a cold winter’s day. It has been the item of scientific research on human behavior and is used extensively in the field of fragrance.

Cinnamon (Cinnamomium aromaticum, et al) is the peeled bark of the Cassia tree from the region of Southeast Asia and has its historical use in medicines and fragrances that date back to the Bible. Recipes for Holy Oils and incenses are written in the Holy Book and many cultures have a spiritual connection to this warm, spicy ingredient that became known to the world by trading Arabs traveling what is known as the Spice Route.

In the realm of hoodoo and conjure magic, Cinnamon is considered to bring the used Fast Luck, Money and Love. Mojo Bags containing a Jack Ball formed around a Cinnamon stick are carried for luck in games of chance and other forms of gambling. Love powders, commonly called Sachets, are created with Ground Cinnamon as one of the key ingredients for people to apply to their body when they want to “heat up” a love affair or have an attractive and attention drawing scent around them as they enter a room.

Red Candles (for sexual passion) and Pink Candles (for romance and affection) are frequently recommended to be rolled in ground Cinnamon if a it is a free standing candle, to “heat things up” or increasing the power of the intended candle. When using glass encased 7-day “novena” or “vigil” candles, place a pinch in the top of the wax before lighting.

A common known “tea” bath to draw in money and love is to take Cinnamon sticks and boil them in water to make a tea, adding the peel of one orange to the boiling water. Then, after cooling, pour over the body after showering without rinsing to draw people near to you.

It is a common spice used in the creation of many “Fast Luck” Anointing and Condition Oils.
