HOW TO USE A VOODOO DOLL: Free Voodoo Doll Spells
Voodoo Doll Magick
Did you know that some of the most popular search terms on the subject of Voodoo includes Voodoo dolls, how to make Voodoo dolls, and of course, how to use Voodoo dolls? Well, I figured that since I have numerous lenses on the topic of making Voodoo dolls, I thought I would tackle the next topic of how to use your Voodoo doll. So, now that you have your Voodoo doll, what do you do with it?
Thanks to Hollywood and general ignorance, the most popular misconception about Voodoo dolls is that they are made to exact revenge against enemies. Countless sites exist that promise to sell you a Voodoo doll with instructions for hexing someone, casting a revenge spell, or placing a curse on your enemy. These dolls come complete with justification for doing so. One site equates Voodoo with the "dark side of the magical spiritual world" and Voodoo dolls with the "Black Arts". The justification assumes that you are protected from any type of karmic backlash because fair use of the Voodoo doll is not contrary to any Universal laws.
Newsflash!!! Most practitioners of Voodoo typically do not use pins in Voodoo dolls and when pins are used, they are used as focusing tools for healing and other positive purposes. Secondly, Voodoo is not a form of the Black Arts. Voodoo is a legitimate African religion brought to the Americas through slavery and the colonization process. It melded with elements of European folk magic, Indigenous herbology and beliefs, and elements of Catholicism to become a functional and positive spirituality. Voodoo guides its followers in matters of daily living, as most religions do.
Next, any tool used for magickal purposes can be charged to possess positive or negative vibrations through ceremony or meditation. In this way, the tool becomes alive and something to be respected. If misused, you will feel the karmic effects through conflicts, accidents, depression, or bad luck, for example. This is why it is extremely important to exercise caution when using your Voodoo doll. Voodoo dolls can be used for dark purposes; however, this is never a good idea. There IS karmic backlash associated with using Voodoo dolls with the intent of hurting someone else. That is why all of the reputable practitioners and their associated sites indicate their dolls are blessed to carry only positive energy and light with them. You would be wise to follow suit.

Use as a Focusing Tool
By far the most common use of a Voodoo doll is their use as focusing tools. Typically, you appeal to the loa that your doll represents, light a candle in the appropriate color of the loa, and make offerings to the loa. For very doll that I sell, I include directions for how to do this. For example, to use Papa Legba Voodoo doll as a focusing tool you would light a red or black candle (his favorite colors), and greet him with his ritual greeting, "Odu Legba, Papa Legba, open door your children await. Open the door Papa Legba, your children await. On my way back, I will return the favor." You can then tell him your wishes and offer him some of his favorite things in three (his favorite number). Things he likes are candy, corn, rum, and cigars.
Banishing and Defeating Your Enemies
Banishing rituals are done to rid yourself of someone who is threatening you or pestering you. For these types of situations, you can appeal to Ogun or Chango, or for women victims of domestic violence, appeal to Erzulie Dantor.
A simple ritual for Chango.
Chango is the deity of fire, thunder, power, wars, and lightening. He is also the symbol for sensual pleasure. Chango is the Voodoo deity that can help you gain power over others, defeat your enemies, and victory over all difficulties.
To use Chango, you should construct an altar for him. He prefers to be on a fireplace mantel, or on your business desk. His altar should be constructed using the following elements:
Patron saint: St. Barbara, St. Jerome
Day and number: Friday, 6
Country and owned places: Trinidad, sky, trees
Cloth and Bead colors: Red and white
Favorite animals and objects: Horses, rams, turtles, pheasants, machete, wood, double axe
Favorite food: apples, yams, corn, and peppers
Planet: Sun and Mars
Place in the house: Fireplace, business desk
Ritual greeting: Kaguo, Kabiosile
Use Chango as a focusing tool for the purpose you seek. First, light a white candle. Concentrate on the outcome you wish to occur and ask Chango for assistance in creating this change. Make an offering for three days following your request. Appropriate offerings for Chango include any of his favorite foods, animals, and objects.
When is Hexing Appropriate?
Okay, so there are people in this world whom we would all love to hex and are deserving of massive cursing...like child rapists and my ex-husband, for example. Is it ever okay to wish excruciating pain and dismemberment on these types of people? Well, yes and no. But, rather than go into it here, I would really encourage you to read what Louisa Teish has to say about it as I could not say it any better than she.

Can You Feel the Love?
Yes, Voodoo dolls are excellent for use in cases of attracting love or improving sex. Get a Voodoo doll in the likeness of Oshun or Erzulie Freda. These are the Santeria and Voodoo Goddesses of love.
The following ritual invokes the spirit of Oshun. Oshun is the Santeria goddess of love, art, and dance. Her greatest attribute is her ability to provide the emotions a solid foundation upon which to reside and grow.
Ideally, you will begin at your altar. It is advisable to have altar candles (yellow, green, or pink) and spiritual incense burning (cinnamon) at the time of use. To begin, you will need to ask Papa Legba to open the gates to the spirit world so that you can ask Oshun for a favor. To do so, recite the following three times:
Odu Legba, Papa Legba, open the door, Your children are waiting. Papa Legba, open the door, your children await.
You can now use your Voodoo doll as a focusing tool for creating the change you seek. Oshun is particularly useful for improving love, happiness, and emotional strength. Concentrate on the outcome you wish to occur and greet Oshun with the appropriate ritual greeting: Ori Ye Ye O.
You may now ask Oshun for assistance in creating the change you seek. You may write a petition if you wish. Make an offering for three days following your request. Appropriate offerings include lighting a special candle, placing a small plate of food from your dinner on her altar, or flowers. Oshun is particularly fond of cinnamon, honey, oranges, pumpkins, gold, mirrors, and French pastries. Her favorite colors are yellow, green, and coral, her favorite day is Thursday, and her favorite number is the number 5. Be creative!
When you are finished, place Oshun in your kitchen or in the bedroom as these are the best places in the home for her.
