What is Root Work?
According to Wikipedia, "Herbalism is a traditional medicinal or folk medicine practice based on the use of plants and plant extracts. Herbalism is also known as botanical medicine, medical herbalism, herbal medicine, herbology, and phytotherapy. The scope of herbal medicine is sometimes extended to include fungal and bee products, as well as minerals, shells and certain animal parts. Pharmacognosy is the study of medicines derived from natural sources."

- Voodoo Mama's Angelica Root
Also known as Garden Angelica, or the Root of the Holy Ghost, the virtues of Angelica have long been praised in folklore, dating back into ages of great antiquity. It was used during times of plague to protect against contagion and illness, and was used as an aid in purifying blood and was described by some as a "cure for every conceivable malady," though it was chiefly used against poison, infections, and the spread of the plague. Angelica also came to be heavily associated with Angels and divinity, perhaps in part because it tends to bloom around the same time of the day of Michael the Archangel, casting it into a holy light. In this view, it was frequently used to keep evil spirits away and protect against curses, evil spells, and cruel enchantments. More frequently these days, it is used as a remedy for colds, coughs, rheumatism, and diseases of the urinary track, and some would worn those with diabetes away from it as it possesses a high sugar content. Though it is widely known for these properties, it is more commonly utilized as an expectorant for coughs and a diaphoretic for fevers. Slipping away from holistic medicine, it is perhaps most widely known for its use in flavoring liqueurs, jams, and other such things.
- Voodoo Mama's Balm of Gilead Buds
Balm of Gilead or Poplar buds come from Cottonwood Poplar trees in the United States that produce a resinous, stick and tight bud that is highly aromatic. The dried, unopened buds of the poplar tree have been used in ointments and skin treatments for at least 3,000 years. According to an old Black Spiritual, "There is a balm in Gilead to soothe the sin-sick soul." Presented as a gift to Solomon, it was cultivated in Judea on Mt. Gilead.
Balm of Gilead can be used as an oil of consecration. To extract the resin, crush the buds, cover with olive oil and allow to sit for two weeks. To prepare a candle to be used in psychic healing, first rinse it in cold water and sea salt, and then anoint it beginning at the center working outward toward both ends. Burn the buds to attract spirits, or carry them to attract a new love.
- Voodoo Mama's Buckeye Nuts
In Hoodoo, buckeye nuts are considered to be potent good luck charms. The nuts are picked while still in their green spiny jackets which are then peeled away, leaving the bare nut. The nuts are allowed to dry and oiled daily until they reach a rich, deep, brown color. The method of oiling in the folk tradition is by rubbing the nut alongside the nose where there is typically a natural concentration of oil produced by the skin.
The name Buckeye comes from Native American folklore. Native people noticed that the nut of the Buckeye tree resembles the eye of a buck deer, a buck eye. My mother always told me that buckeyes were lucky and she always kept one in her purse and told me to carry one in my pocket. In Hoodoo, it is believed that carrying a buckeye in one's pocket will bring good luck and increase pocket money. Lucky buckeyes were carried in men's pockets sometimes for their entire lives. They are coveted by gamblers who anoint them with Fast Luck Oil and carry them concealed in their mojo bags for luck in games of chance.
- Voodoo Mama's Dragon's Blood Resin
Attributed to Heh and Pe by the Kabbalists (Aires and Mars) Dragons Blood is also an incense of Fire. It is especially good when mixed with other incense, and acts as a boost to their potency. Dragon's Blood comes from the fruit of the Draco trees, and looks like boiling blood when you put it on charcoal to burn as incense.
