The Conjure Bag
Also known as charm bags, gris-gris, mojo, Witch’s pouch, root bags,
wishing bags, toby & by other names. They are usually red cotton flannel
bags tied with a draw string that are filled with items that you pick for
your specific desire. They are a talisman that can be made for any
use such as; luck, love, safety in travel, money, health, etc. Used for

periodically with oils specific to your purpose or in some instances
a drop of urine, blood or other body fluids; depending on the purpose your
