Why are Voodoo love spells so effective? Voodoo love spells are some of the most popular because they have a reputation of working really well. So, what’s the difference? What makes Voodoo love spells so special?
In order to answer that question, we need to look at the different types of magic. Voodoo love spells are very specific. They can be written to suit your needs exactly. And because Voodoo love spells are not restrained by the rules of white magic, they can be very direct.
This makes them much more effective than general white magic spells that attract certain energies but have no specific targets. There are many different ways of casting Voodoo love spells, from ritual baths to magical powders and more!
What makes spells powerful?
White magic has a simple rule that must be followed. Nobody can be harmed. Now, remember that according to white magic, harm even includes restricting somebody’s free will. That means that if I cast a white magic love spell, I’m not allowed to name the person I would like to attract. We can cast white magic love spells to attract love into our lives in general, but we don’t have any control over what that brings us.
What kind of magic is Voodoo?
More traditional kinds of magic and witchcraft like folk magic don’t ascribe to this rule. Practitioners of folk magic may believe in the Law of Threefold Return, which states that what you send into the universe will be returned to you threefold. Or maybe they simply believe in karma.
Either way, practitioners in the area of gray magic believe that witches should be able to decide for themselves which consequences they are willing to live with. So, if they want to cast a magic spell on a love interest thereby manipulating them into loving them, that is their choice. It is not a moral judgment. However, if there are negative consequences from that action, they must be prepared to accept them.
Consequences of spellcasting
What could the negative consequences be from making somebody fall in love with you be? Doesn’t everybody want to be in love? Well, think of it this way. If somebody cast a love spell on you but you were actually in love with somebody else, then the spell would be forcing you to do something that you don’t want to do. White magic practitioners consider this to be harming someone.
Or let’s say you force somebody to fall in love with you and then you realize that they are in a relationship with somebody else. Your love spell could be responsible for breaking that other person’s heart. That definitely falls into the category of harming someone! What if this person has children that you didn’t know about? They could also be harmed.
Or from another perspective, what if you force someone to fall in love with you and then you realize that you were just infatuated and you actually don’t want to spend the rest of your life with them. Love spells can be very strong and this person will now be spiritually bound to you. As a spell-caster, this is a consequence that you must accept.
Witchcraft is a practice, not a religion, and therefore one of the most fundamental teachings is simply to accept responsibility for the things you set in motion through your spell casting. If you are willing to suffer the consequences of your actions and take responsibility for what you have caused, then that is your choice to make. Witchcraft doesn’t preach morals. Some refer to this as grey magic.
Voodoo love spells
Voodoo love spells come from a rich tradition of ancient, African, shamanistic traditions that were brought across the Atlantic Ocean and into the United States, the Carribean, and parts of South America. These West and Central African traditions became fused with Western Christianity. There are many different branches of the Voodoo religion, but they do have some common denominators.
Voodoo practices believe that there is an invisible and visible world. The spirits of the departed continue to live around us but on the invisible side. Ancestor worship is a very important part of the Voodoo religion. Additionally, magical practices and rituals are a fundamental aspect of their practice and belief system. There is a belief in one supreme God, but there are many spirits that can be called upon to aid practitioners in their spiritual and magical work.
Voodoo love spells have a lot in common with other types of witchcraft spell-casting. Voodoo love spells incorporate candle magic, magical herbs, and also the use of simulacra or talisman. The famous Voodoo doll, for example, is a physical object that is imbued with spiritual energies and charged with certain intentions that will affect the physical world. However, not all Voodoo practitioners use voodoo dolls. In fact, candles, potions, powders, washes, and baths are much more common. Voodoo magic also incorporates the use of crystals and minerals. In fact, they ascribe them a lot of the same powers and uses as in the Pagan and Wiccan witchcraft traditions.
Voodoo magical oils
Making magical oils is a very important part of Voodoo. Although it is possible to purchase pre-made oils, the tradition encourages learning the uses of various herbs and ingredients and preparing your own. In order to make these magical oils, you need a mortar and pestle. Pour in two ounces of your carrier oil and add the mixture of herbs and ingredients as per the recipe. Take the time to crush the ingredient into the carrier oil and then store the mixture in an airtight container. Always store your magical oils in a cool dry place to keep them potent. Allow the mixture to infuse for four days and then check to see if it is the desired potency. If not, you can strain the ingredients out and repeat the process. Here are a few magical oil recipes from “The Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook” by Denise Alvarado. This book is an essential resource if you really want to learn all of the ins and outs of the Voodoo religion and its magical practices.

Voodoo spiritual baths
Spiritual baths are another common type of Voodoo magical practice. Very similar to traditional and Wiccan healing and spells removal practices, Voodoo spiritual baths remove negativity and cleanse the body and spirit. They can also fill the spell-caster with positive energies and attract specific intentions.
Follow these guidelines for ritual bathing:
- Bless the water before stepping into the tub and invoke the appropriate Goddess
- Soak yourself completely in the water while naming your concerns
- Stay in the bath for at least 15 minutes while visualizing the solution to your problem
- As you drain the water, visualize your problems vanishing. Say “Let it be so.” as the last drop vanishes
- Be sure to clean your tub with salt after the bath

Voodoo gris-gris bags for love
Gris-gris bags are a very common and important element of Voodoo magic making. Traditionally, they are made from red flannel, chamois, or leather. They are tiny little pouches like a spell or charm in a bag. The bags are filled with items specific to the desired intention of the spell. The magical ingredients are placed inside, anointed and then either smudged with incense or breathed upon to activate the magic. Gris-gris bags are very personal and the items chosen should represent whatever desire the spell-caster has. There are no set rules of what needs to go inside, you must study common ingredients and then follow your intuition.
Gris-gris bags can be filled with anything from magical herbs to crystals, to pieces of bone or graveyard dust. Whatever matches the intended purpose of the spell. Gris-gris bags are traditionally carried by the spellcaster both as a reminder of the spell and to keep it close to you in your life. Essentially it is a talisman. The spell is cast as the objects are placed inside the bag, then the bag is sealed and anointed with a special oil like the anointing oil we outlined above. Once the pouch has been smudged with incense or breathed upon, it can be carried around to work its magic!
There are five things to remember when creating a gris-gris bag:
- Choose the correct color for your gris-gris bag according to color symbolism. The color should match the intent of the spell.
- Always place an odd number of items into the bag. Never less than three and never more than thirteen.
- You must fill the gris-gris bag with items that are relevant to the spell’s intended purpose
- You must dress the gris-gris bag with a liquid of some kind, whether a magic oil or potion
- Don’t forget to activate the gris-gris bag by smudging it with incense, holding it over a flame, or breathing upon it.
Here is a voodoo love powder, also from Denise Alvarado’s book. You can place this powder inside a gris-gris bag or use it for foot track magic. In fact, these powders and potions have multiple purposes, so once you have made them, you can keep the leftovers and use them for other spells. Go ahead and fill your sacred pantry and voodoo spell casting will become quick and practical! Use this powder to attract love! You can use it in your gris-gris bag or dust in on your body.
