There are many things now a days that are being brought into Conjure that come from Santeria, Palo and other religions. This is how you can tell who is the real deal and who isn’t. Why is there a need to mix and match when Conjure already has things to work with? Use your common sense folks. Here’s a short list.
Chalk Verses Cascarilla
Cascarilla is not used in Traditional Conjure, to mark things ole Conjurer’s use chalk. Cascarilla is worked with in the ATR’s for marking things; it is also an ingredient that is used in some works.
Syrup Verses Honey
Syrup runs faster than honey and is cheaper. In the old days folks didn’t have extra money for Honey. Honey is an offering given to the Goddess Oshun. I didn’t really hear about honey being used until I got on the internet.
Waters are basically used the same no matter what you practice.
Red Brick Dust
Lord this was made famous in a movie. For protection any ole Conjure will tell you to get dirt from a holy place and sprinkle it around. Not many poor folks could get their hands on red bricks that was for the rich man who built their homes with brick. The only way a poor man could get this dust is if he made bricks or knew someone.
Florida Water Verses Other waters
Old workers use blessed water’s; I never even heard of Florida water until I became involved with Santeria. I see a lot of miss matching going on.
