Van Van oil is one of the most common conjure oils in Hoodoo workings. It is used in many spells to bring good luck, keep evil spirits away, to attract love, to open roads to new possibilities, and to break jinxes and curses. Van Van oil is used in Hoodoo to dress candles, feed mojo bags, and in spiritual washes and baths.

We use an old, carefully crafted recipe which contains the following:
Vervain to draw love and protection.
Lemongrass to draw love, luck and new opportunities.
Vetiver is used for dominance, to repel negative energy, and to break jinxes.
Palmarosa, which draws good fortune and is good for spiritual cleansing.

Here are some ways to use VanVan:

To Bring Someone Back
Take a picture of the person and turn it towards the wall.
Write the name of the person on a piece of paper three times, one above the other. Then turn the paper 90 degrees, and write the person’s name again 6 times, over the names you just wrote.
Put the piece of paper in a bottle and add 7 drops of Van Van oil and Florida Water.
According to the Hoodoo practitioner in Hyatt’s book, every time you shake the bottle it will disturb the person’s mind until they come back.

In a Mojo Bag for Gambling
You can create a Mojo bag, also called a gris gris, to bring you good luck at the gambling tables using Van Van oil. Take a square piece of red flannel, and in the center put a spoonful of cinnamon, a spoonful of sugar, and a pair of dice. Tie up the flannel around the ingredients, and keep it your pocket. Mojo bags must be “fed” to keep the spirit in them alive. For this mojo bag, feed it 9 drops of Van Van oil every 9 days.

As a Spiritual Cleansing Bath
Hoodoo places a lot of emphasis on spiritual cleansing, and some kind of cleansing should be performed before any other work is done. In “Charms, Spells, and Formulas”, author Ray T. Malbrough states that adding 9 drops of Van Van oil to bath water for 9 days can accomplish this.

Contains vervain, lemongrass, vetiver, palmarosa, and other ingredients in a base of fractured coconut oil.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are your items cruelty free and ethically sourced?

Absolutely! No animal testing here! We also take pride in ensuring the products we sell are sourced and obtained in a responsible and sustainable way.

How fast can I get my order?

While we have a shipping profile set for each item, we typically send out same or next day. Our customers always come first; we typically stop all work to get orders out as quickly as possible. Please note that we will work with FedEx if a quicker delivery is requested, just send a message! :)

Can I just cancel my order if I didn't receive it?

We worked really hard to offer products with attractive packaging, and to ship them quickly so we ask our customers to do their part to ensure they do everything they can to receive them.

If your package was marked delivered please check with others in your home, neighbors, or contact the local carrier.

If you still don't find your package, open a case with Etsy. We will not automatically issue a refund or cancel the order.

If your package is floating in the USPS stratosphere for more then 15 days we will file an insurance claim and try to resolve issues quickly. We do not reimburse before a case has been filed.

If your package was returned to us with an incorrect address, you will be required to cover the additional postage.

What's so important about reviews?

Reviews are everything to us! Reviews tell us if we are hitting the mark with our customer service in terms of quality of product, service and speed of shipping.

If you feel can't leave a 5-star review please contact us immediately with any issues so we can try to resolve them and ensure you love your purchase!

In order for an Etsy seller to make up for one 4-star review we must receive 19 5-star reviews! So even if we have a happy customer with 4 stars it really hurts us sellers to receive anything less than 5 stars.

What type of materials do you use to pack and ship orders?

We like to use biodegradable materials as often as possible. Oftentimes we will reuse and recycle packing materials from vendors to help reduce waste in landfills.
