I was very blessed to be gifted some High John the Conqueror root this week, something I haven't worked with for a while so I wanted to do something special with it, in case you wanted some info about it...even if you didn't here it is anyway...
High John the Conqueror root:
Holding the root and calling out the name High John the Conqueror and asking for his blessings will bring you what you require.
Apparently just owning the root will bring you success, luck and love (hoorah!).
If you always have a piece of the root you will never be without money.
Pop the root into a green bag or wrap in green cloth to bring success, prosperity and luck.
If you are looking for love then wrap the root in red cloth or pop into a red bag with a representation of the one you desire with it (only if that 'free will' thing doesn't worry you of course).
The root can be carried with you as a talisman to ward against hexes, to prevent depression and bring the owner courage, success, personal power and abundance.
Burn the root to help remove blockages and help solve problems.
Add to incense blends or sachet powders for love, protection, success, prosperity, protection and peace.
Drop the root into a base oil and steep to create an anointing oil or perfume to bring success, love, money, protection, removing obstacles and bringing confidence and strength.
Add to a floor wash to bring protection to your home.
Use in workings for any kind of job, financial or business success.
Use to heal and strengthen your aura.
It will bring a magical boost of power to any working.
It is a very masculine energy and definitely fiery.
It kicks butt.
So basically this root is a small and let's be honest pretty ugly thing but boy does it pack a powerful magical energy. But don't eat it...coz it is apparently incredibly laxative... So I am off to make some magic...
