Please Bugger Off Powder
When you need somebody to go away but you don't want the heat and agitation that Hot Foot formulas introduce into the equation. If your target is volatile, has anger issues, etc., or if you are going to remain in each other's lives but you just need them to move out of your damn house, situations like that are what Please Bugger Off is for. You aren't trying to run them crazy, you just need your space and need to keep the peace at the same time.
My powders are made with finely ground herbs and dressed with essential oils in an all-natural, non-talcum base. They are made to draw sigils or symbols on your altar, to sprinkle around target areas for folks to walk in, to add a pinch to shoes, pockets, carpets, and the like, to add to a mojo bag or spell jar, etc.
It is traditional to call your target’s name, and/or speak (or at least murmur) your petition or pray as you deploy them, and in cases where you need the target to walk on them, you should mix them with some local dirt so they blend in.
They aren’t cosmetics, aren’t made in accordance with cosmetic industry guidelines for ingredients or labeling, are not talcum-based, and will be grittier/coarser than talcum-based powders. They have actual powdered herbs in them, and if you think about it for a second you will realize that actual powdered herbs often don’t make good cosmetics.
So if you are expecting a powder that is as finely ground as a cosmetic and that will make your skin really smooth, you will be disappointed with my powders. Some people do make talcum-based powders, which are quite traditional; it’s my non-talcum powders that are actually the less traditional version, but I have health reasons for not using them or making them.
For the traditional formulas that actually need a mineral component for various reasons, I use something besides talcum to meet this traditional requirement (often cosmetic-grade mica powder, which can be had in various colors these days and thus serve double duty as a coloring agent).

- Corked Bottle: Glass vial/bottle shape may vary depending on my supplier, but these will contain 1/2 oz by weight. In some cases that might mean the vial/bottle will not appear to be full since some containers are designed to leave headroom and since contents can settle during shipping. But these are packed by weight, not volume, so you're getting the full ounce by weight no matter the size and shape of the vial/bottle.
- Small Bag: Resealable plastic bag contains 1 oz.
- Medium Bag: Resealable plastic bag contains 3 oz.
USAGE: Powders are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics and they are not food. Do not sprinkle them on food; that's not how hoodoo powders work. Yes, people ask me this. If you need suggestions on how to use oils, powders, and bath crystals in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.
