Goofer Dust is not nice stuff. If you're reading this listing and don't already know about it, it's the kind of thing you use when you're just fine with it if the target dies. Workers don't always use it strictly for killing work, but they never, ever use it for anything nice.

It contains ingredients designed to cross enemies, cause confusion and instability of mind and purpose, drive people away, or cause spiritual illness. There are probably as many goofer dust recipes as there are rootworkers, but this stuff traditionally contains some noxious ingredients that you would want to avoid touching for very long, avoid breathing in, avoid having contact your eyes or mouth, and keep away from children, pets, and anybody who is not your target.

If you are especially sensitive and/or have allergies or asthma, you should probably just wear a dust mask when you handle this to avoid inhaling fine airborne particles.

Comes inside an eggshell from an egg laid by one of my black hens. It's been hollowed out, painted with sealant inside and out for durability in shipping/handling, and filled half-full of Goofer Dust. The hole will be covered with tissue paper. When you're ready to use it, add your personal concerns/petition papers, seal it back up with tissue or wax, and deploy it according to whatever you're trying to work.

Comes with a hardcopy sheet of traditional uses to give you some ideas. These are not instructions per se since there are lots of different ways to use things like this depending on the circumstances and environment. I presume that if you're ordering something like this, you already know what it does and what to do with it. If you do not -- if you are totally new to the materials and methods used in crossing and goofering work in the hoodoo tradition -- you should probably not start with this item.

Let me just head this one off at the pass: when workings call for "a black hen's egg," the egg is not black. The hen is black. Black hens don't lay black eggs any more than brown cows give brown milk. All of my black hens lay eggs in varying shades of brown.

International buyers are discouraged from choosing this item. While I pack carefully, an overseas trip is a lot of wear and tear to ask of a hollowed-out egg. You would assume all risk and responsibility in case of loss or damage. Better, I think, to write me and let me put together some kind of custom kit for you that works on the same principles but is not as delicate so you aren't risking your investment having it shipped.

HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days and will be longer for custom-finished items, large orders, and some specialty/extra strength formulas. Why? Two reasons:

One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, decanting and praying over every oil order as it comes in, for instance. It's not a matter of just grabbing a bottle off a shelf and popping it into an envelope. And I stock only what I know I can use within a certain shelf life. That means I can have unexpected runs on formulas that use up my stock of an ingredient, and it takes a few days for more to arrive. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.

Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line, stuff like that.

USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that all-natural does not equal hypoallergenic. If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.

LEGALESE:  As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
