The City of New Orleans! It is hard to imagine thinking about New Orleans without conjuring up thoughts about hoodoo, voodoo, witchcraft, and all things magickal. But what most people don't realize is that true Old New Orleans Traditional Witchcraft (ONOTW) is something completely different than other forms of witchcraft.

Okay, so what IS it, you ask?
Old New Orleans Traditional Witchcraft is plain and simple: It is a process by which you use any number of traditional supplies historically known for their magickal properties for purely goal-oriented spell casting. You want something, you don't seem to be able to accomplish it by every day means, you seek supernatural help. Period. That's it. You may cast one spell for one thing that is important to you at a particular time in your life or you may cast a thousand spells over a lifetime using them to enhance your daily life. That's up to you. It is all strictly goal-oriented. You aren't going to go to an ONOTW church; you aren't going to join a coven, there aren't any holidays ("sabbats") to observe, dieties (gods, spirits, ghosts, spooks, devils, whatever) to worry about pissing off or making happy, and, for that matter, there are very few "rules" (see below) to follow! (Note: Please remember, if you have been elsewhere on our site, this information does NOT pertain to our Creole Voodoo™ complete spell kits! Those kits are based on the religion of New Orleans Voodoo and should be used for the most serious situations.)

ONOTW is the kind of magick your great-great grandmother would have practiced - I know mine did!! I grew up in and lived most of my adult life in New Orleans. ONOTW is the most typical kind of practice in New Orleans - your common, every-day type of person uses this type of witchcraft. Although, it is funny to note that if questioned, most people would say, no, they don't do any type of witchcraft. But when asked about a charm they are wearing or a strange little bag on their desk, THEN they will say something like "Oh, you mean that!" These things are so ingrained in a lot of people in New Orleans that they wouldn't even consider it practicing witchcraft.... it's just a little extra "help!"

This means you do NOT have to change your religion, adhere to a belief system, or follow any particular "path." In fact, most ONOTW practitioners can be found at Catholic Mass on Sunday morning (more than likely praying for the same thing they are currently casting a spell for -- ONOTW practitioners figure, "Hey, it can't hurt.") ONOTW isn't against ANYONE'S religion unless you want to believe it is! Every ONOTW practitioner I have ever known was a devout "something" - Catholic, Jew, you name it. ONOTW is practiced in every day life - a charm or conjure bag carried, a candle lit with a wish, or any number of things used to enhance ordinary life.

Now that we know what ONOTW is, let's touch on what it ISN'T. ONOTW is NOT Wicca! Wicca is a religion. Wicca has traditional religious holidays. It is practiced as a belief system. Magick and spell casting are not the primary purpose of the religion of Wicca, although they do play a part in the practice of Wicca. Wiccans believe in something call The Wiccan Rede or The Threefold Law. If you are interested in changing your religion and practicing Wicca there is much literature written about it - that is not my purpose here. My purpose here is to explain to you that ONOTW isn't Wicca.

ONOTW is NOT "The Craft" --- see "Wicca" above! However, having said that, "the craft" is fast becoming a more generic term meaning "witchcraft" of any kind. However, in its true form "the craft" is Wicca.

ONOTW is NOT true Voodoo or Hoodoo, BUT elements of these practices have found their way into ONOTW due to the strong prevalence of these practices in New Orleans. So you are very likely to have a little Voodoo/Hoodoo thrown into your ONOTW spell work! But, you are not practicing the religion of Voodoo - that's entirely different.

ONOTW is NOT black magick, satanism, or anything involving the worship of dark dieties, or for that matter, ANY dieties.

So, now you know what ONOTW is and is not!


  • Don't ask for the utterly impossible! John Travolta is not going to knock on your door and ask you to marry him. You are not likely to win the lottery. A new Lexus is not going to show up in your driveway unexplained. Use this extraordinary witchcraft practice to enhance the ordinary!
  • Use GOOD QUALITY supplies. You can get them from us by CLICKING HERE! All of our supplies come with complete instructions. Be careful about that - many places sell you things, then no indication of how to use it!! Good quality supplies should always be purchased from a legitimate company who specializes in magick.
  • Try to concentrate on one desire at a time. If you are working on love desires, stick to that during one session; if you need money - do a separate session on that. There isn't any harm that will come to you if you don't do this - it is just that you are less likely to get a good result if your energies are too scattered.
  • FOCUS! Know what you want. Don't be afraid to go after it - so many of us feel we don't "deserve" good things to happen to us! Why?? You do deserve it! Focus on your goal as many times a day as you can whether you are doing magickal work at that particular moment or not. Try to carry something with you that represents your magickal goal - a mojo (gris-gris) bag, charm, etc., if at all possible. Use it as a focal point as often as you can. You don't have to go into a trance, cast a spell at that moment, draw a circle, or anything else - just spend a brief period holding the item and comtemplate your goal.
  • Do all you need to do in the "real" world along with working on your project using magick. Doing magick to help you get a good job and then sitting home and not going on any interviews isn't going to be effective in getting you a job! Be proactive with your desires.
  • Try different things (oils, charms, herbs, candle magick) some things work better for some people than other things - keep working at it until you find what is right for you. Most people find that some combination of supplies works best for them.
  • Practice! It's like anything else - the more you do it, the better you become at it.
  • Relax, enjoy what you are doing. Don't try to complicate it -- the boogey man is not going to come and get you if you happen to make a little mistake with one of your supplies! That is B-grade movie stuff, folks!
  • "Feel" your way through what you are doing. What does that mean? It means get a "feel" for it -- trust it, embody it, just let it breathe, let yourself breathe -- see above about not complicating things.
  • You can incorporate moon phases into your work if you like - it isn't a necessity, but some people believe it can enhance this particular type of work. Here again, much literature is written on doing certain types of spells at certain moon phases so it won't be repeated here.
  • Don't do revenge work unless someone really deserves it. If they do deserve it, then keep it fair - only ask that they be harmed as much as you were harmed. Don't petition for Susie to fall under a bus unless she pushed you in front of one!
  • Remember that other forms of witchcraft (such as Wicca) have totally different ideas, belief systems, and rules about spell casting -- they don't apply here, but should not be ignored if you are using Wiccan spell-casting products (which ours are not).
  • There are some situations which warrant stronger magick than ONOTW offers. Only you can be the true judge of what your needs are. However, you are welcome to write and ask us for our opinion on what might be best to use for your situation. Please be aware when writing that we do not offer teachings at this time. We will, however, recommend which of our products might best serve your purpose towards a particular goal. We may recommend something other that ONOTW products if we feel the situation warrants it.
