~SYNOPSIS~
Hoodoo is a bold spiritual tradition that helps enhance your wellbeing and solve everyday problems. This practical, do-it-yourself guide shows you how to use spells, rites, recipes, mojos, and curios to enrich your life and be ready for whatever comes your way.

365 Days of Hoodoo starts by providing the basics of Hoodoo, and then gradually builds your knowledge day after day. You'll discover the essential components for your practice, how to master the parts of your life that seem out of control, and the various ways Hoodoo can improve love, prosperity, protection, and much more. This impressive book also features lore, prayers, potions, altars, baths, and meditations.

Many times that includes books about obscure subjects, and since my daughter loves all things esoteric I knew that this would potentially make a great Christmas gift for her.

3.5 Stars

This book is divided into three sections (including an extensive introduction) with each section being broken down into several chapters. Each of the sections begins with an introduction, followed by spells, rites, altars, ceremonies, recipes, and tricks. At the end of each section, there is a blank space for you to write down any personal thoughts you may have.

— Section I (Hoodoo’s Fixin’s).
— Section II (Tricks of the Hoodoo’s Trade: Spells, Rites & More).
— Section III (Disturb Me Not: Shielding, Noticing & Undoing Negativity).

descriptionThis book is described as being aimed at both newbies and experienced practitioners alike. It begins with an overview of Hoodoo including its history and origin. Sprinkled throughout are special pages called HOODOO’S GARDEN AND CURIOS OF NOTE. which include step-by-step directions to growing and harvesting special herbs to use in your practice. 

Unfortunately, my ARC copy didn’t include any graphics or fun typography. This may be due to the file format that was available to me, but I was certainly disappointed by that as the visual aspect of these type of books is often one of the main selling points. That aside, the book was still a fascinating read and would certainly make a great gift.
