    Why do you practice this?
    I have a very good friend of mine, she practices wicca but she is the sweetest and best friend I could have.
    I don't understand why she feels the need to engage in this.
    Going against ones will is not right!

    I think you should read about Hoodoo instead of making assumptions about it.

    Or maybe he should even try Hoodoo before he makes prejudgments about it.



    @Topic

    I am thinking that Hoodoo is the same as Voodoo, correct?

    Hoodoo also called "rootwork" is a magical system utilizing herbs, candles, oils and roots, among other things, that is practiced traditionally by Black people in the United States.

    Voodoo, more properly spelled Vodou (Haitian) or Vodun (Dahomean, Ghanian and Togolese) is a belief system(s) with spirits called lwa or vodu in Africa, originally, and mixed with Catholicism in Haiti.

    Do you play with herbs?

    I definately make use of herbs, I have got tons of herbs, I have even rashioned out some of my herbs. Friends and family are always calling me, needing me to prescribe an herb to help rid themselvs of this or that. I reckon hoodoo goes further than just sharing and using herbs eh?
