This High John Sachet Powder can be very useful for spells of good luck, protection, and prosperity. The use of sprinkling and blowing powders -- usually called sachet (pronounced "sashay") powders -- has been a part of hoodoo practice for a very long time. It is likely that the use of such powders combines African and European magical traditions. In the 19th and 20th centuries, these powders were used in several different ways, and they seem to derive from various strands of African diaspora and European-American folk-magic. Sachet powder is often used in combination with the making of gris-gris bags or other private rituals.
