TV and films typically show poppets as the stereotypical Voodoo doll, poppets have been around for a long time, and used in a number of different cultures and religious beliefs. There are many ways to make a poppet, once the poppet is created, you’ll need to connect it to the person it represents, the poppet is a useful magical tool, and can be used in a variety of workings. You can use it for healing, to banish harmful people from your life, to bring abundance your way, the choice is yours.

A poppet is usually made from cloth or fabric, but you can also make one from clay, wax, wood, or just about any other material. You can fill your poppet with herbs, stones, bits of wood, paper, or anything else that suits your needs. In addition to magical items, it’s a good idea to include some cotton wool or other form of stuffing.

When most people think of a poppet, they automatically think of the Voodoo doll, thanks to this item’s negative portrayal in various media. However, the use of dolls in magic goes back several millennia. Back in the days of ancient Egypt.

When usuing poppets in spell work, remember your poppet represents a person, so figure out before you begin who it’s meant to be, maybe it’s going to be you.

Maybe  its for a friend that has asked you for help or for you if want to bring a lover into your life. Maybe you have an annoying gossip you want to shut up. The possibilities are endless, but just like any spell you’ll need to have a goal in mind before you begin.

When making a poppet you can use various items, colours, crystals, herbs, oils to make it suitable for the spell that you have in mind.
