With doors and windows ajar, and people coming and going with the breeze, one’s attention might turn to natural protection magick in the summer. You can build your psychic armor with the protective energy of Goofer Dust by borrowing this traditional Hoodoo formula. Add it to your repertoire of home and hearth protection potions. Take time out of your busy day to make and use some of this fierce protective dust.
Goofer Dust is designed to protect your space from disruptive spirits (hants) and negative human energy. Here’s the recipe:
Mix equal parts sulfur (brimstone), sea salt, cayenne powder, and black pepper (powdered) and you’ll have homemade Goofer Dust. Make enough of the powder for the job at hand.
You’ll want to spread this in a protective ring around your property. If it is an apartment, loft or condo, make enough to spread out in front of your door. This dust protects the home, blowing forcefully toward bad energy spread by intruders with malicious intentions.

Once upon a time, this formula was a mainstay of folk healers, who used it to treat anemia. Although its medical uses are no longer popular, this remains a very important formula.
War water is used for:
- To gain protection. This is a very aggressive, forceful, spiritual cleanser.
- To reverse a curse and send it back where it came from.
- To place a curse. War Water is a traditional and allegedly potent weapon during psychic warfare and witch wars.
War water can be used in:
- Bath spells
- Floor washes
- To splash on a door step or other target.
- It can also be added to or used in spell work for protection, cleansing, reversal spells, hex work and more.
How to make simple standard Protective War Water:
Place iron nails in a mason jar. Cut iron nails are recommended because they rust very easily, but any iron nails may be used. Add enough water to cover the nails. Leave this undisturbed until rust begins to form, typically within seven to ten days. Although the jar is usually kept shut, it should be opened periodically to encourage oxidation.
Once the rusting process begins, more water may be added. Keep the jar in a refrigerator or other cool area. Stir as needed.
You may continue adding water to the original nails virtually indefinitely. Some people have a War Water starter lasting years, akin to a sour dough starter. However, should mold or bacteria ever form, discard everything, including the jar and start again from the beginning.
How to make simple standard Malevolent War Water:
- Collect water from a fierce thunderstorm in a jar.
- Add rusty nails, sulfur, and some of your own urine.
- Store this in a cold, dry place until you need it.
This version is used to either place or reverse a hex. The rusted nails from the Protective Formula may be used to create the Malevolent version.
