Mojo Bags, Conjure Bags, Gris Gris Bags, Mojo Hands, Nation Sacks, and Root Bags…Essentially, all of these are the same thing – a charm or spell in a bag.
Traditionally, a mojo bag is a 2 inch by 3 inch drawstring bag made out of red flannel, chamois, or leather into which special herbs, stones, personal effects, roots, bones, coins, metal lucky charms, crystals, good luck tokens, carved stones, and European seals and sigils that have been written on parchment paper. Other colors can also be used according to their magickal symbolism.
You should only put an odd number of items into your gris gris bag; never less than three and never more than thirteen.
The items are blessed as they are placed into the bag and the whole bag is dressed with anointing oil. It is then smudged in incense of some kind, or breathed upon, which is said to activate the magick!
