Galangal root or alphinia species, also known as little john, chewing john, or galingale. Used for centuries because of its warming effect it has on the body.
Magickal uses include winning in court, doubling money, hex breaking and sex magick. Carry for protection, to improve psychic abilities, and to bring good health.
Wrap money around the root and it will multiply threefold.
Burn as incense to remove evil spells and break curses.
Carry to court to make the judge or jury feel favorably inclined toward you. Reputedly, chewing the root and then spitting on the floor of a courtroom before the judge takes the bench will ensure a legal outcome in your favor. (Of course, you might want to hire a lawyer, too.)
Burn vigilantly for 14 days before a court case, saving the ashes and bringing them to court in a green flannel bag for luck.
Also Called: Lo John, Low John, Lo John the Conqueror, Lesser Galangal, Galanga, Colic Root, Gargaut, Catarrh Root, India Root, China Root
