(1) How does Voodoo Authentica make Voodoo objects?
These are all practitioner-made items. This work is not a sideline for Voodoo Authentica people; it is their art form, their Spirituality, their living, all in one. Also, our ingredients are the finest. Top grade herbs, the best oils on the market, and so on. Our crafts and other unique items are all handmade, one at a time. Each doll has a personality, every potion is hand-blended in small batches; all of our items are Blessed, everything is local (no "Made in China" dolls!), you get the picture.
We believe in what we're doing, have great respect for the Afro-Diasporic cultures, and take our time to do things right. Voodoo Authentica of New Orleans is a "grassroots" company run by local practitioners, primarily for locals. We know that it is much more expensive to have the local community of artists, Spiritualists, Priests, and so on working with us; sure, we could buy "Voodoo dolls" from overseas, or have them made by God knows who, putting God knows what kind of energy into the items. Doing that would defeat the purpose of this business, which was started to promote local New Orleanians, their authentic/creative arts and crafts and the Voodoo religion.
(2) Does Voodoo Authentica perform Spiritual Rituals? If yes, how do I learn more?
Yes, we definitely do perform Spiritual Work; our heavy duty rituals are done only by initiated Practitioners. We'd have to know what type of work - everything begins with a consultation to evaluate the situation.
(3) Can people really do readings over the phone?
It is possible to do very meaningful readings over the phone. As several
of our clients move from time to time, or live out of town year round, we
regularly do telephone consultations to accommodate them and do offer this
service with caring, authentic practitioners. You can find out more by visiting our Spiritual Consultations Page.
