Got myself some Gris Gris, tote it up in a sack
Gonna keep on wearin' it till I get my good man back"

A Gris Gris Bag is a fabric-wrapped personal charm which can contain a variety of potent ingredients - herbs, roots, bones, stones and other powerful items. In New Orleans, we use Gris Gris Bags to assist us with drawing Love, Health, Good Luck and a variety of other positive influences.
While the creation and carrying of Gris Gris is definitively traced back to West Africa, where it continues today, its usage is also prominent here in the American South. The specific rituals, prayers & ingredients involved in creating a Gris Gris vary from region to region. At Voodoo Authentica of New Orleans, we create ours by hand mixing herbs, roots and other ingredients that correspond Spiritually with the specific purpose of each Gris Gris Bag. We pray over the ingredients and tie them into bags, using the fabric color which aligns with that purpose. The Gris Gris is then dressed with one of Voodoo Authentica’s Blessed Potion Oils. We pray and focus on the bag’s intention throughout the entire process.
A Gris Gris Bag should be carried or worn by its recipient. Many say that a person should never open their bag, get it wet, or let others touch it. The idea is that the power will "spill out" if the bag is opened or gets wet, and that another person may put the wrong influence into the bag by touching a Gris Gris that isn't their own.
To keep the bag “charged,” it should be meditated/focused with regularly and re-anointed with the appropriate Blessed Potion Oil from time to time. This continues to empower your bag and broadcast your desires 24/7, assisting you in manifesting your goals.
Complete with instructions. These Gris Gris Bags are made with only the finest herbs, roots, potion oils, and other powerful ingredients. They are all made, blessed, and empowered by authentic New Orleans Voodoo practitioners.
