Legends of Incense, Herb, & Oil Magic. By Lewis de Claremont.


Esoteric Students’ Handbook of Legendary Formulas and Facts.

From 1936, when it burst on the scene, until 2006, when it went out of print, Legends of Incense, Herb, and Oil Magic was an occult shop classic. The first non-academic book that taught African American hoodoo folk magic, it was advertised in Black-owned newspapers nationwide and became many a rural rootworker’s introduction to the convenience of mail-order spiritual supplies. The author, whose name was certainly not “Lewis de Claremont” took the secret of his identity to the grave, but the formulas he introduced and his descriptions of down-home tricks with herbs, candles, incense, powders, baths, and talismans are recognized as the foundation of modern hoodoo. On the 80th anniversary of its original publication, the Lucky Mojo Curio Company is proud to present a restored and revised edition of this important text, edited by Catherine yronwode. Filled with curious lore and useful tips, this beautifully illustrated book belongs in every conjure worker’s library.
