Ghost Haunted Zombie Bottle Voodoo Dolls A New Orleans Original voodoo Item From The Secret Society of Marie Laveau.

 

GET YOUR HANDS ON A GENUINE ZOMBIE SPIRIT BOTTLE AND FEEL THE MOJO MOVE YOU

Spirit bottles and spells have been preserved in many cultures and traditions, but most of what we know about them comes to us from the practice of the hoodoo rootworkers and conjurers who plied their trade years ago throughout the rural South and parts of the American heartland.

Most of the hoodoo man’s “prescriptions” for repelling evil involved the use of visual objects of one kind or another. It was not uncommon to find rocks, wire fencing and even old tires arranged in specific designs meant to serve the dual purpose of attracting fortune and keeping bad luck and evil away.

The most intriguing of these hoodoo artifacts are now rarely seen though they were once a staple part of the Southern landscape: this is the spirit bottle tree.

The belief in and use of spirit bottles can be traced back to 9th and 10th century Congo where colorful bottles, traditionally cobalt blue, were placed on the ends of tree branches to catch the sunlight. It was thought that when an evil spirit sees the sunshine dazzling from the beautiful bottles, it is enamored and enters the bottle. Like a fly, the spirit then becomes trapped within the bottle; too dazzled by the play of light, the spirit prefers to remain in its colorful prison, rather than trouble the world of the living.


This long-standing African tradition was brought to the Americas with the slave diasporas of the 17th and 18th centuries and it is a fact that everywhere there are peoples of African descent, the use of spirit bottles and spirit bottle spells can be found among them.


In Dahomey as well as in the Congo the spirit bottles were often used to encase the spirit of deceased loved ones; bottles also might be used to contain protective household spirits. These latter spirits, once encased in the bottle, would be placed in a prominent spot near the front door of the home where, in exchange for their protection, the keepers would make regular offerings to keep the spirit fed and happy.

Once it was introduced to the West, the native peoples of the New World readily understood and adapted the spirit bottle practice producing many different varieties for a myriad of uses.

In Haiti, the African tradition of warding off evil was adapted to trapping the spiritual essence of everything from an animal to a love object inside the bottle. Once trapped inside, it was believed, the spirit was at the command of the keeper – in many instances a Bokor voodoo priest intent on doing harm, but just as often a spirit bottle might be kept by an amorous suitor eager to make a certain loved one cleave only to him or her.

Throughout Latin America the spirit bottle or charm bottle could be easily recognized by the elaborate painting and artwork that often decorated the exterior. Some of these bottles, dedicated to saints or Santerian orishas, were kept for the purposes of healing as well as good fortune and often medicinal herbs and philters were kept in these containers. It was commonly believed that the spirit in the bottle would enhance the efficacy of the medicine and help speed the recovery to the keeper.



In the American South, local conjurers employed bottles of many different colors; though cobalt blue traditionally remained the most popular other colors, such as amber, rose and yellow were also used for specific purposes. Often elaborate carved stoppers, reminiscent of the protective ancestor bottles of the African Congo, were placed on the hoodoo man’s conjure bottles with each color addressing a specific request or need of the client.

In the Mid-Atlantic States and New England the spirit bottle was familiar as the “witch bottle” and served the similar purpose of warding off evil spirits, in this case the witch and his or her dangerous evil eye. Philters were often stored in charm bottles to enhance the potency of the medicine but also to keep witches from tampering with it. Tradition also dictated that some bottles be encased in elaborate twined knots which, it was believed, the intruding witch could not resist unraveling, thus forgetting all about the potion inside.


Rare Spirit Bottles


New Orleans own Zombie Spirit bottles also had negative connotations among certain rural populations where many feared being trapped by in a bottle by the hoodoo man to be perpetually under his command; bottles such as these were a fearful discovery on many doorsteps, including many a porch stoop in old New Orleans.

Here, the multiple traditions of the spirit bottles combined in a unique expression of local beliefs and practices. Marie Laveau often distributed her potions and cures in magically charged bottles; only a few genuine examples of her Zombie spirit bottles are extant today and are extremely expensive collectibles. More common are the homemade bottles of Marie Laveau’s devotees and of the local Cajun traiteurs: it is not uncommon to find these antique examples of local vodoun culture hidden with other significant objects under floorboards or behind bricks in many of the old Creole cottages in and around New Orleans.

Today, the spirit, zombie and spell bottle traditions are being kept alive by the descendants of the original practitioners of the vodoun culture in New Orleans, many of whom learned the art of making and charging the powerful bottles from relatives who were contemporaries of the great New Orleans Voodoo Queens. Plain, painted, decorated with elaborate voodoo doll heads and arms or with simple feathers and strings, all are equally as potent and should be handled with care. But if treated correctly, these unique voodoo artifacts will become treasured possessions of any collector.

 

New Orleans REAL Zombie Spirit Bottles

"Spirit bottles" were once popular funerary objects and placed beside the feet of the corpse, in which to "keep" the spirit of the dead person in southern Louisiana during the Southern the period prior to the Civil War. The bottles could be decorated and topped with a a head for a lid. The decoration can consist actual bodies to hand decorations and paper mache or cloth.

Some had painted pictures of the deceased on the bottle or patterns, the long neck would at times be painted with portraits of the dead person, flowers, or relief sculptures o the person or of a Zombies and New Orleans own secret Hoodoo voodoo designs and figures covering the whole of the bottle.

VOODOO DOLL HISTORY

It’s safe to assume that everyone has heard about voodoo dolls and thinks they’ve pretty much grasped the concept. After all, what could be more simple? A little cloth cut to look like a person, a little stuffing (preferably some rotting Spanish moss), some twine, a Sharpie marker to make the features, and a big box of shiny new pins can provide hours of nasty, furtive fun to the discontented or just mischief-minded among us.

Or, perhaps you’ve encountered them dressed in Mardi Gras hues, complete with feathers and primitive features, glued to magnets and grinning from the refrigerator door as a little memento of a visit to New Orleans.

But is this all that’s behind the mystique and seduction of these popular little creatures? Mostly harmless and merely decorative?
