Most traditional hoodoo or voodoo spirit bottles are created and used for protective or healing purposes. In many instances the spirits trapped within the typical Voodoo Spirit Bottle are benevolent and are easily encouraged to act on behalf of their keepers, either in bringing luck or love or in keeping evil far away.

There is, however, a tradition among the vodusi and the hoodoo conjure men of using similar bottles for other, less wholesome purposes; because these bottles are easily mistaken for their more positive cousins, it is important to be able to distinguish between the two.

Common spirit Ghost bottles, houses lost souls.

According to many voodoo priests and mambos, most of their followers go to them for help in troubling situations when issues of sickness, loss of income, troubled children and other family troubles become too much to be handled without the help and intervention of the Lwas, the powerful spirits of Vodoun.

In some instances, however, the source of the problem is not temporal, that is, it has no root in the material world. This includes cases where evil or malevolent spirits are plaguing a family or an individual and will not respond to the prayers, invocations or pleadings of the person or people it is terrorizing.

Often, these people take recourse in the powers of the voodoo priests and mambo, or of the familiar hoodoo conjure man, to rid themselves of the evil spirits they feel are making their lives a living hell.

Just as the power of spells and ritual can be used to encourage Lwas or spirits to act benevolently in a person’s life, so spells and rituals can also be used to bind and control malevolent forces at work on the unseen levels of spiritual existence.

One of the weapons in the voodoo and hoodoo arsenal to combat and contain these destructive entities is the common and multi-purpose spirit bottle. When used by a powerful priest or mambo in the process of exorcising the troubling spirits, the bottle is designed to be the prison for these entities. The voodoo worker can trap several evil-minded spirits in the ritually prepared bottle (the usual number is from one to thirteen) and, through the use of powerful invocations, visual effigies and ritual talismans, can keep the spirits bound in this way indefinitely.
