Our newest Voodoo Doll/Poppet is available in our Cynnamon Charmed Shop HERE. Be aware that these do go quickly. Although completely unique...there will be more dolls posted as made.
This is a 12” minimum doll in cotton with poly-fil. The poly-fil is mixed with our Healing Herbal Blend giving it healing energy and making it smell wonderful. When the heart is sewn into place I place 2 Amethyst chips and 1 Quartz chip inside to bring love within the heart and then I fill it full with our Cynnamon Charmed Love Herbal Blend. Unique to my dolls, you will find a pocket on their backs. This pocket is so that the person using them can add other herbs, crystals, or personal items to personalize or bring certain energy to the doll. My thought was this: Say the doll is your personal poppet and you need to do healing, to the pocket you may add healing herbs and gemstones. For a while, you may use the doll to do work related to that healing. However, when you are finished you could discard those items (in the way you see fit based on your own tradition) and then maybe replace with ones for love or money to use the doll for another purpose later on. The back of the head is also bare so that the person could, if they choose, pin a picture to it of who the doll represents. 6 pearl pins (pictured in the heart) will be included with purchase of doll.
Pictures of the doll and creation process in this description are specific to this doll! Look at the last picture to see what thread options are available in the Personalization kit.
This doll symbolically: (this is what I see but you may see something completely different and that is JUST as valid here)
• All the colors of elements are represented within this doll to bring the energy of all four elements.
• The doll is made using a green cotton which gives it a feminine feel to me. Reminds me of the Earth and Taurus.
• The star close to the heart represent the pentacle and the key represents the crone goddess.
• The Gold on the feet and hands, as well as the colors on the pocket bring the more masculine aspect to the doll.
• The dolls hair is made of grey yarn and is hot glued into place. It is put up into a high pony tail and secured with a silver colored metal piece.
• “x” on the arms and legs show the scars and marks on the physical body.
• It is then finished with a huge heart to represent just that…a large loving heart full of love of the earth and its life (represented by the tree pattern on the heart.
• the imperfect stitching in this doll is important to show that we too our imperfect in our design.
• Maybe for some the one eye represents the all seeing eye, while for others it could represent how we are blind in one eye to sense of seeing what we want…..many possibilities here.
• For some, the pocket on the back of the doll could represent the baggage that we carry.
Because I believe in personalization of these dolls, I am offering mine with personalization kits. This kit will contain an embroidery needle and 2 embroidery threads of your choice in color. This is so that, upon arrival, you can personalize these with markings of your own, by your own hand, and putting your own energy and intention into it. I could easily offer these as pre- personalized poppets but I feel that I would be missing the mark by doing that and you would be getting less than you deserve. Even if you have never sewn a thing, it’s about the intention, not the final product. It’s about putting some of yourself into your tool. To help you this kit will also include a quick and easy guide for a basic stitch you can choose to use in customizing your doll.
When it comes to these dolls there are many different thoughts of use or beliefs on how and why they are used. You are more than capable of making those decisions for yourself but let me share some of my own ideas and thoughts. For myself, I have a single doll I use as a personal poppet. She is completely personalized to me. She is red showing me as a Leo and my fire element yet she is marked in many areas with green because of my Earth element, Taurus, ascendant. On her feet are skulls showing that I walk the path of my ancestors and my heart is white (showing purity) but covered with black moon and stars (showing that they live within my heart/ or I hold them close to the heart), as well as the yin/yang aspect of the black/white. You will find my sun sign symbols embroidered into it. She is not perfect in her making, nor as am I. She looks as though she is falling apart at the seams, in some areas, and like only threads may be holding her together in others. Down to the core, there are many times I feel that same way. I have drawn on my tattoos to mark her body the same way as my own. And I even have 2 pink C-section scars and 1 blue for each of my children. The point here, is just how personal you can make these and the more personal the better they are for symbolizing and representing yourself. Ultimately, these are used to focus our energy. For example: maybe, I am focusing on mending a broken heart. So I write out my intentions and I pin it to the heart of my doll to focus my energy to that space. In addition, I add to her pocket, gemstones that bring love and peaceful energy as well as the Love Herbal Blend. These dolls are, again, a tool to help us focus and direct energy and they are very valuable when used correctly. Now, I have another doll that I use for other people. This doll is more generic in its design but I can personalize its pocket with something personal of that person for things like healing. Hollywood has shown these dolls primarily for evil for many years, giving them a bad rap. The truth is that the magick they contain comes from the practitioner directing it.
