The ‘wanga’ or the Voodoo doll, is one of the tools that are used in Voodoo practices. This practice involves a magic charm that is produced for malignant purposes. But, as the centuries passed, Voodoo practices change. The usage of a Voodoo doll was then fashioned for seeking death or even revenge. There is a great difference between the wood, wax, and other images that are related to the medieval Black Magic with the Voodoo Doll. The main difference is the preparation method, as well as the rituals. The purpose and preparation are the two main deciding factors. Practicing Voodoo is no joke, so this article will help you understand how not to only use the dolls but also how to prepare for this task.

Voodoo Doll Colors, Meanings, and Ritual Preparations

Listed below are the preparation as well as the ritual for negative purposes such as revenge, that was used back in the days.

  • Get a small piece of subject’s clothing and put it on the doll. You also need to attach another article of the person such as hair, nail cuttings, or etc.
  • Add a drop of animal or human blood to the cloth. You also need to put it on the article of the person. Put it also inside the doll through opening a seam and then sewing it back tightly again after you have placed the items inside.
  • In making the doll, it should have mouth, eyes, and a cross that signifies the heart. These could either be sewn or painted. The back should contain the Voodoo sign.
  • You need to lay the prepared doll on the paper or cloth between two black candles. Do this at midnight. You need to have something made of iron, such as a piece of nail, to place on the head of a doll.
  • You should put Voodoo fashion with Jinx oil or crossing to the candles, afterwards, you need to light it.
  • Rub the oil from the center of the candle going to the top starting from the center to the bottom. This is the proper way to anoint it. This stroke is never done in one direction only.

Reciting These Rituals

After you have light the candles, make sure to utter the following words to mark the beginning of the ritual or spell:

“Be you gone and may you, (name is spoken), rot in the grave.

Damballah, curse him as I curse him and spoil him as I spoil him. By the fire at night, by the dead black hen, by the bloody throat, by the goat, by the rum on the ground, this ouanga be upon him. May he have no peace in bed, nor at his food, nor can he go and hide. Waste him and wear him and tear him and rot him as these rot.”

This Voodoo practices and rituals has an unknown meaning and origin. However, the chant we have just mentioned is also used for success and almost any other rituals.

The next day, wrap the doll in pink cloth and make sure to put it in a cabinet or drawer near a window. Make sure to take it out if you want to repeat the ritual.


In performing Voodoo Practices, there are special things that you need to do after the chant, such as burning, sticking pins into the doll, tying a small rope or a thread around the neck, put it in a coffin-like box or even bury it in the ground. Sometimes, two dolls are used to make the spell more effective. One is used during the practice while the other one is hidden in the house of the victim. All the candles used in the practices should be burned to the socket and each candle should have its own holder.
