These are the ingredients to do a nasty cursing/crossing spell jar. It can be used on a single target, on a couple, or on multiple targets. Depending on how you treat several variables, you can use this as a serious hotfoot spell, as an extra-strength breakup spell, as a DUME working, as a revenge working, to cause sickness, etc. This kind of spell is not a first line of defense and it’s not very nice, so it’s used only after other measures have failed or been too slow to work in cases where someone is threatening someone else’s life, family, children, etc. If you use this on a neighbor for parking on your side of the street, you’re really shooting a tiger with an elephant gun, for instance.
Kit includes all your herbs, oil, instructions, and nine pins, nine needles, and nine coffin nails.
If you know anything about modern funeral practices and mortuary laws, it’s probably occurred to you that most of the coffin nails you see for sale on various websites and in various occult supply stores could not possibly have come from an actual coffin in which somebody was actually buried. The days of being able to access those old-school types of graveyard materia magica are over. So no, I did not rob a grave in order to provide these traditional hoodoo curios, and it’s highly unlikely that coffin nails you get anywhere are going to have come from an actual coffin – not if you’re paying a few dollars for them, anyway. Modern coffins are often not made of wood anyway, and when they are, they are generally constructed with wood glue, screws, and joint fasteners (like big industrial staples) – NOT with nails. (If there are any nails in a modern casket, they are likely to be put there by the upholsterer who does the fabric lining, and are more likely to be technically "brads" rather than "nails." They most certainly do not look like the traditional "coffin nail" curio.) So don’t get all hung up on whether or not your coffin nails have come from a real coffin – chances are they haven’t.
However, that does not mean you can’t use the old-school spells that call for them anymore. Modern practitioners adapt and adjust to the times as necessary in creating and obtaining their curios. The difference with me is that I’m up front about what I change or adjust, how, and why (hence my long and numerous posts on black cat bones, various animal curios, etc.)
These coffin nails are made from the appropriate type of wood nail which I then antique for that authentic rusty look, and "bury" by interring them in a box of graveyard dirt on the appropriate altar. The finished product thus has the association with the resting place of the deceased that is appropriate to their use.
Listing is for 9 nails.
This is a packet of 5 Hoodoo Nails. Where Coffin Nails are for use in works of malice, crossing, causing sickness, breaking up, etc., sometimes nails are called for in old-time spells for other uses, involving binding people, carving candles or other things, "nailing down" a person, object, or even property to keep hold of it, etc. I call these Hoodoo Nails for lack of a better name. They can be used in the famous "railroad spike" protection spell, if railroad spikes are too large, obtrusive, or difficult to get. They can also be used in Protection workings to call on St. Michael, and dressed to serve as a token of St. Michael’s Sword in mojo bags, spell bottles, and amulets or paket charms.
These are large, square-cut nails about three inches long. If you aren’t familiar with woodwork and nails and the like, they are not a proper square – more rectangular – and the end is fairly blunter than what you probably picture when you think of a nail. But they go into the ground easily, and with the right hammer or mallet you can pound them into other things as well, such as trees or lumber.
