They’ve been called many things through the years: doll-babies, effigies, dollies, fetishes, and, yes, even voodoo dolls.

Each magical tradition has its own relationship with poppets. From the materials used to form the poppet, to the items incorporated into the poppet, to the colors used, to the methods of working a spell on a finished poppet, to safely disposing of a poppet.
It’s important to do your research before working with poppets, so look for books that explain poppet magic in a way that matches how you want to work with them.
These books can guide you through creating a poppet to match your intention. They instruct you on the proper mindset for working with a poppet. They walk you through rituals and spells to correctly use your poppet.
Poppets are powerful, but so is knowledge, so make sure you have the information you need before proceeding.
