OLD STYLE CONJURE HOODOO ROOTWORK
When I first got on the web many years, ago it seemed that no one on the web thought Hoodoo, Rootwork, or Conjure work was important. I was laughed at and told, "Hoodoo Conjure work is just ole wives' tales." Today, everyone understands how important Hoodoo, Rootwork or Conjure work really is. Through other ethical workers and the unarguable successes that clients have experienced, Conjure work is now getting the respect that it deserves. A few experienced and hereditary workers have stepped forward to usher the new generation into the powerful conjure work of the American South. It is my hope that this small site will add something useful to the Hoodoo community.
I’m an old style Rootworker or Conjure Doctor and my Rootwork or Conjure work, as some call the work, shows this. I chose not to add a title to my name. I am just plain Starr, but other rootworkers do have titles. Some of the titles used in conjure work are, Conjure Doctor, Root Doctor, Rootworker, Professor, Conjurer or just plain Hoodoo. In days gone by most of the workers were either called a Root Doctor, Conjure Doctor, or a Conjurer.
The term root doctor has a lot to do with the ole saying, "He will put the 'roots' on you," meaning you will be crossed up, jinxed, or hoodooed. Roots are also one of the main staples of a Conjure doctor or any rootworker. Roots are often added to mojo bags, spiritual baths and washes. I believe that the root itself holds power.
Momma Starr's Experience and Services
Over the years clients have come to me for many different types of Rootwork. Some of the works I have done are removing crossed conditions, setting conjure vigils, spiritual foot washing, Jinx removing, money work, and honey jars. Over the last 30 years I have done all types of conjure work, but some of my favorites are making my conjure oils, removing jinxed and crossed conditions, setting conjure vigil candles, and teaching.

Opportunities for Learning Conjure
If you are interested in learning rootwork, conjure or hoodoo, I offer mini courses. You can take the mini course and learn a variety of conjure work.
I have decided to limit what I teach to others. I had planned on adding more mini courses to the list of information I am willing to teach. I have since changed my mind. I understand now why old folks don't tell all they know. Some of this work can be dangerous, and when it is put to use it can really be harmful. For this reason I reserve the right to choose who I teach and what I teach them.
Examples of personalized telephone workshops with Momma Starr can be found here.
It's been five years since I put this website up and started serving folks on-line. I must say that the first few years were hard for me because I have always served my clients face to face. By the grace of God I am still here and I hope to be en service
to the folks that need me for a long time to come. I am a true traditional Old Style Conjure worker. You won't find many like me on the web. What we are seeing today is an influx of folks who make high claims but can't back them up. They are mixing and matching then calling it conjure. One thing is for sure, folks who have been around Traditional workers KNOW the difference. Check out the link below and see whats new here at Old Style Conjure. As you can see we have a new face lift. God Bless.
You can now find information on, conjure bags, spiritual foot washing, honey jars, crossed conditions, jinxed, burning Hoodoo vigil candles and much more. Check back and see what's new at OLD STYLE CONJURE.
