Protective Mojo Bag

A protective mojo bag, or a gris-gris bag, is a powerful charm used to ward off negative energies, provide spiritual protection, and promote personal safety. Incorporating Patchouli leaves into your mojo bag adds grounding and protective properties to enhance its effectiveness. Follow these step-by-step instructions to create your own protective mojo bag using Patchouli leaves:

Materials Needed:

  • Small black pouch, sachet or piece of fabric
  • Patchouli leaves 
  • Additional protective herbs (such as sage, bay leaves, or rosemary)
  • Crystals or gemstones (such as black tourmaline, obsidian, or hematite)
  • Protective essential oil (such as frankincense, cedarwood, or juniper)
  • A small piece of paper and a pen
  • Ribbon or string


  1. Set Your Intention: Establish a clear intention for your protective mojo bag. Visualises the bag as a powerful talisman shielding you from harm and negative energies.
  2. Prepare Your Ingredients: Gather your Patchouli leaves, additional protective herbs, crystals or gemstones, and protective essential oil. Ensure that all ingredients are cleansed and charged with your intention.
  3. Write Your Intention: Take a small piece of paper and write down your intention for protection. Be specific about the type of protection you seek (e.g., physical safety, psychic defence, spiritual shielding). Fold the paper and set it aside.
  4. Assemble Your Mojo Bag: Begin filling your fabric pouch with the ingredients. Start by placing a handful of Patchouli leaves into the pouch. Add a pinch of each additional protective herb and one or two small crystals or gemstones. If using essential oil, place a drop or two onto the herbs.
  5. Add Your Intention: Place the folded paper with your written intention into the pouch. Visualise your intention merging with the ingredients, amplifying the bag’s protective properties.
  6. Close and Seal the Bag: Pull the edges of the fabric pouch together and tie them securely with a ribbon or string. As you tie the bag, focus on sealing in the protective energies and affirming your intention.
  7. Activate Your Mojo Bag: Hold the completed mojo bag and speak aloud or silently, affirming protection. Visualise a powerful shield surrounding you, fueled by the mojo bag’s energies.
  8. Carry or Place Your Mojo Bag: Keep your protective mojo bag with you at all times or in a specific place where you need protection (e.g., under your pillow, in your purse, or near your front door). Recharge the bag periodically by exposing it to moonlight or sunlight or by adding more essential oil.
