The Bewitchingee Workshop
& Altars for Setting Lights
The following are photos of the Bewitchingbee Workshop and the Workshop Altars that I use for the work I do for my clients and also for personal work. By "work", I mean spiritual work or what hoodoo practitioners would call rootwork. The types of rootwork I typically do are: crafting Mojo Bags, Honey Jar Spells, Altar work, Prayers, Spiritual Petitions, Oil Lamps and Candle Magic- such as Setting Lights, Moving Candle Spells, Candle Divinations and such. My workshop is also the place where I speak with clients, do consultions and divinations, and where I make spiritual baths, powders, condition oils, Spell Kits and most of the other magical supplies listed on the web site.

Some of the Workshop Altars. In the corner is our Ancestor Spirit Altar used to venerate Loved Ones, family or friends, who have passed over. I also set lights to aid the crossing over of the newly deceased, resistant, or lost spirits, often by petitioning the aid of Our Lady of Grace and/ or St. Anthony . The Workshop at night. Many candles can be seen burning along the back wall altars for : Protection, Spiritual Healing, and Spiritual Retribution.

Those who are LOST or MISSING. This is a Specialized Workshop Altar for Missing Persons, a cause very dear to me.
