Van Van oil is a very old, very traditional, very popular formula which comes from the New Orleans area. It is a blend of five Asiatic grasses, the most dominant of which is lemongrass, and has a pleasant exotic citrus aroma. This is easily one of the top ten most popular hoodoo products; as it can be used to open the way for new opportunities, clear away evil, change luck from bad to good, assist with gambling, and dress lucky charms or amulets. Van Van is the oil most commonly used to dress traditional good luck charms such as rabbit feet, and is one of the most popular oils used to feed lodestones.
The name 'van van' refers to the plant lemon verbena, whose scent the oil somewhat resembles (althoughlemon verbena is not included in the Van Van formula). An alternate name for verbena is 'vervain', and in the Creolised French dialect of Louisiana this would be pronounced 'vah vahn', which became 'van van' in popular parlance.

The bottle contains genuine lemongrass, as well as a small piece of pyrite to bump up the luck factor. (You can take this out when the bottle is empty, and add to a mojo hand.) It is a genuine, old time recipe, and our special blend of exotic ingredients come together to create one of the freshest and most popular condition oils we offer
To bring good luck with money (especially when gambling), take a whole nutmeg and dress it with Van Van oil. (To do this, pour some Van Van oil into the palm of one hand, rub your hands together to spread the oil between them and heat it up, then rub the nutmeg between your palms, coating it in oil. While doing this, recite the 23rd Psalm for prosperity. Once this is done, wrap the nutmeg in red thread so that it is completely covered. Tie it off using three knots, and keep as a pocket piece when gambling or when spending money. Dress with Van Van oil on a weekly basis to keep it strong, and pray the 23rd Psalm each time this is done.
"This oil is amazing. It smells so good!"
