The cost of ceremonies covers offerings to the applicable Orishas, space rental or host gifts, compensation of specialists, transportation, and supplies for the making of charms. We take photos and send them to you by email, so you can see what is being done with your money.
On this page, we describe some of the ceremonies and give a rough estimate of the costs. It may be a little more or less, depending on your needs. There may also be special instructions for you that you should be prepared to carry out in order to ensure success. You can get more details and a fuller list of the ceremonies and root works that we do at our site ObeahWoman.com
Any charms, talismans, or other items made for your ceremony that you should keep will be sent to you by EMS express mail.
If you are about to enter a dangerous situation, there are specific ceremonies for protection depending on what it is you’re about to do. Generally though, this is the department of Eshu. He usually requires 3 chickens for junior enlisted servicemen, students, interns, manual laborers, etc. and 6 for NCO’s, officers, and professionals. For both, we need a bottle of rum. We do an ebo either in a park or on my balcony, depending on privacy concerns. From the ashes, we make three talisman pendants. Aside of this, one may give as they can afford, but the minimum is $200.
Romantic Love/Attraction/Fertility Ceremonies
Romantic love ceremonies require offerings to Oshun. We make her two large honey cakes from scratch, and give fruits, delicacies, pumpkins or butternut squashes, and must go to a place with flowing fresh water where there is privacy so we don’t get fined or accused of the bad kind of witchcraft.
If you are female, we must then also give offerings to Yemaya, giving sea shells or fish back to the ocean. If you are male, then we must give offerings to Shango of corn porridge and peppers. We make a charm for you to wear, gri-gri according to your needs, and what ever other things that come up in the readings or trance the Spirits feel we should give you, with instructions.
If possible, you should also send us a shirt that you have worn after a shower but without deodorant, so that we can create a custom attraction or mood lifting oil for you. All together, our costs are around $300-$700 depending on the situation and what is needed to make the gri gri and charms.
These require an ebo, but we have different plans based on what one can afford. Consider that the Orishas know what you are capable of paying. We are also obligated to be mindful not to take more than a person can truly afford to give. For people who are having a tough time of it, you can contribute to our yearly ebo/festival for Oshun and Aje Shaluga. We have this in August, as time and scheduling permits.
For those who are in a stable position or running a business, and want to ensure success, you may sponsor a special ebo during the spring and summer months for $2000. This is a big ebo on the level of a wedding. The charm we make for the sponsor is a specially crafted gold and silver amulet.
As part of the prosperity ceremony, we can do certain peripheral work to remove obstacles and for protection, for no extra charge. Some examples are evil eye protection, sales attraction, and protection from the authorities. This is very useful for people who operate in legal gray areas or in states with unfair regulation of certain professions such as African/natural hairstylists and braiders.
If you’re already doing well, but just need the protection from authorities ceremony and bochio, this is $700. It requires a week long series of altar work during which the bochio is built.
Others are available, but these are the most common requests. We charge according to our costs because we believe in our work. Once it is successful, you may donate whatever additional amount you feel is appropriate. To make your request, go to our Root Work and Ceremonies page.
