A staple in African-American folk magic and one of our most powerful conjure oils, High John the Conqueror oil has a rich history and a number of uses including but not limited to: Money drawing, love/lust, games of chance, success, domination work, getting your way, libido, virility and power. Our formula contains genuine High John the Conqueror root. The root that this oil is named after was traditionally carried as lucky amulet. The root’s namesake was said to be John the Conqueror, a legend in African American folklore. John, said to be the son of an African king, was captured as a slave. He was described as never being subservient and outwitting his captors.


There is an old blues song “My John the Conquer Root” written by Willie Dixon and recorded by Muddy waters in 1964 that perfectly encapsulates the power of High John the conqueror root. “My pistol may snap, my mojo is frail but I rub my root, my luck will never fail…I was accused of murder in the first degree the judges wife cried, “Let the man go free!” I was rubbing my root, my john the conquer root….Oh, I can get in a game, don’t have a dime, All I have to do is rub my root, I win every time…”
