Online Reference For Body, Mind & Spirit

Term: Poppet

DEFINITION:
A doll made to represent a person for the use of magic on that person. It may look like that person, but is more often primitive and symbolic, made of wax, clay, cloth, paper, or other materials. It is believed to work according to the ideas of “like attracts like,” or sympathetic magic.

As with any form of magic, the nature of work with a poppet is neutral. It can be used as a focus for a healing ritual or to bring prosperity, wisdom, or romance. However, it can also be used to harm. The most famous example of this is the famous sticking of pins into the doll to negatively affect a person in the area where the pin is inserted.
