In Hoodoo, there are many spells (also referred to as tricks or jobs) related to career issues. One of the herbs (a tuber) used for this area of magick is called Little John to Chew, or simply Little John. The botanical name is Alpinia galanga, and it is also called greater galangal.
Little John resembles ginger in taste, medicinal qualities, and structure. It calms the stomach, deodorizes the mouth and body, soothes frazzled nerves, and, most importantly here, appeals to your boss, for today is Boss’s Day.
For this spell, obtain a fresh Little John to Chew root. Shred some of it into small pieces (about a teaspoon). When you approach your boss’s office or your would-be boss’s location, begin chewing the prepared root. State your complaint, desires, or wishes to the boss while chewing Little John. Once outside, spit it out on the property. Your wishes will be heard and respected by the boss. Happy Boss’s Day!
