R is for Red Brick Dust
Red Brick Dust aka Brick Dust, Red Dust, Reddening or Red Power is a powder which is used in African centric and folk magick traditions. The use of it originates from red ochre which was used by various ancestral traditions. Red Brick Dust is used for protection (especially of one’s home or business), hex breaking as well as being used to colour bones or runes used in spirit, animal or ancestor veneration.
Tina’s Red Brick Dust Technique (© T. Georgitsis 2014)
- Red Brick (preferably sourced new or from a building/home which isn’t connected to anything negative like an asylum or prison);
- Hammer; and
- Old Pillowcase.
- Place the brick in the pillow case and twist the end and hold down on the ground firmly whilst you use the other hand to pummel the brick into dust.
Simple Use for Red Brick Dust
Sprinkle across doorways, windows and around property for blessed protection at dawn in a clockwise/deosil motion. Will also counteract hexing powders which have been laid upon you by simply sprinkling the Red Brick Dust on top of them.
