Handmade Custom Spirit Doll

Item Description

There is nothing attached to this doll. I haven't Worked with her. She came from a local source & the maker is unknown. This is a handmade doll crafted with great care & detail. She is free to work with as you please. 

This specific Spirit doll could easily represent a La Madame Spirit, a Ghitana, or many others, including a Spirit very personal to you.

Though commonly used by practitioners of Santeria, hoodoo and Spiritism, spirit dolls are tools found widely across many religions & practices. A spirit doll is a vessel for powerful spirits to work through. These can be spirits of ancestors, familiars, Orisha's or others.  A spirit doll may aid you through protection of the home, assist you in divination, draw love or good fortune, or act as recipients for offerings to ancestors and familial spirits. 

Your doll should be cleansed and prepared before use. A gentle lake water or spring water bath prepared with purifying herbs would be appropriate. For this specific doll, although sturdy, I recommend a spot clean or sponge method rather than fully submerging the doll. The water may then be disposed of at a crossroads or down the toilet. Afterward, the doll may be fumed with incense, resin or herbs, placed between lit candles with plenty of fresh blessed water offered, and prayed over to request a benevolent spirit to enter and inhabit the doll.

The spirit may be enticed with offerings like food or flowers. The process of praying and offerings may have to be repeated until a spirit makes the choice to enter the doll. There are many ways to tell whether or not a doll is inhabited. One method involves holding your hands over the doll, and asking the spirit to push them away. If your hands move, or you feel a pressure, the doll is successfully inhabited. Another method is to dowse with a pendulum over the doll. In any case, it is recommended that you use the method most comfortable and affective for you. 


Depending on the purpose of the doll, they may or may not be placed on a home altar. Practitioners of Espiritismo and Santeria generally place them in significant spots in the home. They may also be placed at mesitas; tables intended to receive offerings to the spirits housed within the dolls. Dolls that are representations of a deity may go on an altar dedicated to that deity.

Dolls empowered for a specific purpose may go on an altar specifically dedicated to that. For example, you may empower a doll to assist with psychic abilities and place it upon an altar with purple candles and a crystal ball. You may empower a doll to assist with protection and place it upon an altar with white candles, a living cacti and hematite. 


These spirits are by no means enslaved, nor are they like genies that serve a master's every whim. They offer their help and guidance, and require respect and care in return. Offerings of fruit, food, flowers, incense, and liquor may be given to a doll, but some may prefer other things. While preparing or working with a doll, a spirit worker should use their intuition and be open to the guidance or requests received from the spirit of the doll. 

Living and working with spirit dolls is a reciprocal relationship. Though a spirit chooses to inhabit a doll, this might not be permanent. Spirits are free to leave whenever they wish, and may do so if they feel they have nothing else to offer you, or if they do not feel that they are being treated well. Some very well-taken-care-of dolls have been in families for generations, providing protection, guidance, and ancestral love through the ages. Providing a good home, respect, and offerings to a doll can ensure that you have a powerful spiritual ally.
