Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

If you need to get rid of a voodoo doll, this is the article you need to read. Down below I am going to explain how to properly and effectively get rid of a voodoo doll so you can get on with your life and forget about it.


Voodoo dolls have their origins in West African, Haitian, and Louisiana Voodoo traditions, serving as symbolic representations of individuals for various purposes.

If you’ve created a voodoo doll and want to safely dispose of it, consider burying it in a secluded area away from your home, as this can help break any energetic connections.

Alternatively, you can burn the doll while visualizing the release of any residual energy, but be cautious and follow fire safety protocols.

If you come across a voodoo doll unexpectedly, resist the urge to destroy it, and instead, return it to nature by following proper disposal methods to avoid any potential negative consequences.

After disposing of a voodoo doll, if you still sense lingering negative energy or effects, you can perform a cleansing ritual or seek guidance from an experienced practitioner to ensure your well-being.

Where does the voodoo doll come from?

First thing first, we need to learn where this tool is coming from. Is it something you created or found somewhere nearby, even inside your house?

If you found it, are you sure is a voodoo doll?

Rituals with the voodoo doll can be about White Magic, Red Magic, but also Black Magic.

In the ritual, the voodoo doll represents the person to whom the ritual is addressed. According to the type of rite, the doll can undergo different treatments: it can be pardoned or punished.

The doll’s padding may be made up of hair, nails, small parts of clothing and sometimes even blood samples of the “victim”, otherwise, you can apply a photo of the person on the doll to better identify the victim.

Pins are aimed at acting on the part of the body that interests us: it will be the heart if it is a voodoo ritual of love, the head if you want to have power over the victim’s mind.

When the voodoo ritual is to do harm, the voodoo doll will be pinned in the head or chest or otherwise tortured, such as the melting of a wax voodoo doll.

3 Powerful Voodoo Doll Spells [Love, Banish, Protection]

The colors used during the ritual are very important: black is linked to a curse, white is linked to healing, red is useful for love rituals, green is suitable for wealth and abundance.

But what should you do if you suspect that you have been hit by a voodoo ritual or if you fear that someone is about to do a voodoo ritual?

First of all, it is necessary to understand if your suspicions are well-founded. Sometimes the signs are very evident and you may also experience physical and psychic torment. A whole series of misfortunes, of unsuccessful events, a kind of headwind can occur. The person affected by a ritual could suffer from recurring nightmares too.

There are cases of symptoms so evident that family members notice them.

Often people affected by a voodoo curse undergo obvious changes to the point that family members sometimes no longer recognize them.

However, the certainty of being victims of a curse can only come from a professional spellcaster or a psychic who can exclude other causes and who can, in some cases, also understand the source of the ritual.

Once you have ascertained that you are the victim of a voodoo curse, you need to get rid of it.

The voodoo ritual is very powerful and is almost impossible to undo on your own. If you suspect that a voodoo ritual has hit you, it is important to contact an esoteric expert who can perform a powerful purification ritual capable of nullifying the spell. Solomonic Magic, for example, has the power to defend against a voodoo ritual.

If, on the other hand, there is a fear that someone intends to hit us with a voodoo rite, it is necessary to avoid the risk of being cursed with a protection ritual aimed at shielding us from evil negativity.

What if I created the voodoo doll and now I want to get rid of it?

Do not rush to throw the doll away after completing the ritual and achieving your goals. It is especially dangerous to bury, burn, and disassemble the body of a voodoo doll right away as the spirits you summoned can harm the doll’s target in the same ways you harm it.

If you want to break the voodoo connection between the puppet and the person it is associated with, you have to spray the doll with spring water, then clearly say three times:

“I undo the spell, I release you. You no longer have power over (name of the target)!”

After that, you can bury it or burn it. I would do both, to be honest! Burning it first and then burying the ashes.

Other methods of disposing of a Voodoo doll

BurialBurying the voodoo doll in the ground, usually in a secluded area or cemetery.
BurningSafely burning the voodoo doll, typically in a controlled environment like a fireplace.
SubmersionSubmerging the voodoo doll in a body of water such as a river, lake, or the ocean.
DisassemblyTaking apart the different parts of the voodoo doll and disposing of them separately.
Ritual OfferingOffering the voodoo doll as a symbolic sacrifice during a specific ritual or ceremony.
DonationDonating the voodoo doll to a practitioner or spiritual community for proper handling.

What if you found the voodoo doll?

First of all, it is necessary to cleanse yourself and your space from any negativity. Then you can proceed by removing rancor, jealousy, hatred, envy and gossip; increase spiritual strength by mentally forgiving all enemies and praying.

Use protective tools (coal placed under the bed, for example), but also steel points, such as hooks, knives, needles that can deflect the evil forces unleashed against us.

Purifying your home with herbs and incense is also an excellent way to defend ourselves from evil. There are also protective amulets that can act as real shields against evil.

They can also be prepared with the help of herbs like sage and Palo Santo so they have the essential energy for them to function properly.

Chant a protective prayer and ask your gods or deities for protection. Then it’s time for you to take action and work on the doll. Avoid touching it with bare hands and wear gloves if you can. Bless the doll with sacred water and then let it dry while chanting the words:

“May the elements undo the curse… may you do no harm anymore… my light is stronger than your darkness… I neutralize you… so be it.”

Then you can burn it or bury it. It is essential that you do so far, far away from your own house.

What if I can sense something is still off after I get rid of the voodoo doll?

If you get rid of a voodoo doll but the energy around you seems to be a bit dark, heavy or simply not right, it might be a sign that the curse linked to the doll is still active. In this case, maybe you should ask for help from a professional to cleanse the energy around you and protect you.
