The Magickal Uses of High John The Conqueror Root

High John The Conqueror Root

High John the Conqueror Root is the root of Ipomoea Jalapa, a plant in the Morning Glory family. It is used in Hoodoo spells and as an amulet that attracts luck. Its name means power and prosperity to many. The magickal abilities of this root were discovered since ancient times.

Like many other Ipomoeas, some of which are psychedelic, this root is rich in alkaloids and is not ingested in magickal practice. This is because it is an extremely powerful laxative. It is used as an ingredient in making a mojo bag that attracts money, brings luck in games and enhances a person’s sexual strength. It is also used by those who intend to win court cases.

Who was John the Conqueror and why was this root named after him?

John was the son of an African King who was caught and subjected to slavery. As a black slave, he rebelled firmly against his masters. He was a very smart and intelligent man who could manipulate his master just to get things done his own way. When he succeeded in gaining freedom from his master, he became a source of inspiration to other slaves who wanted to rebel against their master but couldn’t do it openly.

He was a man who gave – only to take away. He bet – and never lost a game.  Sometimes he acted dumb but can never be intimidated. The reputation of High John was so great as recorded by Harry Middleton Hyatt Folklorist in the 1930s.

Although, there is a dispute amongst historians as to whether John was an actual person or a fictional character that was used to inspire slaves. Whatever might be the case, High John the Conqueror remains a powerful figure akin to the Coyote of Native America, or Loki of the Norsemen. His spirit is synonymous to Conjure and Hoodoo magick.
