How to Make and Use Hot Foot Powder

How to Make and Use Hot Foot Powder | Green Witch Living

Hot Foot powder is an old hoodoo recipe, which derived from African foot-track magic. It is used to make an unwanted person leave an area, or leave the practitioner alone.

It is best applied to a place where the target will walk, such as a path, walkway, or threshold, but can also be sprinkled inside their shoes (if you have access to them) or to the area under their desk, or the footwell of their car. Basically, any place you are certain their feet will touch.

The powder can also be mixed with a little olive oil, and put on their car door handles, mailbox, or door knobs. This doesn’t harm the target- Hot Foot Powder is not a curse- it merely induces them to leave the area. The goal of this spell is not to punish the target, just to get them to move away and leave your vicinity.  Want a roommate to move out?  A lover to leave? A neighbor to relocate? A co-worker to quit their job?  Hot Foot Powder can encourage them to do so.  

How to Make Hot Foot Powder

Items You’ll Need:


Now you will have to enchant this.  You can do this using whatever words or process is appropriate for your personal style of magic.  The traditional way is to use the 35th psalm, praying over the mixture with strong focus and intention, visualising both your target and the desired result.  

1 Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.

Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.

Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.

Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.

Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord chase them.

Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the Lord persecute them.

For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.

Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.

And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation.

10 All my bones shall say, Lord, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.

12 They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.

13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

14 I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.

15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:

16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.

17 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.

18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.

19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.

20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.

22 This thou hast seen, O Lord: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.

23 Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.

24 Judge me, O Lord my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.

25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.

27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

28 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.


Now that your powder is activated and ready for use, you must take care not to allow it to touch your own skin. Use spoons, and wear disposable gloves if possible, when handling it. Sprinkle it from its jar, or use a disposable brush to apply it in oil form. This may need to be re-applied several times to achieve the desired results – some people are more stubborn than others, but it is effective.  You can also combine it with an open road spell for the target, further encouraging them to leave by opening other opportunities in other places. Their situation may even improve by leaving.
