Voodoo Authentica, New Orleans

Located on peaceful Dumaine Street in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, Voodoo Authentica has been owned and run by Voodoo practitioners since 1996. It's more than just a shop; it's also a temple, a cultural hub, and a space for learning about Voodoo. Here, experienced Voodoo experts perform rituals, offer spell readings, conduct spiritual work, and provide consultations.

Inside the shop, you'll discover a wide range of locally crafted Voodoo items, including handmade Voodoo dolls, gris gris bags, potent oils, candles, incense, and an assortment of unique traditional items associated with New Orleans, Haitian, or African Voodoo traditions. You can even come across unique jewelry pieces like necklaces made from alligator claws and teeth. Every individual working here practices Voodoo, and almost everything in the cozy shop is crafted by local artisans, many of whom work right there on-site.

Furthermore, this one-of-a-kind cultural center hosts Voodoofest, a free annual Halloween festival that honors the influence of the Voodoo religion on New Orleans customs through educational presentations, book signings, and an ancestral healing ritual.

Tip:
If you have any questions, seek spiritual guidance, or are genuinely interested in learning about Voodoo practices, don't hesitate to ask any of the in-house specialists. They are more than willing to assist you. And if you're looking for recommendations on great places to eat in the area, feel free to drop in and ask for advice!
