Road Opener is used in rootwork and hoodoo to open roads and pathways to remove blockages and obstacles so that you can get and achieve what you want. Learn more about what Road Opener is and how to use Road Opener.


Ever feel stuck or blocked in some way that no matter what you do, you don’t see progress?

That no matter how many spells you do you don’t see the results you want?

Sometimes we can be blocked in ways that we don’t realise and we have to open the roads to allow what we want to come our way.

Finding a way to remove these blockages and allow what we desire to come can also be done in spell work.


What is Road Opener?


Road Opener (also called Road Opening – used interchangeably) is a conjure formula that’s created from a shrub-like bush/herb called Abre Camino [Eupatorium villosum] meaning “road opener” or “opening road”.

Abre Camino is commonly found in the Caribbean and in tropical climates such as southern Florida.

Road Opener is commonly created as an oil or dust and can also be used in ritual baths and must contain Abre Camino to have optimal desired effect to be true “Road Opener.”

Road Opener is a type of rootwork and hoodoo magick that helps to remove barriers, obstacles and blockages so that what you want can be achieved.

This can help to bring you success, good fortune, abundance, good health, money, love, promotions, etc.

If you find that you’ve been working spells and magick for weeks or even months and not seeing the results that you desire or if you feel stuck in your life, Road Opener can help with that.


How to Use Road Opener


Road Opener oil is commonly used to dress candles in candle magick/rootwork which can be used in combination with petition magick (writing names or wishes on paper.)

Anointing yourself (hands, wrists, behind ears, forehead) can be another way to use Road Opener oil during ritual or throughout the day.

Road Opener dust is another method to use road opener, commonly for dusting hands, clothing and other items (especially items that may get ruined with oil, so dusting is a safer option.)

Dusting can also be used in ritual or daily as part of a routine to consciously open roads as you go about your day.

Road opening can also be made in a wash (powder that’s added to water) to wash yourself.

Wash from toe to head (upwards) to bring positive things towards you; wash head to toe (downwards) to draw things away from you.


Road opening ritual baths can be done with some road opening and herbs, often sold online and in metaphysical shops that carry hoodoo/rootwork supplies and herbs.

Some of the bathwater is saved from the ritual bath and later thrown in the four directions of a four-way crossroad (that’s in the shape of a Plus [+] sign.)

In rootwork and hoodoo, psalms are commonly said and recited while performing spells including for road opening work.

Road Opener & Crossroads


Road opening and crossroads often go together, which road opening spells sometimes include disposing of items, water or petitions at crossroads or visiting crossroads to perform the work.

Road opening dust can be mixed with crossroads dirt for use in spell to bring what you desire towards you and remove blockages.

Mix crossroads dirt with road opening dust (2 parts crossroads dirt to 1-part road opening dust), sprinkle the dirt at your entrances, back doors, side doors, driveways and gates leading to your home and/or business.

Repeat the process every few days and after rain and/or snowfall as desired.
