Red brick dust is an old hoodoo trick used to spiritually fortify one’s home, bring in prosperity, and more. The name gives it away – “red brick dust” – it is literally dust made from red bricks. This old conjure trick’s legend is said to have started in New Orleans in the French Quarter. Voodoo priestesses like Marie Laveau may have used red brick dust to protect their homes, businesses and places of magical practice. Red brick dust, also called reddening, has been used for centuries and is a modern version of the sacred red ochre used in ancient ritual.

Maybe you’re thinking, yeah this all sounds great, but where do I find an old red brick to make red brick dust? There are different places you can find red bricks. I was lucky to dig up an old red brick in my own yard, which had been buried in the earth for many years, and used that to make my red brick dust.
You can find red bricks at demolition sites or dumps. If you’d rather pay for one instead of going on a wild red brick chase, some antique stores will carry them, as well as eBay and other sites online.

My opinion is this – spirits attached to bricks are typically there for protective reasons to begin with.
The way I use red brick dust to protect my property leaves no remnants to worry about. But if you find yourself having an over-abundance of red brick dust, my answer is simple – store it until you’re ready to use it. I keep mine in a glass mason jar with a clear label. If you happened to use it in a spell bottle, jar, bag, candle spell, etc. I would include it along with the other spell remnants in your disposal. Whether that be burying the remnants, trashing the remnants, etc.
