Back to the roots
Sri S. S. Pandian was born and raised in a business-class family in Kamuthi, a small town in South India. During his childhood, when his father’s business faced hurdles, the teenager, aged 16, left his home with an ambition to start a business of his own. He travelled to Chennai and Mumbai looking for the right opportunity. There, he gained a little knowledge about asafoetida, also known as hing, hingu or perungayam in India.
In 1957, at the age of 27, S. S. Pandian moved once more, this time to Bangalore, Karnataka, with just Rs. 2 in his pocket and not even knowing the language. He had his sights firmly set on creating high quality compounded asafoetida in the form of powder and paste that is easy to use. Propelled by hard work and sincerity, he made the humble asafoetida, a branded and household commodity. With an unwavering customer support and a steadfast dedication to consistently produce the best asafoetida, we at SSP are determined to add some charm to your platters with our supreme spice.

The Master Book of Herbalism reported that some hold the belief that asafoetida came into being when the god’s semen came down from the heavens to meet the earth. Planted within the fertile soil, the asafoetida plant sprung forth.
According to Beyerl, there is an affinity between asafoetida and black diamond, and they should be stored together.
Asafetida contains a large amount of sulfur, giving its distinctive odor. The two are virtually interchangeable for magical purposes.
Asafetida has been used as incense for exorcisms and protection nearly as long as sulfur. It destroys manifestation of spirit if thrown into fire during magical rites (if a spell is going wrong), and it may also be burned to make someone leave you alone. The herb may be added to self-purification rituals against negative habits. The power of any ritual (with the exception of spirit conjurings) may be increased with the addition of asafetida. Asafoetida is a countermagick herb, an herb of protection, purification, and a visionary herb. . It is used as an incense for rituals of a somber, ceremonial nature. It is also used to banish negativity, evil spirits, and demons. (It is associated with the Devil Card of the Major Arcana in Tarot) Used in meditations, it helps one discover how the mundane attractions in our lives have placed us in spiritual bondage. Use it for rituals of self-purification or cleansing to break free of negative desires. Asafoetida is an excellant herb for any student who has been accepted for training leading to initiation.
Also known as Devil’s Dung in Voodoo, It is an old preventive against sickness in European; in India, it is said to stimulate the brain; in hoodoo it repels evil, keeps off the law, and harms enemies. To stop someone from bothering you, burn it on charcoal and make your command in the name of the Devil. To reverse a trick, put DEVIL’S DUNG, Vandal Root, Black Hen Feathers, Black Arts Powder, and a hair of the witch in a bottle. Urinate into the bottle while cursing the witch, cap and seal it with wax from a black candle, and bury it where the witch will walk over it. After working with DEVIL’S DUNG, wash your hands with Florida Water or Hoyt’s Cologne so folks won’t know what you’ve been up to.
Magically, both Asafoetida, as well as the closely related Galbanum are used as banishing herbs. It can exorcise those panic inducing free floating phantoms of fear. The pungent smell is said to dispel demons and is sometimes burnt as incense for protection, or worn as an amulet to avert the evil eye. It also helps focussing and concentrating the mind, helping those who are overly sensitive and ungrounded to find their inner balance. This herb would be an excellent choice for those seeking entry into the mysteries of the horned god. It is recommended for those who place Priapus upon their altars, for those who invoke the gods, particularly in their aspect as phallic, fertility deities.
Mars spells: Asafoetida (as an herb) may be used in as an ingredient or substitute for magick spells and formulas related to Mars matters (aggression, courage, defensive magick, exorcism, healing after surgery, hex-breaking, lust, physical strength, politics, protection, sexual energy, sexual potency, and strength).
Used as an amulet, it will keep away colds and fever and evil. For this purpose, a small piece may be worn at neck and a clove of garlic can be added for extra protection.
To protect your home from evil spirits, make a cloth bag containing Asafetida, Valerian, Pepper, and Garlic. Sew it shut and nail it to your front porch ceiling or just above the entry to a room. Inside the entrance, place large mirror. This will cause demons to flee in terror.
In a small red bag, put some Asafetida and a lump of Sulfur. Anoint the bag with Camphor, and wear it around your neck. This will keep away vampires, werewolves, and the evil eye (along with all your friends).
The dried resin of the stem and roots of a 12-foot-high type of fennel, Ferula asafoetida, makes a strong-smelling scent ruled by Saturn. It is used in rituals of self-purification and to break spiritual shackles, which fits well with its ruler, since Saturn teaches us our limitations and boundaries. This is a safe substitute for dangerous Saturn herbs like henbane. This resin is sometimes connected to Mars because it is somewhat warming. It’s a classic ingredient in grimoire recipes for banishing incense.
As spell asafoetida magic
Devil's Dung - Asafoetida
Asafoetida is also known as Ferula Assafoetida. In hoodoo, it is known as devil’s dung. It has been called stinking gum and the food of the Gods.
As a powder, Asafoetida has both a bitter taste and foul smell. Due to these properties, Asafoetida has truly earned the name the nickname “devil’s dung”. The herb originates from the Middle East and grows approximately six feet in length with bright yellow flowers, which clump together in clusters. The stem and roots are hollow and contain an organic liquid akin to sulfur. Although the herb may be used to spice some dishes and impart its distinct flavor, the herb itself cannot be eaten raw. Doing so is guaranteed to induce severe diarrhea and vomiting.
Asafoetida is a well-known, nasty-smelling herb which is often referred to as the “devil’s dung“. Apparently, the herb remains an old preventive against diseases in Europe, while red Indians use to use this herb it to stimulate their brain. In hoodoo practice, asafoetida fights off evil and can help you harm your enemies. This indicates if there’s a person bothering you, the herb can be used as a bath or in rituals. Some actually use the herb for negative purposes. Here I am going to share details on how this important herb is used in magic. Allegedly, if you burn the asafoetida plant on charcoal and ask spirit to help you it is believed that the wish will be granted.
Many people actually believe in the magical uses of this plant that’s closely related to Pluto and Mars. Allegedly, the plant was created from God’s semen when he came down from heaven to visit the earth, he planted his semen in the fertile ground and so the asafoetida was created. Apparently, the plant contains sulfur, a large amount of it that’s responsible for its distinctive but terrible smell. Both the sulfur and the smell are believed to be associated with magical powers and used as cures.
Back in time, the asafoetida plant was used as a cure. It was included in exorcisms and protection from evil spirits. Allegedly, the plant’s smell had the power to destroy the evil spirits or chase them away from the possessed human bodies. Also, the herb was included in self-purification ceremonies and rituals. However, during rituals, if a spell goes wrong, it was possible the evil spirits would turn into fire or even worse. In self-purification rituals, the plant would add strength to the ritual itself and increase its affection. Besides all this, the asafoetida plant represents a symbol of luck and positive energy, chasing away the evil spirits asap, demons and all that’s negative and evil.
Although it was used to harm other people, this plant is mostly used for positive purposes. Some people still use asafoetida today. An interesting fact and probably the reason why this plant is called this is that the asafoetida plant is linked with the Devil’s card in Tarot. Also, one to mention is that the plant is also used in meditations. Apparently, people believe it increases our spirituality and helps us relax, even though it has an awful smell. Honestly, I can’t imagine myself relaxing and meditating to a terrible smell in the air but it’s probably a matter of opinion. It’s believed the plant helps you discover your true self and banish negativity from your life. It also helps you attract the material things you want to have in life and connect with your soul to a much higher level.
Some people even believe that the asafoetida may chase away your negative desires, like for example suicidal thoughts or hurt yourself in some other way. The plant is an excellent way to practice “patience” and learn how to handle things you can’t change. Along with the Galbanum, these two plants make the perfect banishing ingredients. Apparently, in combination, they’re able to cure free-floating panic and fear. Aside from the nasty smell that’s used to dispel demons and other evil presence, the plant is also worn as an amulet to keep a person safe and protected from curses and evil eyes.
If you’re a student or need more concentration at work, you might find burning asafoetida useful. It’s believed to sharpen your focus and help you concentrate and be much easier and learn faster. This herb is an excellent choice for those seeking an entrance leading to heaven or other mysterious and magical places. Sometimes, it’s used to invoke gods and other mystical creatures. Some even use it to call on the fertility gods and obtain help in conceiving a child.
The asafoetida plant is also believed to be a powerful ingredient or substitute for magical herbs in many spells and magic formulas related to the planet Mars. For example, this plant is an important ingredient in spells that refer to healing after surgery, calming short temper and aggression, acquiring courage, gaining more protection from the planet Mars and from the gods, exorcism rituals, sexual energy, lust, sexual potency, physical and mental strength, and inner peace and calmness.
According to some sayings, the asafoetida will keep you safe from colds, fever, and demons if you wore it as your amulet. Aside from burning the herb, it’s recommended to attach a small piece of garlic to your incense holder for prolonged protection. When it comes to protecting your home from evil spirits, it’s believed that a mixed combination of the plant along with garlic, valerian and pepper will help you out and keep you protected. Some hang it on their front door or porch.
Some people hang it above the entrance of the room you want to keep protected and safe. If you’re scared of vampires and noticed their presence around, it’s recommended to wear a small red bad with a lump of sulfur along with some asafoetida around your neck. This way, vampires, evil eyes, and werewolves will stay out of your way. Aside from protecting yourself, you will also keep your friends protected.
Roots of a 12-foot-height fennel, dried resin of the stem and asafoetida make this strong, terrible-smelling scent that’s dominated and ruled by the planet Saturn. It’s often used in self-purification rituals and for breaking spells, and spiritual chains. I feel that this plant can teach us about boundaries and limitations, meaning this plant or combination of plants might increase a person’s self-awareness and plays a very important role in learning how to be more disciplined, patient and persistent in life.
The asafoetida is a safe substitute for henbane. The henbane is a dangerous plan often associated and ruled by Saturn too, however, it’s dangerous, while the resin is often associated with Mars because of its warming appearance. It’s a known ingredient in different recopies for eliminating scent and unpleasant smells.
As you probably figured out by now, the asafoetida is one hell of a nasty smelling plant with power usage. It’s best known for its protectiveness, black magic or just to fix some spell if it goes wrong but enough of the plant’s usage and magical powers. It’s time I tell you something about its background and origin. The famous asafoetida is native to Eastern Persian and Afghanistan. It grows between 2 and 4 thousand feet above sea level. The roots are covered in fibers, while the stem is covered in leaves.
Asafoetida’s flowers are pale yellowish-green with a small oval and brownish-red fruit. The plant has a milky juice and as we mentioned before, a horrible smell. It smells worse than onion and it has a bitter taste. The juice from the asafoetida is harvested in summer usually from the 4-year-old plants. Despite its horrible smell, the plant is widely used in both Persia and India as a condiment and medicine.
When was Asafoetida discovered?
Asafoetida was discovered somewhere around the twelfth century and is used for different medical purposes ever since. Its fruit is the one used for medical purpose around India. Apparently, it’s the part of the plant that stimulates the brain and can also relax you at the same time. It’s said that the plant cures respiratory illnesses, such as asthma, bronchitis and many others.
What are the magical uses of Asafoetida?
Now, let’s get back to the magical use of the plant. There’s something I haven’t mentioned. If you’re being disturbed by someone or want to make sure a person never crosses your path again, burn the plant and ask for help. In hoodoo, practitioners use it to banish evil and harm or chase away enemies.
The Devil’s dung original name originates from the Middle East and India. Some like to call it “asafetida”, while others like me prefer to call it “asafoetida”. You can also summon evil spirits, demons and other entities with this plant of many abilities. And as I mentioned, if you want to remain protected from illnesses or negativity, wear it as an amulet around your neck along with a piece of garlic. It might result in stinky clothing or skin but you will get used to it. It’s better to be protected and safe, right? You can regain your inner balance with the help of this plant. The asafoetida belongs to the carrot family and can be used as an exotic spice in Asian and Indian cuisine.
As you can imagine, ancient people like the Chinese for example, used this plant for many things like solving stomach pain, digestive problems or nervous indigestion. You can mix the herb into a paste and rub it into your abdomen to ease discomfort.
The asafoetida essential oil might help you with respiratory health conditions and chronic fatigue syndrome. The herb is strong and that’s why it isn’t recommended to use it continuously but only when you really need to.
Here is a spell that will protect you from people’s bad intentions or one specific person? I have listed the items below: 1 black candle (along with an image of a person if you want to banish someone specific)
- Black felt
- Black handkerchief
- Red ribbon
- Asafoetida liquid
- Rosemary leaves and High John the Conqueror root
Sew these in fabric, except the nail. Use the nail to write down the name of the person you want to banish. Or if you seek general protection, sew the nail together with the other ingredients. Once you have it all done, light the candle, by holding the sewed fabric and visualize the negative energy out of your life. Repeat that you want this person or seek general protection from evil eyes and spirits as many times as you feel you need to, and once you’re done, blow the candle straight into the fabric. You can carry the fabric wherever you go to feel protected and secure all the time.
It’s recommended to wash your hands after working with the asafoetida herb. Also, be aware of possible side effects. The fact that even the slightest piece of this herb may add significant flavor to your dish says a lot about the asafoetida. Everything that is used excessively can cause side effects. And asafoetida is not an exception. Excessive usage of this plant can mess up your menstrual cycle, and also irritate your skin. It may cause redness, scratching if you have sensitive skin. It can also lead to burning feel while urination, develop throat infection, or disturb your focus.
Aside all this, it can also cause swelling in the areas of your face and throat, most likely your lips. It’s best to seek medical help in such a case. We’ve mentioned that you can cure some of your stomach problems with this plant, however, if you cross the line, you might end up creating extra belly related disorders such as burning feeling inside your stomach and gas along with vomiting. Excessive usage of asafoetida might also affect your blood pressure in a negative way. If you’re already facing blood pressure problems, avoid using this plant to avoid possible endangerments.
I forgot to mention that asafoetida isn’t recommendable during pregnancy. It’s also unsafe to use during nursing. Possible side effects: blood disorder and the change of losing the baby. However, if you want to prevent pregnancy, asafoetida is known to have contraceptive power. It can also kill viruses such as swine flu and many others.
After all this, I hope this has helped you, one can come to the conclusion that asafoetida is one hell of a plant. And if you know how and when to use it for personal or medical purposes, you won’t have problems with side effects and endanger your health. I will say though it is recommended that you contact someone with experience in using this plant as alternative medicine or for magical purposes.
Devil’s dung has long been used as a medicine. Helping ingestion is one if it's qualities. The herbal medicine is prepared by brewing the herb in hot water to make tea. This drink will have a very pungent smell but is very effective against stomach ailments, cold symptoms, anxiety disorders, chronic fatigue, yeast infection, and painful flatulence. Research even suggests that regular intake of the devil’s dung during the early stages of pregnancy will lower the chance of having a miscarriage. In India, it is also said to be able to stimulate and possibly improve a person’s mental faculties.
Asafoetida is also known for its ability to repel evil forces as well as lawful authorities. It may even be used with certain incantations to harm one’s enemies.
