More commonly (but less correctly) known as the Voodoo Doll, poppets are images that represent individuals for use in sympathetic magic spells. A poppet may also be fashioned represent an idea or a situation and be used as a sort of amulet to attract that which it represents.

Poppets can be made out of wax, cloth, plant material, clay, paper mache or any other material on hand. It's often preferred to make them out of something flammable so they can be destroyed when you are done with them, but this isn't necessary. Clay can be crumbled and returned to the Earth or tossed into moving water to dispose of a poppet. Poppets can be used for curses and spells to control the will of another, but most often they are used in healing and love spells.
