A talisman is an object that attracts energy that you desire and stimulates positive forces. An amulet rejects energy that you do not want and protects against accident. This is an important difference in energy! The common noun is Mojo.
You work with an animated object, so it is important to keep feeding the energy of the object. For all of the following basic rules apply: Place a glass of liqueur or water next to your pouch, bottle or amulet. You raise your energetic object in this way and keep it free from unwanted energy .
Sweet foods like cookies or chocolate are also a possibility. The important thing here is to follow your feelings. A witch bottle to repel or curse will rather be fed with salt, the former, or pepper, the latter. Even objects like flowers and photos of the person you are trying to influence are common.
Go and read the manuals about the usage of mojo's.
