**THESE ARE THE LIMITED RUN SILVER EMBOSSED CARDS**
ALL CARDS COME LAMINATED.
Ed Calderon (aka @edsmanifesto) is a Tijuana-born Santa Muerte initiate who served over a decade in a Mexican paramilitary unit.
As Ed's in-house occult expert, he asked me to recreate and empower these prayer cards with the unique and symbol-rich Santa Muerte image he provided backed with Ed's translation of the prayer (Oracion) that the believers and initiates in his operations group recited daily. These are reproductions of some of the cards that they carried for protection and devotion.
Ed recounts that they were worn under the insole of the left shoe or on the left side of the flack jacket.
These are not your average botanica prayer cards that maybe got some siete machos splashed on them. These cards are fixed with a special Santa Muerte cologne I prepared for this purpose.
When you open the bag, you'll know the difference immediately.
When we use the term cologne, we are simply speaking of an alcohol extraction that is to be used topically. It doesn't smell like cologne - it smells a lot more like guns and bones with a subtle whiff of sweet darkness.
The ingredients were:
1. Dead roses from her altar
2. Black copal
4. Murderer's grave dirt
5. 7 silver Mercury dimes
6. Vulture bone
7. Human finger bones
8. Black powder/fula
9. Iron filingS
The cologne was made by praying over the ingredients at her altar, blessing them with a cigar that I shared with her, grinding them to powder, then refluxing in ethanol for 6 hours until the volume was reduced by half. The reaction vessel was submerged in a cold bath to stop the cologne from boiling, then filtered through an ultra fine steel mesh into a spray bottle.

Of the work coming from you and your team. Aside from specific items for protection, I also feel for what resonates and follow through. This was one of these instances. Curiously and respectfully I continue.
The sight and smell of which bring a focus to the senses.
Feels like Grandma made it with love!
I Love it.
Very high quality and durable thanks to the laminate. I have no doubt this will be able to withstand the rigors of certain stressful environments in which her protection would be most warranted.
great quality on the prayer card, I'll be carrying it everyday!
