Product Reviews - Indio Sachet Powder - Money Drawing
Type: Sachet Powder
Name: Money Drawing
Package: 1 oz Glass Bottle
Color: Light Lime Green
Label: A magnet is attracting a stack of money. Dollar signs are to the left and a strange red curtain is in the background. The name at the top is in Spanish and in English below. Ingredients appear on the side. The label does not match the label shown at site.
First of all, I didn't order this. I ordered Seven Sisters of New Orleans Money Drawing sachet powder. I was sent this instead. So apparently Indio/Wisdom is now making substitutions without telling customers. Indio/Wisdom uses real talk in their sachet powders, which is a plus. Many other places are using cornstarch powder or rice powder that will clump together and not produce a good product. Talc is preferred because it hardly ever clumps together. The powder is scented with a pleasant perfume fragrance. I love the glass bottles because one can save them and reuse them. The only problem with this product is that there is no room to add pinches of herbs or roots. One has to remove a good deal of the powder first and then add pinches of herbs and roots. The the excess powder must be poured in slowly and stirred with a toothpick. Unfortunately, there's no way to get around wasting some of the powder. I guess this is better than using the powders that come in envelopes. Those would be easier to mix herbs and roots into but the problem with those is that the powder leaks everywhere. You have to keep the envelopes in sandwich bags to prevent spills.
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this product a 9. I probably would not buy it again only because I prefer the 7 Sisters of New Orleans sachet powders. They are the same product, mind you. It's just that I prefer the 7 Sisters of New Orleans labels over Indio labels. I like retro stuff.
