A woman constable attached to the Half-Way-Tree Police Station had to seek medical attention last week after she came in contact with a strange powdery substance sprinkled on the court compound. […] Security personnel at the courthouse told Xtra News that on a daily basis they remove strange items from persons seeking to enter the building.
Recently a bottle with a strange oil marked ‘Oil of Clearance’ was taken from a woman seeking to enter the building. Another bottle marked ‘Oil of Molest Me Not’ was also found in nearby bushes in the courtyard.
Security personnel claim that persons, who have relatives charged before the court, carry the strange potions with the hope that the ‘obeah oil’ will get their relatives released.

That got me thinking about all the kinds of obeah oil I would like to have: Oil of Amazon Wishlist, Salve of Savings Growth, Unguent of Unwanted Hair, Pomade of Perfect Relations …
