There is no one "best" combination for a mjo hand. It all depends on
what you are making it for, what your purpose is. In your case, looking
for a good job, you may want to include some gravel root (always used
for steady work spells) and some cinnamon (to draw money), and some
lodestones and magnetic sand (to attract what you want). Three
ingredients is the basic minimum, and most hands are made with an odd
number of ingredients. Pyrite is good for jobs, and so is five-finger
grass. That gives you five ingredients. Lots of people like Dragon;s
Blood resin for luck, and of course, Irish Moss is highly thought of
when it comes to attracting money, So there are seven ingredients. 

You can read a table of common herbs and formulas and their uses at this
page on my web site:

Also, where you wear the conjure hand is not all that important. I like
them in contact with me, but many women carry them in a purse, not on
their person. You just want to have it on or about you. 

I have written an article on mojo bags and placed it online at'

That article gives a lot of different combinations for making mojo hands
for various purposes. You can find many more such combinations at my
site by using the online search engine at my site and typing in the word
"mojo" -- or (sorry if this sounds too crass), you can find about 100
more mojo hand combinations for a variety of conditions in my new book
"Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic."
