It is often employed to draw love, good luck, and financial success, as well as to create soothing baths and washes that are believed to purify and rejuvenate the spirit.

In Haitian Vodou, Pompeia holds particular importance as an offering to the Rada Lwa, a group of benevolent spirits who govern various aspects of life.
