Since there's quite a bit of information already, I'll just add a few things.
Red wine can be used in place of blood. If your a female, of child-bearing age, menstrual blood is quite powerful. Straight from the flow, not the dried blood from pads and tampons.
Finding a internet page, awhile back, I made a set of prayer beads that I use while working with Hel .
I hope I helped.
