Love-Drawing Powder


  • 1 tablespoon rose petals
  • 1 tablespoon orris root
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon bark
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • 1 cup talc
  • Mortar and pestle
  • 9 red candles

In the mortar and pestle, grind them down to a fine powder. As you do so, pray over the herbs so that they will help to draw love into the life of the person who will wear them on their body. When finished, the powdered mixture is then added to one cup of talc and blended well. This herb-talc mixture is then put on your altar, and a red candle is lit next to it. You will dedicate the love-drawing powder to a goddess or god of love, asking him or her to bless the powder so that it will bring love to the person who will wear it. This is done for nine days, lighting a new candle each day. When all the candles are burnt out, the powder is ready to wear.
