Before we begin, it’s important to understand the ethical implications of giving someone a love potion without their knowledge or consent for manipulative reasons. This is something that is frowned upon in Wicca and many other belief systems.

Only you are responsible for the ethics of your magic and spellcasting. As general advice, if you are a beginner, don’t target a specific person. Instead, cast spells to bring more love into your life and let the universe do the rest.

  • Honey: If you’ve wondered why the month after a wedding is the honeymoon, that’s because of the symbolism of the honey bee. Honey relates to fertility and sexuality because of pollination. It’s a popular ingredient in sweetening spells.
  • Strawberries: They are sacred to Freyja, Venus, and used in love spells and aphrodisiacs. They attract good luck and are related to Midsummer and the Strawberry Moon. You can substitute for pomegranate or peach if strawberries aren’t in season..
  • Apple: They are the most magical fruit. Apples are used in love spells primarily, but they’re also good for healing and divinations.

The colors of ingredients may vary depending on the type of love you want to attract. If you’re looking for fiery, passionate love, choose a red candle. Pink is perfect for attracting friendship, gentle love, or self-love. If all else fails, white candles will work for any intent!

Real Potions Tips

Choose the best time to cast the spell

The Full Moon 🌕 favors communication and social interaction. This phase is very favorable to deal with romantic issues and love spells, as it can be a true aphrodisiac. When you write your own spells, you should work with correspondences. Love potions are not different. Wait for the right time by picking the best day of the week and the best planetary time.

Write down your intention

Before you begin to craft the love potion, write your intention down on a piece of paper. Your intention should be written in the present tense – something like “I attract loving individuals into my life.” It’s very important to write your intention in the present tense, announcing to the universe that it already belongs to you.

Avoid phrases like “Mike is passionately in love with me” or anything that disregards the consent of another person. This love potion is for attracting a love that’s meant for you, not to be focused on an unsuspecting target.

Cleanse your space, tools, and spell components

While many choose to cleanse by burning incense, you can do so by ringing bells or chimes, sprinkling Moon Water, or using other purifying herbs, crystals, or oils. If burning something isn’t an option for you, whatever cleansing method you prefer will be just perfect!

Cast a circle for protection

How the circle is cast will depend on your practice. Some practitioners may choose to start by calling the quarters or asking for protection from their chosen deities or angels. If you have another method of protecting yourself during your practice, then that’s totally valid as well.

When you finish making your potion, blow out the candle and clear your circle in your preferred method – your work here is done. Be sure to thank your deities and spirit guides for their participation. Some practitioners cut their circle with an athame to signify that the ritual is complete.

Stir your potion as you speak your intent

Always stir clockwise in spellwork when your intention is to draw something in, like love, relationships, money, or anything you may wish to manifest. Counter-clockwise motions are used for banishing, so try to avoid it for this potion. If you choose, you can speak or chant your intention aloud as you stir.
