It's summertime and to quote a very famous song: "Summer lovin' happened so fast." Although, for some of us, this might not happen quite as fast.
And, let's be honest, the two most popular questions we hear as gatekeepers and healers are about love and money. If you're saying, "No, no. That's not what I ask about," then you're living an awesome and awesome life to which I say, "Congrats!" But, for those of us who want to add more love in our lives, let's get working!
For those of you who love companionship and incidentally have cats, this is going to be easily available for you. If you don't have cats, we carry catnip at all our House of Intuition locations.
Catnip is a fantastic herb for love magic and attraction work.
This herb is traditionally used in magic to attract lovers, much like how catnip attracts cats throws them into a frenzy.
Though many of the traditions state that this herb is mostly used to attract men or masculine energies, we can still use this for people identifying as any gender.
For a quick candle dressing herbal mix to draw in love, use the following dried herbs:
Or any love herb you feel drawn to use:
Throw a pinch of each herb into a mortar and grind until combined. Alternatively, you can use a coffee grinder, but using a mortar and pestle gives you more time to combine it and allows you more time to set your intention. But again, the most important thing is that while you combine, you affirm that this blend will draw in a new love into your life.
Set these herbs until the light of the full moon to charge for optimal effect.
Once the herbs have been charged, for the next new moon, add a pinch (less is more when it comes to working with candle dressing) into a candle (I’d recommend red, pink or white or you can purchase our Love Come To Me candle here). Set your intention again with the candle and once it’s received your loving energy, light the candle.
A note about the herbal blend above: you can use a combination of the herbs solely or you can switch some out to use the essential oil, whichever you feel drawn to. Magic is about intuition, not always about strict guidelines!
If this blend is too complicated or we’re working on a budget, you can always light a piece of charcoal and sprinkle on some crushed Catnip and dried Roses. As the herbs smoke and burn, focus your intention on drawing in a new and fulfilling love. During this time, you can even write out your intentions and the specific qualities you want in a new partner on a petition paper and dress it with some of our HOI Rose Water!
Hopefully this blend will help you on your way to finding a new lover for you or finding a new found love for yourself!
