What are love potions?


what are love potions
A love potion is an herbal elixir, essence, or tea which can be compounded to add to the food and drink of one's intended target. An essential oil based love potion can also be used externally on your own body.

This means that, for all practical purposes, a love potion is a solid, physically tangible love spell. Potions are designed to be perceived by our four of our five senses: sight, taste, touch, and smell. Only our sense of hearing is left untouched by a love potion.

Of course, although it is not a physical sense, your potion can also act on the psi senses of your target if you let him or her know what you have brewed up. Suggestion can be a powerful thing.

Apple of My Eye love potion

If you have your eye on a special someone and are looking for a simple way to catch their eye, invite them over for a drink infused with this special love potion.

A drop or two is all it takes. This potion works best if your intentions are pure.



Add basil leaves, dried rose petals, powdered apple peel and sea salt to the glass of water.

Hold the glass between the palms of both hands and focus on the one you love. Visualize waves of your love energy flowing into the glass, charging it with your passion.

Store the potion in a tightly sealed bottle until ready to use. Including a few drops when preparing food or beverages for your intended.

Cherry Rose love potion

Cherry and rose are a natural combination for a love potion. A sweet red potion can inspire thoughts of love in your intended, especially when you are the one mixing it up. At that point it's easy to infuse the potion with all your intentions toward that special someone.

Serve with two straws to bring the two of you closer together.


  • 2 cups cherry juice
  • 5 red rose petals
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 2 pinches of sugar
  • Instructions

    Stir the cinnamon and sugar into the cherry juice. Top with the rose petals, then serve to your intended.

    Hot Cocoa love potion

    Want to heat up a frosty evening? Try this special blend love potion to spread some warmth to both parties. Cinnamon is particularly well known for its warming properties.

    This love potion is best for cold winter nights, and would be especially potent for a chilly evening date on Valentine’s Day.



    Top a cup of hot cocoa with cinnamon and sugar to brew up a sweet relationship.

    Since nothing would damp down a prospective romance faster than a cup of cold cocoa, serve to your intended while hot.

    Intoxication love potion

    A particularly potent love potion using elecampane, one of the ingredients in Absinthe. As you may know, a glass of Absinthe helps you to see things as you wish they were.

    If you are aiming for the “lust” side of love, this potion would be an excellent choice for your purposes.



    Mix all ingredients together, stirring in a clockwise motion.

    Store the mixture in a small, tightly closed bag and carry it under your left arm during the day. That night, place the bag in a cup of boiling water and let it steep until the water cools. After the water cools, place the mixture in a small vial and seal tightly.

    Place 3 drops of potion in any beverage and serve it to your intended.

    Rosy Friday love potion

    A little planning ahead can bring you extra luck in love!



    Brew on a Friday before Valentine’s Day. Boil the water, then steep all the dry ingredients. Add the vanilla extract once steeped.

    Store until needed.

    Share Your Love love potion

    Share and share alike, as the saying goes.

    Sharing is the key to this love potion’s effectiveness. Are you willing to give your all in this relationship? Are you looking for someone of like mind with whom to share your life?

    Share your love with the one you love by using this potion.



    Split any beverage into two glasses – one for you and one for your lover. As he or she drinks from the glass, say to yourself:

    All mine for you.

    As you drink from your glass, say to yourself:

    All yours for me.

    Tropical Sunset love potion

    Nothing says “romance” like the image of the beach at sunset. Warm sand, a vivid sunset, and tropical flowers are the perfect setting for a romantic evening.

    Evoke the warmth of the tropics with this essential oil based potion.



    Dab this special love potion on your pulse points to intoxicate your would-be sweetheart.

    Love Potion #9

    love potion no. 9
    Utilize the Power of Nine to bring love to your life. Nine is a double lucky number: Three times Three.

    This spell works best if you cast it on the 9th hour of the 9th day of the 9th month of the year -- September 9th at 9 am.



    Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, stirring until well-blended. Cool, then strain out any large chunks of strawberry mash. Bless your potion in the name of your favourite Goddess of Love.

    Pour into a clean container and store until needed.

    La Belle Dame Sans Merci love potion

    La Belle Dame Sans Merci love potion
    For those content to have a one-night stand rather than a long-term relationship, this potion can catch and captivate a partner for you to love and leave with no strings attached.

    Note: This is risky behavior, especially with all the sexually transmitted diseases going around. I really don't recommend choosing this route of your own free will.



    Fill a small phial with the jojoba oil, then add the essential oils. To use, dab on your pulse points when your target is in sight.

    Store the potion in its phial until needed.
