Witches have used essential oils for love spells long before they were popular to buy in the shops. These oils have existed when shamans and healers performed rituals to increase fertility or support marriages. They sometimes used some essential oils for love spells, such as cinnamon, cardamom, jasmine, or rose essential oil, among many others. This form of magic was an early form of religion but also a primary form of science. Attracting love might be difficult, so a little help from witchcraft is more than welcomed in these circumstances.
Apart from these magickal oils, practitioners would also use herbs or crystals in their rituals or love spells. In particular, crystals are often paired with essential oils for love spells due to their common origin: they are both nature’s resources. For an increased benefit, both a crystal and a magical blend could be used together when casting a love spell. So let us see what kind of oils we can use in our love spell, and how.

What Are Magickal Oils?
Magickal oils are pure or mixed oils, produced for a specific purpose with visualization and energy manipulation. Oils were used for a very long time during ceremonies and rituals, and they continue to be used even today. These pure substances are extracted from magical herbs given to us by Mother Nature and are known as such since they provide a direct link to natural elements.
These essential oils can be purchased, or you can make your own blend. The most critical factor in creating your own mix is to choose what resonates with you. If you decide to purchase a magical blend, be very mindful that there are no official receipts for these traditional oils and every craftsperson or rootworker has their own formula. Not knowing exactly what’s in the bottle is part of the magic. Try to sharpen your senses and learn to differentiate the fragrances in case you decide to make your own formula, or refer to an existing procedure so you could learn about the spiritual properties of the oils, and don’t be afraid to tweak the mixture according to your needs. You can find out about these things below, and then you can decide what will best work for your craft.
Although many use magic oils for good magic, some people require oil blends for dark purposes. These essential oils are designed to create negativity or actually to harm others. It is imperative to have a clear goal in our mind, and we should also be mindful that oils can have unpleasant consequences. Choosing the right oil is a matter of personal understanding of true desires and deepest intentions.

As an example: the thyme essential oil is excellent for healing and love spells. Blend essential oils for a specific intention. Rub essential oil on your magical tools like sachets, amulets, or crystals. Anoint the candles you use with a drop of essential oil, and when it comes to a love spell, always use a red candle.
If you want to dress a candle for love magick, start from the candle’s tip and gently grease the candle until you get to the middle, then repeat starting from the bottom, until you get to the center. Remember to enchant the oil before proceeding. Visualize your purpose all the time. Before using this candle, write on the wax the name of your loved one. If you want to use oils for empowering Love sachets and talismans, use the adequate essential oils and always have your purpose in mind.

Finding Your Affinity Oil
How Do Love Spells Work?
Before you begin your ritual, you must first understand how a love spell works. Love spells are a powerful source of self-emancipation as being loved makes you healthy, and loving someone gives you courage. You can cast a spell when you are ready to give and receive love unconditionally. Also, you must have confidence that the spell will work. Never have unrealistic expectations; otherwise, the love spell won’t work.
Your spell must focus on a specific individual with whom you already have a connection. Sometimes, a love spell might have undesired consequences and might cast your partner away from you. To avoid this, try to let go of the negative thoughts when casting the spell. Always visualize your partner and make sure you are ready to give what you expect from him or her. May love bloom!
