Making and using a love potion is one of the most amazingly powerful things you can do with your Wiccan powers. Love is so important in our lives and using magick to attract new love and to increase the love we already have and to just send love vibes out into the universe is one of the most positive uses of a witch’s energy.
Potions come in all kinds and have a load of uses, I am going to share some of the best potions have made here with limited ingredients so they are simple to make and use. These are adapted from very old customs and traditions but can be made with ingredients easy to find.
Love potions are a small part of love magick but should still be taken seriously.
Are Love Potions Safe?
The answer to this is yes because you will make and use them safely. There are a couple of things to be aware of in making love potions safe.
Firstly you need to be careful with the ingredients that you use especially if you are using berries and herbs collected from nature. You need to be careful with any potion that you intend to drink or for anyone else to drink, and for any you make as a lotion applied to the skin or used in the bath. Check all your ingredients carefully to make sure they are safe.
Another aspect of safety is really about how you direct the love potion and how powerful it is, you do not want to turn a distant admirer into a stalker or to have someone completely fall in love with you only for you to realize that they are not the person for you.
Remember the Wiccan Rede, the code we live by ‘An it harm none, do what ye will‘
Love potions should do no harm so when your spell works on someone and you decide it was a mistake be ready to reverse it with a quick reversal spell so no harm is done.
How To Make a Love Potion
There are a number of love potions you can make, it depends on the strength you need and the purpose of the potion. It also depends on how close you are to the person for whom you are making the portion.
It may be that the potion is intended to bring love into your life but you are sending the message out into the ether not directed at someone you already know. You can make a potion in many forms:
- Alcoholic drinks
- Bath potions
- Part of an amulet
- Part of a casting spell
These all have their place in the witch’s armory for creating more ‘amore’ as the Italians call love. choose your weapon from some of those I am sharing with you and wait for the effects to pour over you as love enters your life or grows before your eyes.
I am going to share some of these potions with you and describe how you use each of these potions to manifest what you want from love.
If creating a love potion seems complicated or you’re missing ingredients, consider using a honey jar spell instead.
