Middle Earth Magic: Inspired Ideas and Seasonal Spells for Your Enchanted Life

I grew up on a farm in West Virginia and learned much about herbs, trees, animals, gardening, foraging  and so much about nature. I incorporate this wisdom I learned from elders in my family into my spellwork. When I finally left the farm, I majored in Medieval Studies, my attempt to emulate my idol, J.R.R. Tolkien. All these influences led me to my own blended brew which I call "middle earth magic," containing a mix of the modern and the time-tested "old ways."

Lover’s Feasts: Aphrodisiacal Foods

Food can be foreplay! Feeding each other can be a wonderful prelude to a night of lovemaking, and of course, a little strategically placed whipped cream and chocolate is a delicious lover’s treat. The following is a list of amazing aphrodisiacs that will ensure pleasure and arousal and help you explore the erotic possibilities of your witch’s pantry fully:

  • Almonds or erotically shaped marzipan

  • Arugula is also called “rocket seed”—need I say more?

  • Avocado was referred to by the ancient Aztecs as the“testicle tree”

  • Both bananas and the flowers of the banana tree have phallic shapes

  • Chocolate is quite rightly called “the food of the gods.” 

  • Coffee is stimulating in more than one way

  • Figs are another symbol of ultimate femininity—just eating one is a turn-on

  • Garlic is the heat to light the flame of desire

  • Honey The term honeymoon comes from a bee-sweetened cordial, a jug of which was given to newlyweds, the idea being that it would last one full moon (the length of a lunation being four weeks, nearly a month)

  • Nutmeg is a traditional aphrodisiac among women in China; eat enough of it and you will hallucinate

  • Oysters were prized by Romans for their effect as well as their resemblance to a woman’s genitals

  • Strawberries—well, why do you think erotic literature so often compares them to nipples?

  • Vanilla is captivating for both the scent and flavor

  • Wine drunk from each other’s mouths is unspeakably erotic
