Who Is My True Love? Pendulum Power

If you have any doubts about a friend’s intentions or actions, try using a pendulum to help you determine the truth. I take my pendulum, a lovely striated quartz, everywhere I go to answer those tough yes-no questions that crop up daily.

Sweet Heart Herbal Amulets

Sweetheart Tea
Here is a quick recipe to create exactly the right mood for a dreamy evening:
 
Stir together in a clockwise motion:
  • 1 ounce dried and pulverized rosehips 
  • 1⁄2 ounce peppermint
  • 1⁄2 ounce dried lemon balm
You can store this in a tin or colored jar for up to a year for those special evenings. When you are ready to brew the tea, pour boiling water over the herbs, two teaspoons for every cup of water. Say the following spell aloud during the five minute steeping and picture your heart’s desire:
 
Herbal brew of love’s emotion
With my wish I fortify
When two people share this potion
This love shall intensify
As in the Olde Garden of Love.

Sweeten to taste with honey and share this luscious libation with the one you love.

Amorous Herbs Love Charm
Many a witchy woman has enjoyed the fruits of long-lasting love by reciting the following charm while mixing rye and pimento into a dish shared with her object of affection. While stirring in these amorous herbs, declaim:
 
Rye of earth, pimento of fire
Eaten surely lights desire.
Serve to he whose love I crave,
And his heart I will enslave!
