Cardamom is a spice East Indians have used to good effect, as they are the creators of the Kama Sutra. Called the “grains of paradise,” you can find it in any grocery store. Organic cardamom can be recognized by the green color of the pods. To get the highly desirable grains, crush the pods in your mortar and pestle and extract the seeds. You will need:

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Cardamom from 6 pods
  • 1⁄2 cup ground coffee beans
  • 6 cups water
  • Cream or half & half
  • 1 tablespoon honey or raw sugar

To Your Health! Mulled Medieval Merriment

Start preparing this special mixture by pouring a gallon of unfiltered sweet apple cider into a big pot. Go for organic cider or juice from the farmer’s market for best taste and energetic effects, but it is even better if you can make cider from apples you have gathered or harvested. Take a bottle of your favorite low-cost red wine and heat it in a large pot gently on a low flame. Add sugar, cinnamon, and cloves to your taste, but include at least a teaspoon of cloves and a tablespoon each of sugar and cinnamon. Pour the cider into the warmed wine, and add thirteen whole cloves and six cinnamon sticks. Simmer, stirring every six minutes. Notice how your entire home fills with the spicy sweetness of merriment. After thirty minutes, it will be ready to serve.

This spell will ensure a faithful relationship. You will need:

• Magnolia buds gathered under a waxing moon
• Honey

Sweeten the magnolia buds with honey and brew in a tea, sprinkle in a salad, or stir into a soup. Chant this simple spell as you brew or stir:

Lover be faithful, lover be true.
Give thy heart to nobody but me.
This is my will.
So mote it be.
 
Before you both consume the honeyed magnolia buds, whisper this wish:

Honey magnolia, goddess’s herb,
Perform this enchantment superb,
Let (lover’s name) and I be as one.
With this, the spell is done.

Seal with a kiss between you and your lover. Then feed your lover, and his or her loyalty will never stray.

Fruitful Magic

While we often think of herbs and flowers as having special properties, it is much less commonly known that fruits also contain much magic you must try for yourself:

  • Apples: This beloved “one a day” fruit is associated with the goddess Pomona and contains the powers of healing, love, and abundance. Samhain, the high holiday of the Wheel of the Year, is also called the “Feast of Apples,” and they are used on the Halloween altar during this festival. Cutting an apple in half and sharing the other half with your beloved will generate magic so that the two of you will stay happy.
  • Apricots: This juicy treasure is associated with Venus and the power of love, and it is believed that drinking the nectar will make you more romantically appealing. The juice of the apricot is used in rituals and love potions. Truly a food of the goddess!
  • Avocados: The luscious avocado is not just delicious, it also brings forth beauty and lustfulness.
     
  • Bananas: A bunch of bananas packs a magical punch with powers of abundance and fertility for both men and women. Anyone who gets married beneath a banana tree bower will have a lucky marriage. One caveat: never cut a banana, only break the fruit apart. Otherwise, you’ll bring bad luck to your household.
  • Blackberries: Blackberries are the medicine that pops up anywhere, offering a delightful snack as well as serious healing, love, and abundance. Both the vine and the berries can be used for money-bringing spells. Thorny blackberry vines are wonderful as protective wreaths for your home, and the plant vine and the berry can be used for prosperity and money spells.
  • Blueberries: These berries are almost like a shield against the evil eye made of fruit, as they offer great protection. You can tuck them under the mat at your front threshold to ward off bad energy and evil if you feel someone is attempting to do you harm with hexes or sending bad energy your way.
  • Cherries: Beloved for their bright red color and taste, cherries are associated with romance as well as powers of divination. Useful in love spells, the Japanese believe tying a strand of hair from your head onto the blossom of a cherry tree will bring a lover to you.
  • Figs: Figs hold a place in our culture from the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Unsurprisingly, they are associated with sexuality and fecundity. If eaten ripe off the tree, this fruit will aid in conception and help men with issues of impotence. A fig tree grown outside the bedroom will bring deeply restful sleep and prophetic dreams. Outside your kitchen, a fig tree will ensure there will always be plenty of food for your family. Anywhere a fig tree grows it will bring luck and safety. A folk charm holds that gifting someone a fig grown by your own hand binds them to you. Wield your figs wisely.
  • Grapes: Planting grapevines grants you abilities for money magic as well as gardening and farming. The ancient Romans painted pictures of grapes on the garden walls to ensure good harvests and fertility for women. Eat some grapes for mental focus, and magical spell workings for money are abetted greatly by placing a bowl of grapes on the altar.
  • Lemon: This beloved member of the citrus family confers the rare power of longevity as well as faithful friendship, purification, love, and luck. The juice from lemons mixed with water can be used to consecrate magical tools and items during the full moon. Dried lemon flowers and peels can also be used in love potions and sachets. Bake a lemon pie for the object of your desire and he or she will remain faithful to you for all time. Imbibing lemon leaf tea stirs lust.
  • Oranges: Like the joyful color of this fruit, oranges are a fruit of happiness in love and marriage. Dried orange blossoms added to a hot bath make you more beautiful. A spritz of orange juice will add to the potency of any love potion. Orange sachets, pomanders, and other gifts made with this fruit offer the recipient utter felicity, thus it is an ideal gift for newlyweds.
  • Peaches: It might seem obvious, but eating peaches encourages love. They also enhance wisdom. An amulet made with the pit can ward off evil. A fallen branch from a peach tree can make an excellent magic wand, while a piece of peach wood carried in your pocket is an excellent talisman for a long life.
  • Pears: It is believed this uniquely shaped fruit brings prosperity and a long life. Somewhat similarly to peaches, the pear nourishes powers of lust and love. Shared with a partner, pears can be used to induce sexual arousal. Pear wood is also very good for magical wands.
  • Pineapple: While renowned as a symbol of hospitality, pineapples represent neighborliness, abundance, and chastity. Dried pineapple in a sachet added to bath water will bring great luck. The juice hinders lust when consumed. Dried pineapple peel is great in money spells and mixtures.
  • Plums: Plums are for protection and add sweetness to romantic love. A fallen branch from a plum tree over the door keeps out negative energy and wards off evil.
  • Pomegranates: Here we have powers of divination, making wishes come true, and engendering wealth. Eating the seeds can increase fruitfulness in childbearing; you can also carry the rind in a pocket sachet. Always make a wish before eating the fruit, for your wish will come true.
  • Raspberries: This sweet berry has tremendous powers for true love and home safety. Hang the vines at doors when a person in the house has died so that the spirit won’t enter the home again. The leaves are carried by pregnant women to help with the pains of childbirth and with pregnancy itself. Raspberries are often served at table to induce love. Raspberry leaves are also carried for luck.
  • Tomatoes: Reminder: the tomato is a fruit! An easy money spell is to place a fresh-off-the-vine tomato on the mantle every few days to bring prosperity. Eating tomatoes inspires love. They are great to plant in your garden as an aid to ward off pests of all kinds!
