BEWITCHING LOVE POTIONS &
ENCHANTING BREWS

* THE LOVE POTION *
EVELYN DE MORGAN
1855-1919

Evelyn's beautiful Victorian painting illustrates a beguiling witch with her enchanting black cat familiar.

Try some home brewed Bewitching Potions & Enchanting Brews to conjure up a little romance this coming Valentine's Day.

A little Witchcraft or Sorcery can put a spark of magick into your relationship. This ancient art utilizes the powers of nature & the mind to bring about a desired effect. Specific combinations of natural elements draw specific energies. One can tap these energies by stimulating the senses to induce altered states of consciousness that intensify moods & feelings.

* BEWITCHING LOVE POTION #9 *
In a small pot, simmer:
HALF CUP OF JOJOBA OIL & moving your spoon clockwise, stir in 9 drops each of the following essential oils:
AMBERGRIS
CINNAMON
FRANKINCENSE
JASMINE
LAVENDER
MUSK
ORANGE BLOSSOM
ROSE
VIOLET
YLANG YLANG
Let cool & store in a dark glass container. Dab yourself with it as you would your favorite perfume before a night out, or a night in to drive your loved one wild with desire.


* ENCHANTING BREW *
Pour one quart of RED WINE or GRAPE JUICE in a non-reactive pot & warm to a near simmer.
In a doubled piece of cheesecloth place one teaspoon each of:
ROSE PETALS
GINGER
CLOVES
ONE wedge of ORANGE PEEL
ONE piece of FRESH GINGER
TWO CINNAMON STICKS
Gather & tie the bundle tightly with butcher's string & place it in the liquid to steep. Taste the brew every few minutes until the flavors have been infused, but remove the bundle before they become overpowering. Chill if desired. Share a glass with your loved one & toast to an enchanting evening.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
While loving someone deeply gives you courage.

Lyndy,
What a great blog post for the upcoming holiday! I will have to try making that Enchanting Brew, sounds delicious! "The Love Potion" is a beautiful painting. I am a huge fan of the Pre-Raphaelites. The Delaware Art Museum, about an hour away from me, has one of the biggest collections of PR paintings in the world. I love going there!
Enjoy today, Jennifer

Mmmmmm, that brew sounds enchanting indeed - I'll have to try it with some red wine!

And thanks for sharing the Evelyn de Morgan painting - I absolutely LOVE pre-Raphaelite art, and her paintings are among my favorites. :)

Hi Jennifer, I love the Pre-Raphaelites which was a group of English painters, poets & critics, founded in 1848.

I feel just like the leader of this group, because this is exactly what I'm trying to do with the 'Craft Halloween' artists VS. the 'Refined Halloween' artists.

Magickal Love & Blessings, Lyndy

Hi Carolee, the Pre-Raphaelites have been considered the first Avant-garde movement in art.

Amazing this is exactly what I'm trying to do with the 'Craft Halloween' artists VS the 'Refined Halloween' artists.

Magickal Love & Blessings, Lyndy
