This is one of my favorite “love spells”. Since the women of my family worked at the request of people in our little village, love spells were definitely a common request. As you all know, trying to bend someone’s will is frowned upon (because, really…who wants someone to love them against their will), we frequently relied on folk divination and spellwork (what we do best!).
For this magick work you will need:
bay leaf (fresh if you can find one)
A pinch of mugwort
Small pink drawstring bag
Prepare your ritual space as you normally would. Consecrate your items. Place the bay leaf and mugwort into your drawstring bag and tie it three times. Place it under your pillow. As you relax into sleep, tell yourself that you will dream of your future lover and divine specifics about his or her appearance.
When you wake up in the morning, immediately write down as many details as you can remember. Place your dream journal with your list under your pillow for the next night.
Keep adding to it until your lover appears.
