"Have you noticed how a horseshoe magnet draws iron filings to itself? Well, that is just how ATTRACTION works! Whether you want more money, more love, or more friends -- and especially if you seek ALL at once -- ATTRACTION is said to draw what you desire. Its lovely scent is as appealing as its name, making ATTRACTION the choice of many."
-- The Lucky Mojo Curio Co. catalogue
Attraction is an old hoodoo formula for oil, incense, sachet powders, and washing products that are designed to draw whatever you wish like a magnet. They can be used to attract money, love, luck, favours, or friends. The symbolism on the labels is clear -- a horseshoe magnet is pulling in dollar bills and coins for use in money magic, and hearts for use in love spells.
The labels shown here are from a foil package of Lucky Mojo brand Attraction sachet powders, Attraction incense powders, Attraction bath crystals, and a 1/2 oz. bottle of Attraction oil for anointing oneself or dressing candles or a mojo bag. Like the rest of the Lucky Mojo line, these products contain genuine reputed love-drawing herbs and herbal essential oils, not synthetic fragrances. The ingredients in Attraction include Cinnamon, Pyrite, and Calamus Root, plus other herbs and essences. Lucky Mojo labels are adapted from vintage packaging and in many cases the images are as traditional as the ingredients themselves.
Using Attraction spiritual supplies can be as simple as wearing the perfumed oil as a personal scent to attract new friends or to make an impression while performing on stage -- to laying down sachet powders in one's work-place to draw money. When starting Attraction work, some people like to get things going with a full-blown spell and then continue to use the oil to dress themselves, their money, or a physical location to which they are trying to draw trade.
Here is a magic spell you can work to attract things or people you desire. It is what one might call an all-purpose magic spell because it can be used for love magic, money magic, or luck magic, or for any special desire. You will need:
1 white 7-Knob Candle 1 large Lodestone 1 packet Magnetic Sand 1 packet Attraction Incense Powders 1 packet Attraction Sachet Powder 1 packet Attraction Bath Crystals 1 bottle Attraction Dressing Oil
This spell takes 7 days to perform. Start before the Full Moon, so the Moon grows bigger while you work. In addition to the items here, you will need an incense burner, a plate or tray to hold the Lodestone, and a piece of paper on which you have written your full name 9 times in red ink.
To use an Attraction spell to draw money, you will also need 7 brand-new dollar bills and 7 brand-new dimes. Many folks work this as a money spellin their place of business, to attract customers and increase trade.
To use an Attraction spell to draw love, you will also need 7 pieces of paper on which you have written the desired person's full name 9 times in red ink. If you can get something personal -- a photo, hair, fingernail clippings, a handwritten letter, or concerns of that nature -- the spell will be more powerful. The more intimate the items, the better. Body fluids are considered the most potent personal concerns when working love magic
To use an Attraction spell to draw material goods, such as a new car, clothes, or appliances for the home, cut out 7 pictures from magazine advertisements and write out the full name of each item 9 times on the picture with red ink. Dress each coin and the 4 corners of each paper or dollar with Attraction Oil.
Before dawn on the first day, dissolve half the packet of Attraction Bath Crystals into a tub of hot water. Pour the water over your head 9 times as you say, "Spirit of Attraction, bring me what i desire," and name what you want. Air-dry yourself and collect a basin of the used bath water, which now has your essence in it. Dress in fresh, clean clothes, carry a basin of bath-water to a crossroads and throw the water over your left shoulder toward the sunrise in the East. Walk back home and don't look back. You are now ready to start the work.
DOING THE JOB:
Sprinkle a pinch of Attraction Sachet Powder in the four corners of the room. Each time say, "Spirit of Attraction, bring me what i desire," and name what you want.
Carve the full name of the person or the items you desire on each knob of the 7-Knob Candle, or carve 7 different desires, one for each knob. Dress the candle with Attraction Oil. Make one-seventh of the Attraction Incense Powders into cones (use a twist of paper, pack the incense in with your finger, and turn it out of the cone) or place it loose on a brazier. Set out the Lodestone on the tray and dress it with Oil and then Sachet Powder. Put your name-paper, your concerns, and/or the desired person's concerns under and around the Lodestone. Light the incense, then the candle.
If working for money, place one dollar bill and one coin under the Lodestone; if working for love, place one name-paper, if working for material goods, place one picture-paper. Say aloud, "I wish to attract [name of person or item]." Sprinkle Magnetic Sand on the Lodestone, saying, "As i feed you, so will you feed me." Let the candle burn through one knob and pinch it out (don't blow it out).
Each night, light more incense, give another paper or money to the Lodestone, sprinkle it with Magnetic Sand , say the words, and burn the candle one knob's worth. On the 7th day, the Lodestone will be covered in magnetic sand. Let the candle burn until it goes out. The Lodestone is now "trained" to draw what you wish. Put it under your bed for love or under the counter near your cash register for business. If you are in business, give some of the trained money to customers every day and replace it with new money so the Lodestone is always attracting more money for you.
RITUAL FLOOR WASHING:
After 3 days have passed -- or when it is convenient for you -- dissolve the remaining half of the bath crystals in hot water and use the liquid to wash down the floor, walls, or furniture of your home or place of business. Dispose of the used water as a crossroads.
It is important to properly dispose of ritual remains. Because this is a magic spell to draw things to you, you may want to keep the remains around your home. Wrap up any left-over candle wax, incense ashes, and used sachet powders in a piece of white cloth. Secure it with white thread and tie it. Bury it in your yard, near your front door.
