"Our most popular herb-based love attracting formula! Come To Me is believed by many to have unique power to cause a member of the opposite sex to draw closer, closer, closer -- until you are in each other's arms. Used to dress Lodestones or worn as a personal scent, Come To Me sends a clear message!"
Lucky Mojo Curio Co. catalogue
Come To Me is an old hoodoo formula for oil, incense, sachet powders, and washing products that are designed to use in love spells that draw a lover of the opposite sex closer. These spiritual supplies are usually used when the lover is someone the practitioner knows, but they are may also be employed to attract a new or unknown lover, to draw him or her to one "out of the universe," as it were.
The label shown here is from a Lucky Mojo brand Come To Me Vigil Candle, burned by those who wish to draw a lover to themselves. The same herbs and fragrances used to dress this candle for customers and clients are the basis of Lucky Mojo Come To Me dressing oil . used for anointing oneself, fixing the bedroom, preparing red offertory candles or feeding a mojo bag. These herbs and scents also can be found in Come To Me incense powders, sachet powders, and bath crystals.
Like the rest of the Lucky Mojo line, these products contain genuine reputed magical love drawing herbs and herbal essential oils, not synthetic fragrances. The ingredients in Come To Me include Patchouli and Saffron, 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.
Come to Me is one of a family of related formulas that also includes Love Me, Bewitching, Kiss Me Now!, Cleo May, Marriage, Follow Me Boy, Dixie Love, Look Me Over,and Fire of Love products. Each one of these old-time recipes is slightly different -- some placing emphasis on passion, others on physical attractivenes, wedded bliss, or control of a lover, or all of these combined with good fortune and luck at love and romnce -- but they have in common the underlying aim of enhancing one's internally generated forces, enabling action upon the external world.
The above formulas may, of course, be mixed and matched in any way that suits the practitioner, or may be teamed up with formulas from another line of goods, such as a financial or money luck formula like Money Drawing, or a female domination spell formula like Stay With Me.
How you choose to use Come To Me spiritual supplies is, of course,
up to you, but one very traditional
method is to employ them in conjunction with selections from
the Song of Solomon,
while praying for all that is
Song of Solomon
I have compared thee, O my love, to a company of horses in Pharaoh's chariots. Thy cheeks are comely with rows of jewels, thy neck with chains of gold. We will make thee borders of gold with studs of silver. While the king sitteth at his table, my spikenard sendeth forth the smell thereof. A bundle of myrrh is my wellbeloved unto me; he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts. My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of En-gedi. Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves' eyes. Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant: also our bed is green. The beams of our house are cedar, and our rafters of fir.
Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves' eyes within thy locks: thy hair is as a flock of goats, that appear from Mount Gilead. Thy teeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn, which came up from the washing; whereof every one bear twins, and none is barren among them. Thy lips are like a thread of scarlet, and thy speech is comely: thy temples are like a piece of a pomegranate within thy locks. Thy neck is like the tower of David builded for an armoury, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mighty men. Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies. Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense. Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.
There are thousands of specific spells that employ a variety of hoodoo spiritual supplies. Here are some of the ways you can use Come To Me brand spiritual supplies to attract the luck you desire.
Preparation: This is a 9-day love spell that uses three candles -- white, pink, and red -- to successively attract someone, then induce romantic feelings in them, and finally engender passion. Here's what you will need:
1 White "Bride and Groom" candle or other white figural couple candle
1 Pink "Bride and Groom" candle or other pink figural couple candle
1 Red "Bride and Groom" candle or other red figural couple candle
a nail or needle to carve the candles
a saucer for the candles
a basin for water
three pieces of paper
a black ink pen
a red ink pen.
1 bottle Come To Me Oil.
Doing the Job: Before dawn on the first day, bathe in pure water to which you have added three drops of Come To Me Oil. Pour the water over your head 9 times as you say, "Spirit of Love, i do this work for love and love only, that i may be loved by [name] as i myself love [him or her]. Amen." Rub upward only as you bathe and dry yourself in the air only. Collect a basin of the used bath water, which now has your essence in it. Dress in fresh clothes, carry the basin of bath-water to a crossroads and throw the water over your left shoulder toward the sunrise. Walk back home and don't look back. You are now ready to start the work.
On the 1st day, start at Sun-up. Take the first paper and write on it your full name and the one you love's full name in pencil, all in one stroke, without lifting the pencil from the paper, so that the two names form a circle and the end is joined to the beginning. Carve the full name of the person you love on the gender-appropriate side of the White Candle. Carve your full name on the other side and dress the candle with Come To Me Oil. Next, name the two sides of the candle, saying, "Spirit of Love, i name this woman [or man] [your full name] and this man [or woman] [name of lover]. As is done to this candle, may it be done to our thoughts." Place the name-paper under the candle, then dress the candle with your saliva, saying, "[Name of lover], love me as i love you. Desire me as i desire you. Come to me as i come to you. By my loving speech and tongue, be mine as i am yours." Light both wicks of the candle as you say this prayer: "Spirit of Pure Love, i burn this candle in pure love's name that i may be loved by [name] as i myself love [him or her] and that [name] will burn for my love as i burn for [his or hers]. Let our thoughts be one. Amen." Let the candle burn about 1/3 of the way, then pinch it out.
On the 2nd day, again burn the white candle at Dawn, and say the "Pure Love" candle-lighting prayer. Burn it until it is about 2/3 gone.
On the 3rd day, again light it at Dawn, say the "Pure Love" candle lighting prayer, and let it burn until it goes out, even all the way to burning the paper with your names on it.
On the 4th day, start at Noon. Write both of your names on the 2nd paper as before, but this time use black ink. Carve and dress the Pink Candle as before and name the two sides as before, saying: "Spirit of Love, i name this woman [or man] [your full name] and this man [or woman] [name of lover]. As is done to this candle, may it be done to our hearts." Then place the candle against your bare body, between your breasts if you are a woman, or at heart-level if you are a man, saying, "[Name of lover], love me as i love you. Desire me as i desire you. Come to me as i come to you. By the link between my heart and yours, be mine as i am yours." Light both wicks of the candle as you say this prayer: "Spirit of Romantic Love, i burn this candle in romantic love's name that i may be loved by [name] as i myself love [him or her] and that [name] will burn for my love as i burn for [his or hers]. Let our hearts be one. Amen." Let the candle burn about 1/3 of the way, then pinch it out.
On the 5th day, again burn the pink candle at Noon, and say the "Romantic Love" candle-lighting prayer. Burn it until it is about 2/3 gone.
On the 6th day, again light it at Noon, say the "Romantic Love" candle-lighting prayer, and let it burn until it goes out, even all the way to burning the paper with your names on it.
On the 7th day, start at Sun-down. Write both of your names on the 3rd paper as before, but this time use red ink. Dress the Red Candle with Come To Me Oil as before and name the two sides, saying: "Spirit of Love, i name this woman [or man] [your full name] and this man [or woman] [name of lover]. As is done to this candle, may it be done to our bodies." Then, if you are a woman, dress the candle with menstrual blood or sexual fluid; if a man, dress it with semen, saying, "[Name of lover], love me as i love you. Desire me as i desire you. Come to me as i come to you. By the nectar of my body, be mine as i am yours." Light both wicks of the candle as you say this prayer: "Spirit of Passionate Love, i burn this candle in passionate love's name that i may be loved by [name] as i myself love [him or her] and that [name] will burn for my love as i burn for [his or hers]. Let our bodies be one. Amen."
On the 8th day, again burn the red candle at Sunset, and say the "Passionate Love" candle-lighting prayer. Burn it until it is about 2/3 gone.
On the 9th day, again light it at Sunset, say the "Passionate Love" candle-lighting prayer, and let it burn until it goes out, even all the way to burning the paper with your names on it. As the red candle burns to the end, again bathe in pure water to which you have added 3 drops of Come To Me Oil. Pour the water over your head 9 times as you say, "Spirit of Love, i have done this work for love and love only, that i may be loved by [name] as i myself love [him or her]. My love is mine! Amen!" Set aside a basin of the bath-water.
The next morning, sprinkle some of the bath water at your loved one's door step to mark it and then sprinkle as you walk to your door and mark it also. When you go to see the one you love, wear Come To Me Oil. If you write to him, dress the letter with that oil.
Cleaning Up: Wrap up any left-over candle wax in a red cloth. Secure it with red thread, tie it, and bury it in your back yard.
Before dawn dissolve half the packet of Come To Me Bath Crystals into a tub of hot water. Pour the water over your head 9 times as you say the 23rd Psalm 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 the basin of bath-water to a crossroads and throw the water toward the sunrise in the East. Walk back home and don't look back.
Dust your body, the letters you send to your lover, or your socks and shoes with Come To Me Sachet Powders, or sprinkle a pinch of Come To Me Sachet Powders in the four corners of the room (or the bed) where you plan to meet with those whom you wish to infuence. Each time, recite selections from the Song of Solomon and name what you want.
Make the Come To Me Incense Powders into cones (use a twist of paper or a small candle snuffer cone, pack the incense in with your finger, and turn it out of the cone) or place it loose on a brazier. Many people find that keeping a pot of Incense smoking while they work increases their ability to break through into a spiritual space or magical way of working.
Depending on the gender of the one you wish to draw to you, carve your full name on a pink or red Offertory Candle, nude male "Adam" candle, or a male genitalia penis candle, nude female "Eve" candle, or a female genitalia vulva candle, and dress the candle with Come To Me Oil. You can mix this oil with other magical hoodoo or conjure oils according to your desires.
As you dress the candle, speak aloud your petition, such as, "With the help and grace of God, may we be married soon. I ask this in Jesus' name, amen."
You may burn the candle in sections (generally 15 minutes at a time) or let it burn through to the end, no matter how long it takes. If you burn it in sections, you may fnd it a good idea to light and burn the incense each time as well.
If you want the spell to be ongoing, or want a light at home to "back you up" while you are about your business, you would be better off to use a fixed and prepared Come To Me Glass Encased Vigil Candle. Write your petition on paper, write the name of the man you are working on, cross it with your name written 9 times, and set the Vigil Light in a safe place, such as the sink, bath tub, or shower stall, where it will not cause any problems while you are out.
Whenever it is convenient for you, dissolve the remaining half of the bath crystals in hot water and add the liquid to the rinse water when you do your laundry, especially your underwear and stockings. When you wear these clothes, you will be "dressed" for luck.
It is important to properly dispose of ritual remains.
Because these are magic spells for good luck, you may want to
keep the remains around your home. Wrap up any
left-over candle wax,
and used sachet powders in a
piece of cloth. Secure and tie it with thread or string.
Bury it in your back yard.
