"When you walk down the street, do you like to be noticed? Do you want attention and admiring glances -- the kind that may lead to friendships, good times, or even meeting that one true love with whom you could spend your life? LOOK ME OVER is the refreshingly direct name for a sweetly scented perfume oil that is said to work on mens' imaginations and to cause them to notice and admire the way you appear."
-- The Lucky Mojo Curio Co. catalogue
Look Me Over is an old hoodoo formula for oil, incense, sachet powders, and bath crystals that are designed to attract the visual admiration of men. These products can be utilized in spells to draw new friends or worn on the body to increase desirability among those you already know. The symbolism on the label is obvious -- a pretty young woman is the object of rapt fascination; she pulls men to her with the strength of a love spell.
The labels shown here are from a 1/2 oz. bottle of Lucky Mojo brand Look Me Over oil for anointing oneself or dressing candles or a mojo bag and a foil packet of Look Me Over incense powders. The same formula is also available in the form of Look Me Over sachet powders, and Look Me Over bath crystals. 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 Look Me Over include Rose and Elecampane, 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.
Look Me Over is one of a family of related formulas that also includes Love Me, Come To Me, Bewitching, Marriage, Cleo May, Follow Me Boy, Dixie Love, Kiss Me Now!, and Fire of Love products. Each one of these old-time recipes is slightly different -- some placing emphasis on passion, others on physical attractivenes, or control of a lover, or all of these combined with marital happiness 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.
Using Look Me Over spiritual supplies can be as simple as wearing the perfumed oil as a personal scent to attract new friends or to make an impression at a party -- to laying down sachet powders in one's work-place to draw attention to oneself. When starting Look Me Over work, some people like to get things going with a full-blown spell and then continue to use the perfumed oil to dress themselves, the letters they write, or a physical location to which they are trying to attract attention.
It is important to note that while the labels for Lucky Mojo Look Me Over spiritual supplies show a woman in the foreground and two men looking at her, she's also looking back at them; thus men can use these products to attract attention, and so can people interested in getting noticed by those of the same sex as themselves.
But there is more to Look Me Over than mere social and sexual attraction: Included in the recipe is at least one herbal item that comes from Cherokee and Iroquois magical herb usage for what used to be called "skin magic" and "basket magic." In the old days, skin and basket magic utilized herbs and roots that were made into teas which were sprinkled lightly on fur hides or on hand-woven baskets so that when the buyers were going through piles of goods at a trader meet-up, those items would appear more attractive -- would get the first look -- and then, if touched, would encourage purchase. So Look Me Over spiritual supplies can also be used commercially, on goods for sale, and for items that are available for rent, lease, or hire.
LOOK ME OVER SPELL
Here is a woman's magic spell you can work to attract admiring attention from men you desire. It is what one might call a "starter" love magic spell because it can be used for drawing in attention from several men before you actually choose which one you want to have love you.
This spell can easily be adapted for use by a man or as a spell of attraction-getting in a commercial situation.
You will need:
1 red female image Candle 1 large Lodestone 1 packet Magnetic Sand 1 packet Look Me Over Incense Powders 1 packet Look Me Over Sachet Powder 1 packet Look Me Over Bath Crystals 1 bottle Look Me Over Dressing Oil
This spell takes 1 day to perform. Work it right 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 a Look Me Over spell to draw the attention of men in general, but no specific man, you can use a piece of paper on which you write words describing the kind of men you want to enchant -- like, "Single Men" or "Handsome, Single Men with Good Jobs," or "All the Men in Memphis, Tennessee."
To use a Look Me Over spell to draw a specific man's attention, just write his name 9 times on the piece of paper. 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 a love spell.
To use a Look Me Over spell to draw the attention of a wealthy man, you can substitute a crisp dollar bill (or a twenty dollar bill) for the piece of paper on which you write the kind of man you want. Write "Rich single men" 9 times on the money. This makes the spell about halfway between a love spell and a money spell.
To use a Look Me Over spell to draw the attention of several men whose names are known to you and among whom you wish to choose, you will need a separate piece of paper for each man, on which you have written each one'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 a love spell.
Before dawn on the first day, dissolve half the packet of Look Me Over 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. You are now ready to start the work.
DOING THE JOB:
Sprinkle a pinch of Look Me Over Sachet Powder in the four corners of the room. Each time, say the 23rd Psalm and name what you want.
Carve your full name on the red female image Candle and dress the candle with Look Me Over Oil. As you dress it, name its body parts, saying aloud things like, "My hair is glamorous ... my face is attractive ... my breasts are desirable..." and so forth, including as many parts of the body as you wish. and speaking with as much intimate detail as you feel comfortable.
Make the Look Me Over 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 under the Lodestone.
If working for attention from a specific man or men, place their name-paper(s) under the Lodestone. Say aloud, "I wish to be noticed and admired and to attract the attention of [name of person, persons, or type of people]."
Light the incense, then the candle.
Sprinkle Magnetic Sand on the Lodestone, saying, "As i feed you, so will you feed me." Let the candle burn through to the end, no matter how long it takes, and continue to light and burn the incense until it too is all used up.
The Lodestone is now "trained" to draw what you wish. Put it under your bed or in your lingerie drawer for love or hide it somewhere at your place of business.
DRESS YOUR CLOTHING:
After 3 days have passed -- or when 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 attention-getting.
It is important to properly dispose of ritual remains. Because this is a magic spell to draw attention 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 cloth. Secure and tie it with thread or string. Bury it in your yard, near your front door to draw attention to you.
