Hoodoo in Theory and Practice by catherine yronwode

"Do you have him but are not sure if he will stay? Want her to marry you, not just be your "friend"? LOVE ME is our oldest and most traditional love formula. It's the one alleged to get the goods: romance, passion, proposals of marriage, and faithfulness. Wear it, burn it, dress candles with it, bathe in it -- try it!"
-- The Lucky Mojo Curio Co. catalogue
Love Me is a very old hoodoo formula for anointing oil , incense, sachet powders, candles, and washing products used in love spells that are designed to draw a person of the opposite sex closer and cause him or her to openly declare feelings of love. These spiritual supplies are usually used when the lover is someone the practitioner knows -- that is, they are not used to attract a new or unknown lover.
The label shown here is from a Lucky Mojo brand Love Me Vigil Candle, burned by those who wish to draw love to them and elicit love from those to whom they are attracted. The same herbs and fragrances used to dress this candle for customers and clients are the basis of Lucky Mojo Love Me dressing oil . used for anointing oneself, fixing the home, preparing pink or red offertory candles or feeding a mojo bag. These herbs and scents also can be found in Love Me incense powder, sachet powder, and bath crystals.
Like the rest of the Lucky Mojo line, this product contains genuine herbal essential oils, not synthetic fragrances. Lucky Mojo labels are adapted from vintage packaging and in many cases the images are as traditional as the ingredients themselves.
Love Me is one of a family of related formulas that also includes
Follow Me Boy,
Come To Me,
Kiss Me Now!,
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,
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 Follow Me Boy.
How you choose to use Love Me spiritual supplies is, of course,
up to you, but one very traditional
method is to employ them in conjunction with the 23rd Psalm,
while praying for all that is
PSALM 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me. Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. Thou anointest my head with oil. My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Amen.
There are thousands of specific spells that employ a variety of hoodoo spiritual supplies. Here are some of the ways you can use Love Me brand spiritual supplies to attract the love you desire.
You may perform spells for increasing seductiveness, rulership over men, or passionate love whenever you desire. If the need is not urgent, you can take time to align your spell-casting with cosmic forces and work by a Waxing Moon Phase, so that the Moon grows bigger while you work. But don't let the Moon Phases hold you back: if the timing is not right, you can do the work whenever it is best for you.
Before dawn dissolve half the packet of Love 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 Love Me Sachet Powder, or sprinkle a pinch of Love Me Sachet Powder in the four corners of the room (or the bed) where you plan to meet with those whom you wish to infuence. Each time, say the 23rd Psalm and name what you want.
Make the Love 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 Love 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 my man love me as i love him, now and forever, 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 Love 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 love-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, incense ashes, and used sachet powders in a piece of cloth. Secure and tie it with thread or string. Bury it in your back yard.
