In the beginning of 28 Days of Self Love, I wrote about my Self Love Potion which is essentially a fruit smoothie blended with the intent of self-love & sensuality.
Traditionally potions are water or alcohol-based liquids mixed with fruits & herbs in a cauldron to manifest magickal effects for anyone who drinks it.
I love brewing in cauldrons but I don’t limit my magick to the traditional pagan tools. I see no problem with using household appliances to prepare potions & infusions.
In this case, the ordinary blender is our cauldron and a simple fruit smoothie recipe transforms into a magickal potion of self-love.
Vanilla Almond Milk
Vanilla -Vanilla planifolia-
Vanilla induces feelings of love & stimulates lust.
Almond -Prunus communis-
Almond promotes any spiritual healing needed to forgo the pain of past incidents which have hindered your ability to love yourself.
Spinach- Spinacea oleracea
Spinach is jam-packed with vitamins, antioxidants & minerals for our Divine Temples which makes it a wonderful self-love ingredient. Not to mention it increases our general prosperity. Woohoo!
Strawberries- Fragaria vesca
Strawberries promote a flirty sense of romantic love.
Blueberries- Vaccinium corymbosum
Blueberries provide protection, especially when under psychic attack. Bullies and all-around haters can be poisonous to someone on the path to self-love. Unfortunately, sometimes in life we must come in contact with such poison on a day-to-day basis whether at school or in our work environment. Blueberries help build a protective shield, guarding you from the inside out.
Mangos- Mangifera indica
Mangos also provide protection and increases sexual desire, awakening our inner-sensuality.
Banana- Musa acuminate
Bananas awaken a sense of spiritual love & thanks to its phallic shape, it also stimulates sexual stamina.
Chia Seeds- Salvia hispanica
Chia seeds provide sustenance, good health & protection.
Honey- Apis mellifera
Honey is perfect for all kinds of attraction & passion, as it is the favorite offering for love goddess like Aphrodite and Oshun. It is also used in solar magick to promote self-confidence and a higher self-esteem.
The last ingredient for this potion is Intent. Without intent, this smoothie is simply a delicious drink filled with healthy vitamins and nutrients.
SELF LOVE POTION RECIPE
- Lay out your ingredients and your blender on your counter to be cleansed and consecrated.
- Ground & center yourself, then build your personal power from within, visualizing your solar plexus or your heart chakra beginning to glow brightly.
- Once you feel your personal power has reached its peak, push this cleansing energy out of your hands and blast away any negativity from your ingredients. Grasp your blender and visualizing it glowing with this energy. See it in your mind’s eye as a cauldron, boiling and bubbling within the hearth of your heart.
- Enchant your fruits and vegetables by running your fingers through or over each ingredient. I like to chant its name in Latin, building up my personal power and connecting with the plants’ special magickal gifts. For example, as I hold the strawberries I repeat “Fragaria vesca”, visualizing a pink or red glow emanating from them, feeling their romantic, loving vibrations.
- As you add each ingredient, visualize tossing them in your hearth’s cauldron. Try to imagine the heat of the crackling fire and the sounds of the bubbling brew.
- Say a little prayer, chant, affirmation or mantra that speaks of your wish to conjure self love. Visualize yourself looking into the mirror and loving what you see. Imagine going about your day and doing everything with love. See yourself projecting and accepting the divine gift of love.
- Finally, push down on the blend button and as the blender loudly mixes the ingredients together, grasp the top of the blender and connect to the electric vibrations literally pulsating in your hands.
Pour the potion into a glass and go to a place that brings you happiness and serenity. Sip the potion slowly, enjoy the flavors. Self-love requires slowing down to truly connect with yourself and enjoy your own company.
Give this Self Love Potion a try or craft one of your own and prepare to feel absolutely & positively- lovely!
Blessed Be, beauties!
