Flora is the Roman spirit of flowering plants and, by extension, of fertility and the life-force. Her festival, the Floralia, once began April 27th and continued for six days of revelry, especially by women of all ages celebrating their own bodies and natural beauty. The festival was celebrated in the nude until the third century CE, when Roman authorities ordered that revelers be clothed. The festival held out in that form for one more century until all pagan festivals were banned. Vestiges survive in May Day celebrations.
Just as every blossom is unique, so is every body. Flora encourages one to cherish one’s own beauty without comparison to any other. This spell is particularly potent if timed to coincide with Flora’s old festival but may be cast at anytime.
Fill your bathtub with as many fresh flowers as possible, especially Flora’s favorite, beautiful, transient bean blossoms. Enter the bath and understand that you too are among Flora’s unique and perfect blossoms.

Do you want to be irresistible to love or money? Here’s how:
Dill is a very versatile herb that can be to dispel negative energy, and to attract money or love. The smell of dill is often enough to stimulate lust and other such feelings. Eating or bathing in dill can make you irresistible to those you desire.
Begin by visualizing yourself as irresistible to the object of your desire. While visualizing, create bath salts by combining a half cup of Epsom salts with a half-cup of dill weed and a half-cup of orange peel. Run your bath water. While the tub is filling up, place the bath salt and herb combination into a bowl, and pour approximately two cups of steaming water into the bowl. Place a towel over your head and carefully inhale the steam from the bowl for approximately ten minutes while you continue to visualize yourself being irresistible.
Keep an eye on the bath water to make sure the bathtub doesn’t overflow.
As you inhale the scented steam, visualize your desired love object being overcome by your beauty and charms. Once the time is up, pour the contents into your bath water and soak while continuing to visualize. Put this energy into effect as soon as possible by seeking out the attentions of the target of your desire.
