Murmur your desires while threading a brand new needle, which has never been used, with unbleached thread. This must be passed through the clothing of the woman or man you love near the heart three times.
(He/she does not have to be in the clothing at the time, although no doubt that would enhance the strength of the spell.)
This magic bottle spell can be worked on anyone’s name you want to sweeten. Depending on what relationship the person has to you, what special items you put into the name-packet, the color of the candle you choose, and the hoodoo oil you dress it with, this trick will cause the person you name to like you more, to love you more, to favor your petition, to want to help you, to be sympathetic to your cause, or to forgive any wrongs you have committed.
It can be used to influence and sweeten a judge in a court case, a loan officer at the bank, a boss from whom you want a raise, a teacher in your school from whom you want a good grade, a lover with whom you want a reconciliation, an in-law who has been back-biting you, or friend who has cut you off because of a foolish quarrel.
You will need:
- a jar of sweetener
- a piece of paper
- a pen or pencil
- optional herbs, curios, and/or bodily concerns
- a candle
- a candle-dressing oil
Get a small jar of sweetener. This can be honey, Karo Syrup, Crystal Syrup, home-made brown sugar syrup, Log Cabin Syrup, Vermont maple syrup, Bre’r Rabbit Blackstrap Molasses or whatever you desire — as long as it is in a container with a metal lid. You can buy the goods in a pint-size glass Mason jar or pour the sweetening of your choice into a jar of your own at home. All that matters is that it should be a short, squat jar with a metal lid, filled up to the shoulder of the jar.
In the old days, when skin color was a lot more important to people than it is now, it was recommended that the color of the sweetener match the skin of the person you wanted to sweeten. Thus, for a white judge, you might use Crystal Syrup, and for a Latino loan officer you might use light brown sugar syrup, and for a dark-skinned lover you might use Bre’r Rabbit Blackstrap Molasses. Frankly, these days specifying a person’s skin color is not as meaningful as it once was (for which we can all be thankful), and today many folks prefer to use honey for the spell, no matter what the target’s skin colour is, because it is a natural sweetener and not man-made. I believe that if you just follow your own intuition and decide which sweetener you like the best, you can be confident that you have made the right choice.
Next, prepare your paper.
Again, in the old days, we would be told to use white paper for a white person, tan paper for a high-brown, and rough old grocery-bag paper for a person of dark color, but these days the type of paper you use can simply be a matter of personal style. Manu people prefer the kind of cream-colored parchment paper. I often use a smooth, tan-colored light-weight shopping bag paper because that is my choice, based on the way I was taught, which was that such paper is “pure paper.”
No matter which kind of paper I use, I prepare my paper by tearing it neatly on all four sides so there is no machine-cut edge. Of course some folks trim their paper square with scissors — and the spell still works for them. So go ahead and prepare your paper just as you wish and that will suffice.
Once you have got your paper together, write the person’s name three times on it, one name under the other. For example, if the other person’s name is John Russell Brown, it would look like this:
John Russell Brown
John Russell Brown
John Russell Brown
Then rotate the paper 90 degrees clockwise and write your own name across the person’s name, also three times. If your name is Abigail Samantha Little, it would look like this:
Abigail Samantha Little
Abigail Samantha Little
Abigail Samantha Little
The result will be that the two names are crossed over each other, like a cross or a tic-tac-toe grid, and the other person’s name will be under yours.
This is called crossing and covering their name. If the sweetening is being done for love, you can use a red ink pen. Otherwise, the color of the ink does not matter, and you can just as easily use a pencil.
Now all around the crossed names, write your specific wish in a circle. If you need a guideline, lightly sketch the circle-shape with a pencil and then follow around it when writing with your ink pen. You must write your wish in one continuous run of script letters, with no spaces — AND WITHOUT LIFTING YOUR PEN FROM THE PAPER. Do not cross your t’s or dot your i’s. Just write the words in one run and be sure to join up the end of the last word with the beginning of the first word so the circle is complete. Then you can go back and cross your t’s and dot your i’s.
To make it easy to connect the word together at the end, I have found it best to make my petition in the form of short commands, such as “help me favor me help me favor me” or “love me love me love me” or “forgive me come back forgive me come back.”
If you make a mistake — for instance, if you lift your pen in the middle of writing your petition-circle — throw away the paper and start it all over again. You want it to be perfect.
Other ingredients can be added to the name-paper if you wish — a piece of court case root for a court case spell, two rose petals for a love spell, a lump of sugar for a family member, two clove buds for friendship, bayberry root or sassafras root for a money spell, a pair of Adam-and-Eve roots for love, two small Lodestones for sexuality, a pinch of deer’s tongue leaves for a proposal of marriage, a square of camphor for cleaning out bad things of the past, and so forth.
If you are sweetening someone for love, then in addition to the name-paper and whatever optional herbs, roots, or minerals you choose, you must also get one of the person’s hairs and one of your hairs. If the hairs are long enough, tie them together. Otherwise, just lay them crosswise to each other. In either case, place them on the name-paper.
Don’t ask me what to do if you can’t get their hairs ’cause I can’t help with that. Either work the spell without the hairs and expect a much lower rate of success or get the hairs! Don’t load the paper up with lots of other stuff thinking that if you can’t get the hairs that six different love-herbs and two lodestones will be as strong as two hairs. They won’t be.
Work the magick
Fold the paper toward you to bring what you want your way and speak aloud your wish as you do so. Turn the paper and fold it again, and again, always folding toward you, to bring what you want your way. Speak aloud your wish each time you fold the paper toward you. Fold it until it will not fold any more.
Open the jar of honey or syrup. To make room for the folded paper packet, you will need to eat some of the contents. Take out a spoon’s worth, and as you eat it, say, “As this honey [or syrup] is sweet to me, so will I become sweet to John Russell Brown [or the name of the person you are working this on].” You can do this three times — taking out three small spoonfuls of sweetener and speaking your wish aloud each time. Push the folded paper packet down into the jar and close up the lid.
Dress an offertory candle (a 6″ long candle or a 4″ long one, nothing fancy) with an appropriate anointing oil or a combination of hoodoo or conjure oils. Use a white candle for general blessing and healing, a red one for sexual love, a pink one for reconciliation, a brown one for a court case, and so forth.

Stand the candle on the lid of the closed-up jar and light it. You can melt the candle to the lid with hot wax if need be.
Let the candle burn all the way out. Do this every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, for as long as it takes. Add each new candle on top of the remains of the last one. I have seen people’s syrup-jar bottle spells like this done for court cases that were continued for so long and required so many candles that you could not see the jar under all the dripped-on wax!

The following spell is for drawing someone into a sexual relationship. Here’s how to do it:
Lay two sewing needles together, with the eye of one beside the point of the other. Wrap them in a mint or basil leaf, wrapping it toward you. Secure with a red thread, knotting in your desire.
Wrap this in a piece of red silk or satin, again rolling or folding toward you. Place this in a red flannel bag and wear it around your neck or waist.
To end the spell: Remove the charm, take it apart and break both needles.
To reinforce the charm: Feed it with three drops of dark rum added to the open bag.
Open a bird that is soon to be roasted,
Draw from its body the shining heart,
Let it with drops of blood be basted,
Seethe it in wine and set it apart;
When it is cool, in your left hand take it;
Squeezing it tight as your fingers can,
Say these words to warm it and wake it,
So to possess any maiden or man:
My fire is thine,
Thy blood my wine:
Thy love, my dove,
Must soon be mine.
Halve, with the blade of a silver knife,
It’s yielding flesh, delicious and sweet,
Then taste it, munch it, swallow its life –
Next to your own, that heart shall beat.
This nice little ritual helps you to set your magickal intentions for the year. It can be done on your birthday or an anniversary or holiday that is important to you, it can be done on New Years Eve or New Years Day. And of course, a ritual such as this can be done at any time – just remember that it is a commitment, and prepare to follow through.
Here’s how it works:
Get a new white candle, matches, a pieces of paper, a black pen, and some black thread. If you like incense or have any other objects that are special to you, like a crystal, stone bowl, or anything else, you can get them out, but they are not necessary.
Find a quiet spot to work, where others will not disturb you.
On a small piece of paper, write out your intentions for this work. Do you seek to be a witch, learn witchcraft, or just know more? If you are comfortable calling on the Goddess and God, do so. If not, you can address it to whatever divine force you are comfortable using, such as God, Great Spirit, the Tao, or the Universe. Here is an example:
“I,(state your name), ask in the name of the Goddess and God for aid in my studies of witchcraft. I intend to complete this work successfully within one year and become a witch if this is correct and for my highest good. I ask to be open to all experiences and understand all lessons given to me. So mote it be.” (“so mote it be” means “it is so”. It is a common affirmation in witchcraft.)
Hold the white candle. Think about spirituality. Think about divinity and the Goddess and God. Invite them into your life, or reaffirm your bond with them. If you have incense, light it now.
Spend a few moments reflecting on the definition, history, and qualities of the witch. Think about where witchcraft has been, and where you hope to go with it.
Read your intention slip out loud . Then roll it up like a scroll and tie it with the black thread, binding it together and sealing your intention.
Keep the paper someplace special, where you will not lose it. You will use this slip as part of your initiation ritual in a year. In a later chapter, you will build a meditation altar. You can then keep the candle and intention slip on the altar.
How do I love thee?
Let me count the seeds…
Here is a binding spell to do with your partner, lover, or spouse. The doing of this spell will bind the two of you together, and bring prosperity, protection, and fertility.
To effect the binding:
- Break open two pomegranates.
- One partner eats 220 seeds,
- The other eats 284 seeds .
- Count them and eat them together
