The famous Carmelite Water, first made by 17th century Carmelite nuns was used to treat nervous headache and neuralgia. It combined lemon balm with lemon-peel, nutmeg, coriander and angelica root. Here’s a recipe with a magickal twist:
- 1 bunch of lemon balm leaves
- the rind of one small lemon
- 2 sprigs sweet marjoram (or 1/2 teaspoon of dried)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 5 cloves
- 1 nutmeg, grated
- 1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
- piece of angelica root the length of your little finger
- 1 pint brandy, vodka, or other spirits
On the New Moon, bruise the herbs in a mortar and pestle. Put them in a pint jar and fill with your chosen spirits. Let sit in a warm, dark place for two weeks, shaking daily. Strain, filter, and put up in a pint (8 oz) bottle. The longer you let this sort of tincture sit, the better it will taste. Store in a cool, dark place.
Use to improve the complexion or as a compress in fevers. To make a cologne, use spirits of wine instead of brandy or vodka and add 20% water to the final produce.

Herbs can be mixed and combined to produce a “recipe” that’s just right for each of us. Since the Sun sign you were born under has such an amazing influence on your health and well-being, using the herbs that correspond with that sign alone can be a tremendous help in times of stress or illness. Here’s a short list of herbs that seem to be tailor-made due to their associations with both the planetary ruler and the positive qualities of this sign.
There’s no sign that hangs on to youth with more fervency and determination than Sagittarius. To keep that youthful appearance and disposition going as you travel the world in search of yet another experience, drink a tea made of Anise, Rosemary, and Vervain. To aid in making your dreams more prophetic than they already are, use Mugwort. Burn clove incense to attract the wealth you’ll need to pay for your travels.
To make another person fall in love with you, brew this tea on a Friday during a waxing moon.

- 6 lemon leaves
- 3 cups pure spring water
- Sugar to taste
- Honey for sweetness
Place all ingredients in an earthenware or copper tea kettle. Boil three cups of pure spring water and add to the kettle. Sweeten with sugar and honey.
While the tea is steeping, recite this magical rhyme:
By the light of the moon I brew this tea
to make (lover’s name) desire me.
Drink some of the tea and say:
Goddess of Love hear now my plea
let (lover’s name) desire me!
On the following Friday, brew another pot of the love potion tea and give some to the person you want to love you. He or she will soon begin to fall in love with you.

Essential Oils / Fragrance Oils:
Fill an appropriately sized bottle with the dry ingredients. Add the fragrance oils. Then fill with Jojoba carrier oil. Wrap the bottle with copper wire to increase the charge. A small crystal can also be placed into the bottle.
I used Jojoba carrier because it is safe, natural, and has a 100-year shelf life. The recipe for Dressed Pumpkin Seeds can be found here: Dressed Pumpkin Seeds
