Pour red wine into a pot or cauldron and add anise, cloves, rosemary, ground cumin, honey, and orange zest. Add two candied rose geranium leaves. (Substitute candied violets, angelica, or ginger if the geranium isn’t available.)
Stir the pot, let the wine come to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently while you focus on your desires. When it starts steaming, turn off the heat and let the potion cool off.
Strain the solids out using a fine sieve. Warm up the wine once more. When the aroma is arousing, pour it into glasses and serve it to the one you love.
Notorious potions are intimate spells for eternal love. We’ll never know if these are the most ancient spells of all but they’re undoubtedly the most widespread. They exist wherever there are women. The basic premise: if someone consumes even as little as a drop of a woman’s menstrual blood, that person will love her passionately forever. It is the ultimate binding spell, the most powerful love charm of all.
These spells can be spontaneous, although traditionally a few drops might be stored in a small perfume bottle or a “poison ring,” thus allowing the elixir to be secretly administered anytime. If menstrual blood was reserved, then the ability to administer this spell could survive even menopause.
- Note: Secrecy may be required for the spell to be administered; it is not required for it to work. If someone wants to love you forever, you may not need to go through all the machinations of these spells.
Menstrual blood is the single most potent magick spell ingredient. In addition to love spells, it’s used in healing, protection, and banishing. A rag soaked with menstrual blood repels the fiercest demons. The ancient Roman equivalent of today’s spiritual supply stores sold used rags, for those without personal access!
Menstrual blood is not the only love-binding substance, however, nor is this type of spell reserved solely for women to cast. Sexual secretions, as well as sweat, hair, and / or nail clippings administered orally should have a similar, if not quite as powerful effect.
Notorious potions have two things in common: the spell’s power is generated by the magickal workings of the human body, and it is administered orally.
The Basic Potion:
The classic potion consists of that single drop of menstrual blood. However, the mode of administration is also important. Allegedly, a cup of good strong coffee is the vehicle of choice. The best alternative is a glass of red wine. Tomato-based sauces are also used, if only because this is an easy camouflage.
Blend sugar with some menstrual blood clots. Brew it with coffee and serve to the intended recipient.
You’ll need one Orchis maculata root. In English this plant is known as “gander-goose” or “spotted orchis.” In Romany, its name is the more evocative “devil’s hand.” This potion is considered most potent if the root is gathered on St. George’s Eve or Midsummer’s Eve.
Dry the root, then pound and powder it using a mortar and pestle. Add a little menstrual blood. Camouflage it in your beloved’s favorite food and serve.
This one is believed most effective when prepared and consumed on New Year’s Eve. Burn apple seeds. Mix the ashes with menstrual blood and add this concoction to food. Serve to a man to inspire undying passion.
Snail Water Version:
Escargots are perceived as a potent aphrodisiac, presumably you’re serving them as well. Mix menstrual blood with the water in which you have boiled the snails. Serve to your beloved as a true love potion.
Put chicory coffee beans in a sealed bag with holes and store them up your vagina for a few hours while you are menstruating, then grind the beans and serve the coffee to the one you desire. Chicory is said to quicken and stir the spirit. Hopefully it doesn’t need to be said, but please do not store anything up your vagina for longer than several hours.
Notorious Potion Do’s And Don’ts
- If you have a disease which is transferred by blood you MUST NOT use menstrual blood to work magick on another.
- If you are storing fresh menstrual blood, you MUST keep it in a fridge.
- You ONLY need to use a drop or two for menstrual blood magick.
- To use menstrual blood in magick is an act of personal power. Never think of menstrual blood as dirty. It is an important part of you.

This is an old old magickal formula – and posted here for educational and informational purposes only. Mistletoe berries are poisonous. This is the reason there will be dreams – some of them bad – some of them possibly fatal – so do not make or ingest this mixture!
Steep mistletoe berries, to the number of nine, in a mixture of ale, wine, vinegar and honey; take them on going to bed, and you will dream of your future lot. A storm in this dream is very bad; it is most likely you will then marry a sailor, who will suffer shipwreck at sea; but to see either sun, moon or stars is an excellent presage; so are flowers; but a coffin is an index of a disappointment in love.

To excite passion in another, this is one of the best love potions available:
To a gill of red wine in a saucepan, add a teaspoon of rosemary leaves, a teaspoon of anise seed, a teaspoon of cloves, a teaspoon of clear honey, and a teaspoon of orange rind. Also add a pinch of ground cumin and three green leaves of rose geranium.
Stir the mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and allow the potion to simmer for two minutes. Then remove it from the heat and allow it to cool until it is not steaming before straining the botanicals out through a fine sieve. Finally return the potion to the heat until vapors begin to arise and it is ready to be served to your intended.
It is said that if a human drinks from fairy wine, he or she will see fairies. If a fairy happens to drink from the same goblet, then the person will see fairies forevermore. The following is a traditional recipe for fairy wine.
- 7 lbs. elderberries, stripped and stalked
- 3 gallons boiling water
- 6 cloves
- 3 lbs. loaf sugar
- 1 lb. seedless raisins
- 1/2 oz. ground ginger
- 1/2 oz. yeast
Place the berries in a large pot, and cover with the boiling water. Let the pot rest for twenty-four hours, then mash the fruit and strain it through a jelly bag. Place the strained fruit back in the pan, and add the cloves, sugar, raisins, and ginger. Boil this mixture for one hour, skimming constantly. Let it cool, and add the yeast. Bottle and cork the mixture, and let it rest for at least three months.
