I’m sure there isn’t one lover out there who wouldn’t want to know one magic love spell, herb or enchantment to cast on their crush and make them fall head over heels.
Before anyone attempts to do this, let’s contemplate on Avicena’s take on this:
“Using love remedies against one’s will, forcing them to fall in love, is a great sin.”
Magic elixirs can, indeed, cause an unaware person, to be unexpectedly engulfed by the flames of love. But sooner or later, they will realize that his/her inflection does not come from the heart, and that hot love will turn into blind addiction, and eventually,into hatred.
True love goes beyond the secretive power of certain magic spells.
This being said, I hope you understand that this article aims to help you learn about love herbs and how herbs can heal a heart, but not use them to make magic potions and break the natural laws of the universe. Remember that everything we do in life comes back to use tenfold.

Love Herbs & Moon Phases
If you plan to use the magical properties of love plants, it is best not to buy them from the store or markets. Experienced magicians teach us that the plants harvested with our hands have much greater powers.
Herbs for love spells are harvested according to the phases of the month.
It is best to collect them either before sunrise or after sunset, because love herbs have to do with feelings, and the planet that governs our feelings is the Moon. And the moon is associated with the night. Some herb magicians go further and collect their herbs exclusively on certain days of the week, according to the planets these herbs are ruled by.
Thus, they collect:
- Monday – plants governed by the Moon
- Tuesday – plants ruled by Mars
- Wednesday – plants governed by Mercury
- Thursday – plants governed by Jupiter
- Friday – plants governed by Venus
- Saturday – Saturn-ruled plants
- Sunday – plants governed by the Sun
However, it’s too complicated to find the dominant planet of each plant, nor are their correspondents always perfect.
Therefore, you can resort to a reasonable compromise, gathering your love herbs on a Monday, the day that governs our feelings, or on a Friday, the day dedicated to the goddess of love.

In ancient times, these love herb was used in the worshiping of the goddess Freya, considered the protector of love by the Germanic tribes.
Young girls often used St. John’s wort to as an oracle in their love dilemmas.

Both myrtle and rose enjoy a special protection from the goddess of love, Aphrodite (Venus, in Roman mythology). Girls were convinced that by offering a cup of myrtle tea to their boyfriends, they would never leave them.
