Love Token Spell

I get a lot of private requests for Love Spells.

I personally have never tried one but I found this one on the web and thought someone might like to try it.

Let me know how it works!

Relationship Token Spell

On the night of a waxing Moon gather a pink candle, two rose petals, lavender oil and a small china plate. Cast a circle and light the candle. Contemplate the flame as a symbol of love’s light. Place the rose petals on the plate and add three drops of oil while saying:

“Love’s truth burns bright,
I welcome my soul mate on this night.”

Tip the candle to drip wax onto the petals, enough to form a coin sized token. Mold the wax and the petals together. Keep this token safe for six Moons then bury it beneath a rose bush.
