MAGIC ROSE LOVE AMULET
One and a half cups of Rose petals Two cups of rose water or water
Rose Essential oil Ylang-Ylang essential oil Rolling pin
Small cookie cutter or very small drinking glass Scissors
Ice pick, Knitting needle or wooden skewer
Medium enamel pot or Pyrex pot and lid
Start by snipping off and discarding the white portion of each petal.
Focus on drawing love to you as you do this. Drop the petals into the enamel pot.
Cover the petals with the rose water or ritual water. (Reserve the essential oil until later.)
Cover and slowly bring it to a simmer. Do not boil!
Simmer for a total of thirty minutes. Focus on drawing love to you.
Remove from heat, stir in some of the rose essential oil, then allow it to sit in the lidded pot overnight.
The next day, return it to the heat and repeat the process, adding more rose water or ritual water, if needed.
(Add a few drops of rose essential oil.) Do this for a total of three days.
On the third day, let it cook until it is a dryish mass.
Let it cool a bit, then remove it from the pot and squeeze out the remaining fluid.
The rose mass should be able to hold its shape.
Knead in a few drops of ylang-ylang essential oil; concentrating on drawing love to you as you knead.
Divide the rose 'dough' in half. Roll out one of the balls and cut with a cookie cutter.
With the ice pick, make two small holes to be used for hanging the amulet.
If desired, etch in your sigil, a rune or other love symbol.
(You can make the remaining dough into another amulet for a friend or to hold in reserve, as it will 'melt' over time.)
Set the amulet away to dry, for a week. Every night, gently turn the amulet to dry evenly.
Focus on drawing love to you as you do this. The finished amulet is a velvety greyish-black.
String it on a bit of yarn (so it reaches, when worn, to chest level.) Wear under your clothing, next to your skin.
