Love spells, rituals, and potions are a hotly debated topic in the world of witchcraft. Some witches believe that all love spells, including the one in this post, are wrong as they work against someone's free will. I do not subscribe to that thinking. Instead, I believe love spells, rituals, and potions work on what already exists, but that doesn't necessarily make all love spells ethical. There are certainly situations where manipulating the odds in your favor may not be entirely ethical, but that is for you to decide.

This love spell is designed to ignite passions and promote lust, whether it be in you or your lover. If you are in a relationship, I highly encourage you to drink this sipping chocolate with your lover, with their consent of course. Double the recipe to make enough for two people and serve as a dessert or whenever you are ready to take things to the bedroom. Today being Lupercalia, a pastoral pagan festival celebrated February 15th in Ancient Rome designed to purify and prevent infertility, I can see no better time to partake in this potion.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup milk of choice (I used creamy oat milk)
  • 1 teaspoon rose petals
  • 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate or sipping chocolate (I used French Board Chocolate's Sipping Chocolate)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder

What to Do

Combine milk and rose petals in a saucepan and heat until steaming but not boiling. Stir continuously to avoid scorching the milk and do not let it come to a boil. You may need to remove from heat and reheat several times. Allow the milk and rose to infuse for about 5 minutes. Strain and reheat the milk and rose infusion to steaming. Remove from heat and add chocolate, cinnamon, and chili powder. Whisk clockwise to draw love until well combined. As you stir, visualize your intention filling the love potion with pink and red light. Serve warm.

Why You Did It

Understanding the why's of a spell are just as important as performing it. It helps you understand the process so you can modify the spell or ritual to suit your needs and helps guide you to write your own. It's my intention that by providing these explanations, you can build a better understanding of how spells are written and executed so you can modify and build your own spells (the goal of my Spellcraft Series).

For this spell, we combine milk, rose, chocolate, cinnamon, and chili powder to create a potent love potion. Milk is magically associated with fertility and abundance, as it provides nourishment for growing babies. I personally used oat milk in my potion, which is also associated with fertility and abundance. Roses are the quintessential flower of love and are used to encourage love and lust in this potion. Chocolate, cinnamon, and chili powder are all mild aphrodisiacs, thus promoting sexual energies and lust. Like roses, chocolate is also associated with love, while cinnamon and chili powder add some heat to the spell to spice things up and get your blood pumping.

Wish to break this spell? Unfortunately, this is not a spell to be undone. You have to let it work through your system.

Remember to record this ritual on your ritual/spell worksheet or in your Book of Shadows for reference later.


I hope everyone has a wonderful Lupercalia, whether you are celebrating alone or with others. May your future be full of love.
