Chinese / English Spells

Chinese Love Potion

A traditional Chinese Love Potion consists of a handful of coriander seeds crushed and stirred into a glass of white wine while chanting the term "Warm seed, love run strong; warm heart, let us never part". The lovers are then to drink the wine, and their love is assured.
Compared to the English version, with uses the same ingredients, but you drink the glass of spelled wine, outside, by the full moon, and you then say:
Hear this spell and say it well,
over every hill and dale
night and day, month and year
love will travel swiftly here.
True of heart, lips that don't lie
strong of health, and sane of mind.
For your heart yearns for me
you can't rest till we meet
swift and silent like the moon
love to me now, before I swoon

Spell Apple

The Spell Apple spell is a spell for banishing. The apple is cut in half sideways. One half is rubbed with mint while the bad habit or problem to be banished is said out loud. The halves are then rejoined with a skewer, tied with ribbon, and buried. As the apple decomposes, the problem will go away.
Compared to the English version:
Cut an onion in quarters, and place each quarter in the corner's of your room. Every morning you chop them up and bury them in the back yard..... do this for 3 days and your problem will be banished.

This love potion you add to your bath water and it is suppose to make you irresistible. This potion consists of rosemary and thyme, steeped in boiling water preferably placed inside an earthen jug, with powdered orris root and lovage root added later. This mixture is then strained and stirred before being poured into the bathwater.
Again, compared to the English version.....
all the petals from a red rose
Put them in your bath along with a handfuls of fresh sea salt
Make sure you wash all over, including your hair and say:
Fragrant water, hear my plea
Make me irresistible to (he/or she)
