Hi, my loves and welcome to WiccaNow. Recently I’ve been posting a lot about common witch supplies, like this post on altar decorations, the one on witch wands, a guide to basic witch supplies, an explanation of mirror magick and most recently this post on how to make a protection jar. Today I want to cover something that lots of people have asked me about, namely, what the most common ingredients for love spells are.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but everything in witchcraft is very fluid in terms of what you absolutely need. You can cast a powerful spell with no ingredients or you can cast an equally powerful spell with a myriad of complicated steps and supplies. Personally, I always like to have a few ingredients and tools involved when I cast a spell. I’m a very hands-on person, and I find I can focus better and cast more powerful spells if I have something tangible to work with.
As I said, you don’t NEED to have any ingredients at all for your love spells, but if you plan on casting a few, it might be a good idea to have a little love spell kit in your home so that you’re always ready to cast a spell if you want/need to. Most love spells will have relatively similar ingredients and trust me, they aren’t hard to find or expensive.
Below is a guide to 8 common ingredients for love spells. Stock up on a few to make yourself a kick-ass love spell kit and you’ll always be ready to call love into your life.

My Top 8 Ingredients For Love Spells
Ingredients for Love Spells #1 Rose
This has to be the most common and well know ingredient in love spells right? I think almost every love spell I’ve come across will have some form of rose in it.
Roses have been used for centuries to symbolise love and affection. Did you know that hanging a rose from the ceiling is meant to create a “cone of secrecy”? This means that everything that occurs under the rose won’t be discovered by anyone else. Pretty handy when dealing with affairs of the heart right?
A rose is associated with all the love deities, including Aphrodite, Eros and Adonis. Rose will enhance your intuition (it works particularly well with female intuition, sorry boys) and it attracts love, luck and health.
While rose petals are probably the most common ingredient for love spells, you can actually use all parts of the rose. Rosehips are particularly good for luck in love while also welcoming positive energies into your life. Rose essential oil can be used in the same way that rose petals are used in a love spell and is a much more compact to store. I almost always have a small bottle of rose oil in my house, just in case I need to draw some love to me! Also it smells amazing in a diffuser and promotes self-love so it’s awesome if you need a relaxing bath.
While I’ve listed rose because it’s the most common ingredient for love spells there are a lot of really great herbs and plants out there that you can also use. Check out these posts on herbs for love, herbs for love spells and herbs for self-love if you need some inspiration.
Ingredients for Love Spells #2 Rose Quartz
I’m an absolute crystal lover and there is no crystal more commonly associated with love spells than rose quartz! Did you know that rose quartz is the crystal of unconditional love?
Rose quartz stimulates the heart chakra, is closely associated with both the moon and the sun (you can read this to mean that it’s associated strongly with both the male and female energies) and helps to soothe the spirit which in turn allows love to flow. This beautiful crystal promotes compassion and peace.
Fun Fact: Rose quartz beads have been found which date back to as early as 7000BC and the writings from early American cultures call rose quartz the “love stone”.
Rose quartz is used to remove energetic blockages in the body, which is sometimes the biggest obstacle for finding love. There are a lot of people who subconsciously believe that they aren’t worthy of love, meaning that they aren’t open to the possibility of finding it. Working with rose quartz can help to remove those blockages and let you open your heart to love again.
If you are looking to build a witchy love spell kit, definitely consider adding rose quartz or another love crystal like garnet, ruby or emerald.
Ingredients for Love Spells #3 Pink or Red Candle
Candle magick is one of the oldest (and most often used) forms of magick out there. They help to cleanse the space where you are spell casting and they bring a powerful transformative energy with them.
Candles harness the element of fire, which is the ultimate element of transformation. Think about…
