The Magic of Food: Love

From Scott Cunningham's "Encyclopedia of Wicca in the Kitchen"


There are many forms of love. Most of the foods mentioned here can be used for love in all its manifestations.

All love starts from within. We cannot and must not give love to others before we have respect and love for ourselves. Except out of compassion or pity, who would love us if we dont even like ourselves?

One of the physical manifestations of self love is taking care of ourselves. Food, which certainly affects our bodies, also affects our emotions. It can be a powerful tool in creating self love and, once this has been accomplished, to bring us into aloving, multifaceted relationship with another person.


The old saying, The way to a mans heart is through his stomach is certainly true, even if sexist. In the early stages of a relationship, preparing meals for your love is an outward manifestation of your feelings. You not only care enough to cook for him (or her), youre also directly contributing to that persons survival by offering him or her the food necessary for life. 

On the other hand, eating food specifically prepared for you by another is not only a gratifying, nourishing experience, it also shows your trust in that person (at least, your trust that she or he wont deliberately poison you).

Candlelit dinners in a small restaurant, with splits of champagne and tasty food are designed to create emotional intimacy between the diners. Dining out is an accepted part of the dating process, and can certainly be continued with good effect during magical diets.

To gain the magical effects of these love foods, however, they should be prepared and eaten at home. If youve already established a relationship with another person, prepare the dishes together. This implies an equal, harmonious relationship. Simple eat these foods and visualize if youre not currently enjoying a relationship. You soon will be.

Start with the love for the self, then branch out in search of another. If you already have another, deepen the relationship with these foods. 

Dont make the common mistake of believing these foods will produce a desire for sex. These are love foods, after all.

Me and my partner broke up at the end of last year. He wanted to go on a break, I didn’t want to but I eventually agreed. He said he needs time away for a while and be single. He said he would contact me when he was ready to speak to me again but its approaching eight months. I don’t know how long he’s going to take but I was willing to gave him as much time he needs to think things through. I can’ wait much longer, so I search whole web and I found very powerful magic person. He has this website http://magical-rituals.com , I buy from his love spell, and it worked after one month. I ‘m happy again.
