So of course, you're resident hearth witch had to devise a kitchen spell.

Ingredients and Their Magickal Properties - Kitchen Magick

As I always mention in my recipe posts, the purpose of my work as a kitchen witch relies on knowledge and intention.

Yes, this recipe will still taste delicious without transforming it into a spell. However, knowing your ingredients is essential to utilizing this recipe to help change your mind, body, and spirit.

Below is a list of each added ingredient and its extraordinary power for this recipe. Please note that this is not every magical benefit of this plant or herb; these are just the areas I believe should be focused on for this specific recipe.


The apple, with its crisp sweetness and deep symbolism, has long been associated with love and romance in various cultures and magickal traditions.

In Greek mythology, apples were linked to Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who was often depicted with this fruit as a symbol of desire and beauty.

The famous story of the golden apple, inscribed with "to the fairest," which led to the Trojan War, highlights the apple's powerful connection to love and competition.

In Celtic lore, the apple is associated with Avalon, the mythical isle of apples, representing a paradise of eternal youth and love.

Magickally, apples are connected to the planet Venus and the element of water to help govern emotions and intuition, further deepening its role in love spells and rituals promoting emotional bonding and deep affection.

Magickal Powers: Joy, Love


In our spell recipe, sugar symbolizes more than sweetness—it represents the power to sweeten situations, aligning with our goal to ignite passion.

As we all know, passion doesn't necessarily indicate happiness. By focusing on sugar's ability to sweeten situations and moments it helps make passion and intimacy extra delicious.

Magickal Uses: Sweetening, Abundance


Cinnamon's warmth and sweetness have been associated with passion & love in folk traditions. Its spiciness and aroma also lend itself to putting itself in the aphrodisiac column.

In ancient Egypt, it was considered more precious than gold and was used in love potions and sacred rituals. The Greeks and Romans also valued it highly, often incorporating it into wedding ceremonies to symbolize love and fidelity.

Cinnamon was a common ingredient in love charms and amulets in medieval Europe. It was believed that burning cinnamon incense could invoke the presence of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, thereby attracting love and enhancing sexual pleasure.

For our spell, we tap into cinnamon's fiery energy to ignite romance, enhance desire, and foster intimacy.

Magickal Uses: Passion, Sex, Sensuality, Love


Cardamom, also known as the "Queen of Spices," has folklore steeped in magickal traditions for its association with love and passion. In ancient Indian texts, cardamom is considered an aphrodisiac.

In medieval Europe, cardamom was used in perfumes and love charms, believing its scent could captivate a desired lover. Folk magick involved creating a cardamom tea to rekindle the passion between partners.

Magickal Uses: Sex, Desire, Passion, Love
