Favor Feb: Medieval Love Potion

Via the lovely ladies at Midnight Garden forums, Love Potion favors!

DIY Love potion favor

You will need

  • enough corked glass bottles for one per guest
  • plain paper
  • string or thin ribbon
  • black tea
  • rosemary
  • nutmeg
  • thyme
  • mint leaves
  • dried roses - various colours.
  • lemon leaves
To make the favors:

1. Chop the herbs and leaves and place in seperate piles.

2. Into each glass bottle/container, add

  • 2 teaspoons black tea
  • 1 pinch rosemary
  • 3 pinches thyme
  • 3 pinches nutmeg
  • 3 fresh mint leaves (chopped)
  • 6 rose petels (chopped)
  • 6 lemon leaves (chopped)
Use a funnel if you're having trouble.

3. Cork each bottle.

4. On a computer, write out the love tea instructions below, in a suitably 'witchy' font. Print these out small - around 8 blocks of instructions per page, and cut out into squares.

5. Place the squares in the oven on 150 celcius and bake for a few minutes. Be careful not to burn the paper. Roll each paper into a scroll and tie with string, leaving long ends dangling off.

6. Use those ends to tie the string around the neck of the bottle in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

Medieval Love Tea

To make another person love you, brew this tea in a earthware or coppor kettle on a Friday during a waxing moon. Sweeten with sugar and honey, as desired. The following friday, brew this tea for your beloved, and they shall desire you.
