This particular love spell has its roots in good old fashioned Hoodoo. However, it also reflects strong European inferences. The original source for this spell is referenced in both Frank C. Brown’s “North Carolina Folklore, Popular Beliefs and Superstitions”, Vol. V pp. 566-567 and Newbell Niles Puckett’s, “Folk Beliefs of the Southern Negro,” pp. 266. Harry Hyatt Middelton also mentions a very similar love spell which clearly indicates that this particular spell does have some validity and was commonly used.
Take a piece of plain white paper. Get a pin and prick the tip of your left wedding ring finger. Using the pin as a writing tool, write your name and the name of your love interest in the center of the paper with the blood from your finger. You will then need to draw three small circles around the names (also in blood). If you have any Come to Me Oil, I would anoint a bit of oil over you and your love interest’s name. If you have lavender, Jasmine or Rose buds place them in the center of the paper. Fold the paper towards you, turn it 90 degrees and fold it again (towards you). Take some of your own hair and tie it around the folded paper. You will then want to bury it at 9:00 p.m. at night.
Allegedly, this will encourage your partner to come to you within three days. If your romantic partner has become intrigued with another woman or man, throw a bit of salt in the path where he will walk. Hyatt references another simply technique that entails sewing a pinch of salt in your lover’s pocket (make sure he doesn’t know) in order to prevent him from visiting another woman.
