Goddess of Love Oil can be worn on the body, dropped in the bath, anointed on jewelry or sacred objects, rubbed on an altar or dabbed in the heel of your shoes. Rub some on your hands prior to meeting new people or before going out on a date. Dab some on your business cards or put a few drops on a cotton ball and carry it in your purse. Anoint some along your heart chakra, neck and wrists. Rub some on your front door to draw love into your home. Place a few drops on some dried rose petals and orange rinds and make your own potpourri. Dab some in your drawer that holds your most intimate items. Mix some with a bit of olive oil and use as a massage oil.
For a powerful love candle ritual, get six white tea lights and a pink candle. Anoint each tea light with a bit of Goddess of Love Oil. On the top of the tea light, gently apply the oil in a clockwise direction. Create a circle with these lights. On your pink candle, carve your name and anything you wish to achieve. Anoint the candle with the oil by rubbing your hands with a touch of oil. Then, draw the oil up the candle from bottom to top. Place this candle in the center of the circle. When you are ready, light the tea lights first and then the pink candle. Say a prayer and visualize! I also recommend reading the Song of Solomon.
