Attract Love Into Your Life
Flowers, plants and herbs have been used for centuries to inspire love and passion. This ancient wisdom can still be used today to bring you the relationship you’ve been waiting for.
By utilizing the wisdom of plants and working with the energies of the earth, you will align yourself with spiritual forces that can shift the flow of your life in a direction that is more attuned to love.
The powers of the flowers can be utilized in a multitude of ways. Choose one or all of the flowers below and then read on to learn how to activate their powers.
The queen of love, this gorgeous bloom is flower royalty. Heals, opens and purifies the heart. Attracts self-love and love from others.
Charming and seductive, jasmine is the flower flirt. She’ll warm you up and bring your hidden love powers to light.
The exotic sensuality of ylang ylang can melt almost anyone’s resolve. Use this sexy flower with care, for when you really want results.
Rich, deep and creamy, the gardenia has a subtle but warm sexiness that can help to ease you into new love connections.
Straightforward and pure, the carnation evokes a gentle love. Use when you want to move into something new slowly -- but surely.
Activating the Powers
Adorning yourself with love-attracting flowers will activate their energy and help you to shift your attention to a more receptive mindset. Put your flowers of choice in your hair or buttonhole, make a wreath or wear a lei. For a more concentrated effect, wear the flowers as perfume. Use high-quality, pure essential oils for maximum benefit.
Buy or grow your flowers of choice and place regular bouquets in prominent spots in your house. If you use Feng Shui, make sure to amplify your relationship corner with fresh blooms. Just remember to remove them as soon as they start to droop.
Use the flowers to make magical baths. Add them fresh, dried or in the form of essential oils. Soak in a bath with the flowers while you envision the relationship or person you want to attract. To amplify the power of a love bath, add a little honey, which is the combined essence of thousands of flowers.
Remember the movie Like Water for Chocolate? The results of one rose-infused dish invoked overwhelming feelings of love and passion. While you may not get the same instantaneous results, it’s definitely worth it to experiment with using flowers in your food. Try flower-infused salads, desserts and teas. Make just for yourself -- or serve to a very important guest!
