3 love spell examples that include cinnamon

These are just a few of the many examples of how you can use cinnamon in love spells.  Just because I give you a set of instructions does not mean you need to follow them to a tee.  Spells are personal.  If it doesn’t feel right or fit your needs, make the spell your own.

 Cinnamon love potion 

This potion is believed to evoke feelings of love and desire.  Creating a cinnamon love potion to evoke feelings of love and desire involves a combination of ingredients known for their romantic and sensual properties.

Materials Needed:

  • 2 cups of spring water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks (for warmth and attraction)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (to sweeten the potion and symbolize the sweetness of love)
  • A handful of dried rose petals (symbolizing love and passion)
  • A few drops of vanilla extract (for its sensual and inviting aroma)
  • A small piece of pink quartz (optional, for adding loving energy)


  1. Purify Your Space: Begin by cleansing your space. You can do this by burning sage or simply ensuring your space is peaceful and clean.

  2. Set Your Intention: Before starting, focus on your intention for the potion – whether it’s to attract new love or to deepen an existing relationship. Intentions should be clear and positive.

  3. Boil Water: In a pot, bring the spring water to a gentle boil.

  4. Add Cinnamon and Rose Petals: Once the water is boiling, add the cinnamon sticks and dried rose petals. Cinnamon is used for its properties of attraction and warmth, while rose petals symbolize love and passion.

  5. Simmer: Reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes. As it simmers, visualize your intention, imagining the potion absorbing your desires for love and affection.

  6. Add Honey and Vanilla: Turn off the heat. Stir in the honey and a few drops of vanilla extract while the potion is still warm. The honey sweetens your intention, and the vanilla enhances sensuality.

  7. Infuse with Pink Quartz: If you’re using pink quartz, place it near or in the potion as it cools. This step is optional but can add an element of emotional healing and love attraction.

  8. Strain and Store: Strain the potion to remove the solids, pouring the liquid into a bottle or jar.

  9. Consecrate Your Potion: Some may choose to say a small blessing or affirmation over the potion to further set their intentions.

  10. Usage: You can drink a small amount of the potion, share it with a consenting partner, or use it as an offering in a love ritual.

 Candle love ritual using cinnamon and magick 

Creating a candle love ritual using cinnamon and magickal intentions can be a meaningful way to focus your energies on love and relationships.  The power of this ritual lies in your intentions and the symbolic actions you perform.

Materials Needed:

  • One red or pink candle (red for passionate love, pink for romantic and nurturing love)
  • Cinnamon essential oil
  • A small piece of paper and a pen
  • Dried rose petals (symbolizing love and affection)
  • Cinnamon sticks (for attraction and warmth)
  • Matches or a lighter
  • A fireproof dish or candle holder
  • Optional: crystals like rose quartz (for love energy) or moonstone (for emotional balance)


  1. Prepare Your Space: Cleanse your ritual space. You might want to do this by burning sage, using incense, or simply ensuring the area is tidy and peaceful.
  2. Set Your Intention: Write down your intention for love on the piece of paper. This could be attracting new love, strengthening an existing relationship, or opening your heart to love opportunities. Be clear and specific.
  3. Prepare the Candle: Anoint the candle with cinnamon essential oil. As you do so, focus on your intention, visualizing your desired outcome. Imagine the oil as a conduit for your wishes, embedding your intentions into the candle.
  4. Arrange Your Materials: Place the candle in its holder on a safe surface. Surround it with cinnamon sticks, dried rose petals, and optionally, your chosen crystals.
  5. Light the Candle: Light the candle with your matches or lighter. As the flame ignites, visualize your intention being released into the universe. Focus on the flame and imagine it drawing love into your life.
  6. Recite an Affirmation or Chant: You might want to say a love affirmation, chant, or simply speak your intentions aloud. For example,I open my heart to love, and I attract the right love into my life.
  7. Burn the Intention Paper: Safely burn the piece of paper with your written intention in the fireproof dish. This symbolizes releasing your intention into the universe. Be cautious and ensure safety while doing this.
  8. Meditate and Visualize: Spend some time meditating by the candle. Visualize your life filled with the love you desire. Feel the emotions that come with this love.
  9. Closing the Ritual: Once you feel your intentions have been fully focused upon, you can either let the candle burn out safely or extinguish it with the intent to relight it each day until it burns completely. If you choose to extinguish it, do so without blowing it out, as this can scatter your intentions. Instead, use a snuffer or wet your fingers and pinch the flame.
  10. Ground Yourself: After the ritual, make sure to ground yourself. This can be done by eating something, taking a walk, or engaging in a mundane activity.

 Create a cinnamon and sugar love jar 

Creating a cinnamon and sugar love jar is a charming and symbolic way to focus your intentions on attracting love or enhancing the romance in your life. This ritual falls under the umbrella of folk magick and should be approached as a personal, symbolic practice.

Materials Needed:

  • A small, clean glass jar with a lid
  • Ground cinnamon (for attraction and warmth in love)
  • White or brown sugar (to sweeten your love life)
  • Dried rose petals (symbolizing love and affection)
  • Pink or red ribbon (colors of love and passion)
  • Paper and a pen
  • Optional: Small crystals like rose quartz (for love) or garnet (for passion)
  • Optional: Other love-drawing herbs like lavender, jasmine, or vanilla bean


  1. Cleanse Your Space: Begin by cleansing your space and materials. You can do this with sage, incense, or simply by setting a clear, peaceful intention.

  2. Set Your Intention: Write your love intention or wish on the piece of paper. Be specific and positive. It could be something like attracting a new love, enhancing the romance in your current relationship, or increasing self-love.

  3. Prepare the Jar: Layer the ingredients in the jar. Start with a base of sugar, then add cinnamon. As you do this, focus on your intention, visualizing your love wish coming to life.

  4. Add Rose Petals and Other Ingredients: Sprinkle the dried rose petals over the cinnamon and sugar layers. If you’re using other herbs or crystals, add them now. Each ingredient should be added with a focus on its symbolic meaning and your intention.

  5. Seal the Jar: Once all your ingredients are in, close the jar tightly.

  6. Wrap the Jar: Tie the pink or red ribbon around the jar, making a bow. This act is symbolic of sealing your intention with love and passion.

  7. Activate the Jar: Hold the jar in your hands and close your eyes. Visualize your love intentions manifesting. You might imagine being surrounded by love, meeting a new romantic partner, or feeling a deepened sense of love in your existing relationship.

  8. Place the Jar: Keep the jar in a special place in your home, such as your bedroom or on a personal altar. Some prefer to keep it hidden, while others like it to be in a visible place as a constant reminder of their intentions.

  9. Maintain the Jar: Periodically, you might want to hold the jar, re-focus on your intention, and perhaps even add more ingredients if you feel called to do so.

  10. Closing the Ritual: When you feel your intentions have been fulfilled, or if you wish to set new intentions, you can dismantle the jar. Thank the universe for the love in your life and dispose of the contents in a respectful way, like burying them or scattering them in nature.
