A smell that kind of reminds me of curry leaves but is closely attributed to its celery like taste. Lovage root as the name may suggest can be used to attract love partners, but is often directed to be worn...not sure how attractive the smell of lovage is though! You can add (in a sachet) to flavour your soups and stews...which means you can add a magical twist to your cooking. The Greek and Roman civilizations were known for using lovage herbs in healing practices as well as in culinary adaptations. Much of its use was also as an anti-inflammatory, skin conditioner, menstrual support, gastric balm and much more. Lovage is probably best known as a digestive aid, relieving flatulence and other stomach discomfort.
Lovage finds it’s use in all magical love workings, add to your bath sachets prior to going out to meet new people to make you more attractive and love inspiring. Carry it in a sachet or charm on the person to attract love. Place the root in a mesh bag and hold under the tap water when running a bath for cleansing, and for beauty and attractiveness to the opposite sex - add rose petals to the bath to enhance this property.
Make a Tea of Lovage leaves or root and drink just before bedtime for psychic dreams, or to make the mind alert before business meetings or school.
Add the dried and powdered root to cleansing and purification baths to release negativity. Hang sachets of lovage above your doors and windows to keep negative energies out.
Drink a tea prior to going to bed to assist with prophetic dreams and raise psychic energy. Also can be used in purification baths for psychic cleansing.
Add an infusion of lovage to the bath immediately prior to attending court to help bring victory.
One of the herbs found in the Oseberg burial, Lovage is much liked by Lofn, the handmaiden of Frigga who aids warring lovers in reconciliation. It can be used in a soup or tea to help arguing, angry partners in mediation and processing their problems. To call on Lofn while making an offering of lovage can be a last-ditch effort before a divorce.
