When all attempts to lure a reluctant lover have failed, try a homemade love potion. A love potion's power is in the act of making it. While brewing the ingredients and reciting the incantation, focus your energy on your goal. Beware that while potions can be effective, they can also teach you to be careful what you wish for. You may discover that you needed a potion to bring your love to you because you aren't a good match after all.

Pour the rainwater over the ingredients in the saucepan. If there is not enough rainwater to cover the ingredients, supplement the rainwater with spring water.

Cook slowly over low heat. Once the ingredients start to simmer, stir them while reciting aloud the ancient love poem, Song of Solomon (see Resources section).

Dab the potion onto your pulse points everyday during next week. If the object of your desire is near, the potion will draw them to you.

Tip

Do not re-brew the potion if your lover has not come to you within a week. The potion may take time to work and doubling the dosage may leave you with a stalker on your hands.
