Lore: The main uses concern love and beauty, hence, one assumes, the name ”Lovage.
Lovage’s name comes from its inclusion in old recipes for love potions, which also
accounts for this feathery plant’s other common name, ”love parsley.” The Latin word
”Levare” means to ease or soothe. Some say the English name ”Lovage” directly
originates from Middle English ”loveache”. I’m inclined toward the more technical
explanation: Lovage goes back to a Latin word meaning ”Ligurian”, because the
herb flourished in ancient times in Liguria, a region that includes the Italian Riviera.
The name was garbled enough beyond recognition by the time it entered English in
Chaucer’s day, as ”love-ache”, or ”love parsley”. Nineteenth-
Century Shaker religious communities grew and sold Lovage as part of their commercial enterprises.
It is mainly a beauty and love herb, but is also associated with psychic sleep, energy, and purification.
Make a Tea of Lovage leaves or root and drink just before bedtime for psychic dreams,
or drink a tea to make the mind alert before business meetings or school.
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.
Add the dried and powdered root to cleansing and purification baths to release negativity.
Carry to attract love and the attention of the opposite sex.

Shamanic Magical Uses:
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.
When doing divination about relationship problems, a stalk of lovage can be
brushed over the area of the reading before laying stones or cards, or powdered
dried lovage sprinkled on it.
This plant also acted as a sentry of the home; if planted in front of the house lovage
was supposed to keep off all evil forces, such as plague, snakes, insects etc.
Given the plants medical and magical powers, it is no wonder that lovage was an
extremely important herb during the Middle Ages. Therefore a garden without this
plant would be very rare.
The roots and seeds of lovage are said to be used for erotic love alchemy.
Medicinally, lovage has been used for digestive complaints, skin problems, fever
and menstrual difficulties; according to Wicca literature, lovage is used to attract
a lover who accepts a person as they are, with no hidden intentions.

The Conjured Saint Ritually-Blessed Oils are crafted to enhance and promote ritual-working, spell-working and personal intent. These spiritual recipes can be used to anoint the body or tools, burned in an oil burner, or added to ritual baths.
Our sacred oils are hand-blended and bottled into “metaphysical battery-packs” of concentrated magick. Each oil contains its own spiritual life force (the soul), that is harnessed by harvesting Mother Nature’s blessings. Plants are alive, and everything that lives has a soul like essences. Roots, seeds, leaves, and petals all contain a specific metaphysical signature that is captured and magickally-infused into the oil that corresponds to each botanical’s intent and purpose.
The botanicals used are specifically selected by The Conjured Saint from our sacred, blessed garden and then hand-blended with blessed crystals to create powerful, divine oils. Crystals, like botanicals, are living beings, charged with a universal life-force. Harnessing this energizing life force into the oils allows them to continually recharge themselves.
The Conjured Saint oils are designed to endure through the use of Vitamin E and premium-selected grapeseed oil, which preserve their sacred shelf life. Blessed under the moon during the appropriate moon cycle, holy days of religious days of obligation, and according to the correct energy of the days of the week, each oil is its own life-force in a vial, ready to be used to enhance spell-work. The Conjured Saint oils are adaptable to any spiritual practice.
Botanically-infused on the appropriate days to enhance their properties, the oils are then blessed on a sacred altar under the watchful eyes of the saints and steeped with the powerful crystals that harvest the energy and vitality of Earth’s divine magick. The inclusion of crystals in The Conjured Saint’s recipes provides an energy-generating quality that is unique to The Conjured Saint spells and magickal products.
The ritual blending and blessing of the oils is a traditional ceremony carried out amidst powerful magickal, holy, and religious relics, an altar of cascading crystal waterfalls, the elements of fire, water, earth, and air, and otherworldly intervention that completes the process. The Conjured Saint leaves no stone unturned when formulating our oils, so that you may reap the benefits of divine Earth magick.
