Middle Earth Magic: Inspired Ideas and Seasonal Spells for Your Enchanted Life

I grew up on a farm in West Virginia and learned much about herbs, trees, animals, gardening, foraging  and so much about nature. I incorporate this wisdom I learned from elders in my family into my spellwork. When I finally left the farm, I majored in Medieval Studies, my attempt to emulate my idol, J.R.R. Tolkien. All these influences led me to my own blended brew which I call "middle earth magic," containing a mix of the modern and the time-tested "old ways."

Oral Fixations

Food can be foreplay, a wonderful prelude to a night of love. I recommend consuming these aphrodisiacs for your pleasure:

• Almonds, or erotically shaped marzipan

• Arugula, also called “rocket”

• Avocado, referred to by the ancient Aztecs as the “testicle tree”

• Bananas and banana flowers

• Chocolate, quite rightly called “the food of the gods”

• Honey, as the term “honeymoon” came from a bee-sweetened drink served to newlyweds

• Nutmeg, the traditional aphrodisiac for Chinese women; eat enough and you will hallucinate

• Oysters, prized by the Romans for both their effect and their resemblance to female genitalia

• Strawberries, often mentioned in erotic literature

• Coffee, a stimulant for many things

• Garlic, the heat to light the flame of desire

• Figs, another symbol of ultimate femininity; just eating one is a turn-on

• Vanilla, captivating for both its scent and its flavor
