You may wish to:
1. Keep a stock of some of these herbs in your kitchen for magickal use.
2. Cook with them! Their magic can be transferred to your loved ones this way without them ever knowing.
3. Make magickal sachets or pouches using a combination of herbs you feel you need right now.
4. Grow your own! If you've produced it yourself and organically it will be even more infused with your loving intention.

Magickal Properties of Common Herbs

Arrowroot - For attracting good fortune and opportunities

Lemon balm - Increases attraction, can be used as a love charm, also attracts success and helps to heal nervous disorders

Barley - For love, healing or protection

Basil - For travel protection, attracting wealth (especially if you have a basil plant by or near your door), invoking dragon energy, soothing tempers and creating harmony

Bay leaf/Laurel leaf - For strength, for boosting psychic or divinatory powers or clairvoyance, also attracts love and romance; to make a wish and burn a bay leaf adds power to the wish - try it when cooking with it!

Borage - For courage, and lifting spirits no matter what the situation

Cardamom - For encouraging lust/attraction/desire, and for love - use it wisely (and probably only on your dp!!)

Chamomile - For attracting money, to aid sleep or reduce stress or anxiety when drunk in a tea; sprinkle around your property to remove negative energy

Clove - For love and attraction when worn or carried; can relieve toothache when chewed; for healing, protection and boosting the immune system when eaten

Coriander - Use in sachets/pouches as a love charm; when eaten, for attracting romance, for good health and healing, for protection of gardeners, and for promoting peace and harmony between individuals

Echinacea - For strengthening and boosting the immune system

Fennel - For healing and purification

Garlic - Well-known for use in exorcism and protection against spirits (and vampires if you believe in them - cf. energy vampires); also for healing, and can be used as an anti-theft charm as well as an aphrodisiac

Ginger - For love, money, success and power

Ginseng - For love and beauty; a good tea to take when making a wish to boost the power of the wish

Horseradish - For purification and warming

Licorice - For love and fidelity

Lovage - For increasing the depth and harmony in a love relationship, and also for attracting love and romance and healing for the broken-hearted

Maple/Maple syrup (yum!) - For lust for life, longevity and money luck

Mustard - For fertility, protection and boosting your mental powers

Nettle - Another herb which can be used for exorcism or protection from spirits; also for healing

Olive - Brings peace into the household or between individuals, also a potent lust/desire attractor, and hence is also good for boosting fertility

Parsley - For love, fidelity and consistency, protection and purification

Pepper - Protection from spirits and negative influence

Peppermint - Aids sleep and boosts psychic powers

Rosemary - For boosting mental powers, psychic powers and spiritual purification; also aids sleep and provides a boost of youthful energy

Rye - For love and fertility

Saffron - This is a very magical ingredient - for love, desire/attraction, healing, happiness, for developing psychic powers, and for "weather wishing" - when you want it to be fine, or to rain, or to call up the winds and storm energy

Sage - For immortality or longevity; you can also burn dried sage in your environment to transmute any negative energy. It gives a boost of protection and cultivates wisdom when eaten. Also use it when you have an important wish to make! Another very magical herb!

Salt - For purification; you can sprinkle a small mound of salt in the corners of your property for protection against negative energies (or use a bowl!)

Sesame/Sesame Seeds - To promote money luck or sex luck!

Spearmint - For healing, love and to boost mental powers

Sunflower/Sunflower Seeds - For fertlity, health, wisdom and also make a wish when you eat, use or plant them

Tea - For attracting riches, a financial boost, and also is calming when used in a crisis because it lends courage, strength and fortitude

Thyme - Aids healing, health and sleep, boosts psychic powers, can be used for love, purification and courage - hang bundles of dried thyme in your kitchen window to attract faeries or invoke faery magick but be warned, they are mischievous!

Turmeric - For purification

Vanilla - Can be used for love/desire/sexual attraction and an aphrodisiac, but can also be used for boosting mental powers and general mood lifting

As you can see here, many herbs have healing properties, and can attract love, empowerment, spiritual development and general luck. Many of them can attract specific money luck. Herbs are known to aid digestion, too, and some ingredients, such as garlic and echinacea, are known as nature's antibiotics and boost our immune system. Using herbs or combinations of herbs in cooking attracts these fortunes to you and your loved ones, and if ever in doubt, you can at least always add a sprinkling of mixed herbs to your cooking!
