Give auntie some sugar

When I was a kid and some long lost relative came to visit, they often said something horrifying like, “Come on, Malcolm, give Auntie some sugar.”

Truth be told, I still get the willies thinking about it.

However, if auntie had been a conjure woman, she could have made me run over and hug her without having to say a word. How?

A Sweetening Spell

brerrabbitThese make people like you, feel better about you, or appreciate you in some way whether it’s a relative, a co-worker or even a judge.

(In general, sweetening may help you attract a lover, but for true industrial-strength romance, check out these love spells.)

You’ll need:

  1. Something Sweet (sugar, honey, Karo Syrup, molasses)
  2. An empty jar (baby food jars work well)
  3. A piece of brown paper (a grocery sack is fine)
  4. Appropriate candles (see below)
If you want hot romance, well that usually requires something stronger.
If you want hot romance, well that usually requires something stronger.

What to do:

  1. Write the name of your auntie, co-worker, judge of whoever in the middle of the paper three times with a pencil.
  2. Now, turn the paper side ways and write your name across those three names three times. (Some say four times). Be thinking about what you’re wanting.
  3. Fold up the paper and push it down into the jar of sweetener. Say aloud you intention: “I want Bob to like me.”
  4. Close the jar and put it on a shelf, desk, workbench, or nightstand where it won’t be disturbed.
  5. To ramp up the power, burn candles next to the jar twice a week, white for general esteem, brown for court cases, red for passionate love and pink for friendship. (optional)

Now, when you need a friend or a favor or “a little sugar,” you won’t have to ask for it.

There are many variations of this trick, and you can find them on line by using search terms like sweetening spell and conjure honey jar. You’ll find a few sites like this one and this one.

So, here you have a bit of friendly white magic!
