One of the most common types of spells used by practitioners of magic is the spell of love. While the Wiccan Rede forbids direct manipulation of another person (ie, you can not force them to behave in a way they do not want on your own), love spells can still be used to manually open up the loving emotions that await you in the world and they make it more likely that energy will be returned via karma.
There are different methods of conducting a love spell. It can be an elaborate affair, involving a photo and candles or as simplistic as making an amulet or talisman to carry with you. But there are certain herbs and plants that will make any love spell more effective.
Acacia: Use the bark and twigs for awakening love and enhancement of physical force.
African violet: Harmony and love are released from your heart when it burns.
Aster: A love herb that is excellent in amulets in combination with other ingredients.
Balm of Gilead: Amulets and potions work more efficiently when laced with these outbreaks.
Basil: A magical love herb great for spell work and divination.
Bay: Infuse a love potion with these burnt leaves.
Pumpkin: other than drive your cat, this herb can be used in spells of love (and luck) or in amulets for fertility.
Cinnamon: A known aphrodisiac, this excels in spells of sexuality and passion and deepens any meditations on love.
Cowslip: Cheaper than a haircut, this can be used in spells calling for more physical beauty and attractiveness.

Daisy: This flower is used during divination work to prophesize the future of love.
Damiana: An aphrodisiac, used in spells of sexuality and love.
