Powerfully spicy, ginger essential oil is useful in sexuality, love, courage, and money attracting blends. Eating ginger before performing spells will lend them power, since you have been “heated up” by the ginger; this is especially true of love spells. ginger is also used in success spells, or to ensure the success of a magical operation. In the pacific the dobu islanders make much use of ginger in their magic. They chew it and spit it at the “seat” of an illness to cure it, and also spit chewed ginger at an oncoming storm, while at sea, to halt it.
