Sex is a powerful thing; some may even call it magic. So if you’re looking to spice things up in the bedroom, what better way than to whip up some mystical DIYs? Semra Haksever, author of Love Spells (£10), can attest to this. She knows all there is to know about crystals that might aid healing and spiritual baths that cleanse. Following the success of her first book, Everyday Magic: Rituals, Spells and Potions to Live Your Best Life, she is now honing in on the one thing that keeps us all ticking — love — with a ploy to make it even more potent.
Semra’s concoctions promise to brew up “a new world of eroticism” as they set the mood, help to carry away inhibitions, and fill the remaining space “an abundance of confidence to relax.”
We have access to three recipes from the book which will get you in the mood for the best sex ever. If you’re still reeling from that sexy Harry Potter photo shoot or you’ve been meaning to christen your mortar and pestle, keep reading for all you need to DIY a steamy seduction potion, a mood-setting sex smoke, and lover’s massage oil.
