So, what does it mean, you ask? LOVAGE ROOT, known in the South as Bo' HOG ROOT, is widely reputed to Aid Love and Sexuality. To draw a new lover or increase passion in someone special, folks carry a red flannel bag in which they place 3 slices of Bo' HOG ROOT, some Sampson Snake Root, and a John the Conquerer Root, Queen Elizabeth Root if female. A red 7-day candle dressed with Attraction Oil and crumbled LOVAGE is also said to draw a new lover. Other people tell us that they boil LOVAGE in a pan of water to make a tea. For 9 days, they bathe in this tea before dawn, carry the wash basin to a crossroads, call the name of the one they Love, and throw the bath-water over their left shoulder toward the Sunrise. We make no special claims for LOVAGE ROOT. . . . but, you might find our groove infectious.
