Please check out my friend Pat Duran's recipe for hot spiced cider. You can make them and put in All Hallow's Eve baskets
It will warm those little goblins right up
You’ll need a small fire, outside if possible. A super way to have a
small fire outdoors is a small chimney. If not a hot cauldron or incense
burner will do just fine.
You’ll need about one half cup Cloves. Using your mortar and pestle crush up the Cloves and place them in a small dish.
Take one half cup Elm leaves and chop them up or use one teaspoon Slippery Elm (herb). Place it in a second dish.
Now you will also need;
13, black pepper corns placed in a 3rd dish.
1, 3 inch by 3 inch square cut black cloth.
13, inches of white ribbon.
One, Black Candle
Place everything in front of you and light a black candle.
Toss a fist full of ground Cloves into the fire or cauldron.
As the smoke start to rise into the air begin this chant;
Let the one’s who gossip find,
In their words I do bind.
Nothing spoke shall be heard,
no scene is made by their words.
All the pain that they do send,
returns upon them in the wind.
Repeat the chant as you place all the remaining herbs into the center
of the cloth and fold the cloth in onto its self and rap the ribbon
tightly around the cloth and tie a tight knot.
If possible light the tied cloth by the black candle and toss into the flame of the fire.
If this is not possible drop 13 drops of the black candle wax onto the knot of the bag and bury it outside under a dark moon.
You may find you are surprised how quickly all the gossip stops.

THE DREAM SPELL This spell is to cause you to dream of the face of the man (or woman) you will spend your life with. You may or may not know this person currently. Do not be surprised if it is not the person you expected. If your romantic notions happen to blossom in midsummer, you might consider the following:
On July 22, St. Magdalene's Eve, prepare a bath. In the water sprinkle lavender and rose petals and as in the Self-Blessing, you must envision yourself cleansing not only your body, but also your spirit. After you bathe, prepare for bed and say these words:
Mother of All, Habondia, look favorably upon my quest, Bring to me a vision true, my lover's face at your behest.
After you have said the incantation, place a sachet under your pillow with lavender and hypericum (St. John's Wort). Before you go to sleep pour a small glass of wine and just as you do in the full moon rite, say these words: To You Mother, I pour this libation (pour a few drops on the floor), and drink this toast. Drink the rest of the wine. Use your consecrated chalice or consecrate a new cup just for this purpose. Lay your head down and dream of your true love--it may not be who you thought!
