Vanilla seeds come from an orchid in the Vanilla family. The seeds are scraped from the vanilla pod to use as flavouring and the pod can then be saved and used to flavour alcohol (gin and rum work well, just drop the pod into the bottle) or popped into your sugar box to flavour the sugar.
Vanilla can be used to increase love and happiness whether it is in your cooking or spell work. The vanilla beans can also help to increase your spirituality and connection to a higher level of consciousness.
The scent of vanilla can be used for any love and sex magic to attract a lover or to increase levels of passion. It can also be used to spark your imagination and creativity.
