Magnetic Sand (Iron Powder) is used for attracting what you desire and is often used in conjunction with Lodestones.
Magnetic Sand is a versatile magical tool. Traditionally, it is used to "feed" a lodestone - sprinkle a pinch of Magnetic Sand on your Lodestone to give it power or thank it for bringing in what you desire.
Magnetic Sand that has been charged by sticking to a lodestone can be pulled off then be used to bring the magnetic magic elsewhere.
Some ideas for magical uses:
Feed your Lodestones by sprinkling a pinch of Magnetic Sand on them.
Pinch off some charged Magnetic Sand and add it to a mojo bag to attract love, prosperity or gambling luck.
Sprinkle a pinch of charged Magnetic Sand on a Money Draw or Attraction candle to amplify its power.
Add a pinch of charged Magnetic Sand to any spiritual oil if you'd like to increase its powers of attraction.
