Cowrie Shells are used in sympathetic magic to represent female genitalia and can be used by women to enhance sexual attraction or used by those who wish to affect a woman’s sexuality in some way. Golden Ring Cowrie Shells can also be used effectively in spells for commitment or marriage or for spells where financial support or generosity is desired.
Suggested magical uses for Golden Ring Cowrie Shells:
Connect the Cowrie Shell to a particular person (either you or another) by dressing it the woman’s period blood, vaginal fluid or pubic hair. You may also choose to wrap it in a piece of her used underwear.
Soften a beeswax candle by placing under a strong light (sun or lamp) and press Cowrie shells into it to do some strong magic for sexual seduction. If you’re using a figural candle, you can press a Cowrie Shell with the open side out in the vagina area to increase the sexual power of the spell.
Place 7 Cowrie shells around a Fertility candle dressed Blessing oil to invite fertility.
Carry a red flannel mojo bag with a Cowrie, a Queen Elizabeth Root (if you’re a woman) or a John the Conqueror Root (if you’re a man), a pinch of Patchouli, a pinch of Ginger and a pinch of Sandalwood to invite in a hot and spicy relationship.
For in-depth information on how to use this and other herbs and roots magically, I recommend Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic and Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, both of which can be found in our Books section.
