Love Potion Ideas and Free Printable Labels

So many couples I know just aren't into celebrating Valentine's Day. I know lots of people consider it a consumer holiday... with an expectation to buy candy and over-priced flowers but I just love the idea of celebrating LOVE.

So for Valentine's day why not make up a little something fun for you and your partner... just yourself... anyone else that you love... or someone you know who'd like to find a little love.

I'm talking Love Potions-

They could be bath salts, placed into a small glass bottle.

Here's a basic recipe I found online, but there are tons of them out there. I used Lavender because I think it's it's relaxing and romantic.

I made mine unique by adding some hearts cut out of lavender and honey soap. I simply cut a slice off the end of the bar and cut it into a heart shape. I liked the idea of these little hearts being visible in the bottle then dissolving away in the warm bath water.

You could also make linen spray. Small travel sized spray bottles are the perfect size.

Here's the recipe I used.. but I cut back on the essential oil called for and just used a few drops. Again I made mine lavender. Spray this on your sheets and pillow cases for a nice, subtle, romantic scent.

Or some how about some tea. Again I used a small glass bottle with a cork top.

I used loose herbs but you could also use a tea bag and replace the original tag with a love potion label.

I've made two sets of these labels, purple as shown in my post, or pink.

Both are available for Free.

Just click on the links at the bottom of this post and print or download.

I included a label for all three things I made here as well as a generic "Love Potion" label in case you want to label something else, here are a few more ideas:
  • Massage Oil
  • Bubble Bath
  • Sugar or Powdered Coffee Creamer
  • Serve cocktails for a party in little bottles with labels. (Wouldn't that be so cute!)

Just be sure if you're using the generic label that the recipient knows the real contents and whether or not it's edible. You could write the contents or directions of use on the back.

  1. Meg, this is such a great idea. Thank you so much for sharing the labels with us!


  2. I think ice cream topping such as butterscotch or chocolate sauce could have love potion labels as well. Or a jar of truffles... Mmm so many possibilities!

  3. Sarah that's a great idea. Thanks for leaving a comment!

  4. Meg,
    Awesome! just facebook/tweeted this!

    Aren't you on twitter? i didn't see a twitter id to @reply you on the tweet :)

  5. Thanks for tweeting Dot! No I'm not on Twitter... lol it's hard enough for me to keep up with the blogging and email. : )

  6. You can likewise douse the mark off first colouring pages (which would expel the back name as well) or scratch it off delicately with an art cut.
