Roses have long been used in love mixtures and wearing a chaplet of roses when performing love spells (make sure you take out the thorns first), or a single rose in a vase on the altar, are examples of powerful love-magic aids.
Rose water distilled from the petals is added to love baths.
Rose hips (the fruit of the rose) are strung and worn as love-attracting beads. A tea of rose buds drunk before sleep induces powerfully prophetic dreaming.
To discover their romantic future, women used to take three green rose leaves and name each for one of their lovers. The one that stayed green the longest answer the question of "which one?"
Rose petals and hips are also used in healing spells and mixtures, and a rose water saturated cloth laid to the temples is said to relieve a headache.
Roses planted in the garden attract fairies, and they apparently grow best when stolen.
