There is no scientific basis for believing that love spells work. There are certainly websites and magic stores that sell spells and potions and make claims as to their efficacy, but the likelihood is that they will not work.

This, in turn, might make him more attractive to others, but such confidence is created in the person's mind, and not by any combination of herbs or magic words.Learn More
