Magnolias are use in conjure work to promote a happy, faithful marriage. The leaves are placed under the mattress. The flowers can be picked and set in water overnight. Just make sure that you shake off any beetles that may be in the flower before placing it in water. The water is then sprinkled around the house at dawn to promote a happy marriage.

The Magnolias are in full bloom. Saw so many trees today just covered in blooms. For those who don't know what I'm referencing, it's Magnolia grandiflora, a.k.a. Southern Magnolia. It's an evergreen tree that grows here in the South. Each year in the Summer it produces these humongous white flowers that have an intoxicating scent. They are very beautiful and they are also my grandmother's favorite flower. Anyway, a bit of trivia is that Magnolias evolved far before bees did. Because of this, their flowers are designed for beetles to pollinate. Isn't that interesting?
