Removing Negative Outside Influences From Your Relationship

My husband, bless his heart is a magnet for damsels in destress. I don't know how he finds them but women will pour their hearts out to him in the line at Walmart. THEN this man will offer to change their tires in the parking lot, or call them a tow truck, and pay for it! It's crazy how they always find him. This is the reason that I fell in love with him and he has never given me a reason to worry. So I let him do his thing. Once in a while some of these women have misunderstood his generosity for something a bit more. 
These cookies are perfect for removing a negative outside influence or in my case my husbands unwanted admirer. 
Now before you whip up a batch of these cookies this needs a warning. 
No healthy happy relationship includes a hostage. 
You should never ever ever EVER cast anything that interferes with anyones free will. EVER! If Brian had a wondering eye no cookie would keep him home even if it was my best chocolate chip. (His Favorite) 
What makes these cookies work. Lime's magical properties are for purifying, cleansing and protecting. Basil's magical properties are for love, protecting, and banishing. So these would work for banishing any negative energy, like an unwanted admirer, stress from work, tension caused by outside meddling. 
I grew up in a bakery. I actually met Brian when I was delivering our left over brownies for the day to the Park Rangers at the State Park in our town. Which is what I suspect made him fall in love with me. 
As I started pulling out the ingredients for these cookies, Brian was having a fit. The whole time he kept crying for real cookies. 
My 20 year old came home from work and said the house smelled AMAZING. 
I understand these sound interesting to say the least but they are very good. I would never steer you wrong.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • teaspoon vanilla
  • zest from one lime
  • 1tbsp lime juice
  • 3 tbsp very finely chopped fresh basil leaves OR 3 tsp of dried basil
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line the cookie sheets with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a stand mixer (or hand-held mixer) cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  3. Mix in the egg, vanilla, zest, and basil. Mix together until fully combined.
  4. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Then mix into the butter mixture until combined.
  5. Scoop cookie dough using a 2" cookie scoop. Place dough balls about 1 inch apart on the cookie sheets.

  6. Bake 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of your cookies/oven.
  7. Allow to cool on a cooling rack for a few minutes

As with all spells:

Cleanse your space with sage or palo-santos. 

close your eyes and allow nothing but love to fill your heart, feeling it grow and grow until it fills your whole body and burst out filling your whole kitchen with loving white light. 

Spell for Removing Negative Outside Influences From Your Relationship. 

With a splash of lime 

Negative energy may not stay

I release it and send it away

With a sprinkle of basil

Negative energy I banish thee

Away from us you flee

So mote it be! 


My kids loved this recipe and I also loved it. I think Brian was just sad they weren't his favorite chocolate chip ones. I guess I know what I will be making tomorrow. Maybe I can include an aphrodisiac so I can have a little fun.
