Well, i don't really know how they work to create the feeling itself, but i do know that oxytocin and other hormones for example work together during the "Biological Stages of Love" to make your heart beat faster, make you lose your appetite, relax your muscles, enhances creative thought and imagination and creates sensation of pleasure, etc. in presence or thought of someone.
Love is thought to be an extra biological process to ensure the continuity of the species, like sexual arousal.
There are hormones for every other feeling, not just love, and there are theories about the possible biological purpose of each of them.
Hope it was helpful.
