For this spell, I admit it...I stole it.  It's just so cool!
Thanks to James and Jo Dixon!
ps, I don't want to step on toes, so say the word and it's off the site!


A "happy box" can be made for any occasion, and they make such a beautiful and personal gift for a friend who needs an emotional lift!
"First, find a special box, or container. It should be something very pleasing to you.
Into a bowl, place one teaspoon of pure Rose essence, and mix thoroughly with 2 tablespoons of Orris root powder.  After it is mixed well, add 1 tablespoon of benzoin gum.  Now add 1/2 cup of rose buds, 2 tablespoons of lavender blossoms, 1 tablespoon of blue malva flowers, a 1/2 cup spearmint leaves, 3 whole cloves, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and mix thouroughly.
Place the mixture in the box.  On top of the herbs, place 3 objects that mean peace of mind and serenity to you.  These things are very personal and should be chosen with care.
Keep your box covered until you need a special lift, at which time you can open it for a few minutes, luxuriate in the beautiful vibrations, and return, revitalized, to continue on your way."  
I go one step further, and decorate my box. I choose a paper mache box (like the ones at the craft store!) and paint it, or use a rub on metallic to accent the design.(You can find rub-ons at any art supply store or ceramic supply shop. They are addictive though, so be careful J! ) This week I am making a happy box for my new sister-in-law-to-be to help her through all the crud that comes with planning a wedding!  A mutual friend bought us roses when we were out on the night my brother-in-law proposed.  She accidentally forgot her rose when they went home, so I'm using the petals as part of the box!
