Hi again --

Thanks for posting these -- are they your own original formulas or were
they composed by others? If so, could you supply credits? This
information would be useful, as i intend to archive them in the Formulas
section at the Lucky Mojo Spells Archive. 

Also, what tradition do they come from -- the names and some of the
ingredients (e.g. comfrey root in a love bath) imply a post-modern,
hippie or New Age sensibility. Is that correct? 

The reason i say that comfrey root in a love bath implies jippie or
post-modern origins for the formula is that comfrey root had a great
vogue in popularity as a health and beauty aid beginning in the late
1960s. Prior to that time its major use in folk-magic was as a safe
travel amulet ensuring the helpfulness of those among whom one
sojourned. This was based on the doctrine of signatures, because comfrey
can strike roots anywhere.
