A lover’s token
You will need
For each token:
• A GLASS BOTTLE WITH CORK, ANY SIZE WILL DO
• A HANDFUL OF CRUSHED, DRIED ROSE PETALS (preferably from flowers given to you by your lover)
• DRIED/FRESH ROSEMARY (for love and strength)
• DRIED/FRESH LAVENDER
• ROSE OIL OR WATER
• WAX (pink or red is good for love)
• PINK RIBBON
Crush the rose petals and place in the bottles.
Put in the rosemary and/or lavender, then add the oil or rose water almost to the top, leaving some room for air to circulate.
Cork the bottle and drip wax over the cork to seal the bottle.
Lay the ribbon on a flat surface.
Place the bottles one at either end of the ribbon.
Gradually move them towards one another along the ribbon to signify you coming together with your lover.
When they meet, tie the ribbon round your partner’s bottle and give it to them.
Place yours on a shelf, dresser or anywhere where it will not be disturbed.
These bottles are tangible evidence of the link between you and your lover. You may use them to remind you of the good times or soothe you in the bad. The ribbon signifies the link between you, so when you think of it you have immediately connected.
