Additional Comments:

May wine is traditionally made with sweet woodruff, and is a traditional German wine for special occasions. Any herbs can be substituted. I like to use a combination of chamomile flowers, rose geranium leaves, and lemongrass. The magickal properties will vary depending on what herbs you use. If using for a wedding, consider herbs specific to love, fidelity, and prosperity.
