Mix up some all natural, herbal fairy dust for yourself and the kids. My original recipe uses 1/2 cup lavender, 1/2 cup rose petals, 1/2 cup jasmine blossoms, 2 tablespoons chamomile, and about 1/4 cup star anise. It was ground in small batches in a coffee grinder and then combined together. We made some the other night that substituted 1/2 cup oak moss and 1/4 cup cedar for the jasmine and star anise. The result was a woodsy smell that my daughters loved. I think I preferred it as well. We made it in the food processor, which won't give you a powder, but does chop it up nicely. If you really need some glitz for it to be "real" fairy dust, toss in a couple teaspoons of glitter. To use for wish magic, pour some in the palm of your hand, make your wish, and then blow the dust out off your hand.
