Well I know that the smell of cinnamon has been linked to the male libido and can be used as a type of aphrodisiac (of sortrs).. I don't know if that means anything to you or is helpful in any way?! lol good luck working it all out :-)
I know those two particular spices are used for bringing GOOD LUCK and PROSPERITY to a person in time. Maybe someone close to you or by has this type of GOOD spell working. Usually it is with several other spices placed in a poppit or small drawstring bag...sometimes people sprinkle it in their wallets, handbags etc.
