I also included a Bind rune consisting of the Ogham runes for each member of the family to strengthen and hold fast the bonds of love and connection between Willow, Hazel, Oak and Reed
There is also in the main frame of the box a Willow memory stick with string to attach small offerings or significant objects (for example a lock of hair belonging to a loved one)
On the back of the box is an incantation:
You are Reed standing strong against the changing tides. Hazel stands beside you, with Oak and Willow too. Together you connect by canopy and root. The bonds of love to bind you.
