Southern John Root (sometimes called Dixie John root or Beth root) is an excellent root for spells regarding love, lust, family and general luck. Southern John can be carried to invite a marriage proposal or have a marriage proposal accepted and can also be carried to bring in prosperity. Some people drink the tea to draw luck in love.
