Vexation Box

This spell is for dealing with someone who is more of an annoyance than a threat, someone who really gets on your nerves or stresses you out by intruding in your life or violating your space. It is for someone you have already asked to stop but who persists in bothering you. It is not a spell to use on someone whose actions you object to within their own life or space. You need:

a.. a box

b.. two heads of garlic (or more, if you are using a big box or dealing with a group of people)

c.. herbs of protection

d.. a photograph of the person, or their name written on a piece of paper

Put everything in the box. Cover the box and give it a good hard shake, mentally yelling at the person to modify the behavior that annoys you. Put the box away, in a drawer or up on a shelf. Take it out and give it a hard shake, yelling at them, every time they annoy you.
After the first week or so you should seldom need to shake the box. Throw the box away in a few months, when the garlic begins to spoil.
