To attract the graces of your superiors at work, you should keep under your bed a Amaranth flower, picked a Friday and then dried in your bedroom and stored in a sandal wood box. Once the flower in the box, it shouldn't be opened.
The Amaranth was considered as sacred by the ancient Greeks and Romans. It was considered to favour friendship, meaning communication and affectionate relationships but also to keep away gossiping which could endanger a friendship.
The ancient soldiers kept often a strand with them, assuring them of the protection by their superiors. Even though cut and without water, the Amaranth can resist for a long time.
