No pickling spice with the Corn Beef?

I have no pickling spice packets with my Corn Beef...
Can somebody tell me what spices I need to throw in the pot?

    I don't use the small packet of pickling spice that comes with the corned beef. I add garlic, bay leaf, whole peppercorns, onion, and sometimes a slight dose of red pepper.

    Pickling spice mixes are available in the supermarket.

      All the flavors are in the meat already, but bay leaves, coriander, cloves, mace, black pepper, cinnamon stick, allspice, mustard seeds...
