Sorry for not getting back to you earlier. Work sometimes impinges on my food52 time! I got mine from World Spice Merchants in Seattle. https://www.worldspice.com/
Epicurious has a couple of recipes for it. I think susan g's suggestion of garam masala would be a pretty close match, and is easier to find.

Thank you both for the information! I didn't have any idea where to even start looking for this ingredient.

Susan g, that is a website i haven't come across yet. it looks quite informative and will be perusing it soon.

Recipes are found easily on the internet -- this site looks good: http://www.theepicentre.com/Spices/raselhanout.html
I'm sure you can simplify if you like. They're different, but Chinese 5 spice powder, Indian garam masala, or even apple/pumpkin pie spice could be a starting point, if they're on your shelf already.

It is a Moroccan spice blend. You can find it in Middle Eastern markets or at Williams Sonoma.
