The Rowan Cross
On Friday morning, pick two small twigs from rowan-tree. Lay these twigs cross-wise and tie them together with a red thread. Doing this, say the wards:
This cross for protection
Against creatures of this and other world,
Against alive and against dead,
Against their evil thoughts and malicious acts.
Attach a red lace to the rowan cross and carry this amulet on our neck.
