Protection Bath – Tormentil

Protection Bath

Tormentil tea is used to keep malevolent magick far away. Althought its identity is often confused with the root charm High John the Conqueror, they possess no herbal relationship. Tormentil, a frequent component of European magick is actually closely related to another Hoodoo herb charm, five-finger grass(cinquefoil). Those five fingers are used in gambling magick to draw luck and money, however five fingers also create a potent sign of protection.
Pour boiling water over tormentil to make an infusion. Add this to a tub filled with warm water and then soak in the water.
