And evil spirits around midsummer which can be the most dangerous
of the year, gather:
St John's Wort, Mugwort, Plantain, Corn Marigold, Dwarf Elder, Yarrow,
Ivy, Vervain and Orphins.
These must be picked at dawn with the dew still on them. Fashion them into garlands
and hang them over over the threshold to your home or alternatively burn them on
the fire to drive off the spirits of the air.
