St. John's Wort is an ancient remedy that offers a range of powerful protective benefits. Often considered to be a weed, this sunny yellow flower, this herb has been used to stave off fevers and colds, to make soldiers invincible, and to attract love. If it is gathered on Midsummer eve or on any Friday, the herb is said to restore mental stability and offer respite from melancholy.
When hung over windows and doors, St. John's Wort will keep out ghosts, demons, and other evil spirits, and protect the house from lightning strikes and fire. As an incense, it will banish evil spirits and demons. It has also been used as a witches' bane. In divination, if placed in a pillow sachet, a young woman will dream of her future husband.
