Set these herbs in a dish and place them under an altar, and let nine masses be chanted over them. Then take the herbs and boil them in butter and mutton grease, and add thereto a large amount of holy salt. Strain this, and dispose of the herbs in running water. Use the ointment by smearing it on the forehead of the affected person before he goes to bed.
This is an old time English charm.
