This is protection from metal blades. Inspired by a spell from The Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells by Judika Illes, found on page 881 under the title “Blade Proof Spell”.
What you’ll need:
- Rowan wood
- Ash wood
- Ash from a fire (especially a fire used to forge a blade)
- Black charm bag or bottle with stopper and black sealing wax
Gather together your plants and fire ash. Stir them together and say,
"Protect me from fire Protect me from blades Protect me from the forge Protect me from malicious intent Protect me from sharp edges Protect me from dull brands Protect me from all harm."
Pour the mixture either in a black charm bag or a bottle with a stopper. If using the bottle, you should seal it with black wax over the stopper.
As you tie the charm bag or seal the bottle, say,
"Fire made you, blades But you cannot harm me I am safe from all harm."
- You could easily add a horseshoe charm, shavings from sharpening a blade, or a piece of forged metal in with the fire ash for extra protection.
