25 Oct: An East Anglian spell to deter the Evil Eye

An East Anglian spell to deter the Evil Eye written in 1880: “When you have good reason to believe that you have been bewitched, get a frying pan, pull a hair out of your head and lay it in the pan; cut one of your fingers and let some of your blood fall on the hair.


Then, hold the pan over the fire until the blood begins to boil and bubble. You may then expect the witch to come and knock at your door three times, wanting to borrow something and hoping to make you talk.


But you must hold your peace. If you utter a word, you will be still more bewitched; if you refused to speak you will so work upon the witch’s blood as to cause her death, and then you will be set free.”
