Protection from Fire


  • Mistletoe or wood ash
  • Blue drawstring bag
  • Cold water

To protect your home from the ravages of a devastating fire, place some mistletoe in a blue drawstring bag, douse it thoroughly with cold, clear water, and then immediately hang it in the "heart" of the house — where you and your family spend most of your time.

Or, light a piece of wood and burn to ash. Wet the ashes, let them dry, and hang in a blue drawstring bag. It is done.
