Protection Spell

Carefully gather a few thorns from the Blackthorn tree. 

On a piece of paper, 

write the name of the person or situation 

from which you seek protection, 

and then wrap it around the thorns.  

Bury this in the ground – if possible near the tree 

from which the thorns were collected.
