green candles with the leaves and pods and
burn them to the socket, visualizing the
person (or yourself) as being completely
healthy. Also hang a small branch or twig
of eucalyptus over the sick bed.

green thread and wear to help heal sore
throats. Placed beneath the pillow, the
pods guard against colds.
