Get twelve ivy leaves in honour of the twelve apostles and the person who is being cured to bless themself,and the person who is curing them, to bless the warts with each of the ivy leaves.The person who is curing is to bring those leaves home with him and bury them, and according as the leaves wither the warts will also wither. If one of those leaves are lost the warts will not be cured. My brothers and sister were cured by theses leaves.
