According to the Romanies, extricating yourself or someone you care for from a streak of bad luck and misfortune is not difficult.
Take three small jars and nine garlic cloves, and a number of thorns from a white rose. Stick the thorns into the garlic cloves and place three cloves in each jar.
Each jar should be buried within sight of a church porch while you say the Lord’s Prayer.
Note: Best done under the light of a full moon.
From The Good Spell Book
To entice a lover to return, pick five roses on Midsummer Night’s Eve. Bury one under a yew tree at midnight. Place the second outside a church gate. Put the third at a crossroads with the head pointing in the direction of home. Place the fourth beside running water. The fifth rose should be put under your pillow for three nights, then buried.
