This is an old old magickal formula – and posted here for educational and informational purposes only. Mistletoe berries are poisonous. This is the reason there will be dreams – some of them bad – some of them possibly fatal – so do not make or ingest this mixture!
Steep mistletoe berries, to the number of nine, in a mixture of ale, wine, vinegar and honey; take them on going to bed, and you will dream of your future lot. A storm in this dream is very bad; it is most likely you will then marry a sailor, who will suffer shipwreck at sea; but to see either sun, moon or stars is an excellent presage; so are flowers; but a coffin is an index of a disappointment in love.
This liquid is used as a hexing agent. Write your problem on paper and soak the paper in the vinegar. Allow it to dry and then burn it to be rid of the problem.
To make Four Thieves Vinegar, take a bottle of apple cider vinegar and add the following herbs in handfuls.
- Camphor (optional)
Heat the mixture to almost boiling once a day for four days in a row. Strain and cap it tightly. Store in a dark place.

Note: There are a number of different recipes for the Four Thieves Vinegar, and this is just one of them.
Here is a recipe for an herbal uncrossing vinegar you can use all year long. In a decorative jar or bottle, place 3 garlic cloves, 3 peppercorns, sprigs of rosemary, sage, and thyme, and a pinch of sea salt. Cover with vinegar. Close the lid and seal it with melted wax. Hold it in your hands and charge it with the following:
“Vinegar strong and herbs of power,
I charge you now within this hour.
Uncross, uncross, with powers imbue,
I charge you now, uncrossing brew.”
Leave the vinegar to sit undisturbed for one month, then break the seal and use it for uncrossing spells. Pour some over your doorstep to protect you from negative vibes. Write down your troubles and cover the list in the vinegar. Mix a little with water for a floor wash. Get creative.
Make a strong infusion by pouring boiling water over dragon’s tears (dragon’s blood resin). Add this to a bucket of floor wash rinse water with vinegar and scrub away.
