Ritual Uses: As is well known, the druids revered the mistletoe, especially when found growing on oak. It was (and still is) cut on Midsummer's Day, or else when the Moon is six days old. One stroke of the gold sickle was used to cut the herb, and it wasn't allowed to touch the ground.
Magical Uses: Long used for protection against lightening, disease, misfortune of every kind, fires, and so on, it is carried or placed in a appropriate spot for these uses. The leaves and berries are used. Women carry the herb to aid in conception. Burned, mistletoe banishes evil.
