Ranging from Turkish nazar bracelets to the ghoulish pumpkins kept outside homes in India, humans have long sought after ways to protect themselves from the evil eye.

Amulets are hung in homes, worn on the person, and used in ritual.
Jewels form a substantial portion of amulets.
The “madaries” of Punjab treat ailments with enchanted water, red threads, and amulets strengthened with mantras and prayers.

Chant the mantra, “grhtad ulluptaha,” (snatched out of ghee) and tie the twig on your hand.
It will protect you from all manner of illnesses and enemies.
