When a piece of vervain was carried it was said to help soldiers escape their enemies. A piece of vervain hung above the bed is said to prevent nightmares. Hanging a piece of vervain in the home was said to protect against evil spirits, lightning and storms. An infusion, sprinkled around the home, was said to keep evil from entering. The bruised plant worn around the neck was a good luck charm and guarded against headaches and venomous bites. One belief was that vervain would bring magical powers and immortality to its possessor.
