Black Haw

Black Haw-Protection, gambling, luck, power and employment. Carry in the pocket while seeking employment, if you are having problems at work, or if you are asking for a raise.
Also known as: Devil's Shoestring, Stagbush, American Sloe

Devil's Shoestring is used for protection, to "trip up the Devil" or "hobble" him so he can't get in a house.

They are also carried for gambling luck and for job-getting.

Some folks drive them into the ground around the front door or place a bundle of them above the door lintel or mantelpiece.

In past days, it was not uncommon for folks to wear an ankle-bracelet made with nine pieces of Devil's Shoestring and a silver dime to prevent being "poisoned through the feet" by stepping in Goofer Dust.

Devil's Shoestring is widely believed to have the Power to Protect against Evil, Harm, or Gossip. Some folks carry them in a red flannel bag for Protection from Crossed Conditions, others carry them in a green flannel bag for Money Luck.

Some place a whole John the Conqueror Root and 7 DEVIL'S SHOE STRINGS in Whiskey for seven days and that they rub their money with this liquid before going out to gamble.
