When a Witch besets the Animals (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

When a Witch besets the Animals.

Take enzian, juniper berries, ashes of pear tree wood, and salt, of one as much as of the other, of aloes and almond nuts, half the quantity. Pound all pure and fine. Mix well to­gether. After having a pail full of this powder, take a good handful of house leek, and cut it fine. Of this give to the cat­tle as much as may be taken between three fingers, and push it into their throats. Cut off of such cattle's tail a tuft of hair, so that it may perspire freely. This should be done dur­ing the waning of the moon, and treat the animals every morning to a fumigation with jumper berries.

Nettleseed mixed with salt is also good at all times.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
