Rosemary Charm For Toothache

Llosg ei bren (Rhosmari) hyd oni bo yn lo du, ac yna dyro ef mewn cadach

lliain cry, ac ira dy ddanedd ag ef; ac fo ladd y pryfed, ac a'u ceidw

rhag pob clefyd.--Y Brython, p. 339.

Burn a Rosemary bough until it becomes black, and then place it in a

strong linen cloth, and anoint thy teeth with it, and it will kill the

worm, and preserve thee from every kind of fever.

It was thought at one time that toothache was caused by a worm in the

tooth, as intimated above.
