Although tansy can be toxic when used either internally or topically, the nature of the plant itself can be used to protect your home from parasites and illness. I’d suggest you first read about the plant before focusing on how you wish to use it. When you are ready, either buy a plant from a reputable nursery, or take a cutting from an established plant that was grown by someone you trust. Choose a spot near your front door, and prepare the soil for your plant. Dig the hole during the Dark Moon, and leave it alone for three days. On the fourth day, plant the tansy, and water the area thoroughly. As you plant, say this chant:
Tansy fair, so green and bright,
Keep my doorstep in your sight.
Guard and ward from pests and ills,
And enhance my healing skills.
