from KELD, released March 23, 2018
Anglo-Saxon metrical charms were sets of instructions, including ingredients for potions and words to be spoken aloud, meant to cure sicknesses or resolve troubles. Twelve of them survive in Old English, including this one for water-elf disease, which involves watery eyes and pale, ill-looking nails.

I whisper the ingredients in Anglo-Saxon, and have adapted the Old English text, keeping the style of the original charm, repeating certain phrases lots of times as you were supposed to.
