A long term form of home protection is planting ivy and holly right next to your house and letting it grow up and around your house. This protects against evil.
This is going to be an amulet one. Take a small jar, like that you could put a string through the cork at the top and wear around your neck, and stuff an aloe leaf in there along with some anise. Then pour some (fresh, like you squeezed it) apple juice in there with it. The aloe is for peace, the anise for protection, and the apple for good luck. This should help you avoid being hurt, and finding peace wherever you are.
Also anise can be kept in your bed to protect against nightmares.
Oh if you're on the run try putting some basil in your wallet. This promotes wealth. Maybe it'll help you find money while you're on the run. =3
That's all for today folks. See you later.

EDIT: Speaking of Mystery's recommendation, if you want to use an actual apple for something, trying cutting it in half so you have the five seed parts (making a five pointed star.) Ya know, just try it out, instead of just having the whole apple sitting about or little cuts of it.
