FUN HISTORICAL FACTS! In Old World folklore, Elfshot or elfshot is believed to be caused by invisible elves20210906_131830 shooting invisible arrows at a person or animal, causing sudden shooting pains localised to a particular area of the body. The prevention or curing of elfshot comes from using a charm against the sudden stitch; the three plants used in the cure are  feverfew, red nettles and waybread. All have vaguely spear-shaped leaves, which may have suggested their use as a remedy for pains attributed to elf-arrows.
