The recipe book Little Lifesavers contains the recipe for the ring of riddance. It can be found in a treasure chest in Heliodor Castle in the Queen's Bedchamber during the second act. If two rings of riddance +3 or a devil's tail +3 are equipped at once, it is possible to become completely resistant to becoming cursed.
