|Hi everybody - I've lived long enough to know that there really are 'more things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of in MY philosophy'
One of my hobbies is metal detecting and last year I dug up a 400 year old Witch Bottle. After a lot of research on the find, I became so intrigued that I started to look for more. I found many more. Do you know that centuries ago almost everybody had one of these bottles in an effort to protect themselves from spiritual harm. Amazing!! They buried them around the house and they are still there, just waiting to be discovered.
The contents of these bottles include hair, urine, nail clippings, rusty nails, glass and many other items from long-dead people, hoping for protection in life.
My research and discoveries lead me to start my own website about witch bottles and I cannot believe the current popularity of these items. But I knew that there was much wisdom beyond the bottle, and that is what I now seek.
An it harm none - do as thou wilt
