How To Make Witch Bottles To Lift A Curse

Witch bottles may have started out as protection against witches but it wasn’t long before witches reclaimed the witch bottles and began using them for their own purposes, protection of the property still being the main one.

Today I’m going to dive into the history of these magical tools and teach you how to use them in your own craft.
