Witches have been a part of our culture from hundreds of years, from mentions in the Bible to the pandemonium of the Salem Witch Trials to the modern occult boom. Now more than ever, people have been dabbling in witchcraft and have allowed it to shape their identity. There are many different interpretations of witchcraft, however, if you find yourself in a spiritual supply store you'll find many of the common tools necessary for rituals.
