OldWorldWitchcraft.com was founded in 2013 by Dacha Avelin, out of pure love for Eastern and Central European Witchcraft. The hidden practices of the village Witches, secretly performing powerful rituals utilizing wild-harvested herbs, roots, crafted ritual blends, and pure beeswax ritual candles. Of course, we have expanded and elaborated on their secret practices, but the core has remained the same. And we are honored to share the craft of the Old Ways.
When we first began, European, specifically Eastern European Witchcraft, was nowhere to be found in North America. We desired to share powerful methods of European Witchcraft with those seeking to experience real magick - those who are eagerly wanting to explore Witchcraft and are genuinely seeking this type of alternative spirituality.
Initially, OldWorldWitchcraft.com was started as a blog. As a way to share an alternative practice and perspective with those not interested in censored (and ineffective) new age Witchcraft. Over the years, we launched a Witchcraft product line, which dramatically expanded this website and its following. We are proud to be a knowledge base and supplier for Witches worldwide.
All Old World Witchcraft products are crafted using only certified organic and responsibly wild-harvested plants, roots, and resins. Just as plants have medicinal attributes and chemical compounds, they too have energetic compounds. Internally used, herbs used can heal the sick, poison the enemies, support a peaceful night's sleep, or even help a nursing mother produce more milk. Magickally used, herbs can bring about success, deprive the life source of enemies (through curses), eliminate draining energies, and even enhance romantic relationships.
The importance of buying organic, or better yet, wild-harvested, magickal herbs should not be underestimated. Just as pesticides and harmful chemicals deteriorate the integrity of grown food, they too deteriorate the energetic content of magickal plants. We're committed to helping you reach spellwork success, which is why we have scoured the Earth for the very best organic and responsibly wild-harvested herbs, roots, and resins.
