"If you find you are constantly out of sorts, and you just know someone has put the evil eye on you?

"The answer is obvious: you must set about killing the witch who has bewitched you.

"But how do you set about killing a witch?"

I posted photos on here many years ago of the Bellarmine witch bottle i found, interesting thing about Reigate where the onion witch bottle was found is the 'Reigate tunnels' the only access was through the cellar of an old abandoned house, they were packed with early bottles some are the only ones known, there were other entrances but they'd been filled in, the council banned people from entering and sealed it off, as far as i know the bottle diggers only managed to rescue a small amount of bottles and there's still many gems in there.

A bottle dug from the cave 'Daffy's Elixir' cured all conditions.
