Wiccan Herbs in butter for all health.
Butter was probably first enhanced with herbs in the early Middle Ages, when it was wrapped in sorrel leaves and stored in clay pots filled with saltwater. The sorrel was used to keep the butter fresh and sweet, but it no doubt lent its lemony taste to the butter in the process.
Before the establishment of local creameries, every farmhouse had its own churn to make butter. Butter was an important commodity, and as such there were many superstitions about buttermaking. Evil spirits or a spiteful neighbor could jinx the entire project. A good buttermaker, therefore, knew a whole stock of prayers, charms, and incantations to say during the churning.
