Handmade Pokeberry Witches Ink ceremonial spell writing. This is a 2 dram glass bottle of hand made fermented pokeberry ink. This unusual handmade ink is very useful for ceremonial writing (as in spells) and is striking for cards or letters for special occassions.
...And it has a long history in our country...

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

In 1776, the framers of the American Declaration of Independence used a small pot of fermented pokeberry juice to draft the document. It must have originally appeared as though it was scribed in blood, as did many letters written home in pokeberry ink by soldiers in the field during the American Civil War. But, after exposure to light, pokeberry ink turns a nice, sensible shade of brown.

Fermentation gives this ink a very good shelf life. It should be used with a quill or fountain pen or a very fine brush on parchment or other porous paper.

Pokeweeds are herbs with dark red/ purple berries. Although they are toxic and inedible, we have found other uses for the juicy red fruits.One of the folk names for the plant is "inkberry."
